Keep an eye out for these two abstract paintings up for auction at Sotheby's Modern & Contemporary Art Evening Sale in London on 29 June 2021.

While the sale of Cy Twombly's work is always an exciting watch, Kandinsky's groundbreaking Tensions calmées is a highly anticipated lot, up for auction for the first time in 57 years. ⁠⁠

Bought by Solomon R. Guggenheim (a friend of Kandinsky's) in 1945, it was then sold via Sotheby's in ⁠1964 to its current owner where it has remained ever since. Tomorrow it's up for auction with a high estimate of £25M!⁠⁠

Wassily Kandinsky, Tensions calmées (1937). Estimate 18,000,000 - 25,000,000 GBP⁠⁠

Cy Twombly, Untitled (1964). Estimate 5,000,000 - 7,000,000 GBP⁠⁠
