Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 marzo 2019

Milan. Dedicated to offering the best of 20th century Italian art, Christie’s annual auction in Milan, now part of the Thinking Italian series aligned with our global Post-War and Contemporary sales, will take place on 3 and 4 of April. Highlighted by Lucio Fontana’s intense pink-red Concetto Spaziale, Attesa (illustrated above left, estimate: €800,000 – 1,200,000), the sale features historical works by major icons such as Gino Severini, Alberto Boccioni, Alberto Burri, Enrico Castellani and Piero Manzoni, through to a group of contemporary works led by Gino De Dominicis. The auction also includes a refined group of two still lifes and one landscape by Giorgio Morandi; a special selection from the series of “lattices” by Piero Dorazio; a collection of iconic 1960s works by Mario Schifano and an important group of paintings which trace the evolution of figurative art in Italy between the 1920s and the 1940s. A selection of highlights from Thinking Italian Milan will tour to the MAXXI Museum in Rome on 15 March, followed by Turin on 20 March, before the full sale exhibition in Milan from 29 March to 2 April 2019. The sale also includes a group of 9 works by post-war artists including Carla Accardi, Giulio Paolini and Piero Dorazio, the proceeds of which will benefit the Water Academy SRD, an international Research Center that seeks to raise awareness of issues relating to water, in line with the values of sustainable and responsible development, in order to promote a New Culture of Water.
