Modern British & Irish Art

The Modern British & Irish Art department offers paintings, sculpture and works on paper by some of the leading artists of the 20th century, such as Peter Blake, Bridget Riley, Lucian Freud, Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth and L. S. Lowry. Ranging from early British Modernism to the present day, the category includes British Pop Art, Cornish Abstraction, the School of London, Vorticism and the Camden Town Group.

Christie’s regularly holds both Evening and Day sales in this category as well as important single-owner collections. Our team of Modern British & Irish Art specialists work closely with our 20th century international colleagues, enabling us to leverage our network of buyers and sellers for the benefit of our clients.
