Women break big records at Los Angeles Modern Auctions Spring Auction

Female artists dominated in the Los Angeles Modern Auctions Spring 2018 Auction held on Sunday, June 10, 2018. The premier auction house on the West Coast for Modern and Contemporary Art & Design reports their top-selling lots were from female artists Mary Corse and Ruth Asawa, among others, indicating a trend toward rising prices of female artists’ work at a time when women’s empowerment is at the forefront of today’s issues. The Spring auction represented a snapshot of the current collecting trends of Modern and Contemporary fine art and design. The auction company features a carefully curated selection of works by noted artists and designers from around the world. However, especially timely were several works by traditionally underrepresented female names like the aforementioned artists and others like Claire Falkenstein and Helen Pashgian, who have had a tremendous impact on the art world over the last 60 years.
