Online Only Sale | The Athlete: Photographs by Walter Iooss, Jr
Open for Bidding 23 July - 11 August

With a half a century of experience behind the camera, Walter Iooss has photographed thousands of athletes, including the most iconic stars in the biggest arenas under the brightest lights. His unrivaled ability to ‘get the shot’—a skill that has made him a legend among those he has photographed—has allowed him unparalleled access to the inner sanctum of club houses, team planes, and the homes of many athletes. He has gained the trust and admiration of many. “From what I can tell, Walter has never taken a bad shot of anybody or anything. Years later, working together on Rare Air, we had become so comfortable around one another that I barely had to look up. You don’t have to perform for Walter.”—Michael Jordan.

In this online exclusive auction of 38 rare, vintage photographic prints of basketball, football and baseball heroes of the 1960s-2000s, the genius and eye of Walter Iooss are in full-effect, making us fall in love all over again with these memorable heroes of the court, field and diamond.

Private Selling Exhibition | For the Love of the Game: Sports in Modern and Contemporary Art
Open for Browsing 23 July - 11 August

Christie’s is also pleased to present For the Love of the Game: Sports in Modern and Contemporary Art, an online private selling exhibition exploring the theme of sports in 20th century and contemporary art. Artists have drawn inspiration from athletes and physical competition since antiquity, and 20th-century artists have contributed an important critical viewpoint to this artistic dialogue. The old motifs of physical prowess and beauty have been superseded by unique and contemporary themes: the artist as celebrity, commodity, hero and myth.

Highlights Include:

• Jeff Koons (b. 1955), Zungul. Nike poster, in artist’s frame. Executed in 1985. This work is number one from an edition of two.

• Anthony Rianda (B. 1985), Michael Jordan, oil and acrylic and spray paint, painted in 2020.

• Andy Warhol (1928–1987), Pele, unique polaroid print. Executed in 1977.
