For the Love of the Game: Sports in Modern and Contemporary Art

Sale Overview

Christie’s is pleased to present For the Love of the Game: Sports in Modern and Contemporary Art, an online private selling exhibition exploring the theme of sports in 20th century and contemporary art. Artists have drawn inspiration from athletes and physical competition since antiquity, and 20th-century artists have contributed an important critical viewpoint to this artistic dialogue. The old motifs of physical prowess and beauty have been superseded by unique and contemporary themes: the artist as celebrity, commodity, hero and myth.
