Sale Overview

Christie’s is delighted to present George Club: Twenty Years in Mayfair, selling online from 14-28 March, comprising a wide variety of art, all of which graced the walls of the legendary George Club, founded by Mark Birley in 2001.

Sold to benefit The Caring Family Foundation. The Caring Family Foundation is dedicated to a world free from hunger, harm and hurt where women and children can thrive. 100% of the funds raised by the sales from The Caring Family Foundation’s ‘George Club’ auction, in partnership with Christie’s, will go directly to supporting these causes and will transform the lives of thousands of women and children across the UK and Brazil.

The collection is led by Tracey Emin’s unique blue and white neon I’m a Rare Bear, 2014 which was previously auctioned at Christie's by Emin herself to benefit the NSPCC. Further highlights include the original Dachshund linocut designed for George by Hugo Guinness, which became the club’s much loved logo, a notable array of prints and exhibition posters by David Hockney, ski and travel posters by Emil Cardinaux, photographs by Slim Aarons and drawings by Ernest Howard Shepard, the acclaimed illustrator of Winnie the Pooh. A celebration of George, the sale comes ahead of the club re-opening in summer 2023 having been temporarily closed for refurbishment.
