Late Van Gogh may fetch €38m

A late Vincent van Gogh painting and a 1954 work by Mark Rothko from the collection of Rachel "Bunny" Mellon are going up for auction next month.

Van Gogh's The Allee of Alyscamps from 1888 could sell for more than €38m at Sotheby's on May 5.

It was created during a two-month period when the artist was working side-by-side with Paul Gauguin.

The current van Gogh record is €78m.

The auction house also is offering Rothko's Untitled (Yellow and Blue) on May 12.
