On October 23rd and 24th, the Sotheby’s New York department of Prints & Multiples will offer for sale a large selection of important works spanning the 20th century. Highlights include celebrated projects of several remarkable printmakers such as Richard Diebenkorn’s monumental etching Green and The Lonely One, Edvard Munch’s haunting mezzotint of a woman’s back as she gazes into the distance. Andy Warhol’s beloved Campbell’s Soup cans are featured, this set in pristine condition. Targets, Flags and Ballantine Ale cans represent icons of Jasper Johns oeuvre. Pablo Picasso’s tendency towards the self-referential is displayed in the drypoint of first wife, the Russian ballerina Olga Khokhlova, and in the 1934 aquatint of the Blind Minotaur.
