Sotheby's London Surrealist Art Evening

Sotheby’s London is pleased to announce that its dedicated Surrealist Art Evening Sale on Tuesday 5th February 2013 will present exceptional works including one of Salvador Dalí’s most accomplished portraits, Portrait of Mrs Harrison Williams (perhaps better known as Mona Bismarck) commissioned directly from the artist and painted by him in 1943 (est. £1.5-2 million); René Magritte’s arresting painting Les Belles Relations (est. £2-3 million), which was chosen to front the the now-famous Surrealist exhibition Two Private Eyes, held at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York in 1999; and Joan Miró’s intense and brilliantly coloured painting by Joan Miró Le fermier et son épouse (est. £5.5-7.5 million), which symbolises everything he loved about his country.

The sale will take place directly following Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale, and attached is a detailed press release which includes a quote from Sam Valette, Sotheby’s Senior Director and Senior International Specialist, Impressionist & Modern Art, London.

For the duration of the pre-sale exhibition, Sotheby’s Café will be offering a special Surrealist Tea Menu, featuring Magritte-esque macaroons, cupcakes embellished with edible Surrealist motifs and ‘I am not a biscuit’ biscuits, among other treats. Please see menu attached and booking details below.
