NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s 1 & 2 May Prints auction will include a stunning group of six C.R.W. Nevinson drypoints from his iconic New York series of the early 1920s, formerly from the estate of Catherine Gamble Curran. Leading the group and appearing at auction for the first time ever is Nevinson’s New York – An Abstraction (est. $30/50,000). The sale also includes an experimental proof of Claes Oldenburg’s Profile Airflow (Axsom & Platzker 59) from The Museum of Modern Art (est. $80/120,000). A collection of unusual Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec lithographs includes several proofs that precede his finished compositions, most notably Moulin Rouge, La Goulue (D. 339; ADR. 1; W. P1) showing only the black keystone, an early and rare impression of the artist’s first print (est. $200/250,000). Highlights from the sale will be on view at our York Avenue galleries beginning on 27 April.

Richard Diebenkorn’s large scale color etching from 1986, Green, arguably the artist’s most important print, translates the Ocean Park aesthetic to the intaglio medium (est. $300/500,000). Further highlights from the sale include Jacques Villon’s whimsical and early aquatint Le Potin (G. & P. E75) (est. $20/30,000), two series of screenprints featuring some of Andy Warhol’s most iconic motifs: Flowers (F. & S. II.64 – 73) (est. $400/600,000) and Endangered Species (F. & S. II.293 – 302) (est. $400/600,000), as well as an important and rare work by Donald Judd,
Untitled (Schellmann 25) (est. $18/20,000).

Multiple prints up for auction this May were featured in Sotheby’s Inaugural Designer Showhouse in March, an innovative approach to highlighting the treasure trove of fine art offered this season at Sotheby’s. Six talented interior designers were given exclusive access to our inventory to select a group of objects from which they devised distinctive interior spaces. Daun Curry of Modern Declaration chose Andy Warhol’s Sitting Bull (F. & S. II.376) as the focal point of her room (est. $40/60,000). Ann Pyne from the design firm McMillen Inc. included Roy Lichtenstein’s monumental Thinking Nude (C. 298) (est. $80/100,000) and interior designer Shaler Ladd III featured Francis Bacon’s Étude por une corrida (Sabatier 10) in his space (est. $40/60,000).
