Christies view of post war and contemporary auction highlights. HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE: Peter Doig, Cobourg 3 + 1 More (1994, estimate: £8,000,000-12,000,000) Recently awarded the Art Icon Award at London’s Whitechapel Gallery, Peter Doig has here pictured himself in the Canadian landscape of his youth next to his brother. The work comes to auction for the first time in its history. Mark Rothko, No. 1 (1949, estimate on request) Mark Rothko’s ground-breaking No. 1 is one of the artist’s earliest examples of his mature artistic vocabulary, dating from the pioneering year of his practice and was first shown in 1950 as part of his historic solo exhibition at New York’s Betty Parsons Gallery. Robert Rauschenberg, Transom (1963, estimate on request) Robert Rauschenberg’s Transom comes to auction alongside a major retrospective of his work at London’s Tate Modern, and demonstrates the radical new visual language that went on to lead a generation of American artists towards global domination.
