Second London Impressionist Auction To Feature Picasso, Monet

June 23, 2010

UK (ChattahBox) – A day after Sotherby’s broke a record by selling a Manet self-portrait for 20 million pounds, Christie’s is holding the week’s second Impressionist auction, where pieces by Monet and Picasso will go under the gavel.

The auction will most notably have the famous water lily paintings by Monet, which are expected to catch a hefty sum. Also being features are 68 other paintings by Picasso, Van Gogh, Klint, and Matisse.

“The strong results at our auctions over the last year, and during the last six months in particular, have further fuelled the confidence of vendors. We are witnessing a great willingness from clients to consign works of art of the highest quality,” Giovanna Bertazzoni, the head of the Impressionist division of Christie’s said.

The Impressionist era is well known for it’s paintings of bright, bold colors, and slightly surreal brushstrokes, which capture the living world in a more extraordinary way.

The collection is estimated at 230 million pounds.
