Love You Always (2014)
Hirst’s Love You Always (2014) is a romantic and macabre expression of life and death, with real butterflies permanently enshrined in a deep magenta heart. A true scientist of art, Hirst is known to craft meticulous pieces that consistently outsell their high estimates at auction.
Terrestrial Accidents of the Supernatural (2000)
Terrestrial Accidents of the Supernatural (2000) by Rita Ackermann is a high-value work by an increasingly sought-after artist. Ackermann is a contemporary Hungarian-born American artist, best known for her abstract, bodily works that address issues of anthropomorphism and femininity. Terrestrial Accidents of the Supernatural is a prime work in Ackermann’s oeuvre, situated firmly between representation and abstraction.
Naturaleza Muerta con Pez (Still Life with Fish) (1945)
Amelia Peláez was the first and only female artist to gain prominence as part of Cuba’s Vanguardia generation, and her painting Naturaleza Muerta con Pez (Still Life with Fish) (1945) speaks to Cuba’s identity as an island nation. Peláez was the only female artist included in the Museum of Modern Art’s 1944 exhibition “Modern Cuban Painters.”
Finally, Anish Kapoor’s wall mounted dish, Untitled (2011) is a prime example of the ways in which the artist alters a viewers sense of sight, sound, space, and orientation. Works of this one’s caliber often sell for over $! million, making a $600,000—800,000 estimate exceptional for a work of this quality.
