Original works by listed artists lead Jasper52 auction, Aug. 26
NEW YORK – Ready-to-hang original works by listed artists of the 19th and 20th centuries will be offered in a Jasper52 online auction on Saturday, Aug. 26. Nearly 50 oil paintings, watercolors and pastels will be available to the highest bidders. Absentee and Internet live bidding is available through LiveAuctioneers.
Prominent New York artist Gustav Burkhard will get the auction off to a bold and colorful start with a large pastel on paper nude study (above) from the estate of a private collector in Denver. This Abstract Expressionist’s works are in the permanent collections of major museums in the U.S. and abroad.
Carrying the highest estimate in the sale at $2,500-$3,500 is an oil-on-canvas painting depicting a theatrical rehearsal of Othello by Abraham Solomon.
Carl Henrik Bogh’s large oil-on-canvas painting of a deer on a hillside dates to the 1870s and has a $1,750-$2,500 estimate.
A beautiful 19th-century Mexican School portrait of a young girl is impressive in its 45-by-35-inch frame.
John Fleming Gould (American, 1906-1996) contributes a dramatic Illustration for story in Delineator Magazine, 1932, which pictures a young man and woman in a classroom.
Los Angeles artist Laddie John Dill (b.1943) is represented by an untitled oil paint, cement, wash and monotype multiple on hand-crafted paper. His work is owned by many private collectors and is included in the permanent collections of more than 25 museums. Using natural pigments he incorporates in his work a wide range of colors from brick reds derived from iron oxide, coal blacks from black sulphur, yellows and naturally mined cobalt blues. Combinations of these natural pigments create a variety of brilliant but still “organic” colors.
The auction will begin at 12 noon Eastern time on Saturday, Aug. 26.
