NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s New York will hold its first-ever evening sale of prints on 27 October 2011. Important Contemporary Prints from an American Private Collection will offer a stunning selection of 37 works by artists including Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein and Robert Rauschenberg, which are notable for their wonderful condition. The Collection is also remarkable for the number of comprehensive sets that it contains, led by six complete Warhol portfolios that were purchased directly from his Factory and had remained unframed until present. Select prints from the sale will travel to both Hong Kong and Sao Paolo, before returning to New York for exhibition beginning 23 October. The bi-annual various-owners auction of Prints will be held concurrently on 27 & 28 October, and will be highlighted by works from Cy Twombly, Gerhard Richter and James Abbott McNeill Whistler.

“This collection and sale represents an increasingly rare scenario in the world of print collecting,” commented Mary Bartow, Head of Sotheby’s Prints department in New York. “An auction offering this many full portfolios, in such great condition, and that have remained in the same collection for decades, is an exciting opportunity for collectors. We are thrilled to offer a group of exemplary works that truly are fresh to the market.”
