Masterpieces at Christie's

June 13 2013

Video: Christie's

I'm annoyed to have missed the 'Masterpieces' exhibition at Christie's, which was on last week. The Grumpy Art Historian liked it, though as he says:

It was billed as a 'curated exhibition', but was mostly just the most expensive upcoming lots from the major summer sales.

Still, there's no better way of demonstrating the extraordinary quality of some of things you can buy this summer in London, many of which are museum standard. The snappy, if slightly effusive video above gives you an idea of what was on show, and I look forward to next year's offering. Full marks to Christie's for coming up with the idea for an exhibition like this.
