It was purchased from the Columbus Circle Gallery 2001 and they appraised it for $750
The appraised work is a lithograph by American artist and sculptor Alexander Calder (1898-1976) signed and editioned at recto. The print depicts a series of pyramidal and geometric forms, executed in bright colors and bold lines. Though perhaps best-known for his wire mobiles, Calder was also an avid printmaker, particularly at the end of his career. His prints tend to feature primary colors, geometric lines, spirals and flattened biomorphic shapes, elements often reminiscent of his sculptural work. The estimate provided is based on comparables recently offered and sold at auction. The appraised work's size, composition, medium and condition (based on images provided), as well as the artist's current auction market were taken into consideration when determining the estimate. In many cases, pricing for similar examples available on the primary (retail) market vary, and are often higher than secondary (auction) market examples.
