At its 85th auction, the KODL Gallery offered 220 extraordinary works of art. The combined starting price of 160 million Czech crowns was increased to almost 320 million CZK with 98 percent of the lots sold. The most expensive lots are the paintings "Night Party (Fireworks)" and "Fair" by Toyen.
The second Artslimit online auction will present a balanced collection of works from the 19th and 20th centuries with overlaps to contemporary art. Represented by their works are authors whose names resonate in the room auctions of the Gallery KODL, as well as a number of other interesting artists. The 19th century is particularly widely presented. In addition to for example Albert Zimmermann and A.B. Piepenhagen, there is a large-format canvas by Josef Ullmann entitled Motif from Průhonice Park, and artists from the Mařák's school are also richly represented. The twentieth century will feature works by Václav Zykmund, Bohumír Matal, Kamil Lhoták, Květa Válová and Alena Kučerová for instance. Krištof Kintera will present the current art scene. The bidding will start on August 23rd at 10 a.m. and the lots will start to close on September 12th from 2 p.m.
