Art Market Monitor has published a brief article bringing attention to this artwork by Picasso that made $728,000 (inc. fees) at Phillips this month. This linoleum cut print (yes a print) was inspired from a portrait by the sixteenth century German painter Lucas Cranach the younger (d.1586). The work, dating to 1958, is entitled Portrait de jeune fille, d’après Cranach le Jeune.

I wonder how many original portraits one could acquire at the upcoming old masters sales for $728,000? Let's hope interest in such pictures might spark investment in more ancient artworks too.
