Post-War & Contemporary Art

English | 繁體中文 | 简体中文

The end of the Second World War marked the beginning of one of the most creative periods in the history of art, from the birth of Abstract Expressionism in the United States to the advent of Pop Art in Britain. Our biannual sales in London, New York and Paris celebrate some of the leading masters active from 1945 to 1970, including Mark Rothko, Andy Warhol, Francis Bacon and Louise Bourgeois, as well as contemporary luminaries such as Peter Doig, Jeff Koons and Gerhard Richter.

Christie’s is also dedicated to showcasing works by emerging artists in our First Open sales, which attract new and seasoned collectors alike. Our global team of specialists is always available for free and confidential valuations of individual works or collections; please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss buying or selling at auction or through Private Sales.
