    Major British artists David Hockney and Barry Flanagan and art by Joan Miró and Andy Warhol from the Miles and Shirley Fiterman collection will feature at Christie’s sales in London in February.  Eleven works will be offered at The Art of the Surreal Evening sale on February 2 and the Post-War and Contemporary Art evening auction on February 11.  This follows the successful sale of work from the  collection in New York in November.

    From Minnesota to Palm Beach, New York, and beyond, the Fitermans held a lifelong and deeply shared affinity for fine art, and built a collection that featured artistic pioneers such as Alexander Calder, Jean Dubuffet, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Miró, Claes Oldenburg and Andy Warhol. Their collection was founded on not only the appreciation of scholarship and visual flair but also an understanding of the importance of establishing longstanding connections with artists.
