Christie’s: Classic Week Overview

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 dicembre 2021

London – Classic Week at Christie’s London presents art from antiquity to the 21st century, spanning five live auctions and four online-only sales from 17 November to 16 December. The broad array of highlights range from Constable’s majestic Salisbury Cathedral from the Bishop’s Grounds, an attic red-figured Nolan amphora attributed to Hermonax, an early El Greco masterpiece and the Darwin Family Microscope, to striking art and objects from the collection of Victoria, Lady de Rothschild pairing Johnny Swing’s ‘Half-Dollar Chair’ with works by Dora Maar, Henry Moore and Irving Penn. Rembrandt’s illustrious career can be traced through prints including a portrait of him with his wife Saskia alongside his most celebrated landscape The Three Trees, with further highlights including an opportunity to explore the academically important collection of European ceramics, silver and gold boxes assembled by Robert G. and Ilse Vater. Past narratives find through-lines to the present in the Sergio Roger x Christie’s collaboration – the first London exhibition for the Barcelona-based textile artist, open from 3 to 7 December when selected works from our Antiquities auction enter into dialogue with Roger’s installations, which reinterpret elements of ancient sculpture by replacing stone and marble with delicate pieces of antique linen, in an exploration of the passage of time and the timelessness of these artistic representations of beauty.
