Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 8 ottobre 2022

London. Christie’s Modern British & Irish Art Evening Sale, on 19 October 2022, will be led by L.S. Lowry’s Going to the Match, which is being offered by The Players Foundation. Estimated at £5,000,000-8,000,000, the painting is poised to set a new world auction record for the artist. Two further paintings by Lowry will also be presented: On the Sands (1946, estimate: £600,000-800,000) and a rare full-length portrait titled Unemployed (1937, estimate: £1,000,000-1,500,000). Further highlights include Abstract (1940, estimate: £70,000-100,000), one of only five abstract paintings created by Barbara Hepworth at that time and Marlow Moss’ White and Black (1948, estimate: £100,000-150,000), which the artist gifted to her long-term partner, the writer Netty Nijhoff. A group of four sculptures by Henry Moore include two works from the collection of the artist’s great friends David and Laura Finn. Three works gifted directly by the artists to the late Robert and Shirley Robins feature a painting by Patrick Heron and two sculptures by Barbara Hepworth that have never been seen publicly before. In addition, William Nicholson’s The Marquess of Wellington Jug (1920, estimate: £120,000-180,000) was formerly in the collection of critically acclaimed British actress, Dame Vivien Leigh while Graham Sutherland’s The Bow (1962, estimate: £80,000-120,000) previously belonged to Sir Elton John.
