BACK TO PRIVATE SALES



Christie’s is proud to present Xhibition Antoni Tàpies365体育备用网址, a private sales exhibition dedicated to the work of one of the greatest Spanish artists of the 20th century. Focusing on Tàpies’ use of the ‘X’ motif, the exhibition explores the rich and mysterious symbolism of this ancient sign as it appears across the artist’s oeuvre

Following its view in Madrid earlier this year, the exhibition will open at our King Street galleries in London on 21 June, where it will be shown alongside our upcoming Post-War and Contemporary Art auctions.
