A Christie's employee walks among various pieces of art by Miro during a press call on Jan. 30, 2014, at Christie's in London, England. The works make up part of the 'Impressionist and Moden Art' evening sale and 'The Art of the Surreal' evening sale which will both take place on Feb. 4, 2014, at Christie's auction house. The sales are led by Femme au costume turc dans un fauteuil, 1955, by Pablo Picasso, which comes to the market for the first time in over 55 years. The sale will contain items from artists that also include Giacometti, Monet, Leger, Mondrian, and Magritte as well as many others.
