Contemporary Evening Auction 7 October 2022 • 8:45 PM HKT • Hong Kong

S otheby’s Hong Kong Autumn 2022 Contemporary Evening Auction presents a sophisticated and exciting selection of works by celebrated international names. The refined collection is led by Gerhard Richter’s Abstraktes Bild, a masterwork from 1990 belonging to the concise 725 series of just five works, two of which are currently housed in prominent institutions in Australia and Germany. Joining Richter’s monumental example of the artist’s unique mode of painterly abstraction is renowned figurative painter Peter Doig’s iconic Country-rock (wing-mirror) from 1999, one of the artist’s most recognisable and important masterworks. Featuring the rainbow tunnel off the Don Valley Parkway and the unique inclusion of a car’s wing-mirror, the painting is definitive of the artist’s cinematic visual code. 

Pioneering Western artworks by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Grotjahn, Christopher Wool, Mark Bradford and Lynne Drexler are accompanied by a distinguished selection by important Asian artists, including archetypal works by Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami and Kazuo Shiraga. Furthermore, this autumn, Sotheby’s Hong Kong is thrilled to present works by some of the most exciting and thought-provoking female artists of our generation, including Bridget Riley, Shara Hughes, Louise Bonnet, María Berrío, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Emily Mae Smith, Lucy Bull, Lauren Quin, Loie Hollowell and Dana Schutz. 

Completing the outstanding line up are works by in-demand names, including Matthew Wong, Salman Toor, Trey Abdella, Hernan Bas, Tomokazu Matsuyama and KAWS, to name just a few.

Gerhard Richter 格哈德・里希特
Abstraktes Bild 《抽象畫》

Estimate: 175,000,000 - 235,000,000 HKD

Executed in 1990, Abstraktes Bild is a breathtaking masterwork of Gerhard Richter’s epic cycle of Abstraktes Bild paintings that the artist has produced since the 1980s. 

Belonging to the concise 725 series of just five works, which includes examples currently housed in the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (725-3) and on loan at the Kunstmuseum Bonn (725-5), this museum-quality work is a paragon of the artist’s most arresting and seductive language of abstraction. 

INSTALLATION VIEW OF GERHARD RICHTER IN DALLAS COLLECTIONS, DALLAS MUSEUM OF ART, DALLAS, USA, 12 FEBRUARY – 16 APRIL 2000 © 2022 GERHARD RICHTER

One of Richter’s most stylistically stunning works, it measures in excess of two by two metres, thereby functioning on a monumental scale and enveloping the viewer entirely and irresistibly into its chromatic expanse. 

Testament to the visual power and significance of the work, Abstraktes Bild has been exhibited internationally in notable exhibitions, including Gerhard Richter: Mirrors at Anthony d'Offay Gallery, London (1991); Gerhard Richter in Dallas Collections at Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas (2000); Guess What? Hardcore Contemporary Art's Truly a World Treasure. Selected Works from the Yageo Foundation Collection which travelled to prominent institutions around Japan including The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (2014-2015); and Gerhard Richter: The Life of Images at Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane (2017-2018).

《抽象畫》作於1990年,是格哈德・里希特一幅令人嘆爲觀止的頂級鉅作,來自他最著名、始於1980年代的《抽象畫》系列。

本作屬《725》系列之一,該系列僅有五幅作品,包括現藏於墨爾本維多利亞國立美術館的《725-3》及德國波恩藝術博物館收藏的《725-5》,由此可見本作是博物館典藏級作品,也是格哈德・里希特的抽象語言中最攝人心魂的典範傑作。

《抽象畫》尺寸超過兩米乘兩米,巨幅畫面氣勢恢弘,廣闊無垠的斑斕色彩將人重重包圍,淋漓盡致地展現里希特的藝術風範。

這幅震撼視覺的《抽象畫》曾於多個國際重要展覽展出,包括倫敦安東尼・多菲畫廊的「格哈德・里希特︰鏡子」(1991年)、達拉斯藝術博物館的「達拉斯典藏格哈德・里希特」(2000年)、在東京國立近代美術館等日本重要博物館巡迴展出的「Guess What? Hardcore Contemporary Art’s Truly a World Treasure. Selected Works from the Yageo Foundation Collection」(2014-2015年),以及布里斯本昆士蘭現代美術館的「格哈德・里希特︰生命的影像」(2017-2018年)。

Peter Doig 彼得・多伊格
Country-rock (wing-mirror) 《鄉村搖滾(後視鏡)》
Estimate: 75,000,000 - 98,000,000 HKD

view lot

Painted in 1999, Country-rock (wing-mirror) is an iconic masterpiece by Peter Doig. Replete with mystery and intrigue, this painting is definitive of the artist’s cinematic visual code; a melding of memory with imagination, landscape with dreamscape, timelessness with the inescapably present.

Between 1998 and 2000 Doig painted three monumental works centered on a vista of the Don Valley rainbow from the highway: one of these is presently in the collection of the PinchukArtCentre in Kiev while the other was chosen as the catalogue cover illustration for the artist’s seminal retrospective at Tate Britain in 2008 and remains in a European private collection.

The present work is distinguished from the other two, however, as the only version to feature a glimpse of the car – via the intrusion of a wing-mirror in the lower left quadrant – from which our viewpoint originates.

繪於1999的《鄉村搖滾(後視鏡)》是彼得・多伊格最為人熟悉的作品之一。本作富含藝術家最經典的電影美學視覺符號,融匯記憶與想像、實境與夢境,以及永恆與當下,畫面瀰漫著無法言喻的神祕感。

1998至2000年間,多伊格以當河谷園林公路旁地下隧道上的彩虹為題,創作了三幅巨畫,其中一幅現展於烏克蘭基輔的平丘克藝術中心,另外一幅屬歐洲私人收藏並曾獲選為2008年泰特英國藝術館舉辦的多伊格回顧展展覽圖錄封面。

與另外兩幅近作相比,本作獨特之處是畫面左下角露出車輛的一角,這角落裡的後視鏡令觀者將自己的視線代入作品裡。

Important Japanese Artists重要日本藝術家

The sale presents an impressive line up of works by important Japanese artists, including signature examples by Yayoi Kusama, Takashi Murakami and Kazuo Shiraga. These comprise of an archetypal example of Yayoi Kusama’s white Infinity-Nets from 2006; a voluptuous Pumpkin sculpture by Kusama from 2007 measuring one metre tall and wide; a 727 painting by Takashi Murakami of which an early example from 1996 can be found at the Museum of Modern Art, New York; and two magnificent examples of Kazuo Shiraga’s performative abstractions from his most distinguished periods.

今季一如以往呈獻多位重要日本藝術家的精彩作品,包括草間彌生一幅創作於2006年的白色《無限網》和2007年的南瓜雕塑,南瓜高闊皆一米,瓜體飽滿;村上隆的《727》則有一幅1996年的同標題近例,現為紐約現代藝術博物館收藏;兩幅白髮一雄以抽象藝術表演完成的壯麗傑作,兩幅作品均出自其藝術生涯中最具創意爆發力的時期。
