    Fresh-to-market works by modern masters Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger from a Private American Collection lead Sotheby’s sale of Impressionist and Modern Art in New York on May 7.

    The works by Matisse and Léger never before have appeared at auction, while Le Sauvetage by Picasso was last seen a decade ago. La Séance du matin is one of Matisse’s celebrated paintings from Nice in the 1920’s ($20-30 million); Le Sauvetage depicts Picasso’s muse Marie-Thérèse Walter in the early 1930’s ($14/18 million) and Deux figures et une fleur is an example of Léger’s monumental imagery of the post-war period ($3/5 million).

    The collection will be on view at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center from 3–7 April 3-7; at Sotheby’s London galleries from April 11-15 and in  New York from May 2.
