Pablo Picasso’s 1932 painting could rake in $55 million when it goes up at auction next month. The portrait, called “Woman Sitting Near a Window,” shows his teenage lover and “golden muse” from a critical point in his career. Picasso was 50 when he had an affair with 17-year-old Marie-Thérèse Walter, who became the inspiration for some of his most sought-after sculptures, drawings and canvases. When the piece last came to auction in February 2013, it sold for $44.8 million, including fees.
