Christie's auction house said on Friday that Edouard Manet's 1881 celebrated portrait "Le Printemps," which has been owned by the same family for a century, will be auctioned for the first time this year and could fetch up to $35 million. The rare profile painting of the young Parisian actress Jeanne Demarsy, one of Manet's most famous works, will be among the highlights of Christie's Impressionist and Modern Art sale in New York on November 5. The sale follows Christie's best spring auctions in years and a boom in the global art and antique market. Sales last year rose 8 percent to $65.9 billion, the highest level since 2007.
