Paddle8, who collaborated with Visionaire to create the extraordinary 62nd issue, Rio, is an online auction house of the highest caliber. Currently up is the inaugural Editions Sale, through July 3rd. And who better to talk about the importance of editions than Cecilia Dean, who works exclusively with limited editions for Visionaire.
The sale ranges from works by twentieth-century masters like Alexander Calder, Andy Warhol, Louise Nevelson, Jasper Johns, Robert Indiana, and Claes Oldenburg, to editions by contemporary stalwarts including Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst, and Laurie Simmons, and works by cutting-edge artists like Tauba Auerbach, Walead Beshty, Joe Bradley, and Nate Lowman. With estimates that range from $400 to $150,000, the sale presents both emerging and seasoned collectors with the opportunity to acquire works by important artists of the past hundred years alongside ascendant artists of the twenty-first century.
