LondonFrom Japan with Love
This October, Sotheby’s London presents our second online sale dedicated to Contemporary prints, multiples, photographs and works on paper inspired by Contemporary Japanese culture.
Open for bidding from 5–12 October, this auction features works by Japan’s most internationally-acclaimed artists: Yoshitomo Nara, Takashi Murakami and Yayoi Kusama among other iconic creators who have each synthesised Japanese and Western popular culture with their own signature aesthetic.
In a striking contrast, the sale includes a curated selection of provocative, stark and visceral photographs from Japan’s most celebrated contemporary photographers: Nobuyoshi Araki, Rinko Kawauchi and Daido Moriyama.
Responding to the current appetite for these international artworld superstars, Sotheby’s is bringing the subcultures of otaku, anime, manga, kawaii and kinbaku to London, from Japan with love.
Consignments are still being accepted for this autumn auction; please contact the Prints Department for a complimentary valuation at no obligation.
