The upcoming 20th Century & Contemporary Art Evening Sale presented by Phillips Auction offers a curation of fine art. This sale gathers artworks by key artists of the 20th century, including Joan Miro, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Paintings, pop-art prints, mixed media works, sculptures, and other mediums will be offered.
One standout lot is The Ring by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Painted with acrylic and oilstick, Basquiat’s painting depicts a boxer in a fighting ring, lifting a spear above his head before a crescent moon. Also on display is Alberto Giacometti’s portrait of G. David Thompson, an American businessman. An Expressionist artist, Giacometti was best known for the portrayal of solitary figures. An acrylic painting on wood by Carmen Herrera shows her minimalistic style, using symmetry, disruption, and movement across the canvas to create geometrical compositions. “My quest,” she says, “is for the simplest of pictorial resolutions.” Visit Phillips to browse the full catalog and register to bid.
