Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Founded in 1992 by Peter Loughrey, Los Angeles Modern Auctions is the first auction house to specialize in selling 20th century Modern Art & Design. LAMA holds up to four auctions a year as well as occasional exhibits that are open to the public. 

LAMA auctions offer quality, vetted modern material in every price range, including paintings, prints, furniture, and decorative objects. With over 20 years of experience, LAMA has carved a niche into the international market through milestone auctions featuring artists and designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Paul Laszlo, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, and R.M. Schindler. 

LAMA has also conducted auctions for prominent California estates, including those of Dalzell Hatfield, James Prestini, James Byrnes, Max Palevsky, and Richard Dorso. From a single work of art to an entire estate, Los Angeles Modern Auctions is quickly becoming the choice auction house on the West Coast to buy and sell Modern Art & Design.
