Fine & Decorative Arts Flourish For DuMouchelles

From Antiques and the Arts Weekly – DETROIT, MICH. — Bidders competed for 1,020 lots in DuMouchelles’ December 2023 auction on December 14 and 15. More than 80 percent of the lots gaveled down successfully from the podium, with after-sale transactions likely taking place as they usually do.

DuMouchelles’ chairwoman, Joan DuMouchelle Walker, said, “Our December sales have splen- didly closed the year, reflecting the art market’s endurance. The wide array of artworks and antiques attracted a passionate audience, serving as evidence that the appetite for quality and history remains strong across the globe.”

A local bidder won for $58,050 the sale’s top lot, Romare Bearden’s(American,1911-1988) collage and mixed media on Masonite composition titled

“Enchanted Woman.” Made in 1971, the work had provenance that included a Birmingham, Mich., gallery; it had been con- signed to DuMouchelles from the Bloomfield Hills, Mich., estate of Evelyn Zeman, a prominent col- lector of art and design.
