A Preview of Highlights from

An exceptional collection which explores key works of Arte Povera, its roots and its influence on art today

Assembled over 25 years, Eyes Wide Open explores Post-War Italian art up to the contemporary era, encompassing powerful works by celebrated post-war artists and the largest and most important private collection of Arte Povera ever shown in the UK. From works by Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri, Piero Manzoni and Michelangelo Pistoletto to a rare series by Alighiero Boetti and the enigmatic photographs of Emilio Prini, the collection will be offered during Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Art season in London in February. All 109 works will be on view at Christie’s Mayfair (5-14 February 2014), an exhibition reflecting both the collectors’ uncompromising eye and the remarkable artists who enhanced the post-war period and made an enormous impact on succeeding generations of artists. The stand-alone Evening Auction will take place on 11 February 2014.
