Today, Peter and Dan combine forces to spotlight several amazing lots from last Sunday’s Modern Art & Design Auction that are still available for purchase — all at amazing prices. These iconic works of art and design, from a beautiful Knoll lounge suite, to a masterpiece by Larry Rivers and a Sam Francis work on paper, span an incredibly diverse price range, and are sure to satisfy a variety of buyers.

Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Larry Rivers

October 8, 2013

Larry Rivers is one of the last affordable Pop artists left. Recently, Rivers’ works have become more desirable, and thus have achieved higher prices on the market. I believe, eventually, Rivers will join his friends and peers – Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and Willem de Kooning – who are among the most coveted artists of the 20th century. Valentine Painting from 1959 has never been exhibited or widely published. Once major Rivers retrospectives are organized, this work will likely be sought after by scholars and institutions. In my opinion, this is one of the finest long-term investments LAMA has ever had the honor to represent.
