Sainsbury Centre Masterpiece at Sotheby’s ‘London: An Artistic Crossroads’ Exhibition

More Information

We are excited to be part of a unique collaboration with Sotheby's, Art UK and eleven esteemed UK museums. This landmark project, titled London: An Artistic Crossroads, celebrates the profound impact of the UK on the international art world. Indeed, London has served as a vibrant artistic crossroad which has fostered a dynamic exchange of creative energy and diverse cultures that has nurtured artistic talents from across the globes. Our contribution, the Frank Auerbach's ‘Head of Gerda Boehm’ exemplifies this beautifully, highlighting the human connection fostered through art.

The Sainsbury Centre’s masterpiece Frank Auerbach’s ‘Head of Gerda Boehm’ is on display at the Sothebys London summer exhibition, ‘London: An Artistic Crossroads’

This free, month-long exhibition (open until July 5th, 2024) at Sotheby’s New Bond Street Galleries showcases a remarkable collection of works. Among these is  Frank Auerbach’s iconic “Head of Gerda Boehm,” on loan from us, which embodies the themes of artistic creation, resilience, and the deep connection between artist and subject.
