David Dike Fine Art Texas Art Auction | Sat. January 25, 2014
David Dike Fine Art founded the annual Texas Art Auction in 1996, which has become a tradition that Texas art enthusiasts anticipate each year. The January 25, 2014 was a success with 84% of the 300 lots sold. A highlight from the auction was the sale of the Alexandre Hogue pair of lithographs titled Spindeltop and Swindletop; the lot sold for $50,525. This year the Texas Art Auction saw a big increase in online and absentee bids. Plus over 400 people attended the auction to bid, view the artwork, experience the lively Texas art collecting crowd and to witness some exciting sales.
Another sale of note was the Jose Arpa painting of Enchanted Mesa, New Mexico reaching $117,500. Texas art reaches beyond its borders, and the sale of this non-Texas subject matter, its bringing great attention and selling above the high estimate price bodes well for the market of early Texas artists.
2014 also marked for a successful year in the sale of works on paper. Some great lithogrpahs done in the 1930’s by Otis Dozier brought a lot of attention, including the Jackrabbits, Ed. 8/28 selling for $8,225; and the Road Runner, 1938 selling for $9,400. The sale was held once again at the Wildman Art Framing, and was clerked and conducted by Murad Auctions.
The Auction was held once again at Wildman Art Framing located at 1715 Market Center Boulevard in the Dallas Design District. Louis Murad TXS 13362 was the auctioneer.
