Drouot Paris: auctions at 3 million for the dinosaur

An extremely rare allosaur skeleton, one of the oldest dinosaurs, called the "grandfather" of the dreaded T-Rex, was auctioned Tuesday for a little over 3 million euros (including costs), or double of what was estimated at the Hôtel Drouot in Paris with the auction house Binoche and Giquello

The sale to an anonymous bidder of this 150 million-year-old (Upper Jurassic) allosaur, ten meters long and 3,5 meters high, comes at a time when dinosaur skeletons are reaching record amounts.

Listing of the auction house:

Over 150 million years old, the allosaur skeleton featured in this sale was discovered in 2016 in Wyoming, United States. Its spectacular dimensions - H. 3,50 m; W. 2,25 m; l. 10 m - make him one of the longest specimens of his species known to date. In fact, adult allosaurs were on average 8,5 meters long. Only one other allosaur skeleton compares to ours: the one in the American Museum of Natural History in New York, which is 9,7 meters long.
Our bipedal, carnivorous and ferocious dinosaur had a taste for combat. Traces of injuries were discovered on several ribs during the restoration of the bones. Further scientific examinations, by X-rays, then made it possible to formulate the hypothesis of a titanic fight scene between our allosaur and its rival.
The allosaurus is undeniably the star of this sale! A series of sharp teeth, discovered in position in the jawbone of another specimen, will also be auctioned. Also discovered in Wyoming, this fragment of skeleton, characteristic of the animal, is estimated between 60 and 000 €.

Christie's: STAN the T. rex at $ 32 million at auction

The Rex Skeleton is worth $ 31,8 million and it's a whole new world record.

The sale of some of the world's most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons shattered auction ratings, as it cost $ 31,8 million at a Christie's auction on Tuesday night. This sale helped set a new record for dinosaur skeletons or fossils never sold at public auction.

STAN the T. rex, named after the paleontologist who discovered his first bones, traveled the planet some 67 million years ago. His skeleton was presented at the public auction in the flagship area of ​​New York City, with an estimated price of between $ 6 million and $ 8 million.
The skeleton was part of Christie's 20th Century Night Sale, which auctioned 59 works spanning the 20th and also the 21st century, including a painting by American musician Cy Twombly who opted for nearly 38,7 , $ XNUMX million.

For 20 years, STAN has been researched at the Black Hills Institute in South Dakota, and paleontologists have produced many papers and studies on this subject.

First erroneously identified as Triceratops bones, they remained intact until 1992, when paleontologists understood their true origin.

It then took more than 30 hours of manual labor to dig deep and also to bring back the skeleton. Researchers have since discovered that STAN suffered a fractured neck during her lifetime, after which two of her vertebrae merged.

There are also indications of cleft wounds in his skull and rib that may have been caused by T. rex.

Charlotte Perriand and Les Arcs

Charlotte Perriand and Les Arcs: a history of comfort and design

Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) is a French architect and designer who became known by collaborating with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, cousin of Corbusier. It is also important for the construction of the first house in the Petite Architecture style, the Abri Bivouac (1936).

Perriand started working with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in 1924. Together, they designed the B306 chair and the "Gran Confort" club chair with a steel frame. His first creations were made with expensive and technically difficult materials to work with. However, in the 1930s, her focus became more egalitarian and she began to work with wood and cane, more affordable materials.

She then worked for a few years with Jean Prouvé. However, in 1940, after France surrendered in World War II, Perriand traveled to Japan and Vietnam, before returning to Paris, France, in 1946, where she resumed her work as a freelance designer. One of her major works from this period was the Three Arcs which she designed for Les Arcs, in Savoie, France.

Les Arcs, Savoie, France

Les Arcs is one of Perriand's major works. It is a ski resort located in Savoie, France, divided into five areas - Bourg-Saint-Maurice, Arc 1600, Arc 1800, Arc 1950, and Arc 2000. Perriand was responsible for three of these areas: Arc 1600, Arc 1800 and Arc 2000.

The main design concepts were that the buildings should follow the landscape in such a way that when you are on top of the mountain the buildings disappear, and visitors who come to a ski resort do not want to stay in a room. hotel. With that in mind, Perriand designed the buildings to reassemble a staircase, using recesses after a certain level, and following the contour lines of the mountain they are built into.

She also focused on creating minimalist spaces, open to the sun and surrounding nature, using glass and bright colors in the interior. The idea was that, as those who stay at the hotel are interested in the nature around the resort, they can see everything around them inside the building and in their rooms.

A sculpture by Claude Lalanne at auction

Claude Lalanne sculpture purchased directly from an artist could fetch $ 150 at Heritage Design auction

The event also features Japanese fashion company Comme des Garcons

DALLAS, Texas (September 16, 2020) - La Petite Fille à la Poule by Claude Lalanne could fetch $ 150 or more at Heritage Auctions design auction on October 000.

"The work of François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne is very appreciated and this sculpture (estimate: 100-000 dollars), in particular, has remained at the center of our client's homes, first in Paris then in Los Angeles. , for over three decades, "said Brent Lewis, Design Director of Heritage Auctions. "It was acquired directly from the artists during a visit to their studio outside of Paris and is an extraordinary example of Les Lalanne's unique artistic vision."

Heritage also offers a collection of nearly 100 rare pieces from Comme des Garcons, the legendary Japanese fashion company, each designed by founder Rei Kawakubo or Junya Watanabe. CDG is one of the most innovative fashion houses of the last century and a survey of Kawakubo's work was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2017. This carefully assembled collection includes a variety of works showing the avant-garde approach that Kawakubo and his collaborators have taken to the art of fashion.

Mathieu Matégot's dining table, designed in 1958, 1982 (estimate: $ 30 to $ 000) reflects the artist's preference for the use of metal as one of his favorite materials. This rare table model was designed and exhibited in 50, at the Salon des Arts Ménagers in Paris, in a room called "Living room-terrace of a villa". The base, composed of architectural and angular rows of black patinated metal and brass columns, accommodates the original sculpted glass top, and exhibits Mategot's predilection for the combination of biomorphic forms with restricted rectilinear supports.

The Important Vase by René Buthaud, circa 1925 (estimate: 20 to 000 dollars) was exhibited at the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris in 30, and at the Museum of Decorative Arts of the City of Bordeaux , "R Buthaud Ceramiques" in 000. Buthaud was arguably the most influential Parisian ceramist of the 1925s and remains exceptionally important in the history of French Art Deco.

Another highlight of the sale is a pair of extremely rare urns by Gio Ponti. The legendary Italian architect and designer Gio Ponti made it his mission to bring his inspired vision of Modernism, which began at the turn of the 1920th century and continued throughout his long and prolific career, to the world. In the 1925s, he joined ceramic maker Richard Ginori to create new decorative items that matched his vision. Under Ponti's direction, Ginori created stunningly elegant and sophisticated table sets, vases, fillers and more, in a slightly neoclassical style, and with colorful and nuanced decoration. Their collaboration was so fruitful that Ginori received two grand prizes at the famous International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts in Paris in 8. It is an extremely rare pair of urns (estimate: $ 000 to $ 12 ), in various colors, created during this fruitful period at Ginori and designed by Ponti.

The vases were returnable by a couple in Texas who withheld them in an estate sale because something about the inherited pair seemed "special," according to consignees. Their inclination has been confirmed by the experts at Heritage Auctions and by Brian Kish, curator and specialist in 1926th century Italian architecture and design and associate member of the Gio Ponti archives. From Ponti's XNUMX "Lancesca" series, each vase features an inverted bell-shaped body, hand painted with an exaggerated diagonal of trompe-l'oeil steps in purple and pastel green, on a plinth with stripes golden. The geometric design of the surface is complemented by the highly stylized acanthus-shaped handles, molded into either side of the body. According to Kish, the multiple markings on the ballot boxes indicate that they were produced as one-off exhibition pieces or for a very limited series.

Paul Rudolph's sofa at Rudolph Penthouse, 23 Beekman Place, circa 1975 (estimate: $ 6-000) is from the artist's New York apartment, which was one of Rudolph's most ambitious projects. . The multi-level experimental triplex was filled with bespoke furniture he had designed; after his death it was bought by the great collectors and experts in design and architecture of the twentieth century, Michael and Gabrielle Boyd, who began to restore the house '; they kept this sofa in their personal collection for many years.

A transplastic chair Fernando and Humberto Campana, 2006 (estimate: 5 to 000 dollars) comes from a collection they introduced in 7 with an exhibition at the Albion Gallery in London. Made up of seats in various configurations, including single-seat chairs like the proposed lot, as well as larger biomorphic benches with multiple seats in incongruous shapes and forms, the plastic seats are held in extensions of one fiber. natural Brazilian called Apui, modifying the original, more familiar shapes. The Campana brothers' semi-organic creations, like the offered chair, reflect their vision of a trend to replace wicker pieces in Brazilian terraces and outdoor cafes with plastic ones.

French designer and decorator Mattia Bonetti started his career decades ago, and has spent many years collaborating with designer Elizabeth Garouste, creating unique, curious and luxurious furniture in Paris and in major centers around the world. This painting, dating from 1990 (estimate: $ 2-000), was purchased directly by art collectors in Los Angeles who have filled their homes with designer works, and have remained there until now. It has been exhibited in galleries around the world; his works are part of the collections of the Center Georges Pompidou, Paris, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris and the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, New York among others.

The auction will feature a fine selection of studio glasses from a major European collection, including works by Yoichi Ohira, Michael Glancy, Toots Zynsky and Dan Dailey.

Record auction for comics: $ 9,5m

Sold-out comic book auctions bring in $ 9,5 million at heritage auction
The Princess of Mars painting sells for $ 1,2 million; Pokémon sets world record September 10-13
DALLAS, Texas (September 14, 2020) - A historic masterpiece painted by a legend. An old version of a well-known video game title. A collection of boxed game cards sold for record amount. Hundreds of comic book covers and interiors as well as other original pieces painted in pencil by comedians and legends. And a parade of titles ranging from the beginnings of comics to its modern, dynamic and evocative era.
All of this and much more was on offer at Heritage Auctions' Comics & Comic Art event, which took place over four days, September 10-13. And when the auction ended, the total realized price was as impressive as the assortment presented: $ 9.
Equally notable was the number of bidders who placed bids for this auction through the Dallas auction house website throughout the event: nearly 4.
"Of the 1 lots offered for sale, not a single one has been unsold," said James Halperin, co-founder of Heritage Auctions. "This means we are bringing the right parts to market at the right time."
The auction kicked off with Frank Frazetta's painting The Princess of Mars (1970), one of the most identifiable and influential pieces in the artist's career, which sold Thursday for $ 1,2 million. It was a remarkable and exciting kick-off for Heritage Auctions' four-day Comics & Comic Art event.
The Princess of Frazetta was not alone in shattering pre-auction expectations during the first session of the event. The now iconic Lee Elias art adorning the cover of Chamber of Chills No. 19 (Harvey, 1953), published in 1953, sold for $ 174.000 after a fiery bidding round. Page 9 of Journey Into Mystery (Marvel, 1968) # 112 sold for $ 120, which isn't surprising given the artists involved (the legendary Jack Kirby and his longtime inker Chic Stone ) and characters (Hulk and Thor).
And John Buscema and George Klein's cover page for The Avengers (Marvel, 1968) # 58 sold for $ 90. This piece comes two years after Black Panther's debut in Jack Kirby's 000 Fantastic Four (Marvel) movie No.52, and marks T'Challa's second solo dive. Buscema's pose, that of the Panther stalking its prey, would define the character for decades to come, in comics and on screen, as portrayed by the late Chadwick Boseman, who was shot on August 1966 after a four-year battle with colon cancer.
Buyers also snatched up notable issues: A copy of Superman # 1 (DC, 1939), which sold for $ 348. Action Comics issue # 000 (DC, 7), which was the focus of the Federal Court case involving impersonator Wonder Man (Fox), sold for $ 1938. And a copy of The Incredible Hulk (Marvel, 204) # 000 rated CGC NM / MT 1974 made $ 181.
Sealed Pokémon box sells for $ 198, a world record
A rare sealed Pokémon booster set broke the series' world record on day one of the event, selling for $ 198. The Pokémon First Edition Sealed Base Set (Wizards of the Coast, 000) far exceeded its estimate of $ 1999 and more before the auction, even before the live auction began.
"Boxes like this, especially in such extraordinary condition and sealed in plastic wrap, have become undeniable rarities," said Jesus Garcia, assistant to the supervisor of comics and comics operations at Heritage Auctions. “The previous record of $ 78 set by Heritage Auctions was set in February 000. This result - more than double the previous rating - just shows that the popularity and demand for these cards shows no signs of slowing down. ".
First set ever, this booster comes from a very low print and includes 396 cards divided into 36 booster packs, each containing 11 cards. As the box is unopened, it is likely that most or all of the cards are in preserved condition.
Other strengths include, among others, the following:
- $ 120: the Q-Collection Comic Book Preservation Project, a unique bundle of over 000 items, the world's best comic book preservation project
- $ 102: Batman # 000 (DC, 1) CGC GD + 1940

"An incredible result for an incredible item! Thanks to everyone who bid."

Gandhi was known to give old or unwanted pairs to those in need or who had helped him.

The sale price crushed the initial estimate of around £ 15.
Auctioneer Andrew Stowe told Sky News earlier this month that the seller told him, "If they're not genuine, throw them out."
When he suggested they might be worth £ 15, "I think he almost fell out of his chair."

Who are the buyers of the French TV show Affaire Conclue?

Which are the buyers of the France 2 program Affaire Conclue ?

With Affaire conclue, Sophie Davant hosts part of the afternoons of France 2. The program, which has existed in France since 2017, is adapted from a German program created in 2013. The daily has been supplemented since 2019 by a Object hunting weekly broadcast on Sundays.

The concept is therefore well established on the public channel and is based on a simple principle. Sellers present objects to the show's experts (usually auctioneers). These evaluate the object and propose a price from which the seller chooses or not to go and present his object in the "auction room". It is then received by buyers who will increase the bids according to their interest in the object.

Buyers take center stage for much of the show. They sometimes pretend to quarrel but are most often very accomplices. Who are these buyers? What are their backgrounds? We tell you everything about the faces of the show Affaire conclue

The news of the Deal concluded on August 20, 2020 on France2: François-Xavier Renou

François-Xavier Renou is now replacing Pierre-Jean Chalençon, who was removed from the program in June 2020. François-Xavier, a very charismatic character, is an art dealer. He works for the Art market in Asia.

He was already noticed by his services as a crazy artist in various clips and stage presence. During the first show this summer for François-Xavier Renou, the other buyers did not resist strongly chambering him on the subject.

François-Xavier, also called Fransoa in Indonesia where he lives several months a year, participated in 2002 in the Koh Lanta program broadcast on TF1. He lived more than 30 days on Nicoya in Costa Rica.

The buyers highlight

At the launch of the show, the number of buyers who intervened were very small. Seven buyers took turns alongside Sophie Davant to argue over the viewers' items. But the success of the show changed this initial format. More and more buyers are making appearances on the France 2 set.

However, there is a limited number of iconic buyers of the program which form the basis of the auction house. These most recurrent speakers have become figures of the audiovisual landscape for some. They are even solicited for other shows. They are distinguished by their skills, their personality, their exuberance, their seriousness: it depends.

Julien Cohen

Julien Cohen deal concluded

With his colored glasses, his outspokenness and his charisma, Julien Cohen is one of the pillars of the show. Coming from a family of bargain hunters, he grew up in contact with old objects by browsing the auction rooms and flea markets. At the professional level, he began very young to found companies unrelated to the flea market. It was only later that he opened his first antique shop in Paris. The success met allows him to develop this activity and excel in it. He is thus spotted by the team of the show where he appears from the first episodes.

The shop of Julien Cohen in Paris: 138, Rue Des Rosiers. 93400 - Saint Ouen

Julien Cohen's shop in Brussels : 63 Blaes Street - 1000 Brussels

Pierre-Jean Chalençon

Distinguished by his blond hair and his exuberance, Pierre-Jean Chalençon presents himself as one of the greatest collectors of objects linked to Napoleon Bonaparte. It is distinguished by a great historical culture. He owns the Palais Vivienne, which is frequently referred to in the show. He is also a director of the Cercle France Napoléon. Pierre-Jean is therefore above all a passionate collector who has traveled the world with his own objects which have integrated high-profile exhibitions from the Pantheon in Paris to the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, passing through all the major art places. global. Another aspect of his career is less known: he was the secretary and confidant of singer Charles Trenet, of whom he wrote a biography published in 2005. Before Affaire conclue, he participated in a first show: Your items have a story in 2014.

At the end of June 2020, Pierre-Jean Chalençon announced his withdrawal from the flagship show of France 2 "Affaire concluded" after two setbacks, a selfie with Dieudonné at the birthday party of Jean-Marie Le Pen posted on social networks by Internet users, and unscrupulous messages sent to Line Renaud on Twitter.

Anne-Catherine Verwaerde

On the woman's side, one of the program's most prominent buyers is also blonde: Anne-Catherine Verwaerde! She has an original professional background which first led her to be a marketing director for major brands following her business studies.

Many other buyers occasionally come to complete the fine team of the auction house ofAffaire conclue. This is the case for example François Cases Bardina who is a renowned cabinetmaker.

Michael Jordan sells personal Air Jordan I and baseball glove

Updated 14/08/20 Once again, this pair of sneakers is breaking records. The pair of Air Jordan 1s sold at auction for $ 615, Christie's said. These sneakers are fast becoming the most expensive in history. The sale took place just three months after setting a first record for an identical model. Red and white, with the Nike comma, called the black swoosh of the famous Air Jordan 000 Chicago, the pair were worn during a friendly meeting on August 1, 25 in Trieste, Italy. Michael Jordan was then on a promotional tour for Nike. The player had donned the jersey of Stefanel Trieste, one of the Italian first division teams, to play the match against Juve Caserta. The match is best known for a precise gesture, where the American fullback flew at the end of the counterattack to soak the ball, causing a shock that shattered the plexiglass. According to Christie's, the left shoe had a piece of it in its sole. The house initially estimated it at between $ 1985 and $ 650 when it went on sale online on July 000.

DALLAS, Texas (June 8, 2020) - On sale at Heritage Auctions' Sunday June 14 weekly online auction: a Nike Air Jordan I from Michael Jordan's personal collection, as well as a black Wilson baseball glove bearing its owner's nickname ( "MICHAEL JORDAN", hard to miss) sewn on the thumb.

Nowadays, in the wake of the documentary Last Dance that captivated a nation currently hungry for sports and heroes and iconic moments, these signifiers should be enough to spark the interest of collectors and casual viewers. When beginner cards, sneakers, and ticket stubs hit all-time highs at auctions week after week, items that once belonged to or were worn or touched by The Greatest of All Time immediately attract attention. attention of collectors and fans when they are auctioned. Especially when it appears to be the very first Jordanian baseball glove ever released. But there is a story to these objects - this very precious sneaker, this extraordinarily rare glove - which transforms them from being a precious souvenir to that of an important treasure. And it all starts in 1994, when Jordan's then wife Juanita couldn't decide what to buy from the man who had it all for his 32nd birthday. For advice, she turned to a high-end jeweler she knew, who suggested that she reproduce some of her most iconic "precious metal" objects, as the Israeli newspaper Haaretz recently reported. The jeweler knew a man in Tel Aviv who could do such a thing, taking items and making detailed molds from the originals. “One day we received an order by fax to make a silver baseball shoe and glove,” Dan Lavi told the Israeli newspaper a few weeks ago. "They didn't say who it was for. My father asked them to send a sample, saying he would see what could be done. If it was possible we would give a price, he told the shipper. " A few days later, a 1985 Air Jordan I - right footed, size 13,5 - and the Wilson glove were shipped to Israel. To create the molds and ensure that the original items kept their shapes, the glove was filled with permanent epoxy, while a material like plasticine, which could be removed, was inserted into the shoe. On the other side, silver replicas have appeared, so perfect in their detail, from the grain of the leather to the patterns of the laces, that they seem almost wearable - weren't they so heavy (the shoe alone weighs 10 pounds ) or sheathed in thousands of dollars of silver. Only ten of these shoes were made, as requested by Juanita Jordan. After that, the mussels were destroyed. Only these objects, the original sneaker and glove, have remained. Michael Jordan kept a silver shoe and glove. The story goes that he distributed the other pieces to his agent, one of his restaurants, a golf club, the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago and elsewhere. Over time, they dispersed in the wind. They cost around $ 2 each, and when they are auctioned, which is rare, they are sold for significantly higher prices. In February 2019, Heritage Auctions sold one of the silver gloves for $ 7. Six months later, Heritage sold one of the silver sneakers for $ 20. And that was long before Jordan won a victory lap and a final dance. It was only after the documentary aired on ESPN that Lavi set out to search - at his mother's request - for the shoe and glove that served as models for these silver molds. His discovery made headlines in Israeli newspapers. Today they go to a Dallas auction house. And in a few days, they'll be someone else's property - 26 years after being taken from Michael Jordan's closet and reproduced to the last silver point. “It was very exciting to hear the family in Israel who created the incredible silver sculptures and to learn that the original objects that were used to create the molds still exist,” said Chris Ivy, auction manager. sports cars from Heritage Auctions. "Like most people around the world, the owner was captivated by The Last Dance and decided it was time to part with the treasures his father gave him a quarter of a century ago." The Air Jordan sneaker and Wilson glove were used to make silver replicas - each now, without a doubt, is worth its weight in gold.

Myths of art debunked

Presumption: Art ends up being more valuable once an artist dies.

Truth: Prices only go up when the need is greater than the supply. Costs can increase if the artist's work was insufficient before his death and if the need continues to be significantly greater than the supply. Art News (November 2003) featured a short article on the ten most sought-after works of art. If the current owners let me go, they would sell separately for over $ 5 million. However, since collectors understand that they might not acquire a replacement painting / sculpture / drawing, they will not sell these works of art.

Assumption: An artist proof is better than a proof of the original edition.

Reality: Artist proofs regularly conform to the Reference Edition in terms of appearance and value. In exceptional cases, a color proof may be considered more valuable than the reference edition or an artist proof. This happens when the specialists in charge of the dossier consider that the color proof represents a more beautiful object than the reference edition or the artist's proof.

Hypothesis: This is only a test.

Their art "translates" more successfully using an original printing medium such as lithography, engraving, screen printing or woodcuts. The only time an art expert can say "This is just a print" is when referring to a reproduction print.

Why can't you value my art from pictures?

- Responsibility
- As long as I am a professional art appraiser, I am held to a different requirement than someone working strictly as a dealer.
- PLUS, I like to be the best !!!

Photographs do not reveal all condition problems and the general public is not trained to describe them properly. How many of you can recognize light spots, carpet burns, foxes, etc. These and other defects in condition have a dramatic effect on the value.

- A reconstruction fixed on a canvas looks almost like a first oil painting on a photo. Unless I know which museum currently houses the actual painting, I cannot be totally sure whether you are revealing to me a photographically produced reproduction or an actual painting when looking at a photo. Now that there are giclee prints on canvas and enhanced with paint, a hands-on exam is a must.

The Reality: Artist proofs consistently conform to the Reference Edition in terms of appearance and value. Rarely does a color trial proof be deemed more important than the reference edition or artist proof. Their art "evens out" best by using an initial printing medium such as lithography, printmaking, screen printing or woodcuts. The only time an art professional can say "This is just a print" is when referring to a reproduction print.
