On Thursday, March 4, Vivian Brodie, Associate Vice President, Specialist, working in Private Sales at Christie’s in New York will lead a virtual walkthrough and discussion of the Post-War to Present Day Sale. This exclusive walkthrough offers not only an early glimpse of the exciting work on sale but also provides insight into how to work with an auction house!
