    One of the world’s greatest collections of Cubist art, belonging to make-up magnate Leonard A Lauder, is to go on public display in New York for the first time.

    The Cubist art movement is often seen as the most radical of the 20th century, and many of its finest works are to be shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
