Untitled, Willem de Kooning (estimate: $50,000 - $70,000)
Just because you're relaxing at the beach doesn't mean you can't bid on original Willem de Kooning works, of which 33 are on auction this very moment at Christies.com. With starting bids from $3,000 to $70,000, the online-only sale features works on paper created during the 1960s and '70s, when the Dutch-born Kooning sought inspiration in the bucolic, sunbathed vistas of East Hampton.
According to Christie's, Kooning's bicycle rides through the country were one of his greatest sources of inspiration. Themes from this sale, which pulls from the estate of Dr. Henry Vogel, Kooning's close friend and psychiatrist, include our area's “beaches, marshes, and expansive skyscape,” all of which play into Kooning's abstract, expressionist ideal of the feminine form.
The "Willem de Kooning: Works on Paper from the Estate of Dr. Henry Vogel" auction will continue online through June 19.
