RESULTS: HELLENIC ART I WEDNESDAY 25 NOVEMBER 2015

Greek art was in the spotlight at PIASA on Wednesday 25 November, when a sale of high-quality 20th and 21st century works attracted French and international connoisseurs.

Highlight was a rare Eolienne by Takis (lot 33) – displayed in the PIASA courtyard for several weeks ahead of the auction – that brought €95,400, setting a new record for a monumental work by the artist. As Daniel Abadie wrote in Takis dans la Forêt de Signes, ‘what really matters in Takis’ œuvre (is) what cannot be seen: the movement of air….’ 

A 1970 Triple Signal (lot 13) by Takis – important evidence of his research about the materialization of invisible forces – made €39,928.

There was also great success for Nelly’s silver prints from the 1930s, with her view of Santorini (lot 65) soaring to €4,894 against an estimate of just €500-700; and for bronzes –  a pair of sculptures by Memos Makris (lot 52) took €39,928 (est. €18,000-25,000) and a contemporary work by Vana Xenou brought €20,608.
