Modern and Contemporary Art sales
On October 21, 2020, you will be able to attend a new sales method adapted to sanitary restrictions. In fact, two live auctions will take place in Paris and London. So we have modern and contemporary works, such as Banksy's The Show me the Monet, which is a dissident version of Monet's works. Welcome to the evening of Modernisms, offering you avant-garde works from the post-war period.

Sales : Modernities
The masterpieces hidden in Picabia's transparencies
The collection of "A Modern Eye" is composed of different types of works such as paintings, drawings and also sculptures of a rare quality. One finds there in particular the Masterful Forest of Max Ernst, offering a surprising landscape, but also the war portrait of Picasso, painted in 1940. Finally, there are also works by world-renowned artists from a private collection.

Sales: Contemporary by night 
The incredible collection mixing minimalism with Arte Povera, has exceptional works by artists such as Enrico Castellani, Lucio Fontana and others. Alighiero Boetti.
            The works on sale include geometric shapes, colors and materials as in Donald Judd's Untitled (89-19 Ballantine), while in Brice Warden's work Étude Été favors uniformity and precision.
            On the British side, Bridget Riley explores revolutionary trends. There are works that exude a certain energy, sometimes almost violent. Gormley's 2x2 studies death, the human form and fundamental structures.

Sales: Daytime Contemporaries
This sale offers various works of art that reflect a very committed painting, such as those by artists Sigmar Polke, Laura Owens or Antony Gormley.
Also, we find original works by women painters such as Cecily Brown or Bridget Riley who mix abstractions and figurations, imposing a new relationship between form and color.
We discover works approaching the pop current of Andry Warhol, placing the everyday life at the center of the work. One discovers a rather realistic, rich in colors, of our society, which inspired works by Tom Wesselman and Keith Haring.
Finally, we find poetic paintings, mixing darkness with a relationship to the dead with sexuality, with representations of the body.
