(Women) Artists 20–27 May 2021 • 2:00 PM BST • London

(Women) Artists, our auction sale dedicated to female artists across the centuries, spans over 400 years. From Old Masters to the 21st century, the auction is led by Cecily Brown’s Twice Told Tales II and includes work by key artists from throughout history, many of whom have been categorised or marginalised over time. Encompassing works by the likes of Lavinia Fontana, Rachel Ruysch, Dame Laura Knight, Berthe Morisot, Dorothea Tanning, Dame Elisabeth Frink, Cindy Sherman, Dame Magdalene Odundo and Helen Frankenthaler among others, the auction will explore the art historical contributions and personal stories of these artists across 400 years.
