Lot Notes

One of the most ludic appearances in Romanian contemporary art, the series of toys by Dorel Topan is highly appreciated by local collectors, who find in his playful and joyful artworks an optimistic addition to their collection, or, sometimes, even the appropriate way to start an art collection for their children.

Nevertheless, Dorel Topan's appreciation goes beyond national borders. His series of Pop Art works was shown in a solo exhibition in USA in 2013.
