Alex Colville; Canadian Art Heavyweight

Heffel Auction House sold $14-million worth of Canadian Art on Thursday, setting at least a dozen Canadian fine art auction records. Among the impressive group of Canadian paintings and cultural masterworks was a piece by living Canadian Artist; Alex Colville.

Colville’s Man on Verandah (painted in 1953) was expected to bring in about $500,000 but fetched a staggering $1,287,000 from a private European collector, reaffirming his ‘Canadian Art Heavyweight‘ status.
