Results for Greek Art Reflect Dynamic Development of PIASA’s Specialist Department | JUNE 3, 2015

On Wednesday 3 June 2015, PIASA offered a selection of major works
epitomizing the best of Greek creativity. The 90 lots generated over €540,000
– the highest auction total since PIASA launched its specialist department.
By showcasing artists like Takis and Pavlos, PIASA’s saleroom selection wowed both
Greek and international collectors, with results confirming the importance of Greek
artists on the international market.
Success of New Approach
The sale’s top price of €78,680 rewarded Magnetic Wall IV (lot 39) by Vassiliakis Takis
(est. €60,000-70,000), an emblematic work by the celebrated kinetic artist born in 1925.
By playing with light, movement and music, Takis has become a major figure in Greek
contemporary art. His famous Signals – metallic antennae reacting to the slightest
movement – were also on offer and proved mighty popular, with a Signal from 2009
(lot 38) fetching €31,900 (est. €25,000-35,000).
The acrylic on canvas Infinity Field – Lefkada Series (lot 46) by Theodoros Stamos
(1922-1997) attained €57,420 (est. €35,000-45,000). Stamos was one of the youngest
exponents of Abstract Expressionism alongside Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning
and Mark Rothko. The influence of these illustrious contemporaries can be found in
his work, together with a taste for powerful expanses of luminous colour.
A 1964 poster assemblage (lot 68) by Pavlos (born 1930), exploiting his favourite
technique to create a veritable sculpture in paper, his favourite material, took €51,040
(est. €40,000-60,000).
Also of note was the bronze sculpture Cactus (lot 30) by Memos Makris (1913-93) that
sold for €16,588 (est. €7,000-10,000).
After a bidding war between the saleroom and the telephone, a painted bronze (lot 49)
by Costas Coulentianos (1918-95) flew to €10,846 (est. €1,200-1,800).
The section devoted to artists’ jewellery also enjoyed great success, with a silver
necklace (lot 57) signed Philolaos (1923-2010) – from an edition of 8 – obtaining €2,807
(est. €800-1,000).
All prices include buyer’s premium.
