A portrait by Pablo Picasso and a painting by Canada’s Alex Colville led the parade last night in Toronto at the Heffel Fine Art Auction House virtual sale.

Picasso’s “Tete de Femme,” an oil-on-canvas painted in 1939 sold for $1.3 million.

But the highlight of the night….

Alex Colville’s highly anticipated “Dog and Bridge” outperformed its estimate of $800,000 to $1.2 million selling for a record $2.4 million.

Heffel’s president David Heffel says he’s thrilled the excitement over the Colville was matched by the bidders and added, “This sale, and all of the incredible works on offer proved that even during times of change, art continues to inspire and provide a beacon of light.”
