EVENT DATE: 7–11 JUNE 2013
AN EXHIBITION OF HIGHLIGHTS FROM FORTHCOMING AUCTIONS
Curated by Darren Leak and Henry Pettifer
For the fifth year, Christie’s will launch its summer season of auctions with Masterpieces – an innovatively curated public exhibition from 7 to 11 June 2013. Highlighting the enduring beauty of the very best pieces coming to auction across Christie’s leading categories, the exhibition will present over 70 works by many of the most celebrated artists in the last 500 years of art history, many of which have not been seen at auction or in public exhibitions for generations.
The exhibition includes works by Basquiat, Burne-Jones, Canaletto, Bob Dylan, Hepworth, Kandinsky, Lowry, Millais and Picasso, as well as exceptional European furniture, decorative arts and early books and manuscripts. The beauty, quality, provenance, rarity and condition of the works exhibited set the tone for the wealth of works to be offered at Christie’s during June and July when art collectors from all over the world congregate in London for the busy annual season of exhibitions and sales.
