A rare Picasso painting will be auctioned off in London next month.  The 1937 work titled "Femme au beret et a la robe quadrillee" (Woman in beret and checked dress), inspired by the painter's French lover Marie-Therese Walter is being shown in Hong Kong, Taipei, Los Angeles and New York before being sold. VOA's Zlatica Hoke reports the painting's Hong Kong debut is a clear indication of the growing importance of the Asian art market.
