Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 14 marzo 2021

London – The 20th Century Art Evening Sale will take place on 23 March 2021, a key auction within Christie’s series of livestream sales that will see collectors convene in London via our livestreamed salerooms in Hong Kong and New York. Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Warrior (1982, estimate: HK$240,000-320,000) will launch the evening and is poised to become the most expensive Western artwork ever offered in Asia. Directly following this, the 20th Century Art Evening Sale will be highlighted by two portraits by Pablo Picasso that represent two very distinct periods of Picasso’s oeuvre: Femme nue couchée au collier (Marie-Thérèse) (1932, estimate: £9,000,000-15,000,000) and Femme assise dans un fauteuil noir (Jacqueline) (1962, estimate: £6,000,000-9,000,000). 20th Century Modern Masters from a Private French Collection includes works by Alexander Calder, Jean Dubuffet, Jean Fautrier and Fernand Léger. This exceptional group offers a view into the crucial dialogues that connected avant-garde artists working in Europe and America throughout the 20th Century. Three further works from the Deutsche Bank Collections will also be presented, by Ernst Barlach, Lyonel Feininger, and Oskar Kokoshka.The 20th Century Art Evening Sale situates contemporary artists alongside those that shaped the trajectory of art in the 20th century. German art is a particular focus, with artists ranging from Ernst Ludwig Kirchner to Gerhard Richter and from Albert Oehlen to Daniel Richter.Lynette Yiadom-Boakye’s portrait The Like Above All Lovers (2013, estimate: £400,000-600,000) depicts an imagined scene, standing in contrast to Amoako Boafo’s bold Self-Portrait (2016, estimate: £60,000-80,000). Seen alongside paintings by Joy Labinjo and Claire Tabouret, these works provide insight into contemporary figurative painting.
