The 19 million dollar Latin American collection also includes pieces by Claudio Bravo (Chile) and Francisco Zuñiga (Costarica).
Virgilio Garza, Sothesby's director of Latin American Art, expects Botero's Card Players II, inspired in a painting by French painter Paul Cezanne (1839-1906), to reap 1.8 million dollars.
The auction involves Cuban Wifredo Lam's Femme Cheval (1954) with price ranging from 400,000 to 600,000 dollars and 28 Centimeters on Earth (1955), rated in 200,000 and 300,000 dollars.
