Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary art evening sale in New York on November 10 includes acclaimed masterpieces by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jeff Koons and Mark Rothko as well as one of the finest examples from Gerhard Richter’s revered Candle Paintings Series. Christie’s will sell the major estates on offer this season —the collections of computing pioneer Max Palevsky, actor Dennis Hopper, gallerist and taste-maker Robert Shapazian and philanthropic art collector Nancy Epstein. This auction is estimated to realize upwards of $240 million.
“This sale contains the high quality, rarity and provenance that creates fireworks at auction,” Robert Manley of Christie’s New York remarked.
“Collectors are vying for the best works by the major artists of the last sixty years and Christie’s evening sale is loaded with museum masterpieces.”
