to offer you its second sale dedicated to Urban Art!
This Sunday 20 March 2022, we will have the pleasure to meet you again for this new auction dedicated to Design, Contemporary Art and more particularly to the Street Art movement.
An important number of lots will be dispersed during this auction, that's why a first auction starting at 10:30 am will be organized from lots 1 to 155.
During this first morning, a number of posters will be offered in the first part, followed by a very nice selection of works by Luxembourg artists such as Robert Brandy, Ger Maas, Roger Bertemes, Jean-Marie Biwer or Patricia Lippert. Finally, we will end this morning with the presentation of several "Balloon Dog" and "Sitting Rabbit" made famous by the American artist Jeff Koons.
The auction will continue at 2:00 pm with lots 156 to 533.
During this second and final part of the auction, an important collection of works by some of the most recognized names in Street Art will be dispersed.
You will be able to acquire the "Red Invader 01 Point Sneakers 2003" in lot 160, a "Bomb Hugger" panel made by the artist Banksy for the 2003 London demonstration against the war in Iraq in lot 337, or an original drawing by the famous Keith Haring from 1985 in lot 201.
For lovers of Optical Art, we will be auctioning a remarkable piece, Victor Vasarely's "Iboya MC12" column from 1968 (published during his lifetime) numbered 7/50.
There is no doubt that our Asian collectors will be captivated by the painting we will offer in lot 324, which is an original and authentic work by the Indonesian artist Hendra Gunawan realized in 1965 considered by the specialists as the year of the apogee of his Art. Indeed, he will be later incarcerated and his stay in prison will sink the artist in his creative process. In the work we present here, we notice a certain melancholy in the faces of his three women, a melancholy that characterized the artist at that time feeling already condemned. In this sense, the small sailboat represented in the upper left of the work does not seem insignificant and certainly represents the need for escape felt by the artist in the birth of this dark period.
Concerning the furniture, you will have the pleasure to present two very beautiful pieces of Design:
- An exceptional lounge chair "BARCELONA" by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe - Knoll edition of 2004 on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Barcelona lounge chair created in 1929, which will go into lot 200.
- An exceptional chaise longue model LC4 by Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) by Cassina in collaboration with Louis Vuitton from 2014, sold new in its original packaging which will go as lot 249.
We will end this great auction with several lithographs from a very large and varied selection delighting those who wish to renew their interior decoration with great names.
