Sotheby’s presents its Art Impressionniste et Moderne and Work on Paper sales.
The Art Impressionniste et Moderne sale presents major works by key artists of the 20th century such as Paul Klee, René Magritte, Rembrandt Bugatti and Emil Nolde. Painted in 1937, Abend in N is emblematic of the artist’s subtle associations of geometric patterns and color. Held in the same private collection for the last 60 years, extremely well-preserved, the appearance at auction of this outstanding nocturnal composition is a major event.
The day after, a sale will be especially dedicated to Works on Paper. This sale will present a stunning selection of rare and wonderful sheets by Eugène Delacroix and Victor Hugo, through to works by Sam Szafran from the Louis-Dreyfus collection. The sale is a voyage at the heart of the creative process of many modern masters such as Pablo Picasso, Wifredo Lam, Paul Signac, Léon Spilliaert, Amedeo Modigliani and many more.
