PICASSO, WARHOL, KOONS, RUSCHA, AND HOW TO AFFORD THEM

This one hour lecture by Peter Loughrey, Founder and Director of Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) and alumnus of Sotheby’s Institute of Art, will discuss iconic works by four of the 20th century’s biggest names. Comparisons will be made between the most expensive examples by each artist and relevant inexpensive, entry–level works that share the same imagery. Emphasis will be placed on original prints and multiples, and on the explanation of various artistic mediums and processes. Original works from Modern and Contemporary masters are not out of reach, you just need to know what to look for.

Peter Loughrey is an established curator and consultant, as well as a recognized expert in Modern Design & Fine Art. He is a member of LACMA‘s Decorative Arts and Design Acquisition Committee and of its Contemporary Friends; a contributor to a number of Taschen titles (Case Study Houses, 2003; Julius Shulman Modernism Rediscovered, 2007; and Collecting Design, 2010); and regularly appears as an appraiser on PBS’s Antiques Roadshow.

Peter has also been featured on Forbes’ Sold!, on Ovation TV, and Fox Business’ Strange Inheritance. Peter was the co-curator of Gio Ponti: Furnished Settings & Figuration (2004) and Dutch Design (2005), both at ACME Gallery. In 2010 he co-curated and published a catalogue Gaetano Pesce: Pieces from a Larger Puzzle at Los Angeles’s Italian Cultural Institute.

Art + Auction has named him one of the 50 most powerful dealers in Los Angeles.
