All creative individuals–be they writers, dancers, musicians, or movie stars–hope to have their work appreciated by a large and diverse audience. Visual artists face a dilemma in this regard. Their abilities are assessed, their critical reputations are established, and the market for their work is based on individual creations such as paintings and sculptures. These are exhibited for a short while in an art gallery, then (with luck) disappear into a private collection, and may eventually–in the cases of artists with exceptional talent (and, perhaps, even more luck)–end up on permanent public display in museums. Los Angeles Modern Auctions Director Peter Loughrey highlights choice and collectible lots on offer at auction this Sunday by Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, Annie Leibovitz, and Fernando & Humberto Campana.
Fernando and Humberto Campana auction results
Los Angeles Modern Auctions is pleased to announce that our October 2015 Modern Art & Design auction will include two winsome examples of cutting-edge design by Brazilian brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana. With a wide museum exhibition history, their limited-edition pieces are among the most prized by collectors of contemporary design worldwide. LAMA’s sale will include both a Cake stool (designed 2008) and a Harumaki chair (designed 2004)–each a wonderful iteration of the Campana aesthetic: bright and effervescent, representative of the rich and varied cultural life of Brazil and their home city, São Paulo.
