Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 26 maggio 2019

London. Christie’s Modern British Art Evening Sale on 17 June 2019 will launch ‘20th Century at Christie’s’, a series of auctions that will take place in London from 17 to 26 June 2019. The sale will be led by Barbara Hepworth’s The Family of Man (Figure 8, The Bride) (1970, estimate: £2,000,000-3,000,000) which explores the complexity of the human figure, and Henry Moore’s Working Model for Standing Figure: Knife Edge (1961, estimate: £1,000,000-1,500,000), one of the most successful compositions of this period for Moore. The sale also includes works by British painters such as L. S. Lowry, Stanley Spencer, David Bomberg and William Roberts, as well as works from the Scottish Colourists Samuel John Peploe and John Duncan Fergusson. Paintings by Ben Nicholson and Roderic O’Conor also feature, offered from the collection of Drue Heinz.
The Modern British Art Day Sale will follow on 18 June. Highlights of the sale include 20 works offered from the estate of L. S. Lowry, a group of Elisabeth Frink sculptures from the collection of Mary Carswell, paintings by Franciszka Themerson, and an important group of early paintings by Frank Bowling from the collection of David Methuen Campbell. The third edition of Sculpture in the Square, an outdoor sculpture garden set within St James’s Square, London, is on view now until 17 June. It features 10 works that will be offered in the Modern British Art Evening Sale by Barbara Hepworth, Barry Flanagan, Henry Moore, Elisabeth Frink and Emily Young. Included are four works from a Private North American Collection, that have adorned an East Coast garden for decades. Estimates in the Modern British Art season range from £3,000 to £2,000,000, offering collectors of every level an opportunity to acquire pieces by the celebrated masters of the 20th century.
