Lot description
This 2003 print of Christian Marclay's "Baltimore II" (2000) measures 13.25 x 19.75 inches (33.7 x 50.2 cm). It is signed, numbered, and dated verso by the artist. Here, Marclay depicts an empty music classroom. With its ruled chalkboards standing at oblique angles and its subtle play between late afternoon sunlight and shadow, "Baltimore II" is a study in perspective and light. This work is part of a series of images by Marclay, set in cities across the world, that reflects the artist's engagement with the world of music.

Christian Marclay (American, b. 1955) is a contemporary artist best known for his work across several media that explores the relationship between image and sound. From his early performance art to his mixed media works of the ’80s and ’90s to his video art of the last decade, Marclay has consistently sought to make tangible the expressive possibilities and social implications of sound and music. He has had solo exhibitions at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Los Angeles, CA (2011); the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea (2010); the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY (2010); the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Geneva, Switzerland (2008); the Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden (2006); Barbican Art Gallery, London, England (2005); the Tate Modern, London, England (2004); and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA (2001), among others. In 2011, Marclay won the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale for “The Clock” (2010), a 24-hour-long video piece so popular that he was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World the following year. The artist lives and works in New York, NY.
