Special Notice

Lots are subject to 5% import Duty on the importation value (low estimate) levied at the time of collection shipment within UAE.

It is the buyer's responsibility to ascertain and pay all taxes due.

Lot Essay

'The breadth and spread of his touch, be it light or heavy, provides the mobility of reflections and nuances, the super-impression of visual sensations, heavy or limpid tonalities scattered throughout the space, a prodigious mosaic whose infinite motion is marvellous and fascinating to behold and gaze upon'.
(Raoul-Jean Moulin, 'Benanteur's Own Imaginary', translated by Ann Cremin, in C. Lemand ed., Benanteur - Peintures, Paris, 2002).
