Christie's Expects to Get Over $100M for Defining Modigliani Nude

Oct 6, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

The current sales record for a work by Amedeo Modigliani is $70.7 million, but Christie’s is hoping to smash that at The Artist’s Muse: A Curate Evening Sale of 20th Century Art on November 9. The specific work that is expected to do the trick is Nu couché (Reclining Nude), which was painted in 1917-18 and is estimated to fetch at least $100M at the New York auction.

“This is quite simply one of the most important paintings I have handled in my long career at Christie’s,” says Jussi Pylkkänen, Christie’s Global President and Chief Auctioneer. “There are a very small number of masterpieces that we dream of handling: this magnificent Modigliani has always been one of them.”
