Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale
Close rate: 93.94% (31/33)
Auction introduction: Highlighting Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening sale this May is one of the most exquisite examples of Claude Monet’s Nymphéas series to come to market in recent history. Painted in 1917-19, Le Bassin aux nymphéas comes from the artist’s legacy-defining late body of work and heralds the dawn of Modernism in its increasingly abstract handling. The monumental painting is joined by an alluring floral still life and a historic landscape by the Impressionist master as well as an exemplary still life by Paul Cézanne. One of the finest examples in private hands, Nature Morte: pommes et poires encapsulates the pioneering trajectory of artistry in the late nineteenth century. Following the guidelines for the Phase Four reopening of Manhattan, we are able to accommodate clients in our building by appointment only. The exhibition for this sale will open on Saturday, May 1 and will close on Wednesday, May 12 at 12PM.
