Abstraction Without Boundaries

New York | May 2017

While the concept of abstraction has deep historic roots and a global scope, its presentation has often focused on modern artists from Europe and the US. This season Sotheby’s highlights abstraction’s wider reach, from Brazil to Japan and across decades. Important works from both the Impressionist & Modern Art and Contemporary Art Evening auctions reveal the development of different strains of this multifaceted artistic movement. Join Allan Schwartzman, Chairman of the Fine Arts Division, as he introduces the global language of abstraction.
