Nourishment for the Soul: The Herrmann Collection of Prints by Pablo Picasso

New York

2 Sep - 18 Sep 2020

Sale Overview

Christie’s is proud to announce Nourishment for the Soul: The Herrmann Collection of prints by Pablo Picasso, from the collection of Harald Herrmann, opens online for bidding from 2-18 September, 2020. Harald Herrmann is CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County CA. Harald and Christie’s will be contributing a share of the proceeds to Second Harvest Food Bank Orange County CA and Feeding America®, the nationwide network of food banks and the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Second Harvest, a member of Feeding America, distributed over 42 million pounds of food to partner organizations in more than 350 locations throughout the county.

Combining Harald’s passion for giving back and fine art, the sale will include over 30 Picasso works spanning Picasso’s classical period 1904 to 1937. Highlight of the sale is Le Repas Frugal – created at a pivotal point in the penniless young artist’s career, as he transitioned out of his melancholic Blue period to the more optimistic Rose. The work has always been a favorite of the collector, and the image has taken on added relevance as the hunger crisis sparked by COVID-19 continues to unfold.
