Practically synonymous with art itself, Pablo Picasso needs no introduction. But for the first time on 23 October 2021, we see Picasso in perhaps his most comprehensive and personal collection ever assembled. Coinciding with Pablo Picasso’s 140th birthday this October, MGM Resorts and Sotheby’s will present a singular, first-of-its-kind marquee Evening Sale of masterworks by the legendary artist from the MGM Resorts Fine Art Collection. Conducted live from the Bellagio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, this historic auction will comprise eleven works, all until recently on display in the Bellagio’s renowned Picasso restaurant. Marking the first ever marquee auction in North America outside Sotheby’s signature New York auction venue, this event is highlighted by Picasso’s Femme au béret rouge-orange, a stunning portrait of one of the artist’s most influential lovers and muses. Sotheby’s is proud to present Picasso: Masterworks from the MGM Resorts Fine Art Collection, a landmark auction celebrating the life and work of one of the world’s most iconic and influential artists. Accompanying the auction is a four-day exhibition, A Celebration of Art, Luxury and Culture, specially curated by Sotheby’s, which will be on view at MGM’s ARIA resort October 21–24.
