Sotheby’s will host a first-of-its-kind auction on 21 June as it brings together a range of exceptional paintings, sculptures and works on paper from across the 20th and 21st centuries which share one common characteristic – each one is no bigger than the size of the catalogue page on which it is illustrated, in actual size. The auction will bring new perspectives to some of the most celebrated artists in modern history including Picasso, Miró, Dalí, Freud, Fontana and Manzoni.
