A survey of the works offered in the Impressionist & Modern and Contemporary Art sales this summer reveals the breadth of invention among artists working with abstraction. From the bold colour fields of Yves Klein and Lucio Fontana; the complex figures of Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso; the geometric power of Kazimir Malevich and Fernand Léger; and the textured colour of Gerhard Richter, abstract imagery retains an extraordinary visual power. Even in the patterns of a pietre dure tabletop from Renaissance Italy – a highlight of our Treasures sale – underlines the enduring strength of Abstraction.
