NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s sale of Impressionist and Modern Art on March 10 presents an exciting opportunity for collectors to purchase superb works by the great masters Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Tamara de Lempicka, and Henry Moore and to explore a wealth of drawings, sculpture and works on paper by lesser-known artists of the Impressionist and Modern periods. Prices begin at $1,200 and range up to $80,000. With over 160 works, the sale is expected to realize in excess of $1.5 million. Among the highlights of the sale is a selection of works by the Art Deco portrait artist Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980), whose “Portrait de Madame M” sold for a record $6.1 million at Christie’s Impressionist and Modern Evening Sale last spring. The upcoming sale includes two mid-career paintings from a private French collection – the meticulously composed Nature morte à la plante grasse, from circa 1952
