SOTHEBY'S EVENING SALE OF IMPRESSIONIST/MODERN ART IN LONDON

Category: LATEST NEWS

FAUVE ART  AND IMPORTANT PAINTINGS

 

ANDRE DERAIN, LOT 11

 

SOLD FOR 10.867 MILLION POUNDS

ANY EARLY PAINTING OF MOVEMENT IN ART OF THE DAYS OF IMPRESSIONISM, FAUVISM, CUBISM ETC MERITS A LOT MORE RESPECT THAN OTHERS AND THEREFORE MORE MONEY IS PAID FOR IT.

THE CASE OF FAUVE PAINTINGS IS ONE THAT MAKES OUR ARGUMENT HERE. THE DERAIN PAINTING AT SOTHEBYS IS ONE OF SPECIAL INTEREST AND THUS THE HEFTY ESTIMATE OF 7.5-10.000,000 MILLION POUNDS. A REALLY ATTRACTIVE PAINTING OF THE PERIOD, 1905, WHICH I AM SURE WILL ATTRACT COLLECTORS. THE FACT THAT IT WAS SOLD AT CHRISTIES SOME SIX YEARS AGO MIGHT MAKE IT VULNERABLE.

JEAN METZINGER WORK ATTRACTS WITH ITS IMPRESSIONIST-POINTILLIST STYLE

 

METZINGER IS MORE KNOWN FOR HIS SORT OF CUBIST WORKS BUT HIS EARLY WORK IS VERY CLOSE TO IMPRESSIONIST ART AND DESERVES MORE THAN WHAT IT SELLS IN TODAY'S AUCTIONS.

LOT 443 IN CHRISTIES DAY SALE OF IMPRESSIONIST ART IS A PAINTING OF MERIT, OF VERY GOOD IMPRESSIONIST -POINTILLIST STYLE AND THE ESTIMATE IS JUST BELOW IT SHOULD BE AT 90- 150,000 POUNDS.

 

 

 

THIS PAINTING OOZES QUALITY AND THE ARTIST DESERVES MORE RECOGNITION AND MORE SUPPORT FROM THE MAJOR COLLECTORS OF IMPRESSIONIST ART.

IS IT A BARGAIN? NO, BUT A GOOD PAINTING TO ACQUIRE FOR THE FUTURE!!
