Head of Sale Simon Hucker introduces us to Lyon & Turnbull's newest auction taking place at the Mall Galleries this April - Avant Garde. Join Simon as he discusses the philosophy behind the sale, looking at a few early consignments.


With an exciting mix of paintings, sculpture, works on paper and the occasional print, this dynamic new auction for 2023 showcases the avant-garde spirit of art in the 20th & 21st Centuries – from the beginning of Modernism, through the social, political and cultural upheaval of mid-Century, through to post-Modernism, Conceptualism and the multitude of stances that make up Contemporary art today.

The sale features work from Britain, Europe, The Middle East, Africa and North and South America, by new discoveries and established names, including Edouard Vuillard, Mark Tobey, David Hockney, Hussein Shariffe & Y. Z. Kami.
