The Jagged Drama of Clyfford Still’s Paintings

29 June | New York

In this episode of Expert Voices, Sotheby’s Chairman Lisa Dennison explores the striking forms and chromatic intensity and of Clyfford Still’s PH144 (1947-Y-No.1). With its forceful combination of deep black, bright yellow and crimson red, this monumental work embodies everything that Still stood for as an artist and was notably selected by Still himself for inclusion in his seminal 1959 exhibition Paintings by Clyfford Still. PH144 (1947-Y-No.1) leads a group of distinguished property from the Collection of Harry W. & Mary Margaret Anderson that will be offered in Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Auction.
