    A Look Inside the Catalogue

      

     

    Lot 10: Albrecht Dürer, The Nemesis, engraving, circa 1501-02. Sold for $87,500.

    This auction offered rare and museum-quality prints from the fifteenth- to twentieth centuries. Scarce and seminal works by old masters showcase innovations brought to the medium beginning in the late 1400s, when the concept of reproducing images was beginning to take root in the West. The sale continued through the late twentieth century, acting as an overview of the evolution of Western printmaking, and chronicling the dramatic changes of the latter half of the millennium.

     

     

    Lot 304: Edward Hopper, The Lonely House, etching, 1923. Sold for $317,000.

     

     

    A dramatic section of works by American artists in the first half of the twentieth century is led by Edward Hopper’s scarce and haunting etching, The Lonely House, 1923. Gritty, iconic views of working-class Manhattan by Martin Lewis are complemented by works executed during his Depression-era stay in the suburbs with friend and fellow artist Armin Landeck.
