LOS ANGELES, CA.- The May 1 sale of Prints and Multiples achieved US$1,567,938 and the top lot of the sale was Keith Haring’s Growing #2, from Growing Suite, which realized $102,500, a world auction record for a proof from the Growing Suite. The work had been estimated at $20,000- 30,000.

Morisa Rosenberg, Director Prints & Multiples, Los Angeles, commented: “The results of the auction were strong, sold 94% by value and 87% by lot, demonstrating the continuing demand for prints. The sale drew international interest and we saw competitive bidding for works ranging from Old Master to Contemporary Art. The iconic and rare “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” by Albrecht Durer realized an impressive $95,000, which came from a private collection in Los Angeles bought in the 1970’s and Keith Haring’s unique color trial proof achieved $102,500, a world auction record for a print from the Growing Suite.”
