From a 1st-century AD statue of the goddess Aphrodite to works by Claude Monet, Piet Mondrian, Andy Warhol and Francis Bacon, Sotheby’s galleries in London will play host to an array of masterpieces this summer.
Over four days, works from our June and July auctions of Impressionist, Modern and Contemporary Art, Old Master & British Paintings and Drawings, and Decorative Arts will be drawn together into a specially curated exhibition.
Presenting the history of art in more than 60 objects, the works featured include Mondrian’s Composition with Red, Blue and Grey from 1927; Monet’s 1906 Nymphéas; Bacon’s triptych of his lover George Dyer; George Stubbs’ 18th-century study Tygers at Play; Andy Warhol’s Dollar Sign and Nine Multicoloured Marilyns; and Calvary by Pieter Brueghel The Younger. In addition there is a selection of works from the collections of the Dukes of Northumberland, which, together with the Aphrodite already mentioned, features a commode from the celebrated English maker William Kent.
We look forward to welcoming you to our galleries in New Bond Street to immerse yourselves in the museum-quality works that will be offered for auction this summer at Sotheby’s.
