NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s announces Fields of Vision: The Private Collection of Artists Wolf Kahn and Emily Mason comprising paintings, works on paper, prints and sculptures, which reflect the many friendships the couple developed with other artists in their lifetimes. This dynamic collection is characterized by the inquisitive and nurturing natures of Mason and Kahn who, outside of their own studio practices, acquired meaningful works of art by their peers and artists they deeply admired. Mason and Kahn belonged to a generation of painters and sculptors who, feeling unencumbered by the traditional academic system, were able to develop new languages of expression. Highlights of the collection will be offered in a dedicated live auction on May 18, in New York, alongside the American Art Auction, and a dedicated online sale of the collection will take place from May 6-20. The auctions will feature important works by Mason and Kahn as well other distinguished artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Richard Diebenkorn, Lee Bontecou, and Marsden Hartley.
