Boccioni and Severini not so hot at Christie’s Sale

Umberto Boccioni’s Donna che cuce and Gino Severini’s Natura morta – compotier bleu failed to sell at Christie’s Italian Sale on October 20, 2008 (King’s Street, London), though these pieces did make it to the floor.

Cristiano De Lorenzo of Christie’s London theorized that perhaps this was because the collectors primarily came out for the contemporary works of Italian Art, as attested to by the sale of Lucio Fontana’s works, though Giorgio Morandi’s also did quite well.
