Christie’s To Offer Items From The Personal Collection Of Claude Monet – Hong Kong, 26 November 2017
CHRISTIE’S TO OFFER ITEMS FROM THE
PERSONAL COLLECTION OF CLAUDE MONET
WORKS BY MONET PRESENTED ALONGSIDE
PAINTINGS AND OBJECTS HE ACQUIRED
“Perhaps it surprises you to see pictures other than
my own paintings and Japanese prints? I love all beautiful things.”
Claude Monet, 1924
Christie’s will offer objects and artworks from the personal collection of Claude Monet in Hong Kong on 26 November 2017. In addition to being the very first sale dedicated to Impressionism organised in Asia, the auction will be transmitted in real time in our Parisian auction room so that our European based clients may also attend the sale and participate. Titled Dear Monsieur Monet, the collection, preserved by Rolande Verneiges, an unrecognised yet protected daughter of Claude Monet’s son Michel, presents an intimate and family driven insight into one of art history’s most beloved artists. Hidden from the rest of the world, these works have only been seen in catalogue reproductions.
The auction will include early works by Claude Monet that trace his artistic development, ranging from early sketches to pastels and some of the first examples of the artist working in series. These are presented alongside pieces from his own collection by the revered artists, and friends of Monet, including Édouard Manet, Eugène Boudin, Auguste Rodin, Paul Signac among others. Through Japanese prints, personal items and photographs of the artist it is possible to become immersed in the private world of Claude Monet, glimpsing intimate details of a very public figure. Dear Monsieur Monet will be on view in Paris from 8 to 15 of September before touring to Shanghai, Beijing, London and New York. Prices range from $500 to $3,000,000 providing an opportunity for collectors of all stages to acquire pieces from the man considered the godfather of Impressionism.
