Together, the 10 works from the Franck Collection are estimated to achieve more than $80 million in the 5 November auction. Highlights will travel to San Francisco, Taipei, Hong Kong, Brussels and London this fall, before returning to New York for exhibition opening 31 October.

Also, the auction will feature one of the finest works by Kazimir Malevich remaining in private hands: "Mystic Suprematism (Black Cross on Red Oval)". The painting is the last of a renowned group of five canvases restituted to the artist’s heirs in 2008 to be offered for sale, and as such represents the final opportunity to acquire a seminal masterpiece by Malevich from this celebrated collection. "Mystic Suprematism" epitomizes the 20th century European avant-garde at its most revolutionary, and comes to auction this November with an estimate of $35/45 millions.
