Christie’s requested the pleasure of The LA Beat’s company for a recent art show and cocktail gala which featured mega art by mega artists, with work valued at over $200 million dollars! That’s so much money I don’t even know how to write it out numerically. The event also featured a conversation with art advisor and author, Barbara Guggenheim.
I was spellbound by the amazing art at Christie`s last week. The event featured Modern, Post-War, and Contemporary art, all beautifully arranged. The artists included Jean (Hans) Arp, Tamara De Lempicka, Richard Diebenkorn, Helen Frankenthaler, David Hockney, Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns, Mike Kelley, Paul Klee, Henry Moore, Georgia O’Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, and Ed Ruscha.
Beloved TV icon, Mary Tyler Moore, collected art by Diebenkorn, and its gentle abstractions in soft oils and pastels soothed me as I stood before the large artwork.
