London – As part of ONE: A Global Sale of the 20th Century on 10 July 2020, Christie’s will offer seminal paintings by Adrian Ghenie and Cecily Brown as leading highlights in London. An extraordinary, cinematic vision spanning two metres in width, The Arrival 3 (2015, estimate: £3,000,000-5,000,000) is an outstanding large-scale painting by Adrian Ghenie. Against a vibrant backdrop of rich, abstract texture and swirling, hallucinatory forms, a central figure looms large, clad in a crisp black suit. A pyrotechnic expanse of colour and movement, Carnival and Lent (2006-2008, estimate: £4,000,000-6,000,000) exemplifies Cecily Brown’s command of oil paint. Inspired by Pieter Brueghel the Elder’s 1559 masterpiece The Fight Between Carnival and Lent, its 2.5-meter canvas creates an all-engulfing textural and chromatic world, with hints at figure and form caught in swirls, tangles and marbled blurs of pigment.André Zlattinger, Deputy Chairman, Post-War and Contemporary Art Europe: “Christie’s is thrilled to offer these exceptional paintings by two artists who represent the gamut of painting in the 21st century. Cecily Brown was recently included in the Whitechapel Gallery’s group exhibition ‘Radical Figures’ which focused on those pushing the boundaries of representation. Her sources are hugely varied and Carnival and Lent places her work in dialogue with Old Masters. Adrian Ghenie’s paintings explore moments of significant change in history using figures the viewer may not want to confront but is suddenly compelled to do so. Presenting these two innovative painters in our new relay-format auction, provides a global context within which their work can be viewed.”
