The cubist painting, created in 1955, was part of a special sale at Christie's called "Looking Forward to the Past." Picasso, who died in 1973, painted it as an homage to his friend and rival, Henri Matisse, the famous French impressionist.
"Les Femmes d'Alger” is considered as a masterpiece of contemporary art. It features nude courtesans, a common theme for Picasso, and is painted in his signature cubist style.
