Launch Slideshow

After an evening which saw the launch of the magnificent White Baaz on the Rendetore Terrace of the Gritti Palace, Sotheby's kicked off the rest of the vernissage week's events with breakfast at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection on the Grand Canal. Outgoing director Philip Rylands took guests on a guided tour of Mark Tobey: Threading Light, before they made their way on to the pavilions of the Giardini by Sotheby's private boat, for the very first glimpse of the 57th Venice Biennale. After a morning spent absorbing the best of the world's art, guests reconvened at the Gritti Palace for an intimate lunch co-hosted by Caroline Douglas, Director of the Contemporary Art Society and artist Isaac Julien. The day was rounded off by a sunset cocktail reception in honour of the Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, at which people celebrated the enduring relationship between Sotheby's and the pioneering museum – whilst enjoying spectacular views over Venice.
