Modern Art

Pre auction report

The catalogue is opened by a series of selected works from Classical Modernism, some of which come from Reinhard Piper's estate. Max Beckmann portrayed the Munich publisher (portrait 1,400 - 2,000 EUR), who published a number of selected prints by the artist. Particularly noteworthy is the 'Niggertanz', a work from the series 'Jahrmarkt' from 1921.

Already in June, the focus on Pop Art attracted many bidders and in December, another large chapter is devoted to this theme. Among the highlights of the offer are Keith Haring's 'Lost Babies' from the 1980s (10,000 - 12,000 EUR) and Roy Lichtenstein's 'Shipboard Girl' from 1965 (18,000 - 20,000 EUR). With Allen Jones works 'Yellow Figure' (6.000 - 8.000 EUR), 'Free Spirit' (3.500 - 4.500 EUR) and 'Dancing Couple' (2.800 - 3.000 EUR) the medium sculpture is also well represented. Andy Warhol, of course, should not be missing from the Pop Art chapter, selected works enrich the offer. The water colours 'Christmas Tree' (6.000 - 8.000 EUR) and 'Merry Christmas Sprites' (6.000 - 8.000 EUR), both around 1954, get in the mood for the upcoming Christmas season.

All tickets will be on display during the preview from 28 November.
