Lot Essay

'Are we not, artists and bankers, very similar? Changers, money multipliers, gold makers, dazzling speculators of appearance. Maybe even charlatans? Seducers by means of the promise of wondrous multiplication? We both paint the paintings of happier times. We are magicians of appearance. The creators and administrators of the binding values of our times.'
-Thomas Huber
