Artworks by Two Iranian Modernist Artists Auctioned at Artcurial09 Jun 2022
Artcurial Auction House will host an auction titled "Post-War and Contemporary Art" on June 9, 2022. Artcurial was established in 2002 in Paris and soon became one of the pioneering auction houses in France. Artcurial was previously focused on specialized fields including decorative arts, automobile, jewelry, and watches, and has recently added street art and design to its field of activity.
In this auction, 198 artworks by artists from the second half of the 20th century will be presented; among them, Berto Lardera, the Italian sculptor, with 29 sculptures, and Robert Combas, the French painter, with 12 paintings and a painted guitar, have the highest number of artworks auctioned in the event. Moreover, artwork No. 449 (numbering starts from 400) by Maurice Estève, the French painter, was evaluated with the highest estimated price of €60/000 to 80/000.
Two artworks by Iranian modernist artists, Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam (b. 1924, Tehran) and Charles Hossein Zenderoudi (b. 1937, Tehran), will also be auctioned at this event:
Artwork No. 456, "Untitled", by Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam (1961), 50 × 69 cm (estimated price: €15/000 – 20/000):
Mohsen Vaziri Moghaddam is considered as one of the first Iranian artists who used a combination of different unconventional materials like gravel and sand. "Sand Painting" later became one of his most important artistic practices.
Artwork No. 457, “RNT + R”, by Charles Hossein Zendehroudi (1975), 55 × 33 cm (estimated price: €20/000 – 25/000):
Playing with lines and using repetitive elements are among the distinguishing features of Zenderoudi's artworks. This way he expresses his knowledge and awareness of the current discourse in modern art.
