Fall 2015 Fine Prints and Photography Auction
Waddington’s is pleased to present our Fall 2015 Fine Prints and Photography Auction, featuring an exceptional group of works from celebrated Canadian and international artists that spans from the 15th to the 21st centuries.
We are also privileged to announce Waddington’s continued involvement in the sale of works deaccessioned from the Art Gallery of Ontario. This auction includes a number of fine prints that have been deaccessioned in anticipation of future acquisitions that will complement the existing collection of the Art Gallery.
We are honoured to present graphics gleaned from private collections, including those from the extraordinary collecting eye of Erica Rutherford (1923-2008). A celebrated Canadian artist and undoubtedly astute collector, her extraordinary life adventures took her across the globe. Proceeds from the sale of this collection will benefit The Erica Rutherford Memorial Scholarship.
Collectors will find masterworks by Zao Wou-ki, Jasper Johns, Helmut Newton, Jean-Paul Riopelle and full portfolios by Marino Marini, Foujita, and Paul Wunderlich. Highlights include old master etchings by Rembrandt, Durer and their contemporaries; an impressive Canadian album circa 1866-1867 by William Notman; and M.C. Escher’s Platwormen (Flatworms), acquired directly from the artist.
This auction presents an opportunity to appreciate an array of works that showcases the extraordinary breadth and scope of the full histories of photography, fine prints, and multiples. Likewise, it offers collectors an appealing range of estimates and artworks.
