In addition, this auction brings you a collection of 'Russian Impressionists', including Mai Dantsig. In these paintings, by the father of modern Belarusian painting (lot 38-41), his expressive style is visible, with which he expresses everyday subjects symbolically and metaphorically. These works, obtained directly from the artist by the current owner, each have an attractive valuation ranging from €600 to €2,500.
After the extremely successful sales of Picasso ceramics in 2018, we are delighted to be able to offer you again two lots of this caliber. A rare jug, entitled lot 48 Femme (€8,000 – 12,000), as well as a decorative and highly sought-after pitcher with pouring spout, lot 149 titled Cavalier et Cheval (€ 6,000 – 10,000), will be happy to decorate your interior.
Also made of ceramics, as well as by an artist of Spanish descent, lot 51, The Brush pot by Salvador Dali. Crafted and hand-painted by the surrealist himself, this pot was created for the interior of the meeting place in Figueres where Dalí and his friends met to write the humorous Dadaist magazine “El Senyor Pancraci” to issue. This very rare object is accompanied by a handwritten statement of authenticity by the artist's secretary and also renowned Dalí specialist Robert Descharnes. Valuation € 10,000 – 15,000.
The highlight of this auction is the impressive sculpture by the hand of CoBrA celebrity Corneille. Lot 69 is a beautifully patinated bronze statue on a pedestal, with a total size of 2.4 meters, depicting a subject that was conceived during a 'journey' by Appel and his friend Nico Koster in the year 2000: the Catfish. This monumental bronze, concerning one Epreuve d'Artiste, has the attractive valuation of € 40,000 – 60,000.
Also worth mentioning is the large number of artworks belonging to the pop art movement. This section will start with seven works by or by Andy Warhol, of which lot 95 is the most sought after internationally. Tomato Soup from the series Campbell's Soup I (1968) can be considered one of the most iconic works in Warhol's oeuvre and has a valuation of € 25,000 – 30,000.
'Iconic' seems to be the theme of this auction, as lot 103, by Roy Lichtenstein, can also embody this word. the famous Forms in Space shows you the American flag made from Lichtenstein's famous dots and stripes and this eye-catcher also only has a valuation of € 25,000 – 30,000.
The ZERO movement is indispensable in an international auction like this one, where lots by French and Italian painters, among others, are also offered. Lot 128, however, is by the Dutch artist Jaap Egmond and is very noteworthy because of its extremely complex composition. Valuation for this relief € 5,000 – 8,000.
Lot 135 is one of the most remarkable works in this auction, but very attractive nonetheless. Angelo Brescianini used neither pencil nor brush, but fired bullets at his aluminum canvas and created eye-pleasing compositions. Valuation € 2,000 – 3,000.
This auction will close with contemporary Asian art, with the last two lots by Ayako Rokkaku. This artist only works by painting with her fingers in the famous Japanese pictorial Manga tradition and promises to be a good investment. While international prices are rising very quickly, we are offering lots 269 and 270 with the attractive valuation of €10,000 – 20,000 and €15,000 – 25,000 respectively.
