Mondrian Auctions

[2nd August 2011]

I have been meaning for some time to compile a page of Mondrian auctions. As with most of the Pictures pages, I will concentrate on the abstracts from 1920 onwards, that is, B104.
The Catalogue lists auctions up to 1994 and I have found several since: the list will be incomplete but indicative. [Later - all the Catalogue data entered, but not checked. I note that many more of the "A" non abstracts have been auctioned, but not many pre-1920 "B" paintings and so I might go back and capture all the "B"s - now done.]

I guess the information we need is picture, date, amount, seller, buyer, and location of the auction. The Catalogue only lists date, location and picture.
Abbreviations will be appropriate.

I haven't done much on this page since 2011, but noticed A688 selling in NY - I intended to buy a lottery ticket, just in case, but forgot.
