LONDON.- Christie’s second edition of Art as Jewellery is dedicated to wearable artworks by artists of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Throughout the last 100 years, artists have often created jewellery as an extension of their practice, viewing them as miniature sculptures that could be worn. A focal point of the auction is a group of objects by BillyBoy*, multi-disciplinary artist and muse of Andy Warhol, including pieces once loaned to Warhol and Hollywood star Elizabeth Taylor. A group of nine Georges Braque jewels demonstrate the translation of his Metamorphoses iconography, crafted by the renowned Baron Heger de Lowenfeld, into elegant and striking pieces with several examples featuring Braque’s bird in flight motif; a diamond-encrusted brooch, a jasper and diamond pendant and a ruby-set brooch. In addition, two pieces by Alexander Calder are examples of his unique, hand-fashioned works that were often given as gifts to friends. Picasso’s muse and second wife Jacqueline Roque is immortalised in two of the seven works presented that feature the artist’s designs. Further artists include Pol Bury, Salvador Dalì, Max Ernst, Yves Klein, Wifredo Lam, Roy Lichtenstein, Man Ray and Victor Vasarely.

AMERICAN ART
14 November - 21 November

This season’s American Art online auction features paintings, sculpture and works on paper from some of the most noteworthy American artists spanning the 19th and 20th centuries, from Albert Bierstadt to Norman Rockwell and Andrew Wyeth.

Christie’s will present an online sale of Asian Contemporary Art comprising prints, multiples, sculptures and original works by noted artists such as Zao Wou-Ki, Ju Ming, Yoshitomo Nara, Yayoi Kusama, and Cai Guo-Qiang. The sale is led by an impressive selection from the Chaney Family Collection, one of the most forward-thinking private collections of Asian Contemporary Art in the United States. Assembled over a decade, these works represent the collectors’ curiosity towards exploring pop culture, politics, and societal change in Asia today. Works by iconic artists such as Yue Minjun, Fang Lijun, Zhou Chunya, MR., and Aya Takano, many of which were featured in the 2007 ‘RED HOT’ exhibition at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, will be sold with a starting bid of just $100.

MODERN BRITISH ART

‘Women in Photography’ is the next installment from this series and comprises works by prominent female photographers including Berenice Abbott, Ilse Bing, Margaret Bourke-White, Imogen Cunningham and Gertrude Käsebier among others. The women photographers represented in this sale have made extraordinary contributions to Modern art movements throughout the first half of the 20th century; the choice to focus on the practices of female artists is one that adheres to the Museum’s commitment to ensuring that the inextricable place of women within the history of photography, and of the broader arts, is fully affirmed.
