Special notice

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

"...there's an architecture about our bodies, there's an architecture about the place we're in, there's an architecture about the things we build (it doesn't have to be a house). If you think in terms of that principle and if those principles of that architecture flow together—that's beauty."
—Louise Nevelson
