    IMPRESSIONIST AND MODERN ART AT CHRISTIE’S LONDON

    Friday, May 31st, 2019

    Leger and Picasso will highlight Christie’s Impressionist and Modern Art evening sale in London on June 18. Fernand Léger’s Femme dans un fauteuil (1913) and Picasso’s Homme et femme (1968) offer radical visions of the female form as the artists pushed the boundaries of representation during the 20th century.

    Henri Matisse’s Le collier d’ambre (1937) is another highlight. An odalisque painting, it is amongst the most rigorously designed and strikingly orchestrated compositions Matisse painted after the First World War. Henri Laurens’s Homme à la pipe (1919) and Otto Dix’s Soldat mit Tabakspfeife (1918) are both presented to the market for the first time since the early 1960s when they were separately acquired for private collections. The sale consists of 34 works, many of which have been in private collections for many years.
