How The Expressionists Led the Push Toward Abstraction

New York | November 12

In this episode of Masterworks: Expert Voices, discover stunning examples of Expressionist masters who altered the course of Art History. Julian Dawes, Head of Evening Sale, Impressionist & Modern Art, explores incredible works by Max Pechstein, Alexei von Jawlensky and Heinrich Campendonk – three key protagonists of the early 20th century avant-garde. Whether it’s the electric brushwork and color of Jawlensky’s Blue Kappe or the juxtaposition of formality and abstraction in Pechstein’s Portrait of a Man, these artists broke new creative ground to pave the way for 20th century abstraction. These works and more comprise The Triumph of Color: Important Works from a Private European Collection, to be featured in Sotheby’s Impressionist and Modern Art Evening sale.
