Prints & Multiples: Specialist Picks

  • Marcel Duchamp, De ou par Marcel Duchamp ou RRose Sélavy (La Boîte en Valise), 1935-1941. Estimate: $70,000–90,000.
    This lot offers a mini-survey of the artist’s work, presented in an accessible manner that provides a sort of retrospective in collectible form.

  • Pablo Picasso, Minotaure, Buveur et Femmes, 1933. Estimate: $12,000–18,000.
    This image presents Picasso’s iconic themes of bacchanalia – the minotaur, naked women and drinking are represented in the artist’s works of every medium.

  • Damien Hirst, Godless, 2011. Estimate: $15,000–25,000.
    This work is reminiscent of Hirst’s Pharmacy and his pill cabinet sculptures – fascinating subject matter.

  • Claes Oldenburg, Tilting Neon Cocktail (Platzker 21), 1983. Estimate: $5,000–7,000.
    This multiple exemplifies Oldenburg’s use of utilitarian objects, stripped down to their basic shape and structure.

  • Andy Warhol, Piglet (Feldman & Schellmann IV.134B), 1959. Estimate: $15,000–20,000.
    From the artist’s book Wild Raspberries, this is a beautifully colored and whimsical recipe; a precursor to Warhol’s use of everyday objects such as Brillo boxes and soup cans.
