notes

The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller

On occasion, Christie's has a direct financial interest in the outcome of the sale of certain lots consigned for sale. This will usually be where it has guaranteed to the Seller that whatever the outcome of the auction, the Seller will receive a minimum sale price for the work. This is known as a minimum price guarantee. This is a lot where Christie’s holds a direct financial guarantee interest.

Please note that the work has been requested by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art for the upcoming exhibition Rivera in America scheduled for the Fall of 2020.
