Christie’s Auction House is scheduled to commence it’s Post War and Contemporary Art Auction this week, with an evening auction on the 11th, and a day auction on the 12th. Coming right off the back of rival powerhouse Sothebys’ record setting sale last week , it’ll be interesting to see what the outcome will be for this upcoming action. Totalling at 249 lots on sale for the entire event (52 lots on the evening sale, 197 lots on the day sale), the auction includes a wide spanning array of artworks from contemporary street art to abstract postmodernist sculptures and everything in between.  Including some of our contemporary favorites the likes of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Richard Prince, Barry McGee, Damien Hirst, Feng Zheng Jie, Ai Weiwei, Banksy, and Yoshitomo Nara amongst many others.

Prices range from low 5 figure numbers to the highest expected sale price topping at around $7,810,000 – $10,934,000 for a 1961 Yves Klein piece. A lot of great pieces for sale at this auction that are well worth a bid. Here is look at some of my picks from the auction.
