Christie’s First Open Sale of Post-War and Contemporary Art in July will offer an exciting selection of approximately 300 works. The sale will feature a wide range of works seen in the recent May auctions, but with price points that are accessible to a wide range of collectors. The sale features many notable lots that come from prestigious single-owner collections: Edwin A. & Lindy Bergman from Chicago, Frances R. Dittmer from Aspen, Phillip Schrager from Omaha, Nebraska, and the Estate of Dennis Hopper from California. Also featured are exciting contemporary works at affordable price points by both collectible new artists as well as blue-chip artists: Parker Ito, Yayoi Kusama, Keith Haring, Agnes Martin, Carl Andre, Sol Lewitt, Sigmar Polke and Robert Rauschenberg. The sale will give both new and seasoned buyers an opportunity to diversify their collections and to follow in the footsteps of individuals whose extraordinary eye for quality anticipated many artists’ rise to fame. Almost half of the works will be offered at a starting estimate of $5,000 and under, and several works will be offered without reserve. The sale is the perfect opportunity to discover emerging artists and explore lesser-known works by established artists. All works will be exhibited before the auction at Christie’s Rockefeller Center Galleries from July 19-23.
