BEVERLY, MASS. — Bidders were taken away to a warmer place in the form of a Mediterranean coastal scene cataloged as “Guillaumin signed,” for French artist Armand Guillaumin, at Kaminski’s November 25–26 Thanksgiving weekend auction. The 25½-by-32-inch oil on canvas painting went for $42,000, including the buyer’s premium. It was a welcome reprieve from the cold Massachusetts weather, offering the warmth and color that comes with the subject of a sun-filled, blue-skied, brightly colored coastal city across a calm bay.
The next highest lot was a Louise Nevelson wall sculpture, “The Dark Ellipse,” in monochromatic black from the 1974 Pace editions run, which brought $31,200, including the premium.
A full review of the sale will appear in a future edition of Antiques and The Arts Weekly.
