Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale at Sotheby's

Sotheby's is holding its Impressionist and Modern Art Evening sale tonight. The sale will be led by Edvard Munch’s "The Scream", an image that reflects the pulsating anguish of modern society. This painting is among the most recognizable images in the history of art. Executed in 1895, this work is one of four versions of the painting, and the only one still in private hands. Also on offer is a series of Modern masterpieces from the collection of Theodore J. Forstmann including a brilliant wartime portrait by Picasso inspired by his muse, Dora Maar, a monument to anti-painting by Joan Miro from 1931 and one of Chaim Soutine's most magnificent portraits,Le Chasseur de Chez Maxim's.
