An American artist living and working in Florence, Italy, Richard Maury (1935-2020) is renowned for his precise realistic images. A glowing depiction of Florence in the sale encapsulates Maury’s transcendent rendering of natural light (est. $6,000-9,000).
Bessarabian-born Realist painter Tully Filmus (1903-1998) was well-known for his fun paintings of dancing Rabbis, as well as his meticulous portraits. An elaborate scene entitled Rehearsal Break shows Filmus telling a story with light and shadows (est. $7,000-9,000).
The daughter of painters Milton and Sally Avery, March Avery (b. 1932) was self-trained – evidently not receiving guidance from her parents. Afternoon in Italy is a prime example of Avery’s use of warm colors and flattened, abstracted forms (est. $6,000-9,000).
Beaux Arts alum Bernard Pothast (1882-1966) was a highly-regarded genre painter who often depicted scenes of peasant families. Admiring the Baby is indicative of Pothast’s renderings of 19th Century rustic scenes of private moments (est. $5,000-8,000).
The beloved Romanian painter Stefan Luchian (1869-1916) battled Multiple Sclerosis throughout his life, even painting with brushes tied to his wrist when his condition worsened. Luchian’s bright Still Life with Flowers and a Jug is an excellent example of the great influence the Impressionists had on his work (est. $5,000-8,000).
