Phillips de Pury has published the catalog for their upcoming London Contemporary Art Evening Sale and there are a few pieces AM would love to see in our collection. Of most significance is the inclusion of a classic montage piece by Barry McGee. McGee has traditionally not performed very well at auction, but long term, we all know he is one of the most important American artists working today and his inclusion in an evening art sale is a real testament to this. It’s worth noting that he is the only “street” or “urban” artist in the sale.
More standout pieces after the jump.
An amazing Yoshitomo Nara dog sculpture “Your Dog.”
A lovely portrait by Feng Zhengjie.
There are also great pieces from Warhol, Yue Minjun, Wang Guangyi, Zhang Xiaogang and Kehinde Wiley that are worth taking a look at. View all the lots here.
