Christie’s is honored to present The Collection of Anne H. Bass, to be offered during our 20th/21st Century Art sales series at Rockefeller Center in New York on 12 May. Mrs. Bass was a leading philanthropist and a generous patron of the arts, known for her expert eye and unparalleled connoisseurship. Composed of 12 magnificent artworks, this collection comes directly from the interior of Mrs. Bass’s impeccably designed New York City home.  

Headlining this sale are landmark works by leading 19th and 20th century artists, including Mark Rothko’s Untitled (Shades of Red), Monet’s Le Parlement, soleil couchant, and Edgar Degas’ bronze sculpture Petite danseuse de quatorze ans, among others. These works form a singularly compelling narrative that speak to both the power of connoisseurship and the enduring relevance that characterizes these great works of art.
