GAZETTE DROUOT INTERNATIONAL / AUCTION RESULTS

€761,460 Dadaist sculpture, mixed media, ca. 1921, 24 x 18 cm.

€1,878,840
As we remember, on 22 April this year, in a Paris
sale devoted to pieces connected with the dancer and choreographer Serge Lifar, a curious Dadaist assemblage given to him by Coco Chanel created a surprise in garnering €120,564 (Arts Talents Enchères). On 22 September, the same auction house offered four similar works, which led to a positive hurly-burly of bidding and totted up a tidy total of €1,878,840. These anonymous assemblages evoking one of the world's most famous fragrances, Chanel No. 5, rallied bidders from all over the world, mainly Asia. However, the nationality of the winners remains a secret... The highest bid, €761,460, went to the mixed media in the photo. It makes direct reference to Misia Sert, through whom Coco Chanel got to know Serge Lifar. Nicknamed "the Queen of Paris", Misia was the patron of Sergei Diaghilev and his Ballets Russes, and introduced him to Maurice Ravel. Paul Morand paints a spirited portrait of her in "Venise": ‘She stimulated genius just as certain kings make conquerors, through the mere vibration of her being.’ As proved by the bidding! The friendship between Serge Lifar and Coco was extremely close, and the couturière treated him as a brother. In this composition, Misia's name is mingled with the word "éternité", while it remains separate in another mixed media (24 x 18 cm) knocked down for €336,312. The name of Coco Chanel also features in it, with the word "amour" surrounded by glittering studs. Another composition garnered the splendid sum of €501,295, while €279,202 went to the last one, which features "parfum" associated with "mystère". The estimate for each of these holograms had been no more than €12,000. A heady perfume that certainly inspired some heady bids... Sylvain Alliod
