Sotheby’s is honored to present the following sequence of Property from an Important Private Collection in our upcoming Impressionist and Modern Art Evening & Day sales. The collection comprises an extraordinary survey of works by the finest artists of the early modern movement. Indeed, these avant-garde artists challenged the naturalist traditions of their predecessors, transforming the trajectory of modern art history whilst pushing figural depiction to the edge of abstraction.
