A bird’s eye view of the showroom reveals an impressive variety of colors, materials, and genres in the 533 lots on offer at this Sunday’s Modern Art & Design Auction. One shade, namely, that variously seductive, alarming, conspicuous hue of red, stands out amidst the crowd, and that is the topic of Peter’s Picks for today. For the October 12, 2014 Modern Art & Design Auction, LAMA will be presenting work with the bold inclusion of the color red from esteemed, canonical artists such as Jeff Koons, John Altoon, Richard Pettibone, Roy Lichtenstein, Alexander Calder, Sam Gilliam, Matt Mullican, and Eero Saarinen.
