Exciting Giacometti, Trova, and Calder Works Fetch High Prices at Kaminski Auctions

Beverly, MA (PRWEB) May 27, 2014

Kaminski Auctions of Beverly, Massachusetts is pleased to announce monumental success during the first session of their Twentieth Century Modern sale, two Saturdays ago on May 10th.

Early in the sale, a lithograph by Alexander Calder entitled Navarra attracted significant attention both online and by phone. Strong bidding competition nudged the final hammer price up to $ 2,100. Among the lithographs that performed well in this sale was a work by revered Japanese artist, Zao Wou-Ki. Created in the 1960s, the abstract piece achieved an admirable $ 5,000. Continuing the success for works on paper, was an etching by Peter Milton titled Les Belles et la Bete II, Before the Hunt, which performed considerably well at $ 1,200, well above the items conservative estimate.

Among the fine art sold was an unassuming watercolor, Lesbos, by Georges Rouault that clearly caught the attention of several collectors. Brought to the podium halfway through the sale, bidding began at $ 1,500 and maintained a steady rhythm until finally topping out at $ 7,000. Despite pre-sale interest, Two Lovers, a mixed media work by Antonio Lopez-Garcia, went unsold during the auction, but found post-sale success when it sold quietly for $ 40,000.

One hundred lots into the sale, bidders had the opportunity to secure an original bronze furnishing by Diego Giacometti, circa 1965. The patinated bronze Torsade Table garnered much pre-sale interest, and was subject to significant bidding competition. The piece ultimately sold for $ 150,000.

A small-scale edition of Walking Jackman, by Ernest Trova also sold well. The chromed steel sculpture featured six minimalistic armless male figures and sold appropriately for $ 6,000. The full-scale installation can be seen at 98 N. Brentwood Boulevard, in Trovas native St. Louis. Being re-offered from the January Modern sale was a similar maquette attributed to Alexander Calder. Thought to be a pre-installation model for Jeune Fille at sa Suite (Young Woman and her Suitors), the mysterious sculptural object was ultimately awarded to an anonymous phone bidder for an impressive $ 11,000.

Passed lots are now available for after-auction purchase and can be reviewed by accessing the prices realized link on kaminskiauctions.com. Kaminski Auctions is currently seeking new consignments for the upcoming September 28th, 2014 Modern sale.
