The sales of Modern to Contemporary Art are opening in London this week. Christie's sales (branded 20th / 21st Century) open today, and Sotheby's The London Sales open tomorrow for viewing.

As ever, there are some very beautiful and valuable pictures coming up on the block. Christie's sales are led by an 'Estimate upon request' Hockney and a £30m - £50m Magritte. My personal favourite is this hauntingly quiet Monet (pictured), estimated at a mere £12m - £18m. Sotheby's sales are headlined by a £5m - £7m Signac, a £8m - £12m Picasso, and a £5m - £7m Joan Miro. More news in due course!
