Los Angeles Modern Auction to Offer Unique Modern Art & Design Sale on June 26


LOS ANGELES, CA.- A rare Robert Rauschenberg Combine from 1958, a collection of William “Billy” Haines custom designs, and a Calder painting are among the many highlights in the upcoming LAMA June 26, 2011 Modern Art & Design Auction. Each of these highlights has come from decades-old collections and nearly half of the 452 lots have never traded hands on the open market. Peter Loughrey, Director of LAMA: “Unique design originals are disappearing quickly from view in the market and will be increasingly hard to source in the near future. Because of our past performance, we are getting access to better and better material from estates and private collections. As a result LAMA is fast becoming the preferred auction house on the West Coast.” Untitled (Combine) 1958 by Robert Rauschenberg (Estimate $100,000 – 150,000) was originally created for painter and collage
