NEW YORK (AP) — A landscape Vincent van Gogh created a year before his death will lead Sotheby’s impressionist and modern art sale in New York this fall.

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

It’s estimated to bring $50 million to $70 million. The auction record for a van Gogh is $82.5 million.

Last year, Sotheby’s sold another Arles landscape by the artist for $66.3 million.

The Nov. 5 sale also includes Pablo Picasso’s “Nude With Crossed Legs.” The 1903 pastel was created during the artist’s Blue Period. It has a presale estimate of $8 million to $12 million

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