You could have had a bargain five months ago


Beyond helping Creative Works Studio, Judy Scolnik also works at the Heffel auction house in Toronto. I was reading this article in the Vancouver Sun hyping their upcoming action (and it does sound cool!) and I happened to come across this painting by Paul-Émile Borduas.

Estimated to sell for between $30,000 and $40,000 (not including buyer's premium or taxes) last November it had been put up for sale by the Artothèque, here in Montreal. Back then the starting bid was $25,000, there was no buyer's premium, although you can't escape the taxes. As the provenance details do not list another owner after the Artothèque, my guess is that it didn't sell back then, but will likely sell in May.
