Artprice : Le « Caravage de Toulouse » se dérobe à sa propre vente aux enchères publiques

2019/06/26 Commentaires fermés

La vente publique était prévue ce jeudi 27 juin à 18h00, heure de Toulouse. En vertu des Conditions de vente, toute personne intéressée avait dû « impérativement s’enregistrer en tant qu’enchérisseur au moins 15 jours avant la vente ». thierry Ehrmann explique que cela signifie très concrètement que, depuis le 13 juin au moins, tous les enchérisseurs étaient connus des vendeurs. Il ne restait plus au tableau qu’à aller au plus offrant. Alea jacta est.

Mais coup de théâtre 48h avant la vente publique : tout est annulé. Une transaction de gré à gré a finalement été conclue. « Une offre qu’il était impossible de ne pas transmettre aux propriétaires du tableau » dit le communiqué officiel. Celui-ci fournit une explication des plus concises : « le fait que cette offre provienne d’un collectionneur proche d’un grand musée a convaincu les vendeurs de l’accepter ».

Pour les vendeurs, pour l’expert Eric Turquin et pour le commissaire-priseur Marc Labarbe, il s’agit vraisemblablement d’une fin des plus heureuses. La montant – non révélé – prouverait qu’il s’agit bel et bien d’un Caravage, et l’acheteur – anonyme mais suffisament proche des plus grands musées – s’engagerait à ce que le tableau soit très prochainement exposé dans l’une des plus belles institutions de la planète.

Il peut toutefois s’agir de n’importe quel musée au monde, sauf du Louvre, qui avait tourné le dos à ce tableau. « Une attitude qui, pour moi, a été difficile à vivre » a confié Eric Turquin au magazine Le Point. En effet, le communiqué officiel précise : « Acheté par un collectionneur étranger, [le tableau] va quitter le sol français ». Sa destination était certainement la deuxième grande préoccupation des vendeurs, après son prix de vente évidemment… Sans quoi un accord aurait certainement été directement trouvé avec un grand musée.

Du point de vue des vendeurs, l’opération est une réussite sur toute la ligne. En terme de transparence, c’est un retournement de situation complet et singulier. Les vendeurs promettaient une vente aux enchères « authentique », une vente 100 % publique, sans prix de réserve et retransmise en directe sur internet pour permettre à chacun d’assister à l’adjudication. Le prix final devait permettre au Marché de se prononcer sur l’authenticité du tableau. Seulement le rideau est tombé avant même qu’il se soit levé et le montant de la transaction restera à jamais confidentiel.

Lundi dernier, le 17 juin, la société Sotheby’s a annoncé qu’elle sortait du marché public. Une semaine plus tard, c’est l’oeuvre la plus attendue de l’année qui se soustrait brusquement à une vente aux enchères publiques. Dans un cas comme dans l’autre, Artprice observe que le Marché de l’Art est à la recherche de discrétion.
Dans le catalogue de vente, Eric Turquin remerciait justement celle de ses collaborateurs : « merci aux confrères experts, restaurateurs, marchands de cadres, banquiers, assureurs, photographes, transporteurs, etc. qui ont scrupuleusement respecté le secret professionnel et nous ont permis de travailler sereinement ».

Au terme de cinq années de travail, de recherches et de détermination, « ce tableau va aller dans l’un des plus beaux musées du monde. Et ça pour moi c’était essentiel », conclut Eric Turquin.

De par l’importance de cette œuvre au regard de l’histoire de l’art, Artprice promet de suivre au plus près la réapparition de cette peinture – qui ne peut sans doute plus totalement être appelée le « Caravage de Toulouse » – et de faire autant que possible la lumière sur cette vente de gré à gré, conclue quelques heures seulement avant une vente aux enchères qui s’annonçait historique. Plus que jamais, le travail d’Artprice pour amener la transparence sur le Marché de l’Art se justifie.

Artprice:2019 年上半年卡拉瓦乔、莫奈、培根和巴斯奇亚杰作将竞相亮相拍卖行

2019/06/15 Commentaires fermés

今年年初以来,美国艺术市场迎来开门红,为各位主角注入定心剂,即将上场的是理查德·普林斯的大麻品牌新作品系列 Katz + Dogg,与此同时,其个展 High Times 也将亮相旧金山高古轩。

而此时,欧洲市场正筹办今年第一期盛大的“压轴戏”,包括巴黎的大型拍卖会、第 50 届巴塞尔艺术展以及伦敦暑期前的最后一场大型拍卖会。但是,这场“压轴戏”的大新闻可能来自法国南部。

Artprice 创始人兼首席执行官 Thierry Ehrmann 高兴之情溢于言表:2019 年第一期可能会伴随法国艺术市场的革命而落下帷幕。这一次,是法国首创。一件非凡大作在远离主要首都且在非大型拍卖行的场地进行拍卖,而且没有底价!卡拉瓦乔的画作备受追捧,历史辉煌,无需任何保证!

[https://imgpublic.artprice.com/img/wp/sites/11/2019/06/caravaggio-mm.jpg]

Toulouse Caravaggio1.15 亿 – 1.7 亿美元

这自然成为了一年中最盛大的活动:在获得了法国政府的“释放”之后,卡拉瓦乔的一件名作将于 2019 6 27 日星期四在图卢兹拍卖。五年前,这幅画作便是在图卢兹的一间阁楼上被偶然发现。获得出口签证以来,Judith and Holofernes 画作先后已在伦敦科尔纳吉画廊 (Colnaghi gallery)、巴黎 Kamel Mennour 画廊和纽约 Adam Williams 画廊等地展出。

当然,卡拉瓦乔的任何作品进入拍卖市场本身就是一个大新闻。最后一次拍卖可追溯至 1971 年,当时他的画作Martha and Mary Magdalene在伦敦佳士得拍卖行流拍,引发疑云一片。1973 年,底特律艺术学院购得这幅画后,普遍认可这件作品为真品,如今这幅画作被视为卡拉瓦乔无可争辩的杰作。

图卢兹的这幅画作同样令人印象深刻,也是 DIA 美术馆的珍宝:或早或晚,这幅作品将会被全球最大的博物馆之一收购。艺术专家 Eric Turquin 警告称:“这是他们获得卡拉瓦乔作品的唯一机会。下一件作品的面世可能需要 40 50 而且重要性可能不及这件。

图卢兹重新发现了 Judith and Holofernes 之后,这幅画作得到了许多知名专家的支持,包括美国策展人 Keith Christiansen (MET)、法国策展人 Guillaume Kientz (Louvre) 和意大利博物馆馆长 Nicola Spinosa (Capodimonte) 等。现在交由多位学者,以确定这幅画作在艺术史上的地位。特拉华大学的 David Stone 认为,这幅画展示了卡拉瓦乔到达那不勒斯后创作的一种新技巧。这种技巧包括在画布上使用一种基色,即“基底”(Imprimatura),用于增强作品感染力,为画作注入生机。

迄今为止,68 幅已知的卡拉瓦乔画作均收藏于欧洲和美国的全球最负盛名的收藏品、博物馆和教堂中。Thierry Ehrmann 说道:“在中东或亚洲的任何地方都找不到一幅。然而,2016 年的卡拉瓦乔东京展却取得了巨大的成功。”

莫奈的Water-Lilies3200 – 4400 万美元

今年到目前为止,克劳德·莫奈是全球拍卖市场上作品最畅销的艺术家,他的 17 幅作品总价超过了 2 亿美元。

今年开局不利,228日他的Weeping Willow and Water-Lily pond(1916-19) 在伦敦佳士得流拍。最高报价是 5500 万美元(含佣金),低于卖方的最低价格要求。但本次流拍对于莫奈市场而言并非坏处,反而促进了供需之间的健康平衡。2019 年上半年推出的 20 幅莫奈作品中,成交率高达 80% 以上。

显然,对莫奈作品的需求依然高涨。2019 5 14 日,他的一幅Haystacks画作 (1890) 在纽约苏富比上拍,估价较低,为 5500 万美元。最后这幅画作成交价高达 1.105 亿美元,创下了新的印象派艺术品世界纪录。从 1986 年的 250 万美元(佳士得)到现在,价值的提升不言自明。

2019 6 19 日,苏富比将在伦敦拍卖另一幅从未公开出售的Water-Lilies (1908) 画作。

弗朗西斯·培根自画像:1900 – 2500 万美元

伦敦不再是弗朗西斯·培根作品的主要市场:这位艺术家最高拍卖价的前三件作品均在纽约拍出。2017 年,培根的 Study of Red Pope 1962 在佳士得伦敦拍卖行流拍。2nd Version 1971 估价为 1.3 亿美元。

然而,2019 6 26 日,培根的Self-Portrait (1975) 将在苏富比的伦敦新邦德街分店拍卖。2015 年,英镑走强时,这家著名拍卖行以 2400 万美元的价格将这幅作品拍出。四年后,在英国脱欧的背景下,苏富比希望拍卖结果依然出色。

巴斯奇亚:950 – 1400 万美元

今年到目前为止,重大市场新闻中一直没有出现让·米歇尔·巴斯奇亚的身影。他目前在 Artprice 的临时成交额排行榜上排名第 22 位。经过了二级市场两年的火爆行情后,随着收藏家们的出售开始缩紧,他的画作变得越发稀有。今年到目前为止,他的作品中只有一幅突破了千万美元大关当时是五月,当然,是在纽约。这位纽约涂鸦艺术家第二幅油画杰作 Sabado por la Noche (1984) 将于 6 25 日在伦敦佳士得拍出。

如今,博物馆行业在全球艺术市场占据的分量愈加重要,而巴斯奇亚是同时受到知名博物馆和全球最具影响力的收藏家热捧的艺术家之一。许多人对他作品的价格飞涨表示惊讶。2017 5 月,现任纽约现代艺术博物馆绘画和雕塑部首席策展人 Ann Temkin 在接受《纽约时报》采访时表示,他对博物馆未能及时收购让·米歇尔·巴斯奇亚的作品表示非常遗憾。

正如 Thierry Ehrmann 常说的一句话:你必须在天时、地利、人合的机缘下,购买对的作品

Artprice: a masterpiece by Caravaggio, a Monet, a Bacon and a small Basquiat to close out H1 2019

Artprice: a masterpiece by Caravaggio, a Monet, a Bacon and a small Basquiat to close out H1 2019

Since the beginning of the year the American art market has reassured all of its protagonists, and is now testing Richard Prince’s new range of cannabis products, Katz + Dogg, launched concurrently with the opening of his show High Times at the San Francisco Gagosian.

Meanwhile, the European market is reaching for a grand ‘finale’ to the year’s first semester with major sales in Paris, the 50th edition of Art Basel and London’s last major sales before the summer break. But… the big news in this ‘finale’ may well come from the South of France.

Thierry Ehrmann, Artprice’s founder/CEO is delighted: The first semester of 2019 could end with a kind of revolution on the French Art market. And for once… it’s a French initiative. An extraordinary masterpiece is being auctioned far from the major capitals… far from the major auction houses… and with no reserve price! The Caravaggio painting is so powerful and has such an extraordinary history, it doesn’t need any guarantees!

The Toulouse Caravaggio: $115 million – $170 million

Quite simply the most spectacular event of the year: after its ‘release’ by the French state, a Caravaggio masterpiece will be offered for sale on Thursday 27 June 2019 in Toulouse where the painting was found, by chance, in an attic five years ago. Since receiving its export visa, the Judith and Holofernes painting has been exhibited at the Colnaghi gallery in London, at kamel mennour in Paris and at Adam Williams in New York.

Of course, the arrival of any work by Caravaggio on the auction market is an event in its own right. The last one dates back to 1971 when his painting Martha and Mary Magdalene – in a cloud of attribution doubts at the time – failed to sell at Christie’s in London. After the Detroit Institute of Art acquired it in 1973, the authenticity of the work was universally recognised and the painting is today considered an undisputed Caravaggio masterpiece.

The Toulouse painting is every bit as impressive and the DIA’s jewel: sooner or later, the work will be acquired by one of the world’s major museums. “It represents the only opportunity they will ever get to acquire a Caravaggio” warns art expert Eric Turquin. “It could be 40 or 50 years before another work is found” … and it probably won’t be nearly as as important as this one.

Since its rediscovery the Toulouse Judith and Holofernes has received support from a number of eminent specialists including the American curator Keith Christiansen (MET), the French curator Guillaume Kientz (Louvre) and the Italian Museum Director, Nicola Spinosa (Capodimonte). It is now up to academics to determine the place of this painting in Art History. David Stone from the University of Delaware believes the painting illustrates the invention of a new technique that Caravaggio developed after his arrival in Naples. The technique consists of using a base colour on the canvas, known as an imprimatura, to enhance the work and bring it to life.

To date, the sixty-eight known Caravaggio paintings are all kept in the world’s most prestigious collections, museums and churches in Europe and the United States. “There isn’t a single one in the Middle East or anywhere in Asia” says thierry Ehrmann. “And yet the 2016 Caravaggio exhibition in Tokyo was a huge success.”

A Monet Water-Lilies: $32 million – $44 million

So far this year, Claude Monet is the world’s best selling artist on the global auction market with 17 works having already generated over $200 million.

The year started badly when his Weeping Willow and Water-Lily pond (1916-19) failed to sell at Christie’s in London on 28 February. The best offer of $55 million (including fees) was below the seller’s minimum price pretension. However, far from being harmful to his market, that failure contributed to a healthy balance between supply and demand. Of the twenty Monet works put on sale during H1 2019, more than 80% were sold.

There is clearly no lack of demand for Monet’s work. On 14 May 2019, one of his Haystacks paintings (1890) was offered at Sotheby’s New York with a low estimate of $55 million. The painting sold for $110.5 million, setting a new world record for an Impressionist artwork. The value accretion, from $2.5 million in 1986 (Christie’s), speaks for itself.

On 19 June 2019 in London, Sotheby’s will be offering another Water-Lilies (1908) painting that has never previously been sold publicly.

A Francis Bacon self-portrait: $19 million – $25 million

London is no longer the primary market place for Francis Bacon’s works: the best three auction results for this artist have all been hammered in New York. In 2017, Christie’s London failed to sell his Study of Red Pope 1962. 2nd Version 1971 against an estimate of $130 million.

Nevertheless, on 26 June 2019, Bacon’s Self-Portrait (1975) will be offered for sale at Sotheby’s London branch on New Bond Street. In 2015, when the pound sterling was strong, the prestigious auction house sold it for $24 million. Four years later, against the backdrop of Brexit, Sotheby’s is hoping for a similar result.

A small Basquiat: $9.5 million – $14 million

So far this year, Jean-Michel Basquiat is an absentee from major market news. He currently ranks 22nd in Artprice’s temporary turnover ranking. After two explosive years on the secondary market, his paintings are becoming increasingly rare as collectors begin to restrict their offer. Only one of his works has crossed the $10 million threshold so far this year… and that was in May, in New York, of course. A second good quality canvas by the New York graffiti artist, entitled Sabado por la Noche (1984), is coming up for auction on 25 June at Christie’s in London.

Today, more than ever, the Museum Industry plays a massive role in the global art market and Basquiat is one of those artists who is in demand from prestigious museums and from the world’s most powerful collectors at the same time. Many people were surprised by the rapid growth in the prices of his works. In an interview with the New York Times in May 2017, Ann Temkin, head curator of the MoMA’s painting and sculpture department, regretted that the museum had not acquired Jean-Michel Basquiat’s works in time.

As thierry Ehrmann has often said: You have to buy the right work with the right story, by the right artist at the right time…

Artprice (from London): The « Toulouse Caravaggio” on show in London

2019/03/01 Commentaires fermés

If I could have chosen to discover just one work among all those that have been lost in history… I would have chosen this one, without hesitation”. Such is the conviction and fascination of art expert Eric Turquin for the painting known as the “Toulouse Caravaggio” he has been entrusted to sell by auctioneer Marc Labarbe.

thierry Ehrmann: “After five years of research, analysis and polemics, the two men have announced that the owners are happy to let the Art Market decide the value of this exceptional and extraordinarily powerful work for which the French State has finally granted an export visa”.

Judith and Holofernes (c.1604 – 1605)

<VIDEO>
[http://serveur.serveur.com/Press_Release/video/caravage-london.mov]

This Thursday 28 February at the Colnaghi Gallery in London, against the backdrop of London first prestige sales of the year, Eric Turquin and Marc Labarbe confirmed at a press conference that the Judith and Holofernes painting will be auctioned on 27 June 2019.

However the location of its sale is the biggest surprise… not London, not New York, not even in Paris… but rather where it all began… in the south-west of France where it was found, by chance, in the attic of a house near Toulouse, in 2014. Moreover, the painting’s owners have re-confirmed that the Toulouse auctioneer they originally contacted – Marc Labarbe, who first recognized the exceptional qualities of the work – will be responsible for orchestrating the sale of this extraordinary painting.

The stakes are high indeednot only for all art lovers around the world who enjoy a good story and the thrill of market surprises, but also and particularly for the French Art Market. Thirty years after the historic Parisian sale of Pablo Picasso’s Noces de Pierrette (1905), an auction organized on French soil could once again rock the global Art Market.

A museum-quality work

As revealed by Artprice in January, the sellers have opted for an extremely original sales strategy via which they hope to elicit the kind of interest required to sell such a masterpiece.

The work is indeed exceptional in many respects. Its subject (a biblical decapitation), its age (more than 400 years old), its discovery (in an attic in the South of France) and especially its attribution to Caravaggio and the piercing power of Judith’s look, all give this painting a very special place in History and on the Art Market.

Only 68 works by Caravaggio are known to date, scattered throughout the Western world. Many have remained in Italy, hanging in the most beautiful churches of Rome, Naples and Sicily, while the others contribute to the notoriety of some of the world’s most prestigious European and American institutions: London’s National Gallery, New York’s Metropolitan Museum and the Paris Louvre each have three, while Madrid’s Prado and Saint Petersburg’s Hermitage each have a single painting by Caravaggio.

Acquiring this latest discovery probably appeals to all of the world’s major museums. However, few of them can afford it. The current estimate for the work is somewhere between between €100 and €150 million; but, the annual acquisition budget of the Louvre Museum (the world’s leading museum by visitor number) is still under €20 million. Likewise, lots of Japanese, English and Russian museums – who would love to own this newly discovered masterpiece – are unlikely to be in the running to acquire it.

Unless a State decides to make an exceptional grant, public museums will have to give way to major private collectors. In recent years Western, Asian and Middle Eastern billionaires have snapped up all the best works auctioned. Their immense financial power seems limitless when it comes to investing in the last remaining jewels of Art History in circulation.

To date, only fifteen works have publicly sold above the $100 million threshold. All of these were hammered in the three major capitals of the Art Market, organised by the three most powerful auction houses on the planet. However, today, with globalisation having so radically changed the global art market, this operating system could well be completely obsolete.

Having remained locked up Eric Turquin’s Paris offices for many years, the Toulouse Caravaggio has finally received its export visa and has began a world tour. Currently in London, the work will then be taken to New York to steal the spotlight during the prestige sales in May, before returning to Toulouse to be put on sale.

According to Artprice’s CEO / Founder, thierry Ehrmann, “when everyone has seen Judith decapitating Holofernes and has experienced the extraordinary power of this painting, the location of the sale will not matter much. Whether sold in Toulouse or New York, Caravaggio will go to the highest bidder. In any case, the painting will certainly not remain in Toulouse, nor in France.

The work’s owners want an ‘authentic’ sale, giving the Market the final word… without trying to control it. It’s a way of doing things that we have almost forgotten, and yet it is the veritable purpose of public sales. This confidence in the market can only be rewarded.”
