Paris Avant-Garde

Paris Avant-Garde

Sale Overview

Our Paris Avant-Garde sale spans the late 19th century to the present day, offering African works of art that helped shape the aesthetics of modern European art movements, alongside extraordinary examples by Picasso, Matisse, Zao Wou-Ki and Soulages. Headlining the auction is Nicolas de Staël’s monumental Parc des Princes (les grands footballeurs). An electrifying portrayal of a 1952 football match between France and Sweden in the Parisian stadium, this painting marks the zenith of De Staël’s ‘Football players’ series and artistic career.
