Sale L21004


Sotheby’s is delighted to present its Day Sale of Impressionist and Modern Art. The sale is led by Max Pechstein’s magnificent painting, Der Mühlengraben (The Mill Stream), created in 1921 at the peak of the artist’s expressionist powers. Inspired by the verdant beauty of Leba, a village along the Baltic coast in what is now Poland, this bold display of colour showcases the artist’s singular vision of the bucolic idyll.

 

The Expressionist exploration of the pastoral is further exhibited in Alexej von Jawlensky’s 1904 Abend in Reichertshausen (Evening in Reichertshausen), coming from the renowned collection of Sir Michael Smurfit. Further highlights include a fantastic selection of works from artists at the forefront of the European Avant-Garde, such as Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, August Macke and Emil Nolde.

 

The sale additionally features superb examples of Modern works, including Marc Chagall’s Paysage violet, a vivid example of the artist’s distinctive visual language, as well as a wonderful selection of paintings by the masters of Impressionism and post-Impressionism such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Camille Pissarro and Henri Lebasque.
