Lot 0102 Details

Description
Watercolor and gouache with traces of pencil on heavy card stock, Suprematist composition, signed* in cyrillic (Ivan Vasilievitch Kliun, 1873-1943). Dated 1929. 3 3/4 x 9 1/4 inches. Shows minor signs of age, otherwise very good condition. No repairs or visible damage. Unframed for inspection and shipping. Sold unframed.

Provenance: By descent to the consignor, whose family acquired this lot (together with a large collection of other Russian and Soviet drawings) sometime in the 1970s from the family of Kaspar Wanner, the consignor's great grand uncle and son-in-law of Aleksey Kuropatkin (1848-1925). It is believed that Kaspar Wanner acquired the present work directly from Ivan Kliun, while working as a teacher at the Academy of Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia. Preston Hall Gallery offered and sold other Kliun drawings and watercolors from this same collection in 2012 and 2013.

*Preston Hall Gallery has not had this lot examined by an expert to determine its authenticity. The lot description and the lot title are for identification purposes only and do not constitute an attribution. Preston Hall Gallery is not an authority on works by this artist. The style, subject matter, and signature seem correct in our opinion although our assessment may not be accurate. Some works sold by Preston Hall Gallery have subsequently been authenticated and resold by major auction houses worldwide; however, we cannot guarantee the same outcome for the present lot. There are risks associated with buying unauthenticated works of art. The value and marketability of this work could be positively or negatively affected by an expert's examination and opinion. Such opinions can vary, and some opinions may not be favorable. An expert or panel of experts could judge the work to be "in the style" of (but not by) the named artist, an "afterwork" (a copy), or a counterfeit (a forgery).
