LONDON – Christie’s Modern British & Irish Art Evening Sale, taking place on 20 October 2021, is a key auction in the 20th / 21st Century October season, which encompasses sales in both London and Paris. The auction will be led by Sir Winston Churchill’s The Bridge at Aix-en-Provence, which was gifted to the Swiss paint manufacturer, Willy Sax, who supplied Churchill with his artistic materials. Two sculptures by Elisabeth Frink; Lying Down Horse II (1985, £300,000-500,000) and Barking Dog (1981, estimate: £100,000-150,000), commissioned by Kirk and Anne Douglas, will highlight the Evening and Day Sales respectively. A group of three paintings by Samuel John Peploe, including Flowers and Fruits (circa 1920, estimate: £500,000-700,000), are being offered in the year that marks the 150th anniversary of the artist’s birth in Edinburgh. L.S. Lowry’s The Mill, Early Morning (1961, estimate: £500,000-800,000) has not been seen on the market for 50 years and is presented alongside Rising Street (circa 1940, estimate: £500,000-800,000) and Viaduct Works, Manchester (1959, estimate: £400,000-600,0000). Gerald Laing’s Lotus in the Sunset, thought to have been lost, is offered at auction for the first time, highlighting a section dedicated to British Pop Art that also includes works by Patrick Caulfield, Antony Donaldson and Eduardo Paolozzi. Further highlights include a rediscovered Marlow Moss, Spheres and Curved Line (1945, estimate: £40,000-60,000), Barbara Hepworth’s Curved Form with Inner Form (Anima) (1959, estimate: £300,000-500,000), from the Everson Museum of Art, and Jack Butler Yeats’ A Sea Town (1931, estimate: £200,000-300,000), formerly in the collection of B.J. Eastwood.
