Lot 23, "Violon et guitare," by Juan Gris, oil on canvas, 39 1/2 by 25  3/4 inches, 1913

"Violon et guitare," Lot 23, is a 1913 oil on canvas by Juan Gris (1887-1927)that measures 39 1/2 by 25 3/4 inches.  It has been widely exhibited and published and was once in the collection of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph F. Colin of New York.

The catalogue provides the following commentary:

"When Juan Gris returned to Paris in early November 1913 from his three-month sojourn in Cèret, he had good reason to be pleased with the pictures he had painted there.  He completed thirteen canvases in a consistently focused and formally cohesive series of still-lifes, figures and landscapes, paintings which constituted the most assured, fully fledged and distinctively personal work he had done to date....Indeed, among these pictures are several that would eventuallyh be counted among the very best he ever painted, indisputable masterworks that demonstrate an astonishing and dazzling synthesis of diea, color and form.  Violon et guitare was Grisi own favorite among these Cèret paintings.....This painting has since come to be widely regarded as a peak in his magnificent oeuvre, and one of the milestones of cubism and early modernism."

The lot has an estimate of $18 million to $25 million.  It sold for $28,642,500 including the buyer's premium as do all results mentioned in this article.  It was a world's auction record for a Gris painting.  It is one of four consecutive lots in the auction that come from "distinguished private collection" and are labeled "Four Modern Masterpieces."  In her November 4, 2010 article in The New York Times, Carol Vogel wrote that the Gris and three other works in the auction that the catalogue said were "modern masterpieces" were consigned by Henry Kravis and his wife, Marie-Josée, president of the Museum of Modern Art, "other collectors and art dealers familiar with the Kravises' art were able to identify them as the sellers."

Abstraction by Klee


Lot 24, "Pfanze und Fenster Stilleben," by Paul Klee, oil on canvas, 18 3/4 by 23 inches, 1927


The second "masterpiece" is Lot 24 is a strong abstraction by Paul Klee (1879-1940) entitled "Pfanze und Fenster Stilleben."  An oil on canvas, it measures 18 3/4 by 23 inches and was painted in 1927.  It has an estimate of $3,000,000 to $4,000,000.  It has been widely exhibited and published.  It sold for $5,010,500.

Abstraction by Miro

Lot 25, "L'Air," by Joan Miró, oil on canvas, 21 3/8 by 18 1/8 inches, 1938

The third "masterpiece is Lot 25, "L'Air," by Joan Miró (1893-1983).  An oil on canvas, it measures 21 3/8 by 18 1/8 inches and was painted in 1938.  It has an estimate of $12,000,000 to $18,000,000.  It sold for $10,330,500. The catalogue notes that "In his works of the late 1930s, Miró employed the ingenious iconogaphy of organic and figural signs, which he had begun to developing in his early surrealist work, to address the dire political events of the day - violence in the streets, the horror of internecine bloodletting, the spreading web ot totalitarian subjugation and oppression, and the personal tribulations that each and every Spaniard, whichever side they took, was forced to endure. The struggles that Miró depicted in his paintings often took the appearance of a helter-skelter psycho-sexual narrative, drawn from a mythic dimension sunk deep within the human subconscious."

The catalogue entry also notes that 'the artist's title suggests the joyous freedom of flight, a miraculous buoyancy that has lifted these creatures far above the events and cares of the world below.  There is , however an ominous subtext that informs these strange occurences.  The time is 1938; Miró painted L'Air under the widening specter of civil war in Spain.  Ranging across the yellow landscape is a sliterhing red serpent, who se mustachioed visage is perhaps a cariacature of General Francisco Franco, El Caudillo, the leader of the facist uprising that has torn Spain apart."


Picasso head

Lot 26, "Tete d'homme," by Pablo Picasso, pastel on paper, 27 1/8 by 21 1/8 inches, 1921

The fourth "masterpiece" is Lot 26, "Tete d'homme," by Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), a pastel on paper that was executed in 1921 and measures 27 1/8 by 21 1/8 inches.  It has an estimate of $5,000,000 to $7,000,000.  It sold for $6,130,500.

The catalogue notes that while in Fontainebleau, Picasso in 1921 painted a series of massive, neoclassical female figures and a dozen pastels of heads and busts: "Given the powdery texture and subtle tints of this delicate medium, these images are softer, more refined and sensual in their aspect, and it is perahps not since Picasso's Blue and Rose periods that Picasso drew the human visage with such exquisite sensitivity and charm, even while rendering these images on fairly large sheets of paper, with the heads appearing substantially larger than life-size."

It said that this work "has the distinction of being the only male subject among these hauntingly introspective figures," adding that it "marks Picasso's ongoing quest to define his own position among ancient and modern masters, as welll as his broader meditation on enduring cultural values in the period following the First World War."

The auction's total was $231.4 million as 67 of the 84 offered lots sold.  The pre-sale estimate was $199 million to $287 million.

"Balustre et crane (recto)" by Braque

Lot 44, "Balustre et crâne," (recto); Nature More au compotier (verso)," by Georges Braque, oil on canvas, 17 3/4 by 21 5/8 inches, 1938

"Une Liseuse de Romans" by Van Gogh

"Will-o'-the-Wisp" by Klimt

Lot 77, "Irrilichter (Will-o'-the-Wisp)," by Gustav Klimt, oil on board laid down on canvas, 20 1/2 by 23 1/2 inches, 1903

The catalogue provides the following commentary:

"One of a group of striking and revolutionary symbolist paintings from Klimt's celebrated 'gold and silver' period, Irrilichter (Will-o'-the-Wisp) is a rare and important work by 1903 that  remained hidden for most of the twentieth century.  The painting emerged from a private collection in 1978, having been previously known only thgough a prhotograph showing it at the Secession exhibition of the same year...where it had hung alongside Klimt's other major works from the period...These magnificent paintings, among which Irrilichter was installed, are among the most important of Klimt's oeuvre, and were tragically destroyed in 1945.  For decades, it was thought that Irrilichter had suffered the same fate.  The subject matter of the present painting links it  to Kilimt's famous friezes for the faculty hall of the new University of Vienna dedicated to the subjects of Philosophy, Medicine, Jurisprudence and Technology.  Klimt caused a public scandal by using nude women as a pictorial means of conveying the abstract concepts he had been asked to portray.....The notion of seductive and mischievous spirits leading one astray through a magical sparkling light that appears at twilight was...one that lent itself easily to the mystic symbolism of his art and his love of siren-like women materealizing out of the ether."

"Nu de dos, 4 etat (Back IV)" by Matisse

Segalot and F. Giraud, "The Impossible Collection: The 100 Most Coveted Artworks in the Modern Era."

The catalogue notes that his belongs to a series of four similar bronze sculptures that represent "Matisse's most monumental and ambitious sculptural undertakig and the longest-lived  single project of his career."  "This imposing set of relief, executed at widely spaced intervals between 1908 and 1931, has been lauded as 'one of the artist's most distinctive achievements.'....The present work is one of twelve bronze casts of this culminating relief, and oe of only two exaples that currently remain in private hands."

The Museum of Modern Art in New York has a complete set of the reliefs.

The catalogue provides the following commentary:

"The 'oneric' paintings foreshadowed later developments in modern painting, and they strongly influenced the color-field painters working America during the late 1940s and 1950s, including William Baziotes, Helen Frankenthaler, Adolph Gottlieb, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still.  The minimalist aspect of these dream works remains persuasive and perennially fresh today, while the bold yet ambiguous simplicity of Miró's mysterious imagery continues to intrigue viewers, in many cases having yielded up little of their teasingly enigmatic meaning over the years."
