Fine Art Auction at the Rago Auction Center

Fine Art Auction at Rago Arts & Auction Center under the direction of Jeffrey Fuller Fine Art, Ltd. Saturday, November 20, 2004, 12 Noon EST Session One: Works of Art from the Samuel S. Fleisher Memorial Art Collection Lots 1-148 The paintings and prints in the collections of the Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial were acquired largely at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts annual exhibitions in the 1950’s and 1960’s. A number of the acquisitions were made to recognize Fleisher’s distinguished teaching artists and bastions of the Philadelphia art world: Julius Bloch, Larry Day, Filomena Dellaripa, Ben Eisenstat, Tom Gaughan, Martin Jackson, Leon Karp, Patricia Mangione and Benton Spruance, and others are excellent examples of the best work of the time: an important transitional painting by Will Barnet; and prints by Gabor Peterdi, Misch Kohn and Mauricio Lasansky. Another aspect of the collection is a group of Russian icons, acquired by Samuel and Edwin Fleisher during their lifetime, and a few collected in Russia in the 1920’s. While there are a few examples of 16th and 17th century Moscow school icons, they are largely 17th to 19th century works, many of the “peasant craft” type depicting archetypal images of the Madonna and Child (based on the miraculous images of the Virgin of Smolensk and Kazan) and the Crucifixion. The Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial is one of the oldest and largest community-based art programs in the nation. Session Two: Works of Art from various owners including paintings, drawings, sculpture, prints and photographs Lots 149-626 Immediately following Session One
