art-of-the-surrealLondon The Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale and Art of the Surreal launched 20th Century at Christie’s, achieving a combined total of £136,874,598 / $169,998,251 / €160,143,280. The evening saw an electric start with lively bidding for Portrait de Lluis Alemany, a work dating from the very beginning of Picasso’s career (£773,000 / $960,066 / €904,410), and continued with Berthe Morisot’s Femme en noir or Avant le théâtre, which achieved £2,045,000 / $2,539,890 / €2,392,650 against a pre-sale estimate of £600,000-800,000 / $760,000-1,000,000 / €710,000-940,000 and Femme et enfant au balcon also by Morisot, which more than doubled its high estimate to realise £4,085,000 / $5,073,570 / €4,779,450. The nine further works from the Personal Collection of Barbara Lambrecht, including paintings by Kees van Dongen, Raoul Dufy, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Félix Vallotton, each sold above estimate with the group totalling £15,945,000 / £19,803,690 / £18,655,650, to date, with all proceeds benefitting the Rubens Prize Collection at the Museum of Contemporary Art Siegen. The top work of the evening was Paul Gauguin’s highly sought after Te Fare (La maison), which sold for £20,325,000 / $25,243,650 / €23,780,250, while René Magritte’s La corde sensible set a new world record at auction for the artist of £14,441,348 / $17,936,155 / €16,896,378, with Le domaine d’Arnheim becoming the third highest price for Magritte at auction (£10,245,000 / $12,724,290 / €11,986,650), confirming that works by Surreal artists continue to inspire collectors globally. Determined bidding was seen for three oil paintings that trace Le Corbusier’s artistic career from the 1920s to the 1940s from the Heidi Weber Museum Collection. With outstanding sell through rates of 92% by lot and 96% by value there was high energy felt in the first auctions of 20th Century at Christie’s. Registered bidders from 39 countries across five continents demonstrate continued global interest from buyers with notable bidding from Asia. (photo: Art of the Surreal)
