Picasso, Matisse and Bradford Lead Our Best-Ever Sale

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 marzo 2018

Punctuated by extraordinary results for Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse and a world auction record for Mark Bradford, a historic London Evening Sale achieved our highest sale total in any location at Phillips.Said Edward Dolman, Chief Executive Officer, immediately following the sale, “This is a historic result for Phillips as our 20th Century & Contemporary team achieved the biggest sale in the history of the company. Our total of £97.8 million (US$135.2 million) exceeds last year’s total by almost seven times, an incredible achievement and a testament to the extraordinary team we’ve assembled around the world. This sale continues to demonstrate a solid market for modern and contemporary art, and I expect our momentum to continue in New York this May.”Chairman Cheyenne Westphal elaborated, telling the press, “Our move to expand deeper into the 20th century is clearly paying off as the strong prices we achieved for Modern works such as Pablo Picasso’s La Dormeuse and Henri Matisse’s Nu allongé I (Aurore) contributed to our record sale total. Our terrific showing was bolstered by a world-record price for Mark Bradford’s Helter Skelter I, an astonishing work by one of the greatest painters of our time.”We also achieved strong prices for works by German artists Anselm Kiefer, Georg Baselitz and Wolfgang Tillmans. We’re proud to have worked with some truly exceptional consignors this season, including John McEnroe; the Collection of Betty and Stanley Sheinbaum; and the Triton Collection Foundation.”

Matisse e il suo tempo

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 23 novembre 2015

matisse.jpgTorino dal 12 dicembre a Palazzo Chiablese Piazza San Giovanni 2 mostra curata da Cécile Debray conservatore Centre Pompidou. (la mostra sarà visitabile a Palazzo Chiablese dal 12 dicembre 2015 al 15 maggio 2016). Con 50 opere di Matisse e 47 di artisti a lui coevi quali Picasso, Renoir, Bonnard, Modigliani, Miró, Derain, Braque, Marquet, Léger – tutte provenienti dal Centre Pompidou – la mostra “Matisse e il suo tempo” si prefigge di mostrare le opere di Matisse attraverso l’esatto contesto delle sue amicizie e degli scambi artistici con altri pittori. Così, per mezzo di confronti visivi con opere di artisti suoi contemporanei, sarà possibile cogliere non solo le sottili influenze reciproche o le fonti comuni di ispirazione, ma anche una sorta di “spirito del tempo”, che unisce Matisse e gli altri artisti e che coinvolge momenti finora poco studiati, come il modernismo degli anni quaranta e cinquanta. Opere di Matisse quali Icaro (della serie Jazz del 1947), Grande interno rosso (1948), Ragazza vestita di bianco, su fondo rosso (1946) sono messe a confronto con i quadri di Picasso, come Nudo con berretto turco (1955), di Braque, come Toeletta davanti alla finestra (1942), di Léger, come Il tempo libero – Omaggio a Louis David (1948-1949)
La mostra è promossa dal Comune di Torino – Assessorato alla Cultura, dalla Direzione Regionale per i Beni Culturali e Paesaggistici del Piemonte e dal Polo Reale di Torino e organizzata dal Centre Pompidou di Parigi, 24 ORE Cultura – Gruppo 24 ORE e Arthemisia Group.
