Christie's Paris holds an auction for contemporary works of art and design from the collection of Count and Countess Jean-Jacques de Flers on 21 September 2022 with preview days from 15 to 20 September for potential buyers to visit the artworks closely.
Count and Countess Jean-Jacques de Flers are a couple with a love and passion for contemporary art. They have gathered an exquisite collection of artworks from the world's well-known pioneers of contemporary art. Many of the works in this collection have been purchased more than twenty years ago when the artists were not known as today, which shows the couple's good insight into art. The title "Un regard sur le monde: Collection Comte & Comtesse Jean-Jacques de Flers" is a good choice by Christie's as the collection contains works by outstanding artists from different countries. André Masson, Keith Haring, Seen, Yayoi Kusama, Ai Weiwei, and Anselm Kiefer are some of the artists whose works are featured in this auction.
Christie's, founded in 1766 in London, is one of the world's greatest and most important auction houses that has active offices in 46 countries today. It has salerooms in Amsterdam, Dubai, Geneva, Hong Kong, London, Milan, New York, Paris, Shanghai, and Zurich.
