Contemporary Art

  • Event date 28 November - 8 December
  • Event location Paris
This winter, Christie’s Paris is honored to present two Contemporary Art auctions featuring a vast selection of works by major figures on the French and international art scene, from the post-war period to the present day.
The 6 December sale will feature major French and European figures such as Pierre Soulages, Jean Dubuffet, Georges Mathieu, Christo, Serge Poliakoff, Bernard Frize and César. They will stand alongside works by major international figures in abstraction, minimalism and photorealism, such as Fred Sandback, Alexander Calder, Peter Halley and Richard Estes. The selection also pays tribute to the modern and contemporary work of women artists, represented by Germaine Richier, Etel Adnan, Maria Helena Vieira da Silva and Anna Eva Bergman.

From 28 November to 8 December, the online sale will highlight this dynamic mix of French and international artists, with works by Martial Raysse, Qiu Shihua, Marlene Dumas, David Hockney and Sol Lewitt. The exhibition will showcase the prestigious collection of a leading Parisian art lover, spanning almost eighty years of creative activity at the cutting edge of neo-impressionist, modern and contemporary art. Varying techniques and mediums, figuration and abstraction; combining painting, works on paper and sculpture, this sale offers a broad panorama of works from the 1920s to the present day.

An unmissable event for collectors as well as art lovers, during the exhibition on Avenue Matignon from 1–7 December.


Christie’s brings together the biannual Design auctions in Paris and New York, a masterly collection of Ettore Sottsass sculptures and a sale dedicated to the enduring creations of Tiffany Studios.
