  • BARNETT NEWMAN TO LEAD CHRISTIE’S GLOBAL SALE

    Barnett Newman’s  Onement V, 1948 will lead ONE: a Global Sale of the 20th Century at Christies on July 10.  Painted in an ink blue palette, dramatically interrupted by a solitary ‘zip’ of aquamarine, Onement V is estimated at $30-40 million. Created just four years after his breakthrough painting, Onement I (1948), it represents one of only two paintings from this early, landmark series to remain in a private collection. The other four are currently housed in major American museum collections including: The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford and the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin.
