NEW YORK (AP) — An erotic painting of a cabaret singer by Pablo Picasso with a second picture on the reverse side could bring over $60 million at auction.
Picasso's "The Night Club Singer" from his Blue Period was created in 1901.
A bawdy picture of his dealer, Pere Manach, is on the back. Sotheby's says it was revealed during a 2000 conservation. An inscription indicates it was intended as a gift to Manach.
The seller is billionaire businessman William Koch (kohk), who displayed it so it could be seen from both sides.
