Susan YoungLondon – Henry Moore’s ground-breaking 1951 modernist sculpture Reclining Figure: Festival, commissioned for the Festival of Britain in 1951, will lead the sculpture section of Christie’s 250th anniversary auction, Defining British Art, in London on 30 June (estimate: £15-20 million). It will be offered alongside further large-scale major British sculptures by Dame Barbara Hepworth, Sea Form (Atlantic), 1964 (estimate: £3-5 million) and Lynn Chadwick, Back to Venice, 1988, which is offered from the artist’s estate (estimate: £1.4-1.8 million).Cyanne Chutkow, Deputy Chairman, Impressionist & Modern Art, Christie’s: “Reclining Figure: Festival is one of the great masterpieces of Moore’s oeuvre and is arguably his most masterful and elegant sculptural synthesis of form and space. Privately held in an American collection for almost a half century, this work is a testament to the owners’ discerning and sophisticated artistic sensibility.” (photo: Susan Young)
