Las Vegas (AP) -- Eleven Pablo Picasso artworks will be on display Friday and Saturday at a Las Vegas Strip resort, ahead of a Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art auction that host Sotheby’s estimates could fetch a combined $100 million.

The nine paintings and two ceramic pieces had been displayed inside the Picasso restaurant at the Bellagio until owner MGM Resorts decided earlier this year to sell them.
