STOCKHOLM, Oct 14 (AFP) - One of Pablo Picasso's early paintings, "Guitar and Score on a Pedestal Table" from 1920, will go under the hammer in Sweden in November, a Stockholm auction house said Friday.

"We sell prints by Picasso fairly often, but it is unusual that originals painted by the man himself come out on the market despite his prolific production," Auktionsverk spokeswoman Anna Hamilton told AFP.

Bidding will start at two million kronor (254,700 dollars, 212,600 euros).

The Cubist work was painted in Juan-les-Pins in southern France.

It will be sold as part of the Modern Art and Works of Art auction at Auktionsverk, the world's oldest auction house, on November 2-4.
