A sumptuous melee of abstraction and figuration, Adrian Ghenie’s The Trip blazes with psychological intensity. Illustrating an imagined post-war visit to Guernica by Picasso, the site of the modern master’s acclaimed 1937 canvas, the present tableau blends and blurs past and present, reality and imagination, into a brooding, dreamlike haze. This work will be offered as a highlight in Sotheby's Now Evening Auction, 19 May 2022, presented in partnership with CELINE.
