A risqué drawing of a topless woman, two men and a horse by revolutionary artist Pablo Picasso will go on auction in Cape Town on 7 June.

Experts value the drawing at between R3 million and R3.5 million.

It is the first Picasso sketch to go on auction in South Africa.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Anton Welz from Stephan Welz & Co (the auctioneer).
