Artcurial's modern art sale on June 1 will offer hundreds of works by important artists of the late 19th and early-20th centuries.
Highlights among them include The Circus, circa 1920, by Marie Laurencin, a work that is particularly interesting for its arabesque and soft tones, unique to the artist.
Formerly owned by the Paul Rosenberg Gallery, the painting will auction with an estimate of €150,000-200,000.
Elsewhere in the sale, a drawing by Georges Pierre Seurat of a man in evening clothes, entitled Encore and dated to circa 1881-1891, will also appear.
Marked out by its overwhelming contrasts of shadows and light, the work - previously held, and stamped, by the Moline gallery - carries an estimate of €200,000-250,000.
The auction will also present a remarkable collection of 19 works by the artist Francisco Bores consigned from a private collection.
A highlight among Bores' oils, watercolours, and drawings in ink or charcoal is his depiction of a reclining nude from 1948. It is priced €30,000-40,000.
Artcurial's sale takes place at the Hôtel Marcel Dassault, on the prestigious Champs-Elysées avenue of Paris.
