Lot 13: JOSEF ALBERS - Original color silkscreen

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Josef Albers (German/American, 1888 - 1976). "Never Before (f) (miniature edition) [from: Never Before]". Original color silkscreen. 1976. Bears signature in pencil and dated, lower right. Probably a PP or TP from the edition of unknown size, presumed small. White wove paper. Full margins as issued. Fine impression. Fine condition; tipped to the original support, as issued. Literature/catalogue raisonne: Danilowitz 231.6. Provenance: Tyler Graphics, Mount Kisco, New York. The print is accompanied by the original promotional cover issued as an announcement for the edition. Hand printed silkscreen miniature published by Tyler Graphics Ltd. as part of a promotional brochure advertising the "Never Before" portfolio. The ?Never Before? series is based on a theme Albers first explored in 1949 in the painting ?Indicating Solids? and again took up in 1971 in the large oil ?Never Before.? Albers and the Tyler workshop used a collage system to work out the colors for each of the twelve prints in the portfolio, which all have the same format reduced from the 1971 painting. Tyler made cut-outs in numerous sample inks of the different sections of the five-color scheme. Albers then juxtaposed them, making over 100 collages before he came up with his twelve solutions. He started in the center and then determined the outer colors, reminiscent of the way his father had taught him to paint a door so that he never dirtied his cuffs. The workshop printed each color directly on the white paper, fitting in all five parts with perfect registration. Image copyright © The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation - Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Overall size: 7 3/4 x 8 1/8 in. (197 x 206 mm). Image size: 4 1/2 x 4 7/8 in. (114 x 124 mm).

YURI PAVLOVICH ANNENKOV - Mixed Media on paper, mounted on board

Lot 31: YURI PAVLOVICH ANNENKOV - Mixed Media on paper, mounted on board

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Yuri Pavlovich Annenkov (Russian, 1889-1974). "Constructivist Composition (Reklame-Verkauf)". Mixed Media on paper, mounted on board. 1921. Signed and dated in pen in the image, lower right. Composed with oil, watercolor, gouache, and crayon, painted on a single sheet of newspaper ("Le Nouveau Journal de Strasbourg" October 1920 issue). The sheet is mounted to a firm but flexible contemporary board. Provenance: Private collection, Kentfield, California; formerly collection George Wittenborn, Wittenborn Art Books, New York City, sold in the 1950s; acquired by Wittenborn during or shortly after the second of the Adolfo Muller-Ury estate sales at the Plaza Art Galleries in New York City in December, 1947. The second sale included material from consignors in addition to the Muller-Ury estate. It is doubtful that the picture was owned by Muller-Ury; rather, a different consignor in the second Plaza sale. As the noted art historian Stephen Conrad has indicated about this painting, "The fact that it [our example] appeared in the second of his [Muller-Ury's] estate sales at the Plaza Art Galleries in New York in December 1947 is not proof of his ownership, the reason being that many lots in these sales were from other vendors...It remains highly unlikely that he [Muller-Ury] would have owned anything as modern as this constructivist work, as he is on record in the 1940s as saying, 'The saddest thing on God's earth is modern art?'". While Annenkov is best known for his portraits, like other Russian artists of his time he was influenced by the Constructivist movement, the artistic and architectural force that originated in Russia in 1919. Our rare and superb example of Annenkov?s Constructivist oeuvre was painted at the froth of that movement. Overall size: (board) 17 5/8 x 13 3/4 in. (448 x 349 mm). Image size: 17 5/8 x 12 5/8 in. (448 x 321 mm). [24951] |35000| {R100}

Condition Report: Composed with oil, watercolor, gouache, and crayon, painted on a single sheet of newspaper ("Le Nouveau Journal de Strasbourg" October 1920 issue). The sheet is mounted to a firm but flexible contemporary board.

The original copper plates [of these three] were discovered by the artist's widow in 1966 at his atelier in Woodstock, New York. These plates were in sufficiently good condition to permit posthumous editions to be printed, since only one life-time proof was known of "Bending," two of "Angelica," and none of "Kneeling." These three editions were printed in New York by Miss Judith Foster in 1967, under the supervision of the artist's estate." Donald Karshan, "Archipenko: The Sculpture and Graphic Art."

Provenance: Through Mark Rothko; Private collection, New Canaan, Connecticut. An impressive example of Avery's landscape oeuvre. For a similar composition (1962) by Avery, please see "Mountain Landscape," sale at Bonhams & Butterfields New York, December 2, 2009, lot passed on presale estimates of $125,000/150,000. Avery's work is seminal to American abstract painting?while his images are clearly representational, they focus on color relations and are not concerned with creating the illusion of depth as most conventional Western painting since the Renaissance has. Avery was often thought of as an American Matisse, especially because of his colorful and innovative landscape paintings. His poetic, bold, and creative use of drawing and color set him apart from the more conventional painting of his era. Early in his career his work was considered too radical for being too abstract; when Abstract Expressionism became dominant his work sometimes was overlooked as being too representational. © Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York. Image size: 18 x 24 in. (457 x 610 mm). Frame size: 21 1/4 x 27 1/4 in. (540 x 692 mm). [25238] |8000| {R100}
