11 of Pablo Picasso’s artworks owned by hotel group MGM Resorts are set to go up for auction in Las Vegas in October. The pieces had long been a staple at Picasso, a Michelin-awarded French and Spanish restaurant that is inspired by Picasso himself and located inside the Bellagio Hotel. The sale includes five paintings, whose combined worth is estimated at $104.2 million, as reported by Sotheby’s auction house, the organizer of the sale.

According to Brooke Lampley, Sotheby’s chairman, the collection “features works from 1917 to 1969 — which covers the entire period of Picasso’s career”. One of the highlights of the auction is Picasso’s “Femme au béret rouge-orange”, an oil painting of Marie-Thérèse Walter, a young French woman who was his lover and muse. The initiative is part of MGM Resorts’ attempts to turn Las Vegas into a bigger art destination, Lampley said.

MGM said that the sale would help its goal of “deepening diversity and inclusion” within its art collection. Other works in the event would include 1969’s “Buste d’homme,” a painting from the artist’s late period, and “Aiguière — Visage,” a white terracotta vessel he produced in 1954. The sale, which coincides with the artist’s 140th birthday is expected to be the largest fine arts auction in the history of Las Vegas.
