October 13, 2011
Train arrivant à Paris was originally given to the Dutch collector H. van Assendelft by Severini himself in 1916. Van Assendelft was an early friend and patron of Kandinsky, Mondrian and Severini, and was the first owner of the Stedelijk Museum’s train painting. (Tate)
Train arrivant à Paris is estimated at £500,000-700,000. UPDATE: SOLD hammer price £735,650
Natura morta con arance, 1917, is estimated at £400,000-600,00. NOT SOLD
Let us not forget the Severini which sold in 2008 for £15.04 million (NYTimes) – making it the most expensive Futurist work ever sold at auction.
