Sotheby’s Print Department is pleased to present our auction of American, Modern and Contemporary Prints on October 27th and 28th. We will be offering 14 James McNeill Whistler prints from a Private Collection, a wonderful group which includes the 1879 etching Nocturne. The selection of Picasso prints is highlighted by two large female portraits; the lithograph Figure au Corsage Rayé and the linoleum cut Portrait de Jacqueline. Within the Contemporary portion of the sale you will find Chuck Close’s large scale pressed paper pulp portrait of Georgia, a very fresh impression of Jasper Johns Painting with Two Balls and Andy Warhol’s iconic Ads portfolio, still in the original box.
