Impressionist and Modern Art Day Sale
The Day Sale features the masters of the modern, with over 50 sculptures such as a stunning carved green marble work by Barbara Hepworth, a selection of undulating polished bronze forms by Jean (Hans) Arp, two whimsical sculptural figures by Joan Miró and an early, Cubist bronze by Alberto Giacometti. The impressive selection of standout artworks includes a large-scale still life by Fernand Léger, a post-Impressionist scene of the Pont Saint-Michel in Paris by Maximilien Luce and an enigmatic abstract head by Alexej von Jawlensky. With strong selections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works by iconic names such as Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Pierre Bonnard, Henri Le Sidaner and Henri Martin and modern masterpieces by Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí and Francis Picabia, the 191 lots in the Day Sale offer an exciting opportunity to acquire works from the preeminent artists and movements that defined Modernism.
