NEW YORK, NY.- This fall, Bonhams will offer Hilando (La tejedora) (estimate: $200,000-300,000), a beautiful watercolor by renowned Mexican artist Diego Rivera from the Collection of the late Dean and Jeanne Martin in the Impressionist & Modern Art sale on November 14. This previously unpublished work from the Martins’ collection can be seen in the left background of a 1966 family portrait taken at their 601 Mountain Drive home in Beverly Hills.
Famously ‘The King of Cool,’ Dean Martin’s résumé included actor, comedian, singer, film producer, entertainer extraordinaire, and of course as a charismatic member of the Rat Pack. His wife Jeanne, a former Orange Bowl queen from Coral Gables, Florida, had an affinity for the arts of Mexico, and collected pre-Columbian pottery and traditional Mexican textiles.
Bonhams Impressionist & Modern Art auction will take place November 14 at 5 p.m. in New York. The auction will preview at Bonhams from November 9-14, with highlights on view November 3-8.
