“So this remarkable composition has been in a family collection since the late 1960s, since it last traded hands back then. It's been cherished as a family heirloom, and it hails from private Swiss collection. So it's the first time it's appearing at auction. It's been unseen from the public eye for decades, for over half a century, actually."
The painting is expected to fetch up to $10 million
