NEW YORK, NY.- Shapiro Auctions sale of International Fine and Decorative Art brought a total of $3,189,426 against a pre-sale estimate of $3,855,900-5,107,180 representing 83% sell through rate by value. Bidders from 41 countries across 5 continents were competing in the room, on the telephone and online for works across several categories including particularly strong selections of Russian, European and American paintings and works of art.

Gene Shapiro, President and Founder of Shapiro Auctions, New York: “Today’s sale of International Fine and Decorative Art saw notable demand for highly collectible works by the masters of late 19th and 20th century art, led by Marc Chagall’s wonderful ‘Le Bouquet d’Amours’. We are delighted that our auction once again attracted global participation from bidders around the world, further evidencing the deep international demand across categories that we include in our sales. This resulted in strong prices across offerings in the sale from Impressionist masters - illustrated by the rare 1892 work by Leon Augustin L’Hermitte - to the energy of the late work by the contemporary Russian artist, Victor Khromin. Our continued approach of offering sale of International Fine and Decorative Art collectively presents new and established buyers with opportunities across price levels and across categories.”

The sale was led by Le Bouquet d’Amour, by Marc Chagall which sold, for $785,000/€700,861/£518,160 (estimate: $650,000-800,000). Offered from a Private American Collection the painting is quintessentially Chagall containing many highly recognizable and beloved themes that inhabited Chagall’s work.
