London’s big art sale season is upon us. Christie’s kicks off on February 2 with a 50 lot sale of Impressionist and Modern evening sale led by a self-portrait by Egon Schiele. It will be followed by a sale of Surrealist Art. The top pre-sale estimate for both sales is £129.1 million. These sales open a week of five Impressionist, Modern and Surreal art sales at Christie’s King Street and South Kensington. With estimates starting from £300 up to £10 million, the auctions present new and established collectors with a wealth of opportunities to acquire rare and seminal examples by masters of the period.
