T his December, Sotheby's is delighted to present Contemporary Art, which brings together an eclectic selection of works by established masters alongside emerging artists, opening up a dialogue between different generations.

Works by international icons such as Andy Warhol, Carlos Cruz-Diez and Damien Hirst will be offered alongside renowned Italian artists like Alighiero Boetti, Mario Schifano and Claudio Parmiggiani.

The star lots of the sale range from Nola, one of Banksy's most famous series and now considered as New Orleans landmark, to a quintessential canvas by Hans Hartung from the Sixties with its sweeping hues of blues and grattage that is so distinctive of that period.

The sale also features a carefully curated group of emerging Italian contemporary artists. Cutting-edge works by Luca Pozzi, Giorgia Severi and Nicola Caredda will be presented along with an exciting nucleus of ceramic works by Bertozzi & Casoni, Alessandro Roma and Sissi.

Further highlights include a moto-silhouette by Ugo Nespolo, currently exhibited in Piazza Duomo in Milan, which will be offered to support Motomorphosis' international civic and road education projects in schools and universities.
