Christie’s to Auction $18 M. Wayne Thiebaud Pinball Painting Set to Double Artist’s Record

Since the pandemic shutdown in March, much anticipation has circulated around the leading works coming to rescheduled auctions in June and July at the top auction houses. Following the announcement of their global “ONE” auction, Christie’s has secured a major work by postwar mainstay Wayne Thiebaud to go up for sale in the New York leg of their marquee modern and contemporary evening auction on July 10. The work is expected to sell for $18 million–$25 million, more than double its existing record of $8.5 million.

Thiebaud completed only several pinball machine paintings similar to the one coming up for auction from 1956–62, of which Four Pinball Machines is the largest. In November 2019, the painter’s work reached a current record high of $8.5 million when Encased Cakes (2011) sold in a Sotheby’s contemporary art evening sale; surpassing an estimate of $6 million–$8 million.
