Modern and Contemporary Art Auction U-3 Under 3k euros
Art-Rite opens the 2019 auction season with U-3 Under 3k euros sale, a format that during the past year has attracted the interest of collectors and professionals, both for the specificity of the values proposed (all with estimates below three thousand euros), and for the quality and selection of works presented in catalogs.
The Italian market, as well as the international one, is constantly looking for the names of historical artists on whom to focus for future commercial revaluations, and works by young artists, as talented prospects of tomorrow. The selection and proposal activity carried out by the auction houses on the secondary market is therefore increasingly combined with that of the galleries, often overlapping to comfort the market.
It is with this in mind that Art-Rite proposes a catalogue ranging from abstraction to figuration, from graphics to photography, from painting to sculpture, from the beginning of the last century to the present day. For the works of the twentieth century, the common denominator is represented by the quality and history of the product, while for the most contemporary pieces has relied on the significance and relevance of communication and conceptual.
The first part of the catalogue plays with abstraction, optical and informal art (among others Bruno Munari, Piero Dorazio, Franco Grignani, Riccardo Guarneri, Carla Accardi, Rodolfo Aricò, Enrique Careaga, Ludwig Wilding, Max Bill, Fausto Melotti, Emilio Vedova, Enrico Castellani, François Morellet), to get to the historical and post-war figuration (with Max Beckmann, Fortunato Depero, Mario Sironi, Marino Marini, Giorgio De Chirico, Marc Chagall, Graham Sutherland).
The second part of the catalogue, on the other hand, lives on pop instances (among others Valerio Adami, Enrico Baj, Wayne Thiebaud, James Rosenquist, Mel Ramos), passing through poverty and conceptualism (Michelangelo Pistoletto, Jannis Kounellis, Roman Opalka, Alighiero Boetti, Maria Lai, Vincenzo Agnetti), up to the final part, introduced by a splendid selection of works by Franco Fontana, dedicated to contemporary. Marc Queen, Art in Ruins, Tracy Emin, Alexander Wolff, Arcangelo Sassolino, Domenico Piccolo, Omar Galliani, Robert Gligorov, Timothy Greenfield Sanders and Pierre Poggi stand out in what is a wide and valid window of bets on tomorrow.
