ST LOUIS MODERNIST EXCEEDS SELKIRK EXPECTATIONS

ST LOUIS, MO. –

 

 

 

A Modernist landscape titled “Near Vernon Blvd” by St Louis regional artist Arthur Osver (1912-2006) made nearly six times its estimate when it sold to a private collector bidding online for $5,938. It was one of the top sellers in Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers November 9 sale and had been estimated at $1/3,000.

 

Commenting after the sale, a spokesperson for Selkirk’s said it was a great painting by a highly prized regional artist who was an art instructor at Washington University in St Louis from 1960-83. His popularity can also be attributed to the recent publication of a book about the artist: Arthur Osver: Urban Landscape, Abstraction, and the Mystique of Place (May 2018).
