Neue Auctions is pleased to offer a selection of modern and contemporary art in our forthcoming February 22, 2020 online auction. Major bursts of color have filled our gallery space and the effect is surprisingly refreshing!
From modern masters to the mid twentieth century to the contemporary, there are many, many gorgeous and unique works that will surely change your life and your home.
Lot 16 is a floral still life by French painter Jean Jules-Louis Cavailles,( 1901-1977 ) a member of the artist group “La Realite Poetique,” depicting a wild tangle of flowers mid arrangement, from a Cleveland collector, estimated $3000-5000. Lots 17 and 18 are two exuberant floral works by Cleveland born New York artist Bob Kane. Kane’s works were collected by luminaries like Audrey Hepburn, Al Pacino and Leonard Nimoy. Modern, bold and with heavy impasto, they are surely statement makers.
Four exciting works by young and emerging Cleveland artist Rose Haserodt continue in this colorful vein. Haserodt graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2015 and is an accomplished painter using bold color and flat style paired with intriguing juxtapositions of scale and space. Her color is especially luminous, and the larger scale of these works makes them statement pieces.
The estate of a Tennessee doctor brought a collection of contemporary Southwest art to Neue Auctions, and these works too are full of joyous color. Depicting the landscape of Taos, New Mexico, these traditionally trained painters relish the color and beauty of the region. With quite a few of these works affordably estimated, there are many to choose from.
A collection of work by New Mexico artist John Nieto from the same estate is also an interesting study in color. Nieto’s subject of the Native American is depicted in bold, flat areas of color in unusual combinations. With a collection of oils and prints, these too come in several price ranges.
Cleveland artist Julian Stanczak is once again represented in our auction, with a fiery print entitled “Harmony Yellow,” from 1991, and included in the frontispiece of the Stanczak book, Decades of Light, signed by the artist, and estimated at $400-700.
Three works by African-American artist Carroll Sockwell (1943-1992) are also featured in the sale. All three are pastels and depict abstract studio interiors and a still life. Raised in Washington, DC, Sockwell relocated to New York at the age of 17 where he joined the art scene of the late 1950’s and early sixties, experimenting with abstract expressionism, Pop and Minimalism. Returning to Washington DC in 1963, he was successful as an artist and curator, exhibiting at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, The Brooklyn Museum and the Whitney. Lots 163-165.
The sale also features a selection of works from a corporate collection, including a large scale print by Tom Wesselman, Lot 158, Bridget Riley, Lot 159, Alex Katz Lot 160, a small selection of sculpture and Cleveland School works including Frank Wilcox.
