Cultural Cocktail Hour
This weekend’s MUST SEE- “20th Century Highlights” at Christie’s Beverly Hills
Culture Lovers, do NOT miss a Cultural Cocktail that blends a dash of David Hockney, a fizz of Frank Stella, and blend of Basquiat. Shaken, Not Stirred.
A thrilling artistic experience featuring the works of artists including: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jonas Wood, David Hockney, Ed Ruscha, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol to Balthus, Man Ray, Georgia O’Keefe and Fernand Leger.
You will have a chance to view highlights from the Post- ￼War and Contemporary, Impressionist and Modern and American Art sales, ahead of major New York auctions in May.
Together, the exhibition ￼encompasses over $120 million worth of art and represent various collections, including those of S.I. Newhouse and Drue Heinz.
Christie’s welcomes all to the exhibition free of admission.
CCH selected this as a MUST SEE experience, because when else do you have the chance to view (in one space) so many seminal works that have been in private collections before they head back to (likely) private collections? It is a rare opportunity to view museum quality work spanning artistic movements all in the same room!
