A highlight among the portraits in the sale is a Cubism-inspired work by Leonard Alberts in which warm tones and geometric shapes create a sharp-looking seated figure. It is estimated at $400-$600.
Chief among the sailor-themed selections in the sale is a watercolor titled Sailors on Leave, which depicts a cartoonish parade of French sailors admiring women. Created by an unknown artist, the work is estimated at $200-$400.
Offerings of note from the collection of Seymour Stein is a painting titled Welder by Stanley Twardowicz. The portrait, which dates to 1943, showcases Twardowicz’s skill in realist representation; he later went on to be associated with the Abstract Expressionist movement. Welder is estimated at $500-$800.
