Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 25 giugno 2020

London – As part of ONE: A Global Sale of the 20th Century, Christie’s will present a selection of works by Spanish and international masters from the Suñol Soler Collection in London on 10 July. Encompassing modern and post-war painting and sculpture, the works are being sold to benefit the Fundació Glòria Soler and the Fundació Suñol, both established by the collector Josep Suñol Soler in his native Barcelona. Working together as a single entity, the foundations are committed to furthering Josep Suñol Soler’s belief in civic responsibility and social transformation, uniting art and philanthropy in order to bring about vital global change. The group will be led by Alexander Calder’s mesmerising mobile Une lune bleue (1971, estimate: £2,500,000-3,500,000) which is presented alongside Pintura No. 5, a powerful large-scale example of Manolo Millares’ extraordinary burlap creations (1959, estimate: £900,000-1,200,000) and Jean Arp’s unique biomorphic carving Bourgeon sur coup (1960, £800,000-1,200,000). Antoni Tàpies’s richly textural painting Ocre amb cinc entallats, (1964, £400,000-600,000), Antonio Saura’s expressive abstract painting Sera (1961, estimate: £200,000-300,000), and Julio González’s revolutionary linear sculpture Grand personnage debout (1935, estimate: £600,000-900,000) all celebrate the legacy of Spanish post-war art in the collection. The proceeds from the sale of the Tàpies painting will directly benefit research into COVID-19. Three further works by Ettore Colla, Luis Feito and Gastone Novelli will be presented in London in the autumn.Carmen Schjaer, Managing Director, Christie’s Spain: “We are honoured to offer such a strong selection of works by artists that demonstrate the diverse collection of Josep Suñol Soler. His philanthropic legacy unites art and scientific research which is very pertinent to the times that we are living in today. Our ground-breaking relay-format auction feels like the perfect place to showcase the spirit of innovation on which this collection was founded. The funds raised through the sale of these works will allow them to continue scientific research through the Fundació Glòria Soler. The aim is to accelerate research into COVID-19, fulfilling Josep Suñol Soler’s belief that marrying the humanities, arts and sciences can affect change that benefits civic society.”
