On 7 May, Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art Evening sale will offer Picasso’s dramatic Le Sauvetage, the most accomplished and colourful among a series of well-known canvases from 1932. Vibrant colour dominates the offerings with two important works by Matisse, La Seance du matin and La femme en jaune, both from the artist’s resplendent Nice period in the 1920s. The sale also includes pivotal works of Modern sculpture including one of the most successful examples from Giacometti's Femmes de Venise series, coming to us from the Estate of Jan Krugier. Additional works from the Krugier Estate include canvases by Picasso, Braque, Monet and Léger. A hitherto-unknown 1946 canvas from Miró, a major oil from the 1880s by Renoir, an early oil painting by Feininger and a spectacular coastal landscape by Monet will also be included in the sale.
