Year after year Santa Monica Auctions has attracted knowledgeable collectors as well welcoming new art collectors – don’t miss the art talk this Saturday, June 4 at 1:00pm by Robert Berman himself who will be discussing the work up for auction. If you have ever considered becoming a collector, this SANTA MONICA AUCTIONS is easy and affordable way to jump in. Be sure to attend the talk and ask questions…or just sit back and learn. I can tell you first hand that Robert Berman is ONE of THE most knowledgeable dealers in the art world today. He has owned an operated SANTA MONICA AUCTIONS since 1984 and continues to add to his own personal collection. “We have one of Warhol’s incredible silk screens (from the same lot that was recently stolen from a museum in Missouri) – in mint condition and has never seen the light of day,” said Robert Berman, owner of the SANTA MONICA AUCTIONS.”We also have a rare nude called Maybelle by Robert Maplethorpe…one of ten…probably worth 30,000 to 40,000.”

Artworks by artists such as Banksy, Jean Michel Basquiat, David Bowie, George Condo, Shepard Fairey, Sam Francis, Robert Heinecken, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Mapplethorpe, Helmut Newton, Raymond Pettibon, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and more will all be up for auction at reduced prices.
