On occasion, Christie's has a direct financial interest in the outcome of the sale of certain lots consigned for sale. This will usually be where it has guaranteed to the Seller that whatever the outcome of the auction, the Seller will receive a minimum sale price for the work. This is known as a minimum price guarantee. This is such a lot.

Lot Essay

"The way I think is in ideograms. I believe the language of images is logical, rational, correct way of thinking. I know I can think that way. So the paintings relate to the language of the body, of verbal language." (F. Clemente, quoted by Henry Geldzahler in “Approaching Clemente,” Francesco Clemente Affreschi, Pinturas al fresco, exh. cat., Fundacion Caja de Pensiones, Madrid, 1987, p. 20)
