10 Prints & Editions Featuring Big Names & Small Prices

  • Damien Hirst, Beneficence; and Miracle. Estimate $5,000–7,000.
    VIEW LOT



    Damien Hirst began his series of "Kaleidoscope" paintings with It’s a Wonderful World in 2001. While the paintings are composed of thousands of butterfly wings arranged in household paint and can sell for close to $1 million, these two inkjet prints, Miracle and Beneficience, capture the stained glass-like quality of the paintings at an estimate of just $5,000–7,000. 

  • Pablo Picasso, Composition au verre à pied (Mourlot 77). Estimate $2,000–3,000.
    VIEW LOT




    The image of Composition au verre à pied is included in the deluxe edition of the portfolio Dans l’atelier de Picasso (In Picasso’s Studio), published in 1957. This impression is a proof aside from that edition, and comes from the collection of the artist’s granddaughter, Marina Picasso.

  • Pablo Picasso, Chouetton (Alain Ramié 135). Estimate $4,000–6,000.
    VIEW LOT



    Working in ceramics allowed Picasso the freedom to explore whimsical subjects that are less common in his graphic work. He frequently returned to the owl as subject, as with this Chouetton vase. While Picasso’s unique ceramics can easily bring well over $100,000 at auction, this edition is estimated at $3,000–5,000.

  • Pablo Picasso, Salomé (Bloch 14; Baer 17). Estimate $8,000–12,000.
    VIEW LOT



    Salomé is one of the very first prints created by Picasso. Inspired by the itinerant acrobatic circus performers the artist came to know in Paris in 1904, the print depicts the biblical story of Salomé’s dance before Herod and the beheading of John the Baptist. 

  • Marc Chagall, Bouquet with Bird (Mourlot 298). Estimate $2,500–3,500.
    VIEW LOT



    Embracing lithography later in his career, Chagall quickly mastered the medium and produced over 1,000 lithographs during his lifetime. Bouquet with Bird, created in Paris in 1960, is typical of his lithographs in its strong use of colour and dream-like subject.

  • Portfolio, San Lazzaro et Ses Amis. Estimate $2,000–3,000.
    VIEW LOT



    San Lazzaro et Ses Amis was created in 1975 as an homage to Gualtieri di San Lazzaro, the founder of the influential art journal XXe Siecle. The portfolio includes eight lithographs by some of the greatest artists of the 20th century, including Alexander Calder, Joan Miro and Henry Moore.

  • Andy Warhol, Flowers (Hand-Coloured) (Feldman & Schellmann II.111 and II.113). Estimate $4,000–6,000.
    VIEW LOT



    Inspired by wallpaper samples, Andy Warhol’s Flowers (Hand-Coloured) portfolio was a departure in both subject and method from his photograph-based screenprints of the 1960s. The addition of hand-colouring with Dr. Martin’s aniline watercolour dyes, a technique Warhol had not employed since his hand-coloured books of the 1950s, makes each print unique.  

  • Andy Warhol, Brooklyn Bridge (Feldman & Schellmann II.290). Estimate $15,000–20,000.
    VIEW LOT



    Andy Warhol was commissioned to create this print to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1983. The image became the official artwork for the centennial celebrations, appearing on posters and brochures to promote what was considered to be a tremendously successful city-wide event. 

  • Andy Warhol, Marilyn (Announcement) (Not in Feldman & Schellmann). Estimate $10,000–15,000.
    VIEW LOT



    Created as an announcement for Andy Warhol: A Print Retrospective 1963-1981, held at Castelli Graphics in New York in 1981, this print reproduces Warhol’s large scale Marilyn screenprint of 1967. While the large-scale work can sell for well over $100,000, this smaller print is estimated at $10,000–15,000.

  • James Tissot, Le Dimanche matin (Wentworth 72). Estimate $3,000–4,000.
    VIEW LOT



    Tissot devoted much of his career to depicting fashionable members of Paris society, as with the lavishly dressed subject of Le Dimanche matin (Sunday Morning). Modelled after a series of pastel portraits the artist executed in 1882, the print captures the feathery quality of pastel in etching and drypoint.
