Partnership

Christies Sale

Tickets: £0.00 (members £0.00)

Cass Sculpture Foundation has teamed up with Christies to organise an exclusive online auction.

This summer, Christie's presents 17 magnificent large-scale sculptures on view in West Sussex, in partnership with Cass Sculpture Foundation. Established in 1992 by Wilfred and Jeannette Cass, this pioneering non-profit has helped support some of the most important contemporary sculptors. All proceeds made by CASS go directly to backing artists and new commissions. In 1999 the foundation introduced Trafalgar Square's enormously successful Fourth Plinth project, bringing outdoor sculpture to the public with a succession of exceptional commissioned works, one of which will be on view in West Sussex.

This selection is the rich reward of nearly twenty-five years of creative momentum, testament to both the visionary energy of Wilfred and Jeanette and the outstanding quality of British sculpture.
