One of the three paintings to be sold for over the one-million mark, Emily Carr‘s Wind in The Tree, circa 1939, went for a record $2,164,5000 on Heffel’s auction last night (June 17) at Vancouver Convention Centre. David Heffel, on the auction brochure: “I think there’s three key elements in this painting that pushes it to the forefront. One, it’s a great painting. Two, it’s in great condition. Three, it’s got great provenance.”
A small sketch by Tom Thomsom, Birches and Cedar (below), sold for $1,404,000. Read more at Vancouver Sun.
It’s good to see the art market in Vancouver – and Canada – showing this level of confidence and optimism.
