  • Maharajas & Mughal Magnificence — A Collection of Extraordinary Treasures | Christie's

    1 mai 2019

    Rahul Kadakia, Christie’s International Head of Jewellery, introduces some of the many storied pieces from an incredible collection of royal jewels and jewelled objects that’s set to make auction history. ‘This is living history in your hand,’ says Rahul Kadakia, International Head of Jewellery at Christie’s, of a stunning trove of jewels that date back nearly 500 years to the early part of the Mughal dynasty, which ruled in India from 1526 to 1857. India’s rich culture of jewellery is partly the result of natural circumstance. The mines of Golconda yielded the highest grade of diamonds Kashmir produced the rarest and most beautiful sapphires while the greatest emeralds arrived in India from Colombia through commercial exchange via the Portuguese-controlled ports of Goa. Jewellery in the Mughal tradition was an integral aspect of articulating authority, with eyewitness accounts from the height of the Mughal Empire revealing the extent to which rulers valued gems for their rarity, physical properties and provenance.

  • Alice Temperley on Her Love of Indian Jewels | Christie's

    31 mai 2019

    Fashion designer Alice Temperley discusses the eclectic influences behind her romantic, whimsical designs, and shares her thoughts on treasures from the Maharajas & Mughal Magnificence collection. British fashion designer Alice Temperley is best known for her designs that incorporate luxurious fabrics, elegant embroidery, detailed printed patterns and hand finishes. Since launching Temperley London from a hotel bedroom in 2000, she has dressed celebrities ranging from Demi Moore to Kate Moss. Now stocked in 37 countries, and with a six-floor flagship store in Mayfair, Temperley London has become a mainstay of the fashion scene. The designer can trace her interest in textile and jewellery design back to her bohemian childhood in Somerset. ‘My nickname is Magpie,’ Temperley reveals in our video, ‘because I was always collecting jewellery.’ The appreciation of fine jewels is a family affair, it transpires: ‘The whole family has always really loved dressing up and wearing head pieces and costume jewellery. My grandmother used to have lots of amazing buckles and jewels, as well as a very large collection of beautiful lace that once belonged to Queen Victoria.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Maharajas-and-Mughal-Magnificence-Alice-Temperley-9914-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9914 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • Margaret Hamilton: The Woman Who Wrote the Software That Put Man on the Moon | Christie's

    1 juil. 2019

    We speak to Margaret Hamilton, the pioneering software engineer whose work helped Neil Armstrong make his giant leap and changed the world of computing. In August 1961, computer programmer Margaret Hamilton had just turned 25 when NASA issued its very first contract for the Apollo programme. The 10-page contract was with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and covered the development of the guidance and navigation system for the Apollo spacecraft. Computer science was in its infancy in the early ’60s and, according to an interview in Wired, Hamilton was one of the few experts in systems programming. ‘When I first got into it, nobody knew what it was that we were doing,’ she told the magazine. ‘It was like the Wild West. There was no course in it. They didn’t teach it.’ By 1965, Hamilton was working for the SAGE Project at Lincoln Labs, where she had been writing software to search for Russian aircraft and preparing to begin a PhD in mathematics at Brandeis University. When she heard that MIT was hiring people to work on the Moon mission, it was an opportunity she could not pass up. Everything was new and there were many breakthroughs. ‘On Apollo, we realised that what we were doing was different than just coding,’ says Hamilton. ‘As time went on, we learned more and more about putting together code for a whole system with many pieces: software to software, software to hardware, and software to human-ware — the astronauts.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Software-pioneer-Margaret-Hamilton-on-Apollo-11-9947-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9947 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • Hidden Treasures: Paintings From a Radical Era in European Art History | Christie's

    30 nov. 2018

    Art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon admires highlights from the most important single owner collection of Impressionist and Modern art offered for sale in London for a decade, featuring works by Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Bonnard, Matisse and more. The pictures span a radical era in European art history from the latter part of the 19th century to the late 1940s, when avant-garde artists revolutionised the aesthetic possibilities of painting. The collection includes works by Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre Bonnard, Maurice de Vlaminck and Henri Matisse. As Cyanne Chutkow, Deputy Chairman of Impressionist and Modern Art at Christie’s, explains, ‘The works map the impact that each generation of artists had on the other’.

  • The Collection of Drue Heinz | A Legendary Patron of the Arts | Christie's

    12 avr. 2019

    A philanthropist and generous supporter of the literary and visual arts, Drue Heinz (1915–2018) was an influential figure in cultural, social and literary circles in both the United States and Britain. Over the course of her three-decade marriage to Henry J. ‘Jack’ Heinz II, of the Heinz foods empire, Drue, who was born in England, assembled a remarkable collection of fine and decorative arts, centred on first-tier works from major figures of the early modern period. ‘The Heinz Collection includes extraordinary examples of the best of 19th- and 20th-century art, from Monet to Matisse, Picasso to Modigliani and Bonnard,’ says Jessica Fertig, Head of Evening Sale for Impressionist and Modern Art in New York. ‘It was displayed in the Heinz homes so that at every turn the eye would fall on something thought-provoking and beautiful.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/The-Drue-Heinz-Collection-9724-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9724 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

Vanessa Arelle, entrepreneur, contributing editor to Vogue Mexico and Vogue Latin America, and previously head of cultural affairs for Mexico in the UK between 2011 and 2015, lives in Belgravia in London. ‘There is a lot of South American and Latin American work because I’m Mexican,’ she says of her diverse collection, which ranges from contemporary art to old religious paintings, crystals, ceramics, and even battered baseballs and footballs. ‘So, there is a little bit of a logic, but it’s not curated.

    3 juin 2019

    Discover the history of Louis Vuitton travel trunks with handbags specialist Rachel Koffsky. Arriving in Paris at age 16, Louis Vuitton became an apprentice to a box manufacturer. In his early 30s he designed a flat-topped trunk that could be stacked — a radical innovation, as hitherto trunks had featured curved lids.

  • How Balenciaga Was Inspired by the Old Masters | Christie's

    20 juin 2019

    Christie’s Old Masters Specialist Jonquil O’Reilly and exhibition curator Eloy Martínez de la Pera tour 'Balenciaga and Spanish Painting' in Madrid and discuss the influence of Old Master paintings on the iconic designer’s creations. Spanish-born Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895-1972), described by Christian Dior as ‘the master of us all’, was one of the most admired and influential fashion designers of all time. 'Balenciaga and Spanish Painting' (18 June- 22 Sept 2019), a fabulous new exhibition at Madrid’s Thyssen-Bornemisza museum, takes a look at the art historical influences on the fashion great’s celebrated creations. The designer constantly studied the history of art and made use of the imagery he found, from the minimalist lines of religious habits to the black-on-black aesthetic of Habsburg court dress.

  • Studio Visit with Artist Frank Stella | Christie's

    22 mars 2019

    Artist Frank Stella entertains us in his vast Hudson Valley studio, reflecting on works in progress as well as those being offered at Christie’s. Looking back on his six decade-long career, the American artist Frank Stella (b. 1936) seems laid-back about the direction it has taken. ‘I had an idea — a pretty solid idea — about what I did and where it came from,’ he confesses. ‘It was basically making paintings that were 20th-century paintings. That wasn’t so complicated,’ he quips. ‘It was really quite obvious.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Studio-visit-Frank-Stella-9729-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9729 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • The Tibor Collection of Chinese Export Art | Christie's

    8 mars 2019

    Senior Specialist in Chinese Export Art Becky MacGuire takes us inside the Tibor Collection, which was amassed over some 40 years. All works of art embody their histories, in what they depict, the way they were made, how they’ve been used, or the hands through which they’ve passed. In the category of Chinese Export Art, this is true on nearly every count. Each piece affirms a history and a pattern of collecting that foreshadow the dynamic, global nature of art, design, and connoisseurship today. ‘Chinese Export porcelain is porcelain ware that was made in China specifically for export to the Western world,’ explains Senior Specialist in Chinese Export Art, Becky MacGuire. ‘In Europe, we only had clay pottery until about the 1710s or 1720s. Nobody knew how to make true, hard-paste, fine-white porcelain. Only the Chinese, who had been making it for hundreds of years.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Introducing-the-Tibor-Collection-9717-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9717 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • Chinese Paintings from the Chokaido Museum Collection | Christie's

    27 mai 2019

    Christie’s specialist Sophia Zhou looks at a group of Classical Chinese paintings from the Chokaido Museum in Japan. ‘Japan has a really long history of collecting Chinese painting,’ explains Chinese paintings specialist Sophia Zhou, introducing a group of Chinese paintings and calligraphy from the Chokaido Museum in Yokkaichi, Mie, about 100 km east of Kyoto in Japan. The roots of Japan’s visual culture stretch back to China — during the 5th century A.D. Japan inherited China’s system of writing, then in the 6th century Chinese Buddhism and its art reached Japan’s shores. Over the centuries the influence of Chinese art slowly waned in Japan, but collecting Chinese paintings and calligraphy remained popular, particularly between the 12th and 14th centuries, and then again during the 19th and 20th centuries. The Chokaido Collection was assembled by a Japanese politician and industrialist named Yamamoto Teijiro (1870-1937), who consulted with numerous scholars and sourced works through collectors whom he visited in Fujian, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Shanghai, Guangdong, Beijing and Shandong. Once made up of around 2,000 Classical Chinese paintings, the collection still houses ‘some of the finest painting and calligraphy today,’ says Zhou.

  • Studio Visit with Artist Olga de Amaral | Christie's

    17 mai 2019

    A conversation with the Colombian artist in her studio in Bogotá, in which she talks candidly about her emotional relationship with light, colour and space. The career of pioneering Colombian artist Olga de Amaral dates back to the 1950s, when she began making abstract sculptures out of textiles. She has continued to produce shimmering variations of these pieces ever since. In some cases, they hang against a wall in others, they hang from the ceiling in the middle of a room, as installations to be walked around. They are all created by the painting and weaving of myriad threads — and since the 1980s, de Amaral has been applying gold and silver leaf, too. The majority of de Amaral’s contemporary works are composed of linen, gold, paper and gesso. ‘All my things have to have those four elements,’ she explains from her spacious studio. ‘But if I were to make all these things myself, it would take me forever.’ The artist has enlisted the help of a dedicated team: ‘My helpers are wonderful, very sensitive,’ she says with a warm smile. ‘They love what they do.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Artist-Olga-de-Amaral-studio-visit-Bogota-Colombia-9885-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9885 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • The Michael Scharf Family Collection of the Stieglitz Circle | Christie's

    20 mai 2019

    Specialists Eric Widing and Paige Kestenman look at highlights from The Michael Scharf Family Collection. In 1908, a small exhibition of Auguste Rodin’s nude drawings opened in Manhattan. Organised by Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946), photographer, editor, and proselytiser of the European avant-garde, it was one of several subsequent exhibitions designed to expose the bewildered American public to new ideas in modern art. The show shocked society, and according to the Mexican artist Marius de Zayas it took another 11 years of ‘hard labour’ to convince the city that artists such as Cézanne, Picasso and Matisse had merit. Much of that was down to Stieglitz, who tirelessly promoted both European and American artists at his Manhattan galleries, first at the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession (colloquially known as ‘291’), then at The Intimate Gallery, and finally at An American Place. Today, Stieglitz is regarded as a visionary protagonist in the birth of American modern art, and on 22 May in New York a comprehensive array of early, primarily abstract works by the American artists he promoted and who became members of his circle will be offered from The Michael Scharf Family Collection. These artists were often influenced by their contemporaries in Europe, and yet succeeded in creating a new and distinctly American genre.

  • Collecting Art with Daniel Chadwick | Christie's

    8 févr. 2019

    Artist Daniel Chadwick invites us into the romantic Cotswolds manor house where his own works blend harmoniously with those of his father, the revered sculptor Lynn Chadwick. Daniel Chadwick’s father, the semi-abstract sculptor Lynn Chadwick, purchased Lypiatt Park in Gloucestershire, in the southwest of England, in 1959. ‘This place was the same price as a three-bedroom house… and nobody wanted it,’ said Lynn of the medieval manor house, added to significantly in the 19th century, but which was first recorded in 1220. ‘When my father came here, he wanted no detail to take away attention from looking at the sculpture,’ says his son, Lypiatt Park’s current owner. ‘As a child we were armed with paintbrushes. My mother had a paintbrush, my father had one, and they did it themselves. Just painting it all white, you don’t lose the detail — it somehow just takes it away from being in your face.’ The house and gardens are home to some 60 or 70 imposing works by Lynn Chadwick, which in many instances have been paired with Daniel’s own pieces. ‘Mine are little bit more lyrical and airy, a bit more like thoughts, above. His works are sort of heavy and powerful and grounded. I think they look good together.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Daniel-Chadwick-Collecting-stories-9670-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9670 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • The Clarke Collection: A West Coast Love Story | Christie's

    19 août 2019

    For architect Fred Clarke and his wife Laura Weir Clarke, collecting art has been a demanding but rewarding journey. ‘Art is so challenging,’ explains Fred when we meet the couple in their Connecticut home. ‘If you let it be challenging though, it can be one of the most invigorating things you could ever get involved with.’ Over the past 50 years, the Clarkes have assembled a remarkable collection of works on paper, sculpture and design that charts the stylistic and technical developments of post-war art and printmaking on the West Coast in the 1960s, ’70s and beyond. Some of the biggest and most experimental names in contemporary art are represented, including Ken Price, Donald Judd and Vija Celmins. The core of the collection, however, is formed of works by Ed Ruscha.

  • The Tastemakers: CeCe Barfield Thompson and Alexandra O’Neill | Christie's

    The New York-based designers CeCe Barfield Thompson and Alexandra O’Neill met while studying art history at college. Now they have come together to curate our Interiors sale, as well as creating special collections inspired by the lots that caught their eye. For fashion designer Alexandra O’Neill, who designs ready-to-wear clothes for Markarian, the part of her job she loves the most is finding ‘a reference or an inspiration’ around which to develop an entire collection. For her close friend, the interior designer CeCe Barfield Thompson of CeCe Barfield Inc, it’s all about ‘finding the narrative — one-of-a-kind things that come together to create a unique story’. ‘We love antiques, we love design, we love history,’ says Barfield Thompson. ‘So we thought it would be fun to take [those elements] and create something together.’ ‘Imagine having the perfect hostess ensemble,’ says a smiling O’Neill, who produced special fabrics for a collection of dresses, ‘where you can have the dress that matches your linens, that matches your china and crystal. The great thing about antiques is that they can translate into something beautiful and modern for your home, that also has a history to it.’ ‘That’s what we have tried to do with the collections we’ve made,’ confirms Barfield Thompson, ‘to show how you can breathe new life into older pieces and to make them your own.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/CeCe-Barfield-Thompson-and-Alexandra-ONeill-tastemakers-9984-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9984 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • Two Royal Writing Desks | Christie's

    19 juin 2019

    Head of European Furniture Paul Gallois on two wildly different yet equally beautiful 18th-century desks — one made in France, the other in Germany — and the tantalising possibility that their royal owners may have written to each other from them. The Louis XVI ormolu-mounted writing desk shown below was conceived in around 1785 by Jean-Henri Riesener (1734-1806), arguably the most celebrated cabinet-maker of the 18th century. It was commissioned for Queen Marie-Antoinette of France for her personal use at the Petit Trianon, her private residence at the Château de Versailles. The circular mark ‘Garde-Meuble de la Reine’, with interlaced monogram ‘MA’ and a crowned ‘CT’, branded to the desk’s underside, is evidence of this royal provenance. From 1784, the monogram ‘MA’ was branded or painted onto the queen’s personal furniture delivered to the Petit Trianon, then known as the château de Trianon. Approximately 25 pieces branded ‘CT’ and ‘Garde-Meuble de la Reine’ are known, of which seven are desks. The sober architectural lines and elegant proportions of the desk, which is embellished with delicately chased and gilded ormolu mounts, are characteristic of Marie-Antoinette’s taste. They’re also emblematic of the Neoclassical style popular in Europe throughout the 1780s, the decade in which Riesener completed many of his most important commissions for his royal patron.

  • How Robert Rauschenberg ‘Rewrote the Rules of the Game’ with 'Buffalo II' | Christie's

    3 mai 2019

    Photographer Chris Rauschenberg, son of Robert Rauschenberg, on his father’s desire to ‘talk about the world in all its complexity’ with Buffalo II. 1964 was a year of socio-political, technological and cultural change in America: the nation mourned the murder of President John F. Kennedy Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act and The Beatles led the ‘British Invasion’ of the American pop market. But 1964 also marked a pivotal moment in the canon of post-war American art. In a large, lofty studio above a billiard hall on Broadway in New York, Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008) was finalising Buffalo II, one of the largest in his celebrated series of silkscreen paintings that captured the social, political and artistic zeitgeist of the decade. ‘Buffalo II is emblematic of the moment of its creation,’ states Chris Rauschenberg, the late artist’s son. It is also a work that represents an important moment in his father’s career — the series he made between 1962 and 1964 saw Rauschenberg challenge preconceived notions of what art could be.

  • The Dodo: A Bird with a Message | Christie's

    22 mai 2019

    Broadcaster Liz Bonnin and specialist James Hyslop are moved by a rare dodo skeleton — ‘this isn’t just a rare and intriguing curiosity, but represents what humans are doing to animal life on the planet’. Standing 64 cm high (just over 2 feet), with brownish-grey feathers, a tufty white tail, yellow feet and a large black and green beak, the dodo was a strange-looking bird that lived on the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. It was, curiously, a larger relative of the pigeon. The first recorded contact between humans and a dodo dates to 1598, when Dutch sailors ventured ashore on the tropical island. Within less than a century of this initial encounter, the dodo had become extinct. ‘I suppose we could be forgiven for thinking, “Well, that is just a bird waiting to become extinct”,’ says the natural history broadcaster Liz Bonnin. Yet the bird’s reputation for being fat and clumsy is unfair in fact it was perfectly suited to its environment. In reality, the dodo’s inability to fly was an energy-saving adaptation. And as Bonnin says, the island lacked natural ground predators: ‘Everything was rosy’. Dodos thrived on Mauritius. ‘It lived, as far as we can tell, right from the coast up to the highest mountain peaks,’ explains James Hyslop, Head of the Science and Natural History department at Christie’s. So why did the dodo become extinct so quickly? ‘The portrayal of it as a gullible little animal that sailors clubbed... probably isn’t the whole story,’ reveals Hyslop. ‘It’s much more likely that introduced predation by rats or other animals is what really [drove] the final nail in the coffin.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/A-rare-dodo-skeleton-comes-to-auction-9883-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9883 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • Collecting Vietnamese Art with Dr Tuan Pham | Christie's

    24 mai 2019

    We meet Dr Tuan Pham, the San Diego-based collector who assembled a collection of Vietnamese art in order to reconnect with his homeland. For the American-Vietnamese collector Dr Tuan Pham, collecting Vietnamese art has been an educational and emotional adventure. ‘Vietnamese art is really about history and culture,’ he explains. ‘It tells you a story that you didn’t know before.’ The collector’s interest in the art from his homeland was sparked by a chance encounter in the late 1990s. ‘I just happened to walk by a gallery [in South Florida], and as I approached the painting, I saw that it was signed in Chinese characters above the name Le Pho,’ Pham explains. He purchased the painting without realising that the artist Le Pho was in fact from Vietnam. ‘It was the first painting in my Vietnamese collection, and it started a personal journey that reconnects me with my birthplace,’ he says. Pham was born in Vietnam, but fled to the United States in 1975 as a 13-year-old refugee, escaping with his brother. Later, he moved from Florida to California where he met his wife, and in 1992 he founded Phamatech, a biotechnology company and laboratory that’s based in San Diego. ‘So many [20th-century Vietnamese] artists grew up in Vietnam, but left Vietnam for France and made a career out of that,’ Pham explains. ‘I did the same thing. There’s always been a Vietnamese part of me and an American part of me, and this blending of the two cultures is similar to what I see in some of the artists’ work that I collect. It’s why I have enjoyed the [collecting] journey so much.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Collecting-Stories-Dr-Tuan-Pham-9887-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9887 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • Masterpieces of Early Chinese Gold and Silver | Christie's

    30 août 2019

    Ancient China is famed for its love of bronze and jade, but gold and silver also have a tale to tell. Our Chinese Works of Art specialist Michelle Cheng showcases an array of luxurious gold and silver objects that were created in China between the 6th century BC and the 9th century AD. Picking up a gold headdress, above, dating to the 7th-9th century AD, the specialist explains that it represents a high point in gold craftsmanship. ‘It is a really amazing example of the cross-cultural exchanges that are happening in China during this time period.’ Pointing to the galloping horse motif at each end of the headdress, Cheng says that they reference the nomadic culture of tribes that lived on the steppes of central Asia. The hooves of the powerful steed barely touch the ground — indeed, it has been elevated to mythical status, with antlers and flames leaping from its haunches. In contrast, the floral patterns on the band are evocative of Tang-dynasty woven textiles. ‘It’s really the marriage of two cultures seen in one object,’ says Cheng.

  • The Tibor Collection of Chinese 'Soldier' Vases | Christie's

    24 juin 2019

    Specialist Becky MacGuire looks at a selection of ‘soldier’ vases from The Tibor collection, which was sold at Christie’s in New York in 2019. One might think that the root of the term ‘soldier vase’ is fairly obvious, as these masterworks of Chinese Export porcelain do, in many ways, resemble stick-straight sentries. They stand nearly five feet tall — even taller when raised on their carved giltwood stands — and they are often installed in guard-like fashion, flanking doorways and mantelpieces in stately homes. Then there are the silhouettes themselves. Gently curved and exactingly proportional, they swell at what might be one’s shoulders and taper at what could be read as one’s ankles and, higher up, one’s neck. They are vibrantly and intricately enamelled and some are topped with figurines of Buddhist lions, which serve as handles, though one might see them as the pointed or feathered military helmets of yore.

  • Journals from Captain Scott's Polar Expedition | Christie's

    3 déc. 2018

    Tryggve Gran’s journals provide a direct line from the here and now right back to Captain Scott’s freezing, fatal tent in 1912. On 29 October 1912, the search party set out. They were looking for their leader, Captain Robert Falcon Scott, and his four close companions, who a few months earlier had begun a quest to become the first men ever to reach the South Pole. On 12 November, though, came a grim discovery: a tent containing the frozen corpses of Scott and two of his comrades (Edward Wilson and Henry Robertson Bowers). ‘All gastsly [sic]. I will never forget it so long I live — a horrible nightmare could not have shown more horror,’ wrote one search party member, Tryggve Gran, in his journal that day. ‘In a tent, snowcovered til up above the door, we found the three boddies. The Owner [Scott] in the middle... Birdie [Bowers] on his right and Uncle Bill [Wilson] on his left... The frost had made the skin yellow & transparent I’ve never seen anything worse in my life.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Journals-from-Scotts-Polar-Expedition-9575-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-9575 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • A Romano-British 'Licking Dog' Statue | Christie's

    25 juin 2019

    Antiquities specialist Claudio Corsi looks at an ancient bronze licking dog, the rarest object from a complete hoard of Roman bronze artefacts found by metal detectorists in England in 2017. On a Bank Holiday Sunday in August 2017 two metal detectorists, with a combined 40 years’ experience, stumbled across one of the most intriguing hoards of Roman artefacts to be discovered in Britain in recent memory. Under the cultivated earth of a farmer’s field in Gloucestershire in south-west England, the pair discovered an unusual deposit of broken hinges, buckles and studs, as well as 20 fragments of a four-foot tall bronze figure, pieces of cast animal-shaped bowls, half a pair of tweezers and the handle of a frying pan. Additionally, there was a coin minted in Trier in Germany between 321-324 AD featuring a portrait of the Roman Emperor Crispus, the eldest son of the Emperor Constantine. The date of the coin provided a date after which the hoard must have been buried. Among the find there was one object which had miraculously survived intact — a bronze statue of a ‘licking’ dog, the only example ever found in Britain.

  • Frank Stella on Jan Sanders van Hemessen’s 'Double Portrait' | Christie's

    19 avr. 2019

    The American abstract painter Frank Stella purchased this intriguing Old Master painting at a Christie’s auction in the 1980s. Here he elaborates on his affection for the ‘spectacular’ double portrait. In 1532 the Flemish artist Jan Sanders van Hemessen (c. 1504-1556) was in his Antwerp studio putting the finishing touches to what was one of his most important commissions to date. The work, titled 'Double Portrait' of a husband and wife, half-length, seated at a table, playing tables, was created to celebrate the wedding of a local couple whose names are now lost to time but are thought to have been a wealthy Flemish burgher and his new wife. Van Hemessen had spent part of the previous decade travelling across Italy, where he studied the recently unearthed Laocoön sculpture, on display in the Vatican, and contemporary Renaissance works by Michelangelo and Raphael.

  • Studio Visit with Artist Rina Banerjee | Christie's

    2 sept. 2019

    The Indian-born, US-based artist shares insights into her practice and shows us round her studio in Brooklyn. Rina Banerjee was born in India in 1963 but grew up in London and New York. After graduating from university in Ohio she worked as a scientist before studying for a Masters in Fine Arts at Yale in 1995. When asked why she turned to making art she observes, ‘Where else can we have the pleasure, if not in art, of exploring when we are incoherent — but are [nevertheless] saying something?’ Combining fabric, feathers, shells and all manner of organic and constructed ephemera into a conjured cosmos all her own, Banerjee evokes fairytale, fantasy and, often, a hint of dread. Her drawings, paintings and large-scale sculptures and installations explore ideas of identity, history, and ethnic diversity and, as a review in ArtForum commented, the titles she gives these works are often ‘more intricate than their constituent parts’. ‘I like to play with the idea that we have an awareness of our ability to make our own histories, precisely and indefinitely,’ Banerjee explains. ‘That we can constantly edit and reshape it to suit to our own discovery of ourselves.’ Find out more: https://www.christies.com/features/Rina-Banerjee-studio-visit-10053-3.aspx?sc_lang=en#FID-10053 -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • ‘A Surreal Moment for the Book World': The Paul Destribats Collection | Christie's

    26 juin 2019

    Introducing the collection of Paul Destribats, the Paris-based bibliophile who documented the 20th-century avant-garde. Paul Destribats (1926-2017) was one of the greatest book collectors of his generation, and his collection of more than 6,000 volumes, manuscripts and printed documents covering the 20th-century avant-garde is one of the finest ever. The collection offers ‘an encyclopaedic overview’ of the diverse strands of the European, American, and even Asiatic avant-garde movement, and boasts works by some of its greatest writers, poets and artists, including Man Ray, Tristan Tzara, Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp and Pablo Picasso. The core of the collection, however, is formed by the work of André Breton, the leader and principal theorist of surrealism. -- Subscribe to Christie's YouTube: http://goo.gl/Vmh7Hf Sign up to Christie's Weekly: https://goo.gl/kc8qpV Follow Christie's on: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Christies Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChristiesInc Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/christiesinc Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.co.uk/christiesinc

  • A Moai Kavakava Ancestor Figure from Easter Island | Christie's

    8 avr. 2019

    Oceanic art specialist Bruno Claessens explains how this wooden figure — brought to Europe in 1868 from the most isolated island in the world — has had an impact on art history that resonates far beyond its mysterious origins. For centuries, explorers and archaeologists have speculated about the enigmatic giant stone statues on Easter Island. Explanations for their existence have ranged from the idea that they were offerings to the gods to the theory that they marked freshwater sources.
