    Parc des Princes, a monumental masterpiece by Nicolas de Staël comes up at Christie’s in Paris on October 17 during FIAC (the International Contemporary Art Fair) with an estimate of 18-25 million. The work has remained in the family of Nicolas de Staël since his passing in 1955, and constitutes a key element in the history of post-war art.

    Completed in 1952 the painting is the zenith of a series of soccer players which the artist completed after attending a France Sweden match with his wife in March of that year in the renowned Parisian stadium.
