Mondrian, Van Gogh artworks go on show in London
Mondrian, and Vincent Van Gogh went on display at Christie’s in London on Thursday ahead of a May sale, with the auction house encouraging art fans to book viewings while museums remain closed in Britain.
“It’s an incredibly iconic image. It hasn’t been seen up at auction since 2013,” Keith Gill, head of the Impressionist and Modern Art department at Christie’s London, told Reuters.
The three oil paintings are the highlights of the upcoming ’20th Century Evening Sale’ on May 13 in New York. They were previously on show in Hong Kong.
The sale will be led by Picasso’s 1932 work Femme assise près d’une fenêtre (Marie-Thérèse), a portrait of the artist’s mistress, which is seen selling around $55 million.
