Oeuvres modernes sur papier / Art Impressionniste et Moderne

Oeuvres modernes sur papier / Art Impressionniste et Moderne

Sale Overview

This April, Christie’s Paris presents an exciting two-part auction, with sections on modern works on paper and Impressionist and modern paintins and sculptures. Headlining the first section is a seminal watercolour by Robert Delaunay, Le Manège des Cochons, executed between 1905 and 1922, the selection also includes a diverse range of works on paper by the likes of Boudin, Picasso and more. The second of the sale is led by a bright and decorative painting by Henri Martin of the grape harvest, a monumental 1905 landscape by Gino Severini — painted at the height of his Divisionist period, and a stunning view of Murano, Venice, by Belgian Impressionist artist Emile Claus. The majority of works in this auction come from three distinguished private collections, each showcasing a different collecting perspective, but at the same time, an equally refined taste for Impressionist and modern art. 

En avril prochain, Christie’s Paris présentera une vente en deux parties, la première étant dédiée aux œuvres modernes sur papier et la seconde aux tableaux et sculptures Impressionnistes et modernes. Une aquarelle emblématique de Robert Delaunay, Le Manège des Cochons, réalisée entre 1905 et 1922 et un riche panorama d’œuvres sur papier de Boudin à Picasso ouvrent la première section de la vente. Parmi les œuvres phares de la seconde section, figurent un lumineux et décoratif tableau d’Henri Martin représentant les vendanges, un paysage monumental divisioniste de 1905 peint par Gino Severini et une magnifique vue de Murano, Venise, peinte par l’artiste impressionniste belge Emile Claus. Trois collections particulières prestigieuses sont au cœur des deux sections de cette vente, chacune mettant en avant un goût raffiné et singulier pour l’art Impressionniste et moderne.

Valérie Didier is a Specialist and Head of Sale at the Impressionist and Modern Art department, based in Paris. She began her career at Christie's in 2005. Prior to her current position, Valérie has worked in London in the Collections department and Impressionist and Modern Art department, as well as the Russian Art department in Paris, before becoming the Business Director at the Christie's Dubai office. She oversaw the bi-annual sales of Middle Eastern Modern and Contemporary Art and Important Watches for over eight years.

Under Valérie’s leadership, the two Parisian spotlight sales Art Moderne and Art Impressionniste et Moderne have consistently achieved strong sell-through rates of over 80% by lot and by value. One of her most remarkable successes included the white-glove sale of the Hessel collection of Bonnard and Vuillard paintings in 2018, selling 100% by lot and exceeding its pre-sale high estimate to make a total of over €5.3 million. Valérie was also responsible for the record price for a work by Jeanne Hébuterne (€478,000 sold in March 2019, nearly eight times its pre-sale low estimate) and the 1889 self-portrait by Emile Bernard, acquired by the Musée d’Orsay in October 2019 (sold for €778,000, almost double its pre-sale low estimate).

In December 2016, Valérie co-authored with Alexandrian collector Dr. Hussam Rashwan the first catalogue raisonné on any artist from the Middle East, the founder of Modern Egyptian Art, Mahmoud Saïd (1897–¬1964), published by SKIRA.
