Three young, aspiring artists came into the preview today to have a look around. Claire Cregan, a student at Otis College of Art & Design, noted that she gravitated toward works that were similar to her own. Her favorite item in the sale is Lot 574, Untitled, by Howard Hodgkin. This still life was produced in 1980 and is the Printer’s Proof aside from the edition of 100. Claire found that she particularly enjoyed the shapes and colors in the Hodgkin because they were so similar to her own style.
We got a photo of her on her way out, right in front of the Giacometti Chandeliers, Lots 282 and 283.
