New YorkImpressionist & Modern Art Evening
Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale features a stunning array of paintings, works on paper and sculpture by leading artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. From Charing Cross Bridge, a luminous canvas from Claude Monet’s renowned London series, to the sublime waterways of Signac’s La Corne d’Or (Constantinople) and the lush banks of the Seine in Caillebotte’s modern portrait of Richard Gallo et son chien Dick, au Petit-Gennevilliers, this selection presents paintings from the most sought-after and revered Impressionist & Modern masters. Enriched by Edgar Degas’ vibrant pastel of a bather, René Magritte’s enigmatic Surrealist oil, and a rare limestone sculpture by Auguste Rodin, this sale brings together exemplary works across mediums and genres. Further highlights include a dramatic courtroom scene by Honoré Daumier as well as a boldly colored landscape by Fernand Léger from his Purist period, and are accompanied by a strong selection of modern sculpture, classic Impressionist compositions and an array of Cubist, Surrealist and Fauve works.
