A&D Gallery to auction art suited to smaller spaces, April 18

LONDON – A&D Gallery will conduct its “Small Art” auction on Saturday, April 18.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide absentee and Internet live bidding.

All 60 lots are 20th/21st century art less than A4 in size (no side longer than 12 inches).

While many art collectors would love to possess a giant triptych by one of the great modern artists, there are a few drawbacks:

1) The prices of major works by major artists are rising faster than property prices.

2) Property prices mean that most collectors don’t have room for giant triptychs.

It’s fortunate, therefore, that many of the most significant artists of the last 50 years have produced originals, prints, and multiples in sizes smaller than A4. That simple requirement (plus a notable reputation) has been the curatorial benchmark for inclusion in this exhibition.

While most of the works are multiples, there are a few original drawings, sketches and unique prints.

The artists include Jim Dine, Jeff Koons, Tracey Emin, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Hamilton, Man Ray, Tim Head, Claes Oldenburg, Jenny Holzer, Eduardo Paolozzi, Robert Indiana, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Ed Ruscha, Ray Johnson, Cy Twombly, Allen Jones and Andy Warhol.

The opening bid is the reserve. Estimates range from 30 pounds to 3,000 pounds ($45 to $4,450).
