Spanish painter Pablo Picasso was almost certainly the most famous and influential artist of the 20th century, with his name being as recognizable as the Renaissance greats and his works changing the course of abstract art. You probably thought you’d never have the opportunity of owning an authentic Picasso of your own, but Sotheby’s and MGM Resorts are giving you that chance.

The renowned auction house and hospitality giant are teaming up for the Picasso: Masterworks from the MGM Resorts Fine Art Collection auction. The auction includes 11 of Picasso’s paintings, all of which were previously on display at the Bellagio’s Picasso restaurant in Las Vegas. The standout work is 1938’s Femme au béret rouge-orange, a portrait of one of Picasso’s most notable muses, Marie-Thérèse Walter. The collection covers a wide swath of the artist’s work, from some WWII-era cubist still lifes to a pair of oversized canvases from the twilight of his life in 1969 and more. Co-hosted by Sotheby’s and MGM Resorts, the Picasso: Masterworks auction will take place live at the Bellagio in Las Vegas on Oct. 23. You can register your interest to bid at Sotheby’s website.
