NEW YORK – Capsule Auctions presents Bright Stars, a curated selection of works by modern, postwar and contemporary artists including Manoucher Yektai, Amedeo Modigliani, Andy Warhol and many more on Wednesday, Dec. 2. Bid absentee or live online through LiveAuctioneers.

Originating from private collections in New York, these artworks will illuminate any collection.

Rope Dancer #22 (above) is an excellent example of Jack Roth’s successful integration of abstract expressionism and color fields through the use of acrylic on canvas. This work was created in 1980, a year after Roth was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship.

Flower Still Life (below), circa 1957, by Andy Warhol is an outstanding example of his early work and authenticated by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
