Event date 23 September - 7 October
Event location New York
Explore Classic Week at Christie’s New York in three sequential auctions, first open for bidding on 23 September. Begin with artistic triumphs spanning five centuries at Old Master Paintings and Sculpture Online, featuring Luca Giordano, Hendrick Jacobsz Dubbles, and more leading luminaries. Become enchanted by important modern illuminated manuscripts and jeweled bindings in Valuable and Important Books and Manuscripts from the Library of Edward R. Leahy, alongside first editions and special copies of great works of English literature, from Shakespeare and Samuel Johnson to Mary Shelley and JRR Tolkien—to name only a few. Engage with how mosaics, marbles and classical motifs transcend time in The Devoted Classicist: The Private Collection of a New York Antiquarian to close the series.
