Rare Picasso works worth over £6m to be sold in October auction alongside Hirst and Warhol

Regent's Park in London is set to be the home of four very special artworks by the world renowned Spanish artist Pablo Picasso.

The works, believed to worth over £6m ($9.3m) will be exhibited as part of a show called "The House of the Noble Man" which is running from October 12 to 20 at 2 Cornwall Terrace in Regents park, London.

The works will go on sale alongside an 1875 Cézanne oil on canvas work, during Frieze week.

According to the co-curator of the exhibit, the four Picasso works on offer will include a 1905 drawing entitled "The Family of Saltimbanques", a 1914 Cubist painting titled "Nature Morte au Gobelet" and the 1969 piece "Buste d'Hommeà la Pipe" which is currently price at £3m ($4.6).

In addition to this the exhibit will have works by Yves Klein, Gerhard Richter, Egon Schiele and the more familiar names of Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst.

The Picasso works are believed to have come from anonymous dealers, whilst a selection of pieces has also come from Charles Saatchi's "New Sensations 2010" roster of emerging artists. 

However, for many collectors the undoubted focus of the event will be the four works by Picasso.

Picasso's work is arguably some of the most valued and collectible on the market due to his position as a pioneer and co-creator of the artistic form of Cubism.

There works subverted the traditional notion of painting an object, instead breaking them up and re-assembling them in a abstract work to create an ambiguous and thought provoking piece of art.

And with the Frieze exhibit offering collectors a variety of works in one of the most accessible cities in the world, collectors could come from across the globe to get a chance at investing in Picasso's art

Furthermore, based on previous auctions this year, next month's event could even see record prices for the Spaniard's work.

Back in February 2010, a Picasso portrait of his second wife Jacqueline entitled "Por Tete de Femme" sold for £8.1m ($12.6m) which was double the pre-auction estimate.

Whilst more recently in May 2010, Picasso made art market history with the sale of his work "Nude Green Leaves and Bust" which fetched a world record price of $106,482,500 (₤70,278,450).
