A British auction house says a sculpture by French Impressionist Edgar Degas is expected to sell for at least 9 million pounds ($12 million dollars) or as much as 12 million pounds ($17 million) when it goes on the block in London.

Degas' "Petite danseuse de quatorze ans" or "Little 14-year-old dancer" is a bronze depicting a young ballerina with her chin tilted up and hands clasped behind her back. It is one of the highlights of Sotheby's Tuesday sale of Impressionist
and modern art.

Other works for sale include Amedeo Modigliani's oil painting "Cariatide." It is expected to sell for between 6 million and 8 million pounds. "Strassenszene" or "Street Scene" by German Expressionist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. The painting depicts a Berlin street scene and is estimated to sell for 5 million to 7 million pounds.
