The Art of the Deal
July 31, 2005
Leaning back in his leather-chaired office tucked away in his gallery on St. Mary's Road, the modestly suited David Loch looks more like an insurance broker than the man who bought Paul Kane's Scene from the Northwest for Lord Thomson for $5.0 million in 2002, the highest amount ever paid for a Canadian painting. This May, during the high-end spring auction season, he gained national attention for record-setting bids of more than $550,000 for an oil sketch of Mount Robson by Lawren Harris and $388,300 for the same artist's sketch of Clyde Inlet, Baffin Island. He also represents two of Winnipeg's best-known artists, Ivan Eyre and Leo Mol. Then there's the man's love of Pooh.
The Art of Salesmanship
November 28, 2004
Toronto Star. Toronto, Ont.: Nov 28, 2004. pg. A.03 by Andrew Mills By the time lot 12 came up at Heffel's art auction Thursday night, David Loch had moved his chair to the middle of the aisle for an uninterrupted view of the auctioneer. Bidding on the large winter scene by Kurelek opened at $40,000 and, though the action was at the front of the hotel ballroom, the auctioneer's gaze rarely strayed from Loch, who was refusing to bid, some 20 rows away. Unflinching, Loch stared back, his cellphone pressed hard to his right ear. "85 up front. 90. 95. Okay," Loch calmly told the client on the other end of the phone, lifting his paddle no higher than his head to bid $100,000. "We're in now."
