    CHRISTIE’S ANNOUNCE NEW GLOBAL OCTOBER AUCTION CALENDAR

    Wednesday, August 26th, 2020

     A new global auction calendar has been added to the traditional Fall auction series by Christie’s. This follows the success of ONE, the $420 million live streamed global relay auction in July. The new calendar features a mid autumn marquee week of evening and day sales in New York ahead of the traditional November auctions and a synchronised series of sales in London and Paris devoted to the best of 20th and 21st century art. These will be conducted live and live streamed from the Rockefeller galleries on October 6 and 7. London and Paris auctions will be live streamed on October 22 and 23.

    The October New York sales will offer extraordinary examples of Impressionist, Modern, Post-War and Contemporary art, led by Paul Cézanne’s Nature morte avec pot au lait, melon et sucrier, a watercolor still life from the collection of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan. The still life, which dates to 1900-1906, was acquired by Edsel Ford in 1933. In the region of $25 million, Nature morte avec pot au lait, melon et sucrier is the finest watercolor by the artist to come to auction in over thirty years.
