On February 2, Christie's will hold its 10th annual Art of the Surreal sale dedicated to the work of artists associated with Andre Breton and his circle. Works up for auction include two paintings by Marcel Duchamp's lifelong friend Francis Picabia -- one, Nerii, Duchamp characterized as pointing the way into a third dimension, and is expected to bring $800,000 or more. Multiple canvasses by Max Ernst, Rene Magritte and Giorgio de Chirico are also represented, as are single works by Yves Tanguy and Roberto Matta.
