Christie’s: Thinking Italian

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 settembre 2019

London Christie’s Thinking Italian Evening Auction will take place during Frieze Week on 4 October 2019 and directly follows the Post-War and Contemporary Art Evening Auction. The auction will be led by Alberto Burri’s Sacco (1953, estimate: £3,000,000-5,000,000), a rare, early example of the artist’s famed Sacchi, the iconic series that he began in 1950 and by an early steel work by Lucio Fontana that encapsulates the artist’s exploration of space, Concetto spaziale (1954, Estimate on Request). ‘Art for Future, Selected Works from the UniCredit Group’ will be presented across both evening auctions with Enrico Castellani and Giuseppe Gallo starring in Thinking Italian. Mario Schifano’s oeuvre during the 1960s was defined by the artist’s experimentation as he sought to carve out his indefatigable style. This decade of his career is represented by Non misterioso (‘Not mysterious’) (1961, estimate: £300,000-500,000) and Paesaggio anemico III (1965, estimate: £350,000-500,000). There will be 33 works included in Thinking Italian, which will all be on view in London from 27 September to 4 October 2019.Mariolina Bassetti, Chairman, Post-War and Contemporary Art, Continental Europe stated: “We are thrilled to present the third edition of Thinking Italian, after 12 years of The Italian Sale, our international series of sales that focus on Italian Masterpieces throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Artists in Italy pushed the boundaries of representation and continued to pioneer new techniques and styles, something that had far reaching impact throughout the international art scene. Showcasing these works during London’s Frieze Week provides a truly global platform, and we are honoured to be the only auction house with a sale dedicated to Italian art that provides this focus.”
