san francisco is such a beautiful, and easy place to live.  even so, my husband, bob, and i really miss the museum quality auction previews that we enjoyed while living in london.

so to us, christie’s @ hedge seems like a little bit of london in san francisco.

highlights from the post-war and contemporary art evening sale | christie’s new york | 10 november 2015

when my husband, bob, and i lived in london, we really enjoyed attending the auction previews at christie’s, sotheby’s, and bonham’s in st. james’s and mayfair.  so this week, i felt like i was living in london again.  including the difficulty parking in the jackson square neighborhood of san francisco, near hedge gallery.

christie’s previewed their may 2015 new york post-war and contemporary art auctions at hedge.
