NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s New York presents Forms in Color, a minimalist sale that will follow First Open: Summer Edition on July 25th. The sale features over 160 lots, from sculpture and painting to drawing and editions on paper, by over sixty leading minimalist artists including: Donald Judd, Richard Serra, Sol Lewitt, and Yayoi Kusama among others. The range of works exemplifies the variety of mediums to which the minimalist art tradition extends. With estimates ranging from $400 to $100,000, this sale has works for the seasoned and new collector alike.

Highlighting the sale is a selection of complete sets of prints by Ellsworth Kelly, Richard Serra, Donald Judd, Sol Lewitt, Frank Stella, and Robert Mangold. Often not seen on the market as complete sets, this sale offers a rare collecting opportunity for these artists. Also featured in the sale are exceptional stand- alone prints such as Kelly’s Red Curve (estimate: $3,000-5,000).

Also featured in the sale are both original and editioned works by Yayoi Kusama, Sol Lewitt, and Donald Judd. Lewitt’s #8 (estimate: $60,000-80,000), Kusama’s Untitled (estimate: $18,000-25,000), and Judd’s aluminum multiple Untitled (estimate: $50,000-70,000) furthers the minimalist convention of this sale. Forms in Color includes not only the works of minimalist masters and their surrounding circle, but also contemporary artists who are continuing this aesthetic and intellectual tradition such as Xylor Jane, Marcia Hafif, Stephen Row, Nigel Hall, Ken Price, and David Ellis.

Within the sale of First Open: Summer Edition on July 24, there will be six highlights from Forms in Color. Works from this group include an important work on paper by Yayoi Kusama from the 1950s, as well as paintings by recent Whitney Biennial participants Dan Walsh and Jacqueline Humphries.
