Christie’s auctions of 20th and 21st Century Art spotlight the stylistic connections and continued dialogues between modern masters and contemporary icons. From era-defining examples from the 20th century to cutting-edge works of the present day, the sale format draws on the individual identities of each period, presenting exciting auctions across our major sale sites.

This October, Christie’s brings over 10 live and online auctions to our salerooms in London and Paris. This season is complemented by an additional focus on the art and legacy of collecting, with standalone auctions showcasing the exceptional private collections of entrepreneur and polymath Sam Josefowitz and Austrian collecting duo Anne and Wolfgang Titze. Explore all this and more at our pre-sale exhibitions, open to all with free entry in London on 6 October and in Paris on 12 October.
