This May in Paris, Christie’s presents Old Masters to Modern Icons, a series of four auctions offering art from the Renaissance to the 20th century. Led by extraordinary examples from the Tiepolo family, a collection of important works by Jean Arp and a Pointillist masterpiece, explore the evolution of artistic expression through the centuries at our Avenue Matignon galleries.
Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo’s Punchinello avec enfants et cheval stars alongside his father Giovanni Battista’s depiction of the Holy Family in our Dessins anciens et du XIXe siècle sale. Other key names featured include Jean-Baptiste Greuze, Claude Gillot, Abraham Bloemaert, Quellinus and Hans Rottenhammer. Greta Stroeh’s collection of Jean Arp sculptures, works on paper, lithographs and etchings comes to auction, offering an extensive survey of more than 30 years of Arp’s oeuvre.
Coinciding with the Salon du Dessin art fair, our Œuvres modernes sur papier auction exceptional works on paper by the greats: from Giacometti, Chagall and Signac to Bonnard, Picasso and Miró. The bustling streets of the French capital are mirrored in Louis Anquetin’s large-scale pastel Avenue de Clichy, which headlines this sale. The final auction of the sale week, Art Impressionniste et Moderne, brings together works by artistic icons of the 20th century, including a vibrant painting by Odilon Redon, a museum-quality Pointillist masterpiece by Théo van Rysselberghe, an impressive panoramic view of the Tuileries garden by Camille Pissarro and an elegant portrait by Berthe Morisot.
