Christie’s Presents Le Jeune, A Collecting Legacy

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 22 settembre 2022

LONDON – Christie’s will present works from a collection that has evolved across the decades of one family’s story and is among the most important of its kind in Benelux. Le Jeune, A Collecting Legacy will be offered across a series of 20th / 21st Century sales, beginning in London on 13 October 2022 as part of the 20th / 21st Century: London Evening Sale. Jacqueline Le Jeune and her husband Mark began buying art in the late 1960s. Jacqueline resolved to support practicing artists, and built what would become a major collection of both Belgian and international works. Jacqueline’s passion would also have a formative impact on her descendants. Their collection is similarly diverse, ranging from works by Banksy and Gilbert & George to Yoshitomo Nara, and a major pastel by Nicolas Party, as well as a large number of Belgian artists. Lucio Fontana and Günther Uecker represent pioneering European Modernism with examples from the early 1960s presented by both artists. Concetto spaziale, Attese (1961, estimate: £1,000,000-1,500,000) is a pure and elegant example of Fontana’s celebrated ‘tagli’ with four pristine strokes. Günther Uecker’s Organische Struktur (1962, estimate: £400,000-600,000, illustrated above, right) is from a series of 12 works that represent an important chapter in the evolution of Uecker’s early Nagelbilder (Nail Paintings).
