Hollywood Art collections: Important Impressionist & Modern Art at Carlyle Auctions, March 16, 2017.

Beverly Hills, California – March 7, 2017 – Carlyle Galleries International, Inc., (www.carlyle-auctions.com) the online fine art dealers and auctioneers, is hosting their next auction: “ART: European – American – Latin – Asian” on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 10:00AM Pacific Time.

Carlyle’s latest online auction offers a curated selection of nearly 200 lots of fresh-to-the-market paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. Many of the artworks being offered are from local Los Angeles estates and collections of entertainment industry luminaries.

As always, Carlyle’s auction features an eclectic mix of fine art, including: European, American, Russian, Asian, Latin and Middle Eastern, 19th century, modernist, and Old Master paintings and drawings. Estimates range between $100 and $40,000, offering an opportunity for collectors at all price points.

Auction Highlights include:

Macario Vitalis

Macro Vitalis

Macario Vitalis

Up for bidding will be two mid-1950’s masterpieces by Filipino Moderninst painter Macario Cruz Vitalis (1898-1990), regarded as one the most important Filipino artists of the 20th century.

Born in the small town of Lapog, Locos Sur, in the Philippines, Vitalis moved to the United States, arriving in San Francisco in 1917. Vitalis studied at the California School of Fine Arts, and later the Pennsylvania Academy of Art. Macro Vitalis moved to Paris in the mid-1920’s where he met Picasso, and other important modern painters. Vitalis is noted for his post-impressionist and cubist style of painting, shared by his peers Cesar Legaspi, Vicente S Manansala, who sell for as much as $500,000 at auctions.

The two 1950’s paintings, in Vitalis’ signature cubist style, feature rich, bright colors, depicting French landscapes. Artwork by Macro Vitalis rarely comes to the market, and what makes this offering especially compelling is it’s provenance from the collection of Louis & Annette Kaufman.

Louis Kaufman (1905-1994) was a Romanian American Violinist, and possibly the most recorded musical artist of the 20th century. Kaufman, was the most sought-after violinist in Hollywood during 1930’s-50’s, and performed on the soundtrack of as many as 500 movies, including “Casablanca”, “Spartacus”, and other Oscar-winning films.

Kaufman was largely responsible for bringing the once-forgotten music of Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) to its current popularity worldwide. In 1947, Kaufman made the first commercial recording of a then little-known collection of violin concertos by Vivaldi called “The Four Seasons.” This recording won the Grand Prix du Disque in 1951 and was elected to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002

Over the course of their life together, the Kaufmans built a major collection of impressionist and modern art, most of which was donated to the National Gallery of Art and Syracuse University. Their vast, eclectic, and well-informed collection of European, American and Latin art is noted for it’s attention to painterly qualities, color, and quality.

They developed many friendships with artists in Europe and the United States. Kaufman was the first person to buy an oil painting from American abstract expressionist Milton Avery, and he urged other collectors to follow suit. During their many stays in Paris during the 1950’s-60’s, the Kaufman’s collected art of the avant garde artists active in that era. The Macro Vitalis paintings, being offered by Carlyle Auctions were purchased in Paris during that time.

Both paintings by Vitalis, are offered with a reasonable $8,000-12,000 auction estimate.

Carlyle’s Summer Art Auctions Sizzle with Frenzied International Bidding and Record Prices

Bouscharain

Claude Bouscharain – SOLD $3,300

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beverly Hills, CA – September 1, 2016 –  While the summer months are traditionally the slowest for art sales, Carlyle wrapped up it’s best auction season ever.

Carlyle Auctions, which specializes in selling fine art, exclusively through online auctions, sold to bidders in over 35 countries, at prices ranging from $200 to $400,000, across the complete spectrum of art – from Old Masters and 19th Century to Modern and Contemporary – setting record prices for several artists.

What sets Carlyle part from other auction houses, is that Carlyle runs its auctions completely online, without traditional auctioneers or floor bidders.

With it’s recent successful auction season, Carlyle is proving that it can get top prices for consignors, matching and often outperforming traditional auction houses, and even specialty themed auctions.

The key for Carlyle Auctions success, according to CEO Jack Marks, is “innovative and aggressive online marketing which reaches non-traditional buyers, in addition to the broader collector market worldwide. Simply put – we are able to get paintings in front of high volumes of qualified buyers. Another advantage is our smaller size – we may only have 150 lots in an auction – which means that good paintings get more attention, than they would in larger traditional auctions, which are usually twice the size”.

Key highlights of Carlyle’s summer auction season:

 

  • A mid-Century painting by French/South African female surrealist painter Claude Bouscharain, achieved $3,300 when it sold in Carlyle’s June 16 auction, above it’s $1,000-2,000 estimate. After multiple bids on 3 consoles including LiveAuctioneers.com, and BidSquare.com the painting sold to a South African dealer. The same painting had been sold for just $200 in 2010 at Philip Weiss auctions in New York.
  • A painting by renowned Filipino artist Romeo Tabuena painting sold for $7,680 to a buyer in the Philippines, in Carlyle’s July 28 auction. Notably, Carlyle achieved a higher sale price than Christie’s New York, that same week for a larger painting by Tabuena.
  • After frenzied bidding on multiple online consoles, a Johann Berthelsen “Snowy Day” painting, of the Empire State Building, sold for $4,375 (above it’s $2,000-3,000 estimate), in the same June 16 auction to a midwestern collector – almost DOUBLE what comparable paintings by the artist sell for in East Coast auction houses (in peak season).
  • Carlyle’s June 16 auction set a new record price of $6,875 for a painting by 1960’s African-American artist Dan Concholar (which exceeded prices achieved by Swann Galleries, the current market leader in African American art, with annual themed auctions ). Dan Concholar was a key player in the Los Angeles art scene of the late 1960’s, and has been featured in several museum shows recently.  Carlyle’s June 16 auction also featured paintings by African American artists Palmer Hayden and Ellis Wilson, which all sold at the high estimates.
  • One of the most anticipated paintings in Carlyle’s June auction was an early California Impressionist painting of Laguna Beach circa 1910, with an estimate of $5,000-8,000. The un-signed painting in a Stanford White style period frame, was the subject of great interest by collectors and dealers across the country.  The “mystery” painting received numerous bids on multiple auction consoles, before selling to a top California dealer for $8,125.
  • Another standout in Carlyle’s summer auction season was a Robert Rauschenberg painting with estimate of $350,000-400,000. While online auction bidding did not meet the reserve price, the painting had multiple offers immediately post-auction, and sold for $400,000 (including premium) in late July to a European buyer. Carlyle CEO Jack Marks, noted that the consignors were pleased, because the price was in-line with what a comparable work by the artist would have achieved at a Christie’s or Sotheby’s contemporary (day sale) auction – in peak season.

Carlyle’s next auction is scheduled for September 25, 2016, and will feature almost 200 lots of “fresh to the market” fine art ranging from Old Masters to Mid-Century Modern and Contemporary. One of the highlight of this auction will be a selection of wildlife paintings, of cheetahs, leopards and elephants by important international artists.
