Yet More Modern Art

February 19, 2019

In my survey of this month’s modern art auctions, I omitted what will probably be the richest of these. On the 27th, Christies in London will host Hidden Treasures: Impressionist & Modern Masterpieces From An Important Collection.

This is a major show, indeed, and the lots include a Cezanne and a Monet (“estimate on request”), a Van Gogh portrait estimated at US$15 million, a Renoir at US$13 million, and a Matisse at US$9 million.  There are plenty more, too.

Cezanne, Nature mort de peches et poire; Monet, Saule pleureur et bassin…

They say the works have “remained unseen in public for many decades,” so it will be interesting to see how the market views them today.
