As the global art calendar shifts, Sotheby’s is seizing the opportunity to do things differently. In this video, see how our upcoming Evening Sale ‘Rembrandt to Richter’ (28 July | London) brings together spectacular works by some of the greatest names in art history. Spanning over 500 years, it is an auction without boundaries for collectors seeking the best of the best. From Rembrandt, ‘the first modern painter, to Richter who has earned his position as one of today’s greatest contemporary painters by reinterpreting the masterpieces of his forefathers, the sale offers the very best from Old Masters, Impressionist & Modern Art, Modern & Post-War British Art and Contemporary Art. Among the other star lots are works by Joan Miró, Francis Bacon, Henri Matisse, David Hockney and Alberto Giacometti. With many of the works on view for the first time in decades, the exhibition at Sotheby’s New Bond Street galleries will illuminate the often-unexpected connections between artists and periods.
