LONDON.- Christie’s Impressionist and Modern Art Evening Sale will take place on 20 June, part of 20th Century at Christie’s, a series of auctions that take place from 15 to 29 June 2018. A group of masterpieces from the late 19th and 20th century will lead the auction, including La Gare Saint-Lazare, vue extérieure by Claude Monet (1877, estimate on request), Femme dans un fauteuil by Pablo Picasso (1942, estimate on request) and Landscape by Kazimir Malevich (1911, estimate: £7,000,000-10,000,000). Further highlights include a rare Fauvist landscape by Georges Braque; a vibrant gouache depiction of horses by Franz Marc; a rare and early lifetime cast by Auguste Rodin; Paul Cézanne’s fantasy view of modern life; and one of the earliest representations of René Magritte’s recognisable motif, the leaf-bird. Leading female Impressionists will also be represented with four sculptures from Camille Claudel and works by Eva Gonzalès and Berthe Morisot. Property from the Personal Collection of Max G. Bollag, the influential Swiss dealer, will also be offered, including paintings by Pablo Picasso and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. The Impressionist and Modern Art Day and Works on Paper sales will follow the Evening Sale on 21 June. A focused online-only auction, Picasso Ceramics, will open for bidding alongside the live auctions from 15 to 22 June 2018. All works will be on view at Christie’s King Street from 15 to 20 June 2018.

Claude Monet’s La Gare Saint-Lazare, vue extérieure will be offered from ‘The Collection of Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass’. It is from Monet’s celebrated ‘Gare Saint-Lazare’ series of 12 canvases depicting the modernised railway station. Kazimir Malevich’s Landscape is from ‘The Red Series’, a group of works characterised by gestural brush strokes and an expressive use of colour, referencing both Fauvism and Cubism, and anticipating Malevich’s move towards Suprematism. One of a major series of full-scale portraits painted during the Second World War, and rarely exhibited, Femme dans un fauteuil by Pablo Picasso depicts Picasso’s great muse of the period Dora Maar, the surrealist photographer and painter.

Drei Pferde by Franz Marc (1912, estimate: £2,500,000-3,500,000) is a pioneering painting of horses made in the final years before the First World War in which Marc moved increasingly towards complete abstraction. An exceptionally early and dedicated cast of Baiser, moyen modèle dit "Taille de la Porte" - modèle avec base simplifiée by Auguste Rodin (cast in 1890, estimate: £5,000,000-7,000,000) is one of his greatest and best-known works. Emblematic of the heady emotion, eroticism and vitality that define Rodin’s radical oeuvre, as well as his distinctive, highly expressive form of modelling, the work has become an icon of modern sculpture. Georges Braque’s L’Estaque (circa 1906, estimate: £4,500,000-6,500,000) is one of the first Avant-garde works he created, marking his move towards Cubism.

Driven by an abiding passion for modern art, the influential Swiss dealer Max G. Bollag acquired an eclectic, diverse collection of artworks dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries during the course of his sixtyyear career. Renowned for his expert eye, profound knowledge and innate personal charm and insight, he was a key figure in the art world. Works from his collection include Pablo Picasso’s Tête de femme (1906, estimate: £2,000,000-3,000,000), Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Jeune femme étendue sur l’herbe (circa 1850-60, estimate: £250,000-350,000); and Pablo Picasso’s Femme accroupie (1903, estimate: £700,000-1,000,000)

Camille Claudel’s artistic talents were recognised at the tender age of 12 by the sculptor Alfred Boucher. In 1882 Auguste Rodin, taking on the role of teacher, and Camille Claudel became significantly involved in each other’s lives, with Claudel becoming pupil, collaborator, muse, model and lover at various points in the 15 years they spent together. Claudel quickly became Rodin’s most trusted assistant, learning to work in bronze, plaster, marble and onyx. She also became one of the few assistants allowed to work on Rodin’s marble pieces. Four sculptures by Claudel are offered for sale: La joueuse de flûte (circa 1903, estimate: £300,000-500,000); La valse (circa 1895, estimate: £700,000-900,000); L'abandon, grand modèle (1905, estimate: £700,000-900,000); and La fortune (circa 1900, estimate: £350,000-550,000).
