A $25 million Giacometti sculpture, “Trois Hommes qui Marchent I,” offered by the Montreal-based dealer Landau Fine Art is one of the classic modern pieces already causing a stir at the 41st Art Basel.

The modern and contemporary art fair in Basel, Switzerland, opened its marketplace to VIPs on June 15.

Bloomberg reports that Louise Bourgeois’s 5-foot-high (1.5 meters) mixed-media work on paper, “A Baudelaire (#7),” will be priced upwards of $650,000 by Brussels-based dealer Xavier Hufkens. The artist passed away in May.
