Pablo’s one of the best-known portraits has been sold at auction in New York for $45m (£35m). Femme Assise, Robe Bleu (Seated Woman in Blue Dress) features one of his many lovers, Dora Maar. Dora Maar and Picasso had an intense relationship for nine years. He painted Seated Woman in 1939, when he was 58 and she was 31.
The Nazis seized the painting during the World War two but were intercepted on their way from Paris to Moravia by French Resistance fighters.
In 2015, Picasso’s Women of Algiers sold for $179m at Christie’s – a record for a picture sold at auction.
