Born Audrey James, she was a renowned beauty and prominent member of transatlantic society in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Romantically linked to the future Edward VIII and engaged to Lord Louis Mountbatten, she was married three times, firstly to Captain Muir Dudley Coats (d. 1927) between 1922-1927, then to Marshall Field III, the Chicago department store heir, from 1930-1934 and finally to the Hon. Peter Pleydell-Bouverie, from 1938-1946. The ‘Vogue Regency’ interiors that she created just before the Second World War with Stéphane Boudin of Maison Jansen at The Holme, Regent’s Park, in a delicate palette of white, cream, gold, grey and pink, were designed to harmonise with her Impressionist art collection. During The Second World War her collection was moved to Julians Park, where again she worked with Boudin to adapt the Georgian interiors to suit her paintings and furniture, to great effect. The interiors at both the Holme and Julians were published in Country Life, in 1939-40 and 1947, and these, along with the photograph albums and scrapbooks she created, tell the story of a life lived in the glittering artistic, aristocratic and royal circles of society in England, America and on the continent.

Sir Winston Churchill’s Only Wartime Painting to be Offered in the Modern British Art Evening Sale

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 2 febbraio 2021

London – Christie’s Modern British Art Evening Sale on 1 March 2021 will be led by Sir Winston Churchill’s Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque (1943, estimate: £1,500,000-2,500,000), which is being offered from The Jolie Family Collection. The painting is the only work that Churchill created during the Second World War, executing the painting in Marrakech following the Casablanca Conference in January 1943. Churchill invited Franklin D. Roosevelt to join him in Marrakech the day after the conference concluded, motivated by his desire to share the views of the city and the light at sunset, which he so revered, with Roosevelt. The view impressed Roosevelt so much that Churchill decided to capture the scene for him as a memento of their excursion. This act was seen not only as an indication of their friendship but of the special relationship between the UK and the USA.Nick Orchard, Head of Department, Modern British Art, Christie’s: “Christie’s is delighted to offer such a historically significant painting as the leading highlight of the Modern British Art Evening Sale. Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque was created following the Casablanca Conference where it was agreed by the Allied forces that only complete surrender by the Axis powers would be acceptable. It is the only work that Churchill painted during the war, perhaps encouraged by the recent progress made by the Allies in what he considered to be one of the most beautiful countries he had encountered. Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque is therefore arguably the best painting by Winston Churchill due to the significance of the subject matter to him, and the fact that it highlights the importance of the friendship between the two leaders. The gifting of the work to Roosevelt underlines the fact that Churchill held the American President in such high regard and points to their joint efforts in guiding the Allied powers to the outcome of the Second World War.”Sir Winston Churchill began painting scenes of Morocco after being encouraged to visit the country by his painting tutor, Sir John Lavery. Upon his first visit in 1935, he felt that the light and scenery were unrivalled, creating some 45 paintings of the country. Tower of the Koutoubia Mosque stands out as the only painting created between 1939 and 1945, and the work is expected to realise one of the top prices for Sir Winston Churchill’s paintings at auction.

Exceptional Works on Paper Collection to be Offered in Dedicated Sale, London and New York

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 23 gennaio 2021

London and New York – Christie’s will offer A Family Collection: Works on Paper, Van Gogh to Freud as a standalone sale dedicated to exceptional works on paper from a single collection, presented in New York preceding the Modern British Art Evening Sale in London on 1 March 2021. The group is highlighted by Vincent van Gogh’s La Mousmé (executed in Arles circa 31 July – 3 August 1888, estimate: $7,000,000-10,000,000), one of the finest works on paper of the artist’s career, René Magritte’s Journal intime (executed circa 1954, estimate: $2,500,000-3,500,000), a scene depicting two of Magritte’s iconic bowler-hatted men turned to stone, and a rare Self-portrait by Lucian Freud (executed in 1974, estimate: $1,800,000-2,500,000), which was recently included in the Royal Academy’s major exhibition Lucian Freud: Self Portraits (2019-20). A Family Collection: Works on Paper, Van Gogh to Freud also includes seminal pieces by Henry Moore, Georges Seurat, and Augustus John, all of which are testament to an unerring eye whose passion for exquisite works on paper resulted in the pursuit of the best pieces across categories. A key focus was exceptional condition, which together with the rarity of the artworks discovered, came to define the founding ethos of this private family collection.
Giovanna Bertazzoni, Vice Chairman, 20th – 21st Century, Christie’s: “Christie’s is thrilled to launch the 20th Century season of Spring sales in London and New York with a collection of exquisite works on paper put together by an exceptional eye. The works offered in the dedicated sale on 1 March 2021 range from the masterfully executed La Mousmé by Vincent van Gogh to the intimate Self-portrait by Lucian Freud. Henry Moore’s dramatically sculptural Two Sleepers in the Underground is presented alongside Seurat’s rare and atmospheric landscape, conjured magically on paper by the artist’s uniquely mastered Conté crayon. What unites all of these works on paper is the lifelong passion of this collector who strove to seek out these treasures – the intimate art form that represents the unfettered first idea of the genius. The rarity and condition of these works is incomparable and the auction will provide insight into the connoisseurship of this family collection. For decades, at Christie’s we have championed works on paper and dedicated specialised auctions to this vibrant and exciting segment of the market. It is with great pride that we offer A Family Collection: Works on Paper, Van Gogh to Freud as a key element of our 20th Century Spring season.”

Hersaint Collection of Ernst, Magritte and Miró to highlight The Art of the Surrea

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 10 dicembre 2020

London – Three works by Max Ernst, René Magritte and Joan Miró from the Collection of Claude Hersaint, one of the most important collectors of Surrealist art in the 20th century, will lead the annual The Art of the Surreal Evening Sale. The auction will take place on 9 March 2021 as part of 20th Century at Christie’s in March 2021. Exhibited extensively, the group is comprised of Magritte’s iconic Le mois des vendanges (1959, estimate: £10,000,000-15,000,000), Miró’s Peinture (1925, estimate: £9,000,000-14,000,000) and Ernst’s Cage, forêt et soleil noir (1927, estimate: £2,000,000-3,000,000).Claude Hersaint was born in São Paulo in 1904. He spent his early childhood in Manaus, before the family returned to Paris where he continued his education at the Lycée Janson de Sailly. In 1921, at the age of 17, he visited the first exhibition dedicated to Max Ernst at the Galerie au Sans-Pareil in Paris, and acquired his first painting. A lifelong passion for Surrealism was born and Hersaint would go on to befriend and support many artists during his lifetime, including Balthus, Victor Brauner, Salvador Dalí, Oscar Domínguez, Jean Dubuffet, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, Jean Fautrier, René Magritte, Joan Miró and Man Ray, as well as Surrealist patrons, poets, dealers and art historians such as Bill Copley, Paul Éluard, Jacques Maritain, Marie-Laure de Noailles, and Jean-Louis Prat amongst others.François Curiel, Chairman, Christie’s Europe: “It is an honour to represent the Hersaint family, for the first time at auction, in our world-renowned The Art of the Surreal Evening Sale this coming March.” Olivier Camu, Deputy Chairman, Impressionist & Modern Art, Christie’s: “It is thrilling enough to present at auction one masterpiece of Surrealist art, let alone three. Together, these paintings illustrate the rich diversity of ideas, styles, subject matter and techniques that inspired Surrealist artists throughout the 20th century. The Magritte, one of the four largest works by the artist still in private hands, is among the most significant paintings of his entire oeuvre and focuses on the unnerving presence of the eternally enigmatic character of the bowler hatted man. The Ernst explores the mysterious depths of a dark, imaginary forest, and is one of just five forest paintings the artist created on this huge scale in 1927, three of which are now in important museum collections around the world. The Miró, also painted on a dramatically large canvas, is one of the most beautiful of his radical dream series from the mid-1920s, inspired by the work of Alfred Jarry as well as the artist’s own hunger-induced hallucinations. This painting is on a par with any of the same series by Miró in museums around the world. Each of these works represents a major creative statement by their respective artists, as they boldly explored the central tenets and techniques of Surrealism. They are a testament to Claude Hersaint’s connoisseurship and unwavering passion for Surrealism.”

The Oliver Hoare Collection

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 settembre 2019

London – On October 25th, Christie’s will present the collection of the late Oliver Hoare (1945-2018). A highly influential and much loved art dealer who specialised in Islamic art, Oliver inaugurated Islamic sales at Christie’s in 1975 when working for the auction house. Known for celebrating the remarkable stories of objects from across countless countries and eras, and the joy and intrigue that they could bring, Oliver assembled a collection of works of art for his exhibitions under the banner ‘Every Object Tells a Story’ where a number of these pieces were shown. Comprising approximately 130 lots, the sale will include works of art from all over the globe, ancient and modern, with individual estimates from £300 to over £1.5 million. Led by works from the Islamic world, the top lot is an exceptional 15th century Timurid manuscript – known as the Jam-I Jam – by Mawlana Shir Ali, with four illustrations by the celebrated and extremely rare artist [Kemal al-Din] Bihzad which was once part of the Mughal Imperial Library; it is the earliest known work by the artist, produced with the calligrapher with whom he worked again on a manuscript now in the Bodleian Library, Oxford (estimate: £1-1.5 million). Equally characteristic of the collector’s eye is an arresting 17th century silver apple with bite marks; it opens to reveal a pomander in the shape of a skull, which is reputed to have been in the possession of King James II (estimate: £12,000-18,000, illustrated above). It was sold at Christie’s in 1855 as part of the Bernal Collection.William Robinson, Christie’s International Head of Group, World Art: “As head of the Islamic Department, I for many years enjoyed filling the position which was first created for Oliver. It therefore gives me huge pleasure that Christie’s have been asked to handle the Oliver Hoare sale, his family actively wanting to encourage new collectors, and with them, new stories to be told. Oliver was such an enthusiast for each individual work, the story it can tell, that it came alive when he discussed it. Our aim is to recreate the spirit of Oliver: both the relaxed gallery ambience, with an encouragement of dialogue, and by conveying the simple wonder of arcane, intriguing and simply beautiful works of art.” Oliver’s children, Tristan, Damian and Olivia: “Our father’s interest in Islamic art can be traced back to his childhood when he was gifted a large silver coin from Persia; from that moment, it became a place of mystery and fascination to which he longed to go. That opportunity would only come after he became a student in Paris, from where he set off overland by train and then bus, taking more than a week to reach Tehran. He had a total fascination with all objects; both the modest and the masterpiece, and from across cultures – he loved their stories, their beauty and the potential to learn from them. This last point was perhaps the most important for him and the reason he never considered himself the owner of any object, his intention always being to learn what he could and then pass it on. It is in this spirit that the family are happy to offer this collection in the hope that others will be able to enjoy, learn and delight in these objects, just as he did.”

Collection René Huyghe

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 18 maggio 2019

Paris. Le 5 juin prochain, la dispersion par la maison Tessier & Sarrou de la collection de l’Académicien René Huyghe sera l’occasion de redécouvrir le fabuleux destin de ce psychologue, historien et mécène.
Né en 1906 à Arras, René Huyghe (1906-1997) fait partie des personnalités dont la vie se confond avec l’Histoire. Décoré de la Légion d’honneur de l’ordre national du Mérite et de l’ordre de Léopold, ses écrits et sa pensée font de lui une figure importante de l’histoire de l’Art. Après des études de littérature et d’art à l’École du Louvre et à la Sorbonne et malgré son jeune âge de 27 ans, René Huyghe est nommé conservateur au musée du Louvre. Parallèlement, il dirige plusieurs revues artistiques telle que l’Amour de l’Art et réalise en 1936 l’un des premiers films sur l’art, Rubens, qui sera primé à la Biennale de Venise.
Pendant l’Occupation, René Huyghe s’engage dans la Résistance et investit toute son énergie dans la sauvegarde des collections nationales. Il fait transférer vers diverses propriétés de province plus de quatre mille tableaux du Louvre qui échapperont ainsi aux nazis. Un journal en partie écrit sous la dictée de René Huyghe et relatant le quotidien de certains de ces châteaux en ces périodes troublées fait d’ailleurs partie de la vacation (estimation : 6 000 – 8 000 €). La guerre finie, le Collège de France crée spécialement pour lui la chaire de Psychologie des Arts Plastiques. En 1960 René Huyghe est élu à l’Académie Française et les enchérisseurs pourront acquérir son habit d’académicien (estimation : 3 000 – 4 000 €) ainsi que son épée executée par Ossip ZADNINE (1888-1967) (estimation : 10 000 – 15 000 €) lors de la vente. Six ans plus tard, il recevra le célèbre prix Erasme, récompensant les personnes ayant participé à la diffusion de la culture européenne.
Vente aux enchères publique – Drouot – salle 4 Mercredi 5 juin – 14h exposition publique – Drouot – salle 4 Lundi 3 juin – 11h / 18h Mardi 4 juin – 11h / 18h Mercredi 5 juin – 11h / 12h contacts presse Mathilde FENNEBRESQUE
À propos de Drouot Drouot est la plus grande place de ventes aux enchères publiques au monde, implantée à Paris depuis 1852. Réunissant 63 maisons de ventes aux enchères, Drouot a accueilli en 2018 plus de 1 000 ventes qui totalisent 376M€. Chaque année, 500 000 visiteurs viennent parcourir les 17 salles de ventes réparties sur deux sites, qui exposent des objets d’art et de collection issues de 21 grandes spécialités, de l’Antiquité au Street art. Le groupe Drouot comprend plusieurs filiales, dont Auctionspress qui publie chaque semaine la Gazette Drouot ainsi que Drouot Digital, plateforme e-commerce ouverte à tous, qui réunit les activités Live (retransmission et participation aux enchères en direct) et Online (ventes dématérialisées). Interviews et images sur demande.
La collection aujourd’hui mise en vente à Drouot rend hommage à l’homme qu’était René Huyghe. Au-delà des œuvres qu’il sauvait ou qu’il analysait, il y avait les œuvres avec lesquelles il vivait. Cette vacation est donc plus qu’un musée personnel, c’est l’environnement de sa vie. Dans ce décor presque théâtral, se côtoient peintures, sculptures, manuscrits et mobilier. Cependant, malgré l’ampleur de cette collection, chaque objet y trouve sa place et raconte son histoire. On y croise une sculpture en marbre blanc, Tête d’enfant riant, provenant de l’entourage de Desiderio da SETTIGNANO (estimation : 8 000 – 10 000 €) ou encore un exceptionnel exemplaire d’une bible comprenant une peinture originale de Marc CHAGALL (1887-1985) et dédicacée à René Huyghe (estimation : 5 000 – 8 000€) attestant de sa reconnaissance par les artistes du milieu artistique.
Au-delà de sa collection, René Huyghe laisse aux générations futures près de 65 livres et de très nombreux écrits. Son autobiographie rédigée un an avant son décès résume dans son titre Une vie pour l’Art la vocation de cet érudit. (par: http://www.drouot.com)

The Collection of Drue Heinz

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 10 maggio 2019

London. A remarkable and rare opportunity for collectors and decorators alike; Christie’s London will present The Collection of Drue Heinz: Townhouses in London and New York with Interiors by John Fowler and Renzo Mongiardino, on 4 June in a dedicated collection sale. The collection of Drue Heinz reflects the innate eye and refined personal taste with which she assembled this incredible collection, which was largely amassed during her marriage to H.J. (Jack) Heinz II – CEO of the H. J. Heinz Company – from 1953 until his death in 1987. Mrs Heinz (1915-2018) was also a renowned philanthropist and throughout her life she enjoyed nothing more than taking on new endeavours, particularly those which helped to advance the work of a wide spectrum of emerging artists. Her spirit is very much reflected in her collection, and, as such, the proceeds from its sale will go to support her beloved Hawthornden Literary Retreat as well as various other charitable projects. From these and other benefactions one takes away the overall impression of a relentlessly energetic person who took a strong personal interest in projects that she felt were important and in particular ones which nourished the human spirit. Further highlights from the wider collection are being sold in Christie’s specialist sales throughout the year, including an important group of fine art to be offered in Christie’s Spring sales of Impressionist and Modern Art, Post-War and Contemporary and Latin American Art.

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 19 febbraio 2019

Ancienne Collection René Bertelé et Collection Bernard LoliéeParis. Vendredi 22 mars, la maison Binoche et Giquello présentera aux enchères un ensemble important d’œuvres sur papier et de livres d’Henri MICHAUX (1899-1984). L’ensemble provient de deux collections: celle de son éditeur d’abord, René Bertelé, qui a soutenu l’artiste tout au long de sa carrière avec passion et détermination, et celle de Bernard Loliée ensuite, collectionneur assidu.
Claude Oterelo, expert de la vente, précise «La vente d’origine [1997] fut une charge et un bonheur pour Geneviève, la sœur de Bertelé. Cependant, elle fut dans l’impossibilité affective de se séparer des œuvres magnifiques que l’on retrouve dans la vente d’aujourd’hui. Pour compléter l’hommage à cet humble et grand éditeur, Bernard Loliée nous confie son exceptionnelle collection d’ouvrages d’Henri Michaux qui n’attendait que l’alignement des astres de la collection René Bertelé ».Les œuvres d’Henri Michaux qui composent la vente incluent des dessins, frottages, aquarelles, gouaches et acryliques, estimés de 5 000 € à 50 000 €. La plupart des éditions originales des livres les plus importants de sa carrière sont enrichies de dessins, aquarelles, gouaches ou encore d’envois autographes à René Char, Paul Éluard, Georges Hugnet, Jules Supervielle et André Gide. Estimées de 1 000 à 40 000 €, ces éditions présentent de magnifiques reliures de Colette et Jean-Paul Miguet, Georges Leroux, Henri Mercher et de Marot-Rodde. La vente compte 80 lots, pour une estimation globale de 700 000 €.

Lucien Paris: collection de Roxane Debuisson

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 28 gennaio 2019

Pour la 8e édition de sa vente « Paris mon amour », les 18 et 19 mars, la maison Lucien Paris présentera la collection de Roxane Debuisson, amoureuse inconditionnelle de la ville lumière, de la France et de sa gastronomie. Profondément parisienne, Roxane Debuisson (1927-2018) déambule passionnément tout au long de sa vie dans les rues de la capitale dont elle ne supporte ni la destruction, ni la sur-densification. Érudite, fantasque, rebelle, dotée d’une gouaille très aristocratique, elle réunit dans son grand appartement du boulevard Henri IV une collection incroyable de vestiges de la ville.

Collection de Laurent HORNY

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 30 novembre 2018

Paris 9, rue Drouot Lundi 10 décembre, la maison Boisgirard-Antonini dispersera la collection de Laurent HORNY (1922-2000), médecin et linguiste, mais également passionné et esthète. Sa rigueur scientifique explique probablement son appétence pour la Haute Époque et le XVIIe siècle essentiellement flamand. Cependant, homme de goût ouvert au monde, il recherche le beau où il est, notamment dans l’art contemporain.
