The Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the most historic landmarks in Paris and one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world, caught fire, 800 years of Heritage, History. My heart aches for Paris France. Prayers to all.#staystrongParisFrance
We are deeply saddened by the tragic fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, a treasure of the world’s cultural heritage. We extend our sympathies to the people of France and all those who were actively working to preserve its art and architecture. pic.twitter.com/Z4A2Ieq0yT
The Edward Hopper etching The Lonely House was the star lot going into the sale and in the live auction last night. The print sold for $310,000 vaulting past its pre auction estimate of $150,000-$200,000.
Hopper’s Les Poilus circa 1915 surpassed its $15000-$20,000 pre-sale estimate as well, selling for $42,500. I’ve sold an impression of the Lonely House before but I’ve only scene Les Poilus in the Whitney collection.
The sale featured Old Master through Modern prints by American and European artists.
