Fine Art Auction
November 6, 2016
Our November Live Auction was a success as we sold 86% of the 271 lots offered at an average of 40% over the low end of the estimate. Even though it was an unseasonably warm day in Calgary the room was full and the bidding was energetic.
Some notable highlights were Cafe by Maxwell Bates with a hammer price of $45,630 [including 17% buyer's premium] against an estimate of $15,000/20,000; The Land 5/75 by Takao Tanabe sold for $24,570 against an estimate of $5000/7000, Jack Pine #62/100 by Walter Phillips sold for $8,775 against an estimate of $3000/3500, Peaks by Bertram Brooker sold for $6,435 against an estimate of $1000/1200 and Group of Barns by Charles Comfort which sold for $7,020 against an estimate of $2000/2500.
Thank you to all of our consignors and bidders alike.
