Last night’s Toronto auction of high end Canadian art was the highest grossing fine art auction in Canadian history.
A canvas by Group of Seven artist Lawren Harris “Mountain and Glacier”, outperformed its estimate of $1.5 million selling for $4.6 million. It was one of three Harris pieces that sold for a combined total of $9.5 million.
Tom Thomson’s “After the Storm”, believed to be his last work, sold for almost $1.3 million.
Alex Colville’s “Harbour” sold for $1.9 million, more than twice its estimated price.
The auction at Heffel Fine Art Auction House saw sales of almost $23.5 million, far surpassing presale estimates of up to $15 million.
