The ECA makes odd choices. Last time it was the Allora and Calzadilla send up of capitalism and militarism that you saw. Before that I think it was Felix Gonzales Torres, or rather his estate, since he'd already been dead for more than a decade.
Would love to see the pics if you wouldn't mind sending. I only saw images of the tank.

Those are good examples of work that requires some context to fully understand, though, obviously, stand on their own.
I will send you the catalog

Father Maur van Doorslaer
Quote:
In 1951, he entered the Monastery of Sint Andries in Brugges, Belgium, which is the motherhouse of St. Andrew’s Abbey in Valyermo. As a monk he studied Philosophy and Theology in preparation for his ordination in 1958. Fr. Maur was sent to Paris in 1959 and studied pastoral work from 1960 to 1961. There he visited many galleries and exhibitions and kept abreast of the trends of the modern art world. He was especially interested in non-figurative art including Geometric Constructivism, the Lyrical Abstraction of the Ecole de Paris and Abstract Expressionism. ...Fr. Maur lives, prays and works in his own monastery, Sint Andries Abdij, Zevenkerken in Brugge, Belgium. In his studio, he paints his white-on-white canvasses, which are composed of basic geometric forms: crosses, rectangles, circles and squares, concentric squares, and divisions of the square into other squares and rectangles and triangles.

In his work, we find “the restfulness of symmetry, the equilibrium of the perfectly balanced composition and the harmony and stillness of an autonomous world of pure form.”

This is pretty awesome.

I enjoyed the Alighiero Boetti Game Plan show at MoMA this past week. The drawings are particularly interesting. It's worth seeing if anyone was mildly interested. Additionally, Ellsworth Kelly's Plant Drawings at The Met is a fun one.

A new one. Oil on linen.

Is an Artnet subscription pretty much the only way to find prices from past art auctions? I realize the information is valuable, but a $350/yr subscription price? No thanks. crazy.gif

Many auction houses (and not just Sotheby's and Christies) archive results so you can get a good idea of the price range for an artist if you do enough research. You can also call a dealer who has sold or sells work from a particular artist and inquire about pricing. They will usually be fairly candid about giving you a range for the artist.

Setting a range for most artists isn't all that difficult because it depends mostly on the medium and size of the work. In rarer cases, particularly for more renowned artists, will you see significant differences based on period and provenance.
