Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 10 giugno 2019

London – Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction, will be held on 25 June, part of ‘20th Century at Christie’s’, a series of auctions taking place from 17 to 26 June 2019. The auction will be led by Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Sabado por la Noche (Saturday Night) (1984, estimate: £7,500,000-11,000,000, illustrated above). Further highlights include Jean Dubuffet’s Cérémonie (Ceremony) (1961, estimate: £7,000,000-10,000,000), one of only nine paintings by Dubuffet from his ‘Paris Circus’ series over two meters in scale, of which three are in museum collections, and Francis Bacon’s ‘Man at a Washbasin’ (1954, estimate: £5,000,000-7,000,000) from the height of his existential blue period. Representing those at the cutting edge of contemporary art practice, works by Cecily Brown, René Daniëls, Dana Schutz, Tschabalala Self, Amy Sillman, Kara Walker, Jonas Wood and Rose Wylie will also be offered. The works will be on view in London from 21 to 25 June 2019. The Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Auction will take place on 26 June 2019, featuring 138 works. It will be led by Alex Katz’s Ada with White Dress (1958, estimate: £450,000-550,000), a seminal early portrait of Katz’s wife and muse, which was painted the year after the couple met and held in the artist’s personal collection for over two decades. These works will be shown alongside the Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction from 21 to 25 June 2019. The Post-War and Contemporary Art June Season will also include Xhibition, an exhibition in association with Galería Javier López & Fer Francés, that explores the relevance and versatility of the sign `X´ – or cross, in the work of Antoni Tàpies, highlighted by Gran creu negra (1990). The exhibition will be displayed in the St James’s galleries at Christie’s, King Street from 21 June to 19 July 2019.
