About the work

Drawn from a photograph taken by Félix Gonzáles-Torres the work depicts the view from Ann Goldstein and Christopher Williams’ apartment in golden hour. The view shows LA from deco building – the Ravenswood, Rossmore Avenue, in which Félix and Ross were neighbours with Ann and Christopher for five months in 1990. The view, often revisited by Round, was initially sketched as part of the series ‘and after: a summer, of yes, more love.’, 2021. Varying in abstraction and subject the works combine elements from Round’s surroundings with the images found in ‘A Selection of Snapshots Taken by Félix González-Torres’, A.R.T. Press, 2010, so as to construct an alternative reality shared by the two.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
