One very rare piece in this auction, is Composition (1926) by Marcel Iancu, one of the fewest works from the Romanian period of the artist, before he left to Palestine, together with his family in 1941. Marcel Iancu was one of the most important promoters of the Avantgarde art, alongside Victor Brauner, present in our auction with an exceptional drawing made by him for his lifetime friend Andre Breton. The work was part of the collection of Andre Breton and represents a pictopoem dedicated to Breton, by Brauner. Another masterpiece highlighted in our action is the rare painting of Max Hermann Maxy from 1926, Still life with a celluloid doll and iron. The work was previously part of a very famous art collection belonging to the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of RDG, Lothar Bolz.
