Happy Fall,

You may recall a message I sent on June 14th regarding a rare and important oil painting by Alexander Calder. Wellington Fine Art makes a market in the artist and has successfully negotiated a substantial price reduction.

A collector also consigned a painting by Yoshitomo Nara. These works are hard to find as the artist is making the headlines:

Some tickets are still available. I hope to see you in 2 days at Henry Street Social on October 16 benefiting Henry Street Settlement, a social service and arts organization that provides life-changing services to over 50,000 New Yorkers each year. I have volunteered with Henry Street youth programs and have seen firsthand the impact on young people’s lives.

I am on the host committee for Henry Street Social along with great supporters and VIPs. I hope you will join us at The Bowery Hotel for this Lower East Side evening of live music, art, dance performances, cocktails, and special guests for an amazing cause. Learn more and buy tickets or make a contribution at henrystreet.org/HSSocialtickets.

Sincerely,

Tom Sellin

Dear Subscriber,

On Novemer 9, 2018 you received an email regarding the disposition of a client’s Warhol collection. Quite a few of the pieces have sold. Some of the best ones are still available. Similar works on paper which appear at auction are in poor to horrible condition.

Client selling Warhol collection (917) 583-5301

Please read the important Andrew Warhol market update below

For a very long time many of those who are deeply involved in the Warhol market have remarked upon the fact that Warhol’s use of silkscreening has meant that the difference in quality between his serial work on paper and his works on canvas is much smaller than between the usual painter. As the market for Warhol’s paintings rose in value over the last two decades, driving Contemporary art to the forefront of the market, a large chasm opened between the stratospheric prices of the canvases and the quite reasonable prices of the prints. 

Few market participants believe the tapering off of Warhol painting sales is anything more than a reflection of price constricting both supply, few owners want to reduce prices from the current levels, and demand, there are simply not enough buyers at the level where the owners of paintings are willing to sell. 

Buyers have finally woken up to the fact that Warhol prints represent a small compromise in quality for a huge discount in price. That recognition seems to be driving the healthy and sustained demand for Warhol prints we currently see in the market.

Most of Andy Warhol’s prints are more appealing than his paintings in term of subject, palette and composition.

Auction Week Arbitrage Strategy

Dear Subscriber,

A much smaller yet very similar Fontana sold at Phillips yesterday for $ 418,000. This work is 35 % the size of ours . $390,000 would have placed our offering price of $1.1 million at fair value. The fact that yesterday’s lot sold at $418,000 makes our Fontana painting $150,000 in the money.

Furthermore, our Fontana has 4 slits, is a better year, stronger provenance and appears first in the catalogue raisonee. 

Our exclusive on this painting ends tomorrow at which point the work enters the open market. 

LUCIO FONTANA  (1899 – 1968)

Concetto Spaziale, Attese

Markings: signed, titled and inscribed on the reverse 1. Fontana/ “ ATTESE” / 1 = 1 – BB2. Milano, Luigi Fernandi (926/3)

Material: waterpaint on canvas Dimensions: 38 cm x 33 cm (14,96 x 21,65 in)

Executed: 1960.

Ref: 60. T 100

Notes: Export license issued by the Ministry of culture approved. Viewing: Milan, Italy.

PROVENANCE: Private Collection, Italy.

Purchased by the present owner in 1974.

LITERATURE

Enrico Crispolti, Lucio Fontana, Catalogo Raisonné, Vol. II. p. 499, rirp.

I mentioned Italy passed a law in 1937 designating certain artworks which have remained in the country national treasures. For this reason, you do not see many Fontanas in this country. The owner of the work had to apply for an export license which was granted. The painting is owned by a very important man who is well connected with the Italian government and generally gets what he wants. 

I came across these two fascinating links which I wanted to share with you:
