Lot 474: Edvard Munch, Der Tod im Krankenzimmer, lithograph, 1896. Estimate $70,000 to $100,000.
At the Neue Galerie
Both sections of the April 28th sale feature important lithographs by Edvard Munch, including his masterwork Der Tod im Krankenzimmer(seen above) and rare ephemeral material like Theater Programm: Peer Gynt. Munch prints abound in the Neue Galerie exhibition Munch and Expressionism. The Neue Galerie show also includes an impression of Erich Heckel’s Mann in der Ebene paired with Munch’s famous The Scream, exemplifying the expertise and attention involved in amassing a private collection such as the one we’re featuring in the April 28 auction, in which Heckel’s woodcut lived with several Munch works.
Lot 365: Camille Pissarro, Paysanne assise, les Pieds dans l’Eau, monotype printed in black, circa 1894. Estimate $30,000 to $50,000.
