Masterpieces exhibition will launch Christie's summer season of auctions from 7th to 11th June, 2013. Curated by Darren Leak and Henry Pettifer, the exhibition will present over 70 works by many of the most celebrated artists in the last 500 years of art history, many of which have not been seen at auction or in public exhibitions for generations.
The exhibition includes works by Basquiat, Burne-Jones, Canaletto, Bob Dylan, Hepworth, Kandinsky, Lowry, Millais and Picasso, as well as exceptional European furniture, decorative arts and early books and manuscripts. The beauty, quality, provenance, rarity and condition of the works exhibited set the tone for the wealth of works to be offered at Christie’s during June and July when art collectors from all over the world congregate in London for the busy annual season of exhibitions and sales.
