Strong demand for international as well as Austrian art marked the successful auction of „Modern Art“ taking place at the Vienna Dorotheum on 24th. The highlight of the international selection was a Still Life with a View of St Peter's in Rome by Gino Severini, sold to a European collector for 145.300 Euro (Cat. No. 503), while a gouache by Fernand Léger was worth 82.555 Euro to a Spanish buyer (Cat. No. 535).
Modern sculpture also left a strong impression with works like Arturo Martini's bronze Shepherdess (€ 73.500, Cat. No. 544) or Giacomo Manzù's Cardinal (€ 85.700, Cat. No. 501).
Austrian painting had a field day, in particular two of its most important protagonists, Kolo Moser and Carl Moll: Moser's suggestive self portrait of 1915 reached 116.200 Euro, and his Treetops in a mountain landscape 133.800 Euro (Cat. No. 514, 510). This price was matched by an Impression of Schönbrunn by Carl Moll, sold to a European bidder (Cat. No. 511), while a Southern coastal landscape of 1930 by the same artist finished the bidding at 49.100 Euro (Cat. No. 513).
