A Century of Art: The Gerald Fineberg Collection

  • Event date May 2023
  • Event location New York

This May, Christie’s New York is honored to present A Century of Art: The Gerald Fineberg Collection: a rich and nuanced collection of modern, post-war and contemporary art that will be presented as a standalone two-part auction during the 20/21 Century sales season in New York. In Gerald Fineberg’s wide-ranging trove, modern masterworks by Man Ray and Picasso join the timeless figurative paintings of Alice Neel and Barkley Hendricks and the pioneering artworks of Ruth Asawa and Lee Krasner. This is a momentous collection, the likes of which have been rarely seen before, and one that is in step with today’s changing definition of the traditional 20th century artistic canon.
