Perfect Pairings: Prints & Private Properties

In honor of the upcoming First Impressions: Prints & Multiple's sale at Christie's New York, we spotlight five 'perfect pairings' for those passionate about art and architecture


Fine art and real estate share endless intriguing connections. From an architecturally significant contemporary residence in the Hollywood Hills to a striking screen print that frames the iconic Hollywood sign, the two design forms can continually inspire and enhance the beauty of each other. 

We present a collection of five perfect pairings from the worlds of art and real estate, taken from the upcoming First Impression: Prints & Multiples auction and by our real estate Affiliates around the globe:
