Amedeo Modigliani’s Jeanne Hébuterne (au foulard) is being offered at the Sotheby’s London Impressionist & Modern Art evening sale on June 21, the auctioneer announced.

It is among the many portraits Modigliani painted of his lover Jeanne Hébuterne – revealing a tender moment between a pioneer in the world of modern art and his most loyal muse.

Having been in a private collection since 1986, the painting is expected to fetch in excess of £28 million (HK$312 million) and will be offered alongside Pablo Picasso’s Cubist masterpiece of his lover Fernande Olivier.
