The two animated films help to instruct prospective art buyers how to purchase objects at Christie's Auction House
Group_3646

Emmanuelle Walker delivers a unique series of beautifully crafted animated illustrations and this time they serve to guide and instruct anyone with a desire to buy or sell art, antiques and fine objects through the celebrated auction house, Christie’s.

Elegantly whimsical and fittingly reminiscent of the style of Jazz-age posters by Bernard Villemot the films tell the story with Emmanuelle's usual charm. 

'The concept was to create some attractive, strong and chic visuals to support an instructional story. I came up with the idea of an ultra-simplified palette and the idea of playing with lightness and darkness when I saw a picture of one of Christie’s sales rooms. The gold-framed painting was hung in a dark blue room right under a beam of light perfectly framing the edge of the painting. A man was standing in the dark observing the beautiful piece of art. That’s when I decided that gold, dark blue and red – Christie’s red of course – were going to be the basic colours.'
