NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s will present the Post-War and Contemporary Art Day Sale on May 14, 2021 in New York. Featuring works by 20th and 21st century masterworks, the sale will be headlined by leading post-war artists and blue-chip contemporary names such as Louise Nevelson, Gerhard Richter, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Henry Taylor and Jack Whitten. Additionally, the sale features an exciting selection of fresh works by cutting-edge talent, including Clare Tabouret, Salman Toor, Derrick Adams, Matthew Wong and Shara Hughes.

Another highlight of the sale are sublime examples of female Abstract Expressionists, featuring extraordinary works by Helen Frankenthaler, Grace Hartigan and Elaine de Kooning, alongside selections from the Rewind Collective. Recognizing the undeniable contributions of each of these women artists, Rewind Collective has taken as its mission the reconsideration of the art historical canon, challenging the traditional preference for the male gaze in favor of the long-overlooked female perspective.

Other highlights include contemporary works sold to benefit RxART including works by Jonas Wood, Julie Mehretu, Ann Craven and Susumu Kamijo and artwork generously donated by Chuck Close to benefit CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort)’s COVID-19 relief efforts.
