Question ID: 780750
I have acquired a painting at auction from Daniel Sabateur. The
painting is titled "La Creation" and dated (a plaque on the
front)1943. As I understand he was a friend and contemporary of Dali
and the impressionists but a lesser known artist from this era. The
auction house had it insured for cUSD 40?000. I have found almost no
information on this painter, but the auctioneer approached me
afterwards stating I got a bargain and that he will send me a write
up. I was hoping that anyone got shed more light on a valuation and
info about the painter.

Dear tbooysen,

I identified Daniel Sabateur's correct full name as Daniel Sabater y
Salabert. A Spanish painter and sculptor, born in Valencia in 1888. He
was an impressionist and, later, surrealist artist. He usually signed
his paintings "D. Sabater"; the missspelled variant "Sabatier" can be
found relatively often. In 1951, he died in Barcelona.

The biographical information I could retrieve is rather meager; I hope
to find out more in the library, though I can't promise that I will be
successful. It seems that Daniel Sabater was not among the most famous
painters of his time, and though he was a contemporary of Dali, I did
not come across any reference about their friendship yet.

To get an impression of the prices his paintings are offered and sold
for, please have a look at these examples:

Some of works do indeed have a remarkale value, as the following examples show

"Los Dos Rivales", sold for $4,600.00

"Una española en la tierra perdida", estimated at 9,000.00 Euros

Female portrait, offered for $2,250.00

"Viva tu Madre" (1931), sold for $2,000.00

However, most of his paintings are offered on the art market for lower
prices, like these:

"Malos Tiempos" (1950), 840 Euros

Female nude (1919), 225 Euros

Desnudo (1919), 350 Euros

In addition, here are several of his paintings for which I could not
find out their estimated values:

"Fantasy Landscape withe Figures" (1931)

"La maja moderna"

"El despertar" (1940)

"Cual creo primero Dios?" (1922)
