NEW YORK (AP) - A work by Roy Lichtenstein (LIHK'-tehn-styn) is going on the auction block in New York City. The presale estimate is up to $40 million.
"Sleeping Girl" has been exhibited only once before _ at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in 1989-90. It's among a series of sexy comic book-inspired images Lichtenstein created in the 1960s. It shows a woman with closed eyes and flowing blond hair
The work will be offered at Sotheby's on May 9. It's from the estate of Beatrice and Phillip Gersh of Los Angeles.
Another Lichtenstein sold for $43.2 million at Christie's in November. It's called: "I Can See the Whole Room! ... and There's Nobody in it!" The price was a record for the artist.
