Cohen’s ‘Liz,’ $10 Million Bear Star in $1.4 Billion Art Sales

A 1905 Maurice de Vlaminck landscape owned by hedge-fund manager Steve Cohen could sell for as much as $25 million at Christie’s International this week, more than double the artist’s $10.8 million auction record.

As the big May art auctions start, “the market sentiment is very strong,” said New York dealer Christophe van de Weghe. “There are a lot of new buyers who want to get into the game. They like sure value.”
