On Saturday, June 24, contemporary art particularly shone on the occasion of the sale of Paintings in the house Marc Labarbe.
The dynamism of acrylic on canvas realized by Hans HARTUNG (1904-1989), after a bidding contest between 12 people essentially bidding by phone, reached the sum of 44 600 euros. Its green, yellow and orange hatches painted in a very meticulous organization seem to be confused with the background of the painting: we do not know if it is these features that mix with the background or the background that finally invites itself on lines.
Oil on canvas Georges MATHIEU (1921 - 2012) testimony if it takes its typical "calligraphic" in black on a greige background, has also attracted many art lovers. No less than seven people followed the auctions by phone, and the live was not left behind. It is also a user who made the highest bid, taking this table to 26,300 euros.
