More Retail Art

October 2, 2008

Next Tuesday, in London, Christies are holding an auction of Twentieth-Century British Art.  Looking at the range of pre-sale estimates, this is another chance for starting or building worthwhile collections.  The highest estimate is only $35,000, and most are in the $1,000 to $5,000 range.  The catalog is stretched with some undistinguished drawings, I think, but there’s some good material there too.  I particularly like Felix Kelly’s “Beach Scene with Abandoned Tram“:

The estimate for this whimsical beauty is just $5,300 to $8,800.  I’ll check into the results next week.
