I took this at
Christies, too. I was taken at low luminous and, actually, quite
colorful this painting was in the sense of it having bright golds, or
the illusion of gold color, by the way he juxtaposed his lights and
darks. The painting was in a dark area of the room and lit by one
strong light. I thought it best to take this angle so I could get the
frame and no glare.
I can only imagine that the timing of the auction at Christies,
November 29, 2001, was unfortunate in that we in NYC were deep in the
aftermath of 9-11.
Special thanks to Mark
contributing friend of the JSS Gallery, for share this with
us. See some of Mark's paintings at
