Two thousand people showed up at the Drouot on 14-15 April for the auction of 400 modern art works from the Breton collection—and got thoroughly carried away. Total turnover for the three sessions was EUR23 million, well beyond the experts’ most optimistic estimates of EUR16 million.
Antoni TAPIES and Miquel BARCELO have much in common, besides their Spanish origins. Both artists instil their works with an unusually powerful physical presence, through the density of the pictured surface which is scored, uneven, thickened, stained or overlaid with disparate materials.While Joan MIRO encouraged Tàpies to exploit the widest possible range of materials, Barceló was fascinated by André BRETON whose idea of the fortuitous meeting (of objects and ideas) perhaps inspired his experimental quest that led him to incorporate sand and ash, ceramic and bone into his art.
Between photo-journalism and picturesque paintings of society, humanist photography is a superb witness of people's mannerisms and customs. The core of this artistic current occurred after WWII through to the late 1960s. The photographs of Robert DOISNEAU, Édouard BOUBAT, BRASSAÏ, Willy RONIS, and others, fed the newspapers and magazines of the era …and are often reproduced today. These photographs - charged with emotion and capturing fleeting moments of everyday life - have the undeniable documentary value of authenticity, but simultaneously, via their black and white medium, express a certain aesthetic of nostalgia. Over the years, this duality has particularly attracted collectors who, today, are not frightened to pay high prices for big names in photography.
Diego RIVERA was a friend of many of the great modern artists, not only Pablo PICASSO but also Amedeo MODIGLIANI, who painted his portrait, Piet MONDRIAAN and André BRETON. In 1913, Rivera experimented with analytical cubism before developing a mature style with simplified forms and bright colours, christened “naif”. His career took off in his home country of Mexico with the painting of mural frescos whose overt political commitment had a massive impact in the spirit of the times.
