One of Pablo Picasso's best-known portraits has been sold at auction in New York for $45m (£35m).

Femme Assise, Robe Bleu (Seated Woman in Blue Dress) features one of his many lovers, Dora Maar.

During World War Two, the Nazis seized the painting but were intercepted on their way from Paris to Moravia by French Resistance fighters.

In 2015, Picasso's Women of Algiers sold for $179m at Christie's - a record for a picture sold at auction.

Seated Woman went to a US collector and six years ago it was sold for $26m.
