ARTE CONTEMPORANEA E DEL DOPO GUERRA

Lotto 20

CHRISTIE’S. New York, 8 maggio 2012

I Contemporanei da Christie’s innestano il turbo. Record storici per Mark Rothko e Yves Klein. E nuovi top-price anche per Alexander Calder, Gerhard Richter, Jackson Pollock e Barnett Newman. E un totale per la Evening Sale di $388,488,000 (£240,862,560, €299,135,760). Addirittura superiore a quello storico del 2007 (384,6).

 

Brett Gorvy, Chairman and International Head of Post-War and Contemporary Art, ha commentato: “This was an historic event in the auction world, with three major records set in the space of a few short hours: a record for any Post-War and Contemporary art sale at $388.5 million, a record for any private collection of Post-War and Contemporary Art at $174.9 million for the Pincus Collection, and a new record for the most expensive work of the period, with Rothko’s Orange, Red, Yellow sold for $86.9 million. This was truly a season of icons, with the best works by Rothko, Newman, Richter, Pollock, Calder and Klein to come to market in many years. To see so many major records established in one evening was a tribute to the exceptional works on offer this season.”
