Lot 34. Pascal Möhlmann
Title: Phi(ght for your right), 2023
Materials: Oil on aluminium panel
Name: Pascal Möhlmann
Zurich based artist Pascal Möhlmann sits somewhere between the Louvre and social media. He is known for his reinterpretation of classical painting laden with the motifs of the modern age. Akin to the modern Neue Wilde or the traditional perfectionism of the old masters, Möhlmann’s distinctive style, “New Beauty,” sees the beauty of nature and the body in a contemporary landscape. His combination of “tradition” with current culture is a reminder of life, a reassurance that the present is just as valid as the past.
Even as culture has shifted towards the digital, Möhlmann affirms the tensions of the time by visually appreciating the world through the eyes of the masters. His style emerges between his sense of impatient urgency and love of the real, tangible beauty of the world; and thus his work is a vivid recreation of what he sees around him, in person or on social media. This cultural intelligence has adorned him with a large following and has allowed him to collaborate with household names like Virgil Abloh and Roger Federer. Pascal Möhlmann paints “what is now.”

Popcorn and cascade bidding:
If a bid is placed during the last 2 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional 2 minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.
Cascade bidding ensures auction lots close at staggering times, one after another. For example, the first lot of an auction might close at 12:01pm, the second lot would close at 12:02pm, then the third lot at 12:03pm, etc.
