A landscape created by impressionist master Vincent van Gogh a year before his tragic death – will lead off Sotheby’s impressionist and modern art sale in New York this fall.

“Landscape Under a Stormy Sky,” was painted in 1889 and depicts a field in Arles in the south of France.

The auction record for a van Gogh is $82.5 million – and this work is estimated to bring $50 million to $70 million.

The Sotheby’s November 5th sale also includes Pablo Picasso’s “Nude With Crossed Legs.”

The 1903 pastel was created during the artist’s Blue Period – and has a presale estimate of $8 million to $12 million

The two master works are among a group of late 19th and early 20th century pieces from Belgian collectors Louis and Evelyn Franck.
