    Beverly Hills, California – March 7, 2017 – Carlyle Galleries International, Inc., ( the online fine art dealers and auctioneers, is hosting their next auction: “ART: European – American – Latin – Asian” on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 10:00AM Pacific Time. Carlyle’s latest online auction offers a curated selection of nearly 200 lots of fresh-to-the-market paintings, sculpture, and works on paper. Many of the artworks being offered are from local Los Angeles estates and collections of entertainment industry luminaries. As always, Carlyle’s auction features an eclectic mix of fine art, including: European, American, Russian, Asian, Latin and Middle Eastern, 19th century, modernist, and Old Master paintings and drawings. Estimates range between $100 and $40,000, offering an opportunity for collectors at all price points. Auction Highlights include: Macario Vitalis Macario Vitalis Up for bidding will be two mid-1950’s masterpieces by Filipino Moderninst painter Macario Cruz Vitalis (1898-1990), regarded as one the most important Filipino artists of the 20th century. Born in the small town of Lapog, Locos Sur, in the Philippines, Vitalis moved to the United States, arriving in San Francisco in 1917. Vitalis studied at the California School of Fine Arts, and later the Pennsylvania Academy of Art. Macro Vitalis moved to Paris in the mid-1920’s where he met Picasso, and other important modern painters. Vitalis is noted for his post-impressionist and cubist style of painting, shared by his peers Cesar Legaspi, Vicente S Manansala, who sell for as much as $500,000 at auctions. The two 1950’s paintings, in Vitalis’ signature cubist style, feature rich, bright colors, depicting French landscapes. Artwork by Macro Vitalis rarely comes to the market, and what makes this offering especially compelling is it’s provenance from the collection of Louis & Annette Kaufman. Louis Kaufman (1905-1994) was a Romanian American Violinist, and possibly the most recorded musical artist of the 20th century. Kaufman, was the most sought-after violinist in Hollywood during 1930’s-50’s, and performed on the soundtrack of as many as 500 movies, including “Casablanca”, “Spartacus”, and other Oscar-winning films.

    Carlyle’s Summer Art Auctions Sizzle With Frenzied International Bidding And Record Prices

    Claude Bouscharain – SOLD $3,300 Beverly Hills, CA – September 1, 2016 –  While the summer months are traditionally the slowest for art sales, Carlyle wrapped up it’s best auction season ever. Carlyle Auctions, which specializes in selling fine art, exclusively through online auctions, sold to bidders in over 35 countries, at prices ranging from $200 to $400,000, across the complete spectrum of art – from Old Masters and 19th Century to Modern and Contemporary – setting record prices for several artists. What sets Carlyle part from other auction houses, is that Carlyle runs its auctions completely online, without traditional auctioneers or floor bidders. With it’s recent successful auction season, Carlyle is proving that it can get top prices for consignors, matching and often outperforming traditional auction houses, and even specialty themed auctions. The key for Carlyle Auctions success, according to CEO Jack Marks, is “innovative and aggressive online marketing which reaches non-traditional buyers, in addition to the broader collector market worldwide. Simply put – we are able to get paintings in front of high volumes of qualified buyers. Another advantage is our smaller size – we may only have 150 lots in an auction – which means that good paintings get more attention, than they would in larger traditional auctions, which are usually twice the size”. Key highlights of Carlyle’s summer auction season: A mid-Century painting by French/South African female surrealist painter Claude Bouscharain, achieved $3,300 when it sold in Carlyle’s June 16 auction, above it’s $1,000-2,000 estimate.
