Distinguished by his remarkable generosity, unfailing politeness, and meticulous eye, David Teiger was one of the twenty-first century's greatest patrons and collectors. Driven by a desire for inspiration and buttressed by meticulous research, Teiger built a collection that perfectly captures the zeitgeist of the art world from the 1990s through the 2000s. Defining excellence in a wide variety of collecting categories, Teiger insistently pursued the very best. He surrounded himself with artists and dealers, but most importantly, museum curators, and would take advice from all quarters, relentlessly searching for the best works available, but ultimately with confidence in his own judgement.
Sotheby’s is pleased to present Contemporary Prints & Multiples Online, a curated sale featuring 90 lots by notable post-war artists such as Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann and Ed Ruscha. Leading the sale are twenty-two lots from the Collection of David Teiger, sold to benefit the Teiger Foundation for the Support of Contemporary Art, including works by Maurizio Cattelan, Olafur Eliasson and Takashi Murakami.
