New York | November 2021
The past months have had a lasting impact on the way we experience the world. In these times of change, Christie’s unveiled an innovative approach to presenting art of the 20th and 21st centuries in May. Our global 20th/21st Century Art auction series reflects evolving market demands and collecting habits, breaking through traditional sale categories to make new stylistic connections, elevate masterpieces and discover extraordinary emerging works — both physical and digital.
This November our new-look 20/21 sales return to New York featuring The Cox Collection | The Story of Impressionism, one of the greatest American collections to ever appear on the market. Masterpieces by Caillebotte, Cézanne and Van Gogh will headline the sales, with a portion of the sale proceeds to benefit educational purposes. Another notable collection of the season includes IMAGE WORLD: Property from a Private American Collection, which celebrates pioneering artists of the Pictures Generation, such as Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger and Richard Prince.
The sale series comprises the 20/21 Evening Sales, the Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Sales, the Impressionist and Modern Art Day Sale and the Impressionist and Modern Art Works on Paper Sale. A global tour of highlights from the sales will include stops in Taipei, Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, San Francisco and Los Angeles before the auction preview at Christie’s Rockefeller Center galleries in New York
