Explore Christie’s December Post-War and Contemporary Art online sales that highlight the most in-demand names in the post-war and contemporary art market. First Open | Post-War and Contemporary Art presents an exceptional selection of works by artists such as George Condo, Alexander Calder, Andy Warhol and Kenny Scharf. Collection highlights include a special section of Andy Warhol polaroid photographs; important drawings from the Estate of Ruth Stanton; colour field paintings from the Collection of Arthur K. Solomon; and property from the Saint Louis Art Museum. As a continuation of the IMAGE WORLD collection recently offered in the 21st Century Evening sale and the Post-War and Contemporary Art Day sale in New York, the IMAGE WORLD ONLINE: Property from a Private American Collection sale draws inspiration from Image World: Art and Media Culture — the 1989 Whitney Museum of American Art exhibition on the Picture Generation. Discover an array of works from artists such as Cindy Sherman, Richard Prince, Christopher Wool, Eddie Martinez, Roe Ethridge and more.
Browse the sales online or view the works in-person beginning 11 December at our Rockefeller Center galleries.
