We’re thrilled about the fantastic selection at Sotheby’s upcoming Impressionist and Modern Auction this Thursday in London. Please see below as the selection of sculpture offered is iconic and certainly all opportunities for the right collector. We especially admire the collection of the Block Family on offer.
“Sculpture is like a journey. You have a different view as you return. The three-dimensional view is full of surprises in a way that a two-dimensional world could never be.” – Henry Moore
“I believe that the understanding of the material and the meaning of the form being carved must be in perfect equilibrium,” – Barbara Hepworth

Hepworth focused on how her art interacted and contributed to the total experience of all surroundings. She emphasized relationships; not just between two works of art next to one another, but between the human figure and the landscape, color and texture, and most importantly between people at an individual and social level. Hepworth’s realizations of relationships is part of her living legacy at the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden.
As Ju Ming explored the Taichi Series in greater depth, he began to focus on how each martial art tai chi movement flowed from one position into another. This transition phase between movements inspired his later works in the Taichi Series.
We hope for robust bidding activity and look forward to checking the prices realized.
