Amid the rush of auction day even the most spectacular lots can slide through the cracks. The 25th anniversary auction at Los Angeles Modern Auctions Sunday is no exception. Fortunately, these pieces will remain on the market for a short period at a “buy-it-now” price.
Amid all the excitement of an auction I sometimes get goose bumps at the thought of being in the same room as hugely iconic works of art that altered the course of artistic expression in a single sweep. Marcel Duchamp, Paul Klee, Lyonel Feininger, Franz Marc, and Emil Nolde are some of the most studied and important artists of recent art history.
