Picasso Friend $170 Million Collection in Christie’s Sale

Art from the collection of the Geneva-based dealer Jan Krugier, who sold works for the family of Picasso, is estimated to raise at least $170 million when it is auctioned in New York in November.

More than 150 lots will be sold in evening and day events at Christie’s International on Nov. 4 and 5, the London-based auction house said today in an e-mailed statement. Impressionist and modern works by artists such as Picasso, Giacometti and Kandinsky dominate the sale, which also features contemporary pieces, Old Masters, Latin American and African art.
