Artist Pablo Picasso's "Guitar on a Table" painting sold at an auction Monday for $37.1 million after spending 30 years at the New York Museum of Modern Art.
The cubist, which was sold at Sotheby's, had been in the private collection of CBS founder William S. Paley since 1946.
The painting was lent to the Museum of Modern Art after Paley died in 1990.
Sotheby's started selling off several masterpieces long lent to the Museum of Modern Art to fund an expansion of the museum’s digital footprint.
The yellow, pink and teal Picasso painting, which Paley purchased as a young collector, was expected to sell for at least $20 million. Two bidders competing for the painting increased its price even further before a telephone bidder won the artwork.
Other pieces from Paley’s estate up for auction on Monday included Joan Miró’s 1949 abstract "Painting," which sold for $1.4 million. The figure exceeded its estimate of $700,000 to $1 million.
Sotheby's helped a foundation for Paley sell his 1963 painting "Three Studies for Portrait of Henrietta Moraes" by Francis Bacon for $27 million last month in London.
Sales at Sotheby’s on Monday also included the estate of former Whitney Museum of American Art President David Solinger, which surpassed $138 million and was led by a swirling 1950 untitled collage by Dutch painter Willem de Kooning that sold for $33.6 million.
Another Picasso work, Solinger’s 1927 red-and-black view of a "Woman in an Armchair," sold for $10 million, a figure that failed to reach its $15 million estimate.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Alphabet's Google will pay $391.5 million to settle allegations by 40 states that the search and advertising giant illegally tracked users' locations, the Michigan attorney general's office said Monday. In addition to the payment, Google must be more transparent with consumers about when location tracking is occurring and give users detailed information about location-tracking data on a special web page, the Iowa attorney general's office said. "When consumers make the decision to not share location data on their devices, they should be able to trust that a company will no longer track their every move," Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller said in a statement.

Broadway's been around, you know, since the 1700s.

And then we have the making of a Broadway show, which is all of the behind-the-scenes roles that actually make a show come to life.”The Museum of Broadway opens on November 15, 2022

When The Lion King opened on Broadway 25 years ago, it immediately proved to be a critical and commercial success.

One of Taymor’s many innovations was inspired by Japanese Bunraku-style puppetry which allowed the audience to see the actors, with animal masks on their heads evoking
