OAKLAND, CALIF. — A work on paper by American Pop art icon Andy Warhol offered on the second day of Clars’ March 16-18 auction series sold for $31,250, including buyer’s premium. The mixed media piece shows an ice cream cone with scoops of red, pink and white ice cream atop a cone that is decorated with playful linework reminiscent of Art Nouveau design. This work is one in a series of ice cream-themed designs drawn by Warhol during the 1950s and was likely inspired by the collaborative coloring parties that the artist would host at Serendipity 3, the New York dessert café at which he was a lifelong patron. Another top highlight was the largest single-owner precious metals collection to be offered in the gallery’s history, including uncirculated gold coins, silver bars, silver coins and presentation coins, some in unopened containers. More on this and other notable lots will be discussed in a future review.
