Yesterday's Top Lots: 19th & 20th Century Prints & Drawings
Swann's two-part auction of Industry & Innovation: A Century of American Prints, and 19th & 20th Century Prints & Drawings, saw a great amount of interest across the board, and achieved a sell-through rate of 84 percent by lot. The day's top lot was Pablo Picasso's rare color linoleum cut, Homme à la fraise, 1962, which sold for a record $144,000. Amedeo Modigliani's drawing of Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky, circa 1910, brought $72,000.
