The Modern and Contemporary Art Auction at Campo & Campo takes place on 22 and 23 October (expo from 14 to 20 October from 10 am to 6 pm). Quite a few established names in Belgian modern art are offered for sale. As eye-catchers we have two beautiful canvases by Eugeen Van Mieghem. For the one, a subtle portrait of two harbour girls, a yield of € 35,000-45,000 is expected. There is also a collection of works by the Antwerp modernist Paul Joostens, including the important panel De Openbaring of 1940 and also the last work that Joostens ever made, entitled De haat. For a beautiful eglomise of a harlequin by Floris Jespers, € 15,000-20,000 is expected.
Two works by international artists, who will appeal to collectors, are by Niki de Saint Phalle. Her rare, early work is deployed at € 30,000-40,000. In addition, a work on paper by the Asian artist Kim Tschang-Yeul (€ 12,000-15,000) is offered, along with a work by the Chinese assembly artist Zhuang HongYi. Just like last year we have a canvas by the Uruguayan modernist José Pedro Costigliolo,
Under post-war art you will find a collection of works by Gerard Schneider and a large collection of abstract works by Jules Lismonde, alongside some early works by Jan Cobbaert, jewelery by Octave Landuyt and a sculpture and an assembly by Paul Van Hoeydonck. A relief by Bram Bogart attracts attention (€ 20,000-30,000), in addition to a few works by Guy Vandenbranden, including a beautiful large-format canvas.
There are also discoveries within the contemporary art section. A beautiful work by Christian Silvain, an oil on canvas with assembly, goes under the hammer, alongside some large-format photographic works by the regretted artist Marc Lagrange and some works by Fred Bervoets.
Finally, in the section design we find a masterpiece, a coffe table by Ado Chale, estimated at € 7,000-10,000. A side from the table feature ceramics by Jan Cobbaert, Antonio Lampecco and tapestries by Jules Lismonde and a coffee table by Poul Kjaerholm for Frits Hansen.
