Painting Of Picasso's Mistress To Be Auctioned

A painting for which Picasso paid a price is expected to fetch up to $29 million when it goes on auction next week. It depicts the painter's young mistress, who was just 17 when they met. They kept their relationship secret for years. But when the painting went on display of the woman asleep and partially nude, Picasso's wife took note. Their marriage soon ended.
