Following a stand-out season of sales in 2018, and terrific prices achieved in our June Evening and Day auctions, Sotheby’s London is delighted to present another exciting and varied collection of Modern & Post-War British Art on 19/20 November 2019.
Featuring paintings, drawings and sculptures by all of the key artists and makers of the 20th Century, November’s sale will showcase everything that is fresh, innovative and beautiful in British art, from the very beginnings of modernism at the turn of the century, through to mid-century masters, and onto the ‘Swinging Sixties’ and artists working today. With important works by Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, William Scott, Patrick Heron, Leon Kossoff, Peter Blake and Allen Jones the sales will chart the fascinating story of British art through this highly curated and textured selection, with price points to suit all.
