Contemporary Masters14 September–14 October
Sotheby’s in Monaco are proud to present a standout selection of works from Contemporary Icons such as George Condo, Jenny Saville, Keith Haring and Albert Oehlen, carefully curated in a dynamic exhibition within our stunning gallery space. Showcasing a compelling group of paintings, sculpture and works on paper, the works of art featured in ‘Contemporary Masters’ bring together the best that Contemporary Art has to offer on the market to date.
Uncompromisingly raw, Jenny Saville’s Self Portrait is a bold and fearless work exposing the artist’s organic painterly style and focus on the imperfections of the human body. Executed in 1992, the year the artist graduated from Glasgow School of Art, Self Portrait will be available for immediate purchase and on view from 14th September. Vivacious and bold, Albert Oehlen's Conrad Veidt is an archetypal example of Oehlen's practice involving paint and found imagery. The abstract canvas' energetic explosions of colour and spirited lines are juxtaposed with the seminal Casablanca film poster, pasted expectantly over the paint.
Renowned for his ever-changing style, experimental use of materials and rejection of conventional aesthetic ideals, Jean Dubuffet began his longest-running series L’Hourloupe in 1962. An expansive body of work that would grow to include drawings, paintings and sculptures, the cycle is typified by free-flowing linear elements and a reduced palette of red, black, blue and white. Executed in 1968, Paysage Amoncelé embodies the most core ideals of the series, including the sense of play, visual dynamism, and sense of scale. The present work was completed in 8 parts which allows the sculpture a true depth of embodiment, expanding the field of vision with layers of intricacies and colour whilst creating a continuity between object, place and the figure.
Executed in 2008, Smiling Woman with Hat is a playful example of George Condo’s arresting portraiture style, playfully drawing together both a contemporary feel with a cubist twist. Imposing in its size, this work on paper is wonderfully textured with impasto and fevered oilstick. Sotheby’s are delighted to offer these works amongst many others for private sale as part of the Contemporary Masters exhibition.
