Lichtenstein, Rauschenberg, Hockney, and Johns highlight Moran’s California Living sale March 26

LOS ANGELES— John Moran Auctioneers‘ first California Living sale of 2024 features the Marmor family collection, which focused on art of the 1960s and 1970s, including works by Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, David Hockney, and Jasper Johns. The sale also has pieces by Sam Maloof, Jonathan Adler, and other mid-century icons. The complete catalog is now open for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

Drs. Judd and Katherine Marmor were well acquainted in the LA art scene during the last half of the 20th century. They forged connections with modern and contemporary artists such as William N. Copley, George Herms, Ed Kienholz, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Frank Stella, and H. C. Westermann. The couple built a large collection of prints and assemblages, were founding members of the Museum of Contemporary Art, and were long-time supporters of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Through their acumen and purchases from artists’ studios and galleries, their collection represents a microcosm of Los Angeles art from this influential period.

Leading the offerings in the Marmor collection is a steel sculpture by Sir Anthony Alfred Caro, Table Piece CCCLXXIII. Caro (1924-2013) was an English abstract sculptor whose work is characterized by assemblages of metal using found industrial objects. Considered one of the greatest British sculptors of his generation, Caro’s 1977 work carries a $40,000-$60,000 estimate.

Peter Alexander (1939-2020) was a member of the Light and Space artist movement in 1960s-era Southern California. Notable for his resin sculptures, the Moran sale includes his Grey Wedge, a 1969 floor sculpture that tapers from a smoky black to a clear resin. It is estimated at $20,000-$30,000.

Highlighting the selection of fine art is Jade Hole, a 1980 work by Robert Rauschenberg (1925-2008). He is known for his groundbreaking work in printmaking and photography, inspiring countless innovations and pushing the boundaries of what was possible in the realm of contemporary art. Estimated at $40,000-$60,000, Jade Hole is an example of Rauschenberg’s use of his own photography and multi-media processes, a testament to his commitment to innovation and experimentation.

One of the artists the Marmors befriended was an influential figure in the post-war art world: William Copley (1919-1996). Renowned for his vibrant and audacious pieces that challenged conventional artistic norms, Copley’s body of work is a rich tapestry of narrative compositions, featuring curvilinear figures, bold contours, and a vibrant palette of colors. His legacy is a vital link between European Surrealism and American Pop art, and his Haut Boy from 1970 is estimated at $30,000-$50,000.

Jasper Johns’ Light Bulb from his 1969 Lead Reliefs series is estimated at $20,000-$30,000. The relief is a profound exploration of American cultural symbols encapsulated in lead, revealing the artist’s enduring fascination with mundane objects and their transformation into potent symbols of meaning. The series encapsulates Johns’ lifelong endeavor to destabilize and recontextualize the ordinary, transforming “things the mind already knows” into objects of contemplation and intrigue. At the heart of this piece lies the enigmatic presence of the light bulb, a motif that recurs throughout Johns’ career as a symbol of illumination and artistic creation. The Light Bulb lead relief represents a pivotal moment in Johns’ artistic evolution, showcasing his mastery of medium and his relentless pursuit of visual and conceptual complexity.

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) was another artist the Marmors were fortunate to have in their social circle. The couple’s vast print collection included many Lichtensteins, 16 of which are featured in this sale. Among the offerings are CRAK! from 1964, estimated at $15,000-$20,000; multiple works from his 1969 Haystack Series and 1972’s Mirror Series, each estimated at $8,000-$12,000; and examples from his 1970 Modern Head series, with  estimates ranging from $10,000-$20,000. Lichtenstein’s Modern Head series, created in the 1970s, stands as a critical dismantling of the history of Modern Art. This series represents a shift in Lichtenstein’s approach, moving away from mass-produced imagery towards the appropriation of stylistic conventions and specific works of Modern masters, including Picasso, Monet, Matisse, and Mondrian. Each work in the Modern Head series was produced using a distinct commercial printing process, including woodcut, lithography, line-cut, embossing, and die-cut paper overlay.

NEW YORK — More than 80 lots of fine art prints, some signed by the artist, are ready to frame and decorate the home or office in Jasper52‘s Visual Odyssey: Contemporary Fine Art sale, slated for Tuesday, January 16 and starting at 8 pm Eastern time. The catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

One of the most prolific artists of the 20th century was Salvador Dali (1904-1989). So strong was the demand for his works that he essentially pioneered the art print category, issuing numerous reproductions of his originals and adding edition numbering and his signature for extra value. Crazy, Crazy, Crazy Minerv is a 1971 edition, numbered 151 of 175 and signed by Dali. It comes from the portfolio Memories of Surrealism published by the Transworld Art Corporation of New York and carries a $11,000-$13,000 estimate.

David Drome is a modern Surrealist whose Surreal Constellation was released as a 200-print edition in 1970. This example is numbered 115 and features his trademark use of vibrant color and perspective. It is estimated at $350-$400.

Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997) was an icon of the Pop Art movement that combined elements from popular culture into fine art. This poster from the Metropolitan Museum of Art features his classic half-tone dot patterns with elements of Surrealism and comic book art. It is estimated at $3,000-$3,500.

BOSTON — For decades, Portia Harcus (1934-2022) was an esteemed Boston gallerist, championing new talent and helping them find new audiences through exhibitions and personal relationships with both clients and artists. Her recent passing has brought her personal collection to light at Grogan & Co. Its Saturday, October 28 sale titled The Collection of Portia Harcus shows the keen and patient eye of a seasoned art dealer and collector. The catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

Harcus was a fan of Roy Lichtenstein (1923-1997), and the sale reflects that fact with eight items from his lengthy output. The lot with the highest estimate in the group and the sale overall is Lamp, a 1981 woodcut in colors signed and dated by Lichtenstein and numbered 1/30. It is estimated at $10,000-$20,000.

Another top lot is the River of Ponds III lithograph by Frank Stella (b. 1936-), which was a clear favorite of Harcus — she was photographed with this very piece in the image used for her obituary. River of Ponds III is from the Newfoundland series and is signed and dated 1971 and numbered 49/75. It carries an estimate of $8,000-$12,000.

Harcus was a collector of fine and historic photography as well. Animal Locomotion by Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) is a composite print showing two series of timed sequential images of athletes leap-frogging one another. Undated but probably from the 1880s or 1890s, the print is estimated at $200-$400.

Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971) is one of the most celebrated photojournalists in American history. She took the photo used for the first issue of Life magazine, she captured the Depression-era soup line image Kentucky Flood, and as the first woman war correspondent, she was first to photograph liberated Nazi concentration camps. Her Workers at American Woolen Company silver gelatin print from the Harcus collection shows the genius of her work, combining humanity with the patterns of mechanical automation. It is estimated at $800-$1,200.
