Life Is Short-Mixed Media Original-Renata

Lot 485: Life Is Short-Mixed Media Original-Renata

by Nova Art Auctions

November 8, 2014, 10:30 AM PST

Vista, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $4,500 - $5,700

Description: 1 of 1.Life Is Short. -Original Mixed media on canvas. Includes Certificate of Authenticity Signed by The Artist. Measurements Approx. 18" x 14"

Condition Report: Excellent Condition-Renata was born in Mexico City on February 8, 1966. The second of six siblings whose passion for the arts is clear and evident. As a child she felt a great love and attraction for the arts, but the fear of their parents to not be a lucrative career, would lead her to the Faculty of medicine, which would leave for marriage and motherhood. Countless changes of residence and in her life did it not continue with her career, but until the year 1998 when in Australia, had the opportunity to study and graduate in Visual Arts at the Chisholm Institute in Melbourne, under the tutelage of the South African artist David Trout, in where she gained recognition for his early work, obtaining several awards at various exhibitions including his solo exhibition, shortly before her return to Mexico.Her works are mainly figurative which lead us to a romantic almost naive dream, where his life and its internal recognition are caught between warm colours, feelings, and new experiences, that capture the viewer and transport it in her enigmatic, sensual air and with a lot of symbolic language. Her compositions speak directly to the viewer and not about angst or pain.

Russian Iwan Garikow 1968, Oil canvas: Nude on River

Lot 396: Russian Iwan Garikow 1968, Oil canvas: Nude on River

by Eternity Gallery

November 16, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

Tampa, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $8,000

Description: Iwan Garikow 1968, Oil on canvas: Nude on the river. Artist: Iwan Garikow, Iwan Garikow was born in Russia in 1918; Moved to USA; Died in 1982, USA; Oil on canvas: Nude on the river, painted in 1968; unframed; Height of the stretcher: 36 inches = 3 feet = 90 cm Width of the stretcher: 30 3/8 inches = 76 cm It has to be said Garikow was one of the most important Russian artists of the 20th century as he was the last formally trained artist at Repin Academy in 1941. One Garikow's painting sold at a charity auction in Alabama for $10,000 in 2008 Iwan Garikow painted about 250 works in his lifetime, 200 are owned by the Garikow's collection and a further 25 in private collections, leaving only about 25 on the open market of which you could own this one. Please, visit a website for Garikow's collection in USA www.garikow.com Ivan Garikow: A Russian Artist's Unique Perspective Ivan Garikow, born in Belaya Glina, a small town in the Russian Empire, in 1918 spent the better portion of his addled twentieth-century life making paintings. Though Garikow's career spanned from his early teens in Russia to the end of his life in 1982 in Philadelphia, PA, his style always remained distinctly, traditionally Russian. At first glance one may dismiss the collection as amateurish or uneven, but when digested as a whole and viewed through the lens of the brand of Nationalism apparent in Garikow's biography, the true art historian's eye acknowledges a valuable and worthwhile collection. Garikow grew up in a small town in the Soviet Union while his family valued religion during the time in Russia when the modus operandi of Communism was just beginning. He had one brother and his family lived in virtual poverty, but they maintained a relatively peaceful family life during a politically tumultuous, transitional period in Russian history. His early exposure to rural and small town settings and the firsthand experience of peasant life surely influenced not only his choice of subject matter in his future paintings, but also his naive personal style. One sees the delightful combination of his childhood environment and the future study of great masters like Vincent van Gogh (notice the thick, dark outlines) in the painting #0103 Belaya Glina. In fact, the setting of Garikow's childhood home and the period of history in which he lived, with its limited outlets for community socializing and lack of technology - there were no McDonald's or Nintendo's, after all - probably gave the child Garikow a better opportunity to hone his interests in drawing and painting. Teachers noticed Garikow's inclinations and his artistic talent during his early primary school years, and eventually Garikow received his training as a painter at The Arts Academy, or what is formally known today as Ilya Repin St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Russia. The Academy, founded in 1757 by Ivan Shuvalov, the first Russian minister of the Arts, was later renamed after the artist Ilya Repin whose style embodied the teachings of The Academy. When he was 18 years old Garikow submitted his work to The Academy for consideration. After he received his acceptance, Garikow left his home for the school and matriculated at Repin Academy from 1937-41 under pretty dire circumstances. As recounted by Ivan's sister-in-law to biographer Steven M. Nesbit, Garikow often ate little or no food and he had to sneak back into the academy's classroom in order to sleep with a roof over his head. He slept on a classroom floor with six or eight other students most evenings. Although many students enrolled came from families who were wealthy, many were not. To learn and study what they loved, many Repin Academy students endured many hardships.<br /> <strong>Condition</strong> Fine, no defects, unframed;<br /> Low Estimate: 2000;<br /> High Estimate: 8000;<br /> Style: Impressionism;<br /> Signed: Yes;<br /> Medium: Oil Paint;<br /> Year: 1968;

Estimated Price: $4,800 - $6,700

Description: 1 of 1. Regeneration-by Renata Lledias. -Original Mixed media on canvas. Includes Certificate of Authenticity Signed by The Artist. Measurements Approx. 18" x 14"

Condition Report: Excellent Condition-Renata was born in Mexico City on February 8, 1966. The second of six siblings whose passion for the arts is clear and evident. As a child she felt a great love and attraction for the arts, but the fear of their parents to not be a lucrative career, would lead her to the Faculty of medicine, which would leave for marriage and motherhood. Countless changes of residence and in her life did it not continue with her career, but until the year 1998 when in Australia, had the opportunity to study and graduate in Visual Arts at the Chisholm Institute in Melbourne, under the tutelage of the South African artist David Trout, in where she gained recognition for his early work, obtaining several awards at various exhibitions including his solo exhibition, shortly before her return to Mexico.Her works are mainly figurative which lead us to a romantic almost naive dream, where his life and its internal recognition are caught between warm colours, feelings, and new experiences, that capture the viewer and transport it in her enigmatic, sensual air and with a lot of symbolic language. Her compositions speak directly to the viewer and not about angst or pain.

ROYAL PANOPTICON OF SCIENCE AND ART

Lot 495: ROYAL PANOPTICON OF SCIENCE AND ART

by Boone Shares - The Scripophily Center

November 1, 2014, 10:30 AM CET

Brussels, Belgium

Estimated Price: €100 - €200

Description: 21 February 1851 Share. black, purple seal. No 3990. One of the most decorative of English shares, with very ornate border and delicate vignettes of lady artists. The Royal Panopticon opened in 1854 and closed in 1857, on the site now occupied by the Odeon cinema, Leicester Square, London. The life of the Panopticon began in 1850, when Edward Clarke, an Irishman with experience of making exhibitions, formed this company, with a capital of £80.000. Building began in 1851; the home of the Panopticon was a vast circular building in exotic, Moorish style, 97m high. There were three exhibition halls for showing works of art, and industrial products were on show. The centre was taken up with an enormous and splendid organ, a great fountain, and other attractions for visitors. It opened in 1854 and was a great success. However, it was badly managed and lacked a real purpose. It closed in 1857, and the building, which had cost £80.000 to build, was sold by auction for £9.000 to a theatre company. Under the new owners it was called the Alhambra Palace, and circuses were held there. Trimmed left border.
