Ilonka Karasz: Country Auction

September 20, 2013

In three weeks, LAMA will host another auction packed with buyers, sellers, and curious spectators who all have one thing in common – they’re passionate about experiencing a vast and carefully curated assortment of international art and design, all in one place. Country Auction, a painting by the Budapest-born artist Ilonka Karasz (1886-1981), depicts quite a different auction, but one with the same diversity of selection and relaxed atmosphere. Learn more about this artist and her painting, which was featured on the cover of The New Yorker in 1953.
