Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 6 settembre 2021

LONDON. Christie’s 20th / 21st Century: Evening Sale Including Thinking Italian, London will be highlighted by Peter Doig’s Hill Houses (Green Version) (1991, estimate: £3,500,000-4,500,000), being sold by the Estate of Donald R. Sobey, and Alighiero Boetti’s Mappa (1988-89, estimate: £1,200,000-1,800,000). Proceeds from Peter Doig’s Hill Houses (Green Version) will support the promotion and exhibition of contemporary indigenous art from Canada around the world. The 20th / 21st Century: Evening Sale Including Thinking Italian, London, coinciding with Frieze Week, will bring together iconic works by artists from the 20th century whose defining influence can be seen on the artists and artistic movements that subsequently followed in the 21st Century. Together, across the two centuries, these artists radicalised artistic practice, challenging what had come before to continually diversify the trajectory of art throughout the last 140 years. Hill Houses (Green Version) is a rare early work that stands among Peter Doig’s first explorations of his celebrated cabin motif and was acquired by Donald R. Sobey in 2003. The painting will be unveiled in New York on 7 September, remaining on view until 12 September, before being toured to Zurich from 18 to 19 September 2021. Held in the same collection since 1998, and on long term loan to MART in Rovereto for more than 20 years, Mappa is part of the celebrated series of Mappe which occupied Alighiero Boetti for over two decades of his career. Katharine Arnold, Co-Head of Post-War and Contemporary Art Europe and Mariolina Bassetti, Chairman, Post-War and Contemporary Art, Continental Europe and Chairman Christie’s Italy: “October’s Frieze Week in London is defined by the vibrant presentation of artists in dialogue with one another across continents and centuries. This is the ethos that has shaped Christie’s 20th / 21st Century: Evening Sale Including Thinking Italian, London and we are thrilled to offer two iconic works by Peter Doig and Alighiero Boetti as leading highlights. We look forward to welcoming clients to the galleries and the saleroom where we will be joined via livestream by our colleagues in Hong Kong and New York.”
