    Christie's auction house says "Abstraktes Bild" is estimated to sell for $20 million to $25 million on Nov. 12. It says the English guitarist and songwriter bought the painting at auction in 2001.

    The large oil painting was executed in 1994. It has a rich palette of red, purple, violet and yellow evocative of a fall landscape.

    Richter's "Domplatz, Mailand" set a record for any living artist at auction in May when it sold at Sotheby's for $37 million.
