The upcoming Clars auction features a watercolor piece titled Victory: The Spanish War (1947). With over a million lives lost and the eventual victory of a fascist ruler, the Spanish Civil War was one of the most devastating conflicts in Spanish history. This watercolor and Indian ink painting by Surrealist Salvador Dalí depicts the consequences of the war. Dalí was recognized for connecting his paintings with contemporary political events. In this work, he distorted the proportions of the central figure to suggest the suppression of the war’s opposition. The painting is accompanied by a letter of authenticity.
Alongside several pre-Columbian prints, sculptures, and pieces of furniture, a selection of luxury watches and fine jewelry will be available. Highlighted among these is the “Reine de Naples” vintage wristwatch. Made by Breguet, it features a moon phase aperture. This piece was inspired by an early bracelet for the Queen of Naples.
