The upcoming Parisian Contemporary Art Evening Sale will be led by a museum-quality masterwork by Kazuo Shiraga as well as by a key work from Nicolas de Staël’s most sought-after series Agrigente. The sale will also feature three iconic paintings from three key periods in Pierre Soulages’ career. The French master of abstraction will most notably be the subject of the first ever retrospective dedicated to a living artist at the Louvre museum. Seminal works by Jean Dubuffet will follow, giving the viewer a unique glimpse into the artist’s magical world. Finally, the closing event of the year will also honor the influence and vision of Zao Wou-Ki, Jean-Paul Riopelle and Francis Bacon.
