Martin Puryear Illus.,

Lot 19: Martin Puryear Illus., "Cane," San Francisco, 2000

by Auctionata US

March 30, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $720 - $900

Description: Martin Puryear (1941- ) - American sculptor, respected for his craftsmanshipJean Toomer (1894-1967) -American authorSan Francisco: Arion Press, 2000Signed and limited edition of 400 copiesComplete set of 10 woodcuts, comprising title page, text by Jean Toomer, table of contents, and justification, the prints on Kitakata Japon paperIn original tan linen publisher's cloth binding with brown cloth tie-downs, with black title on front and spineOblong format; 11 ½ x 13 7/8 in.Very goodJean Toomer's, "Cane," is regarded the highest literary achievement of the Harlem Renaissance. It was first published early in Toomer's career in 1923 to critical acclaim though few copies sold. The novel was rediscovered in the 1960s with the rise in academic interest in African American history and culture. This later edition is illustrated by Washington D.C. artist Martin Puryear, who discovered the novel while teaching at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. For, "Cane," Puryear created woodcuts in two sizes. The seven larger works are abstract portraits of female characters in the book, while the three smaller images are reinterpretations of the enigmatic arcs that the author originally placed on pages dividing sections in the first edition. This newer edition is signed by Puryear and is part of an edition of 400.The book is in very good condition and is in oblong format.Jean Toomer (Washington D.C. 1894-1967 Doylestown, Pennsylvania)Jean Toomer was born Nathan Toomer to his father of the same name, a mixed-race freedman born into slavery, and Nina Pinchback, a wealthy mixed-race woman. Toomer received the 'Jean' from his grandfather after his father abandoned the family. Growing up in Washington, D.C., Toomer attended segregated black schools. Between 1914 and 1917, he attended six higher education institutions studying agriculture, fitness, biology, sociology and history, but never completed a degree. However, he read many works by prominent contemporary poets and writers, which shaped the direction of his writing. Some of Toomer's early writing was political, publishing three essays between 1919 and 1920 in the prominent socialist newspaper 'New York Call.' The essays drew from the socialist and 'New Negro' movements in New York. Being of mixed-race, Toomer resisted racial classifications and wanted to be identified only as American, gaining experience in both Caucasian and African-American societies. He sought to transcend the standard definitions of race. In 1923 while living in New York, Toomer published his most successful novel, "Cane," which was edited by friend and prolific American novelist and social critic Waldo Frank. For the next few years, Toomer travelled to France for periods of study with spiritual leader George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff who inspired his later works. Toomer was no longer exploring African-American characters but producing works related to his spiritual quest. Later in life, he studied works by Carl Jung, the mystic Edgar Cayce and the Church of Scientology. By 1940, Toomer had moved to Doylestown, Pennsylvania where he and his wife formally joined the Quakers, withdrawing from society. He spent most of his time there serving on Quaker committees for community service and teaching high school students. Toomer stopped writing for publication after 1950, only writing for himself, including several autobiographies. He died in 1968 after years of poor health. Martin Puryear (Washington D.C. 1941- )Sculptor and traditional craftman, Martin Puryear was educated at Catholic University in Fine Arts, the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts in Stockholm and Yale University for sculpture. He also spent two years in the Peace Corps in Sierra Leone where he learned local woodworking. His first solo exhibition was at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. in 1977. Since then, Puryear has exhibited his work internationally, with public commissions in Europe, Japan and the United States. In 1989, he received a MacArthur Foundation award and in 2007, he received the Gold Medal in Sculpture by the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Recently, Puryear has been awarded the Presidential Medal of the Arts.

In the early 1940s, Jones had already begun a successful career as a painter with her inclusion in exhibitions at the Phillips Collection, the National Academy of Design, the Barnett-Aden Gallery in Washington, DC, and the Institute of Modern Art in Boston. In 1945, Jones received a BA degree in art education, magna cum laude, from Howard University. Earlier in 1941, she painted another local beach scene Indian Shops, Gay Head, Massachusetts, 1940. Now in the collection of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the painting received the Robert Woods Bliss Award for Landscape from the The Society of Washington Artists at the Corcoran Gallery.

by Heritage Auctions

March 28, 2015, 1:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $600 - $1,200

Description: What Women Love (First National, 1920). Norwegian One Sheet (25.5" X 34.5"). Annette Kellerman was the swimming sensation of Australia in the first decade of the 20th Century, but is most well known for advocating a woman's right to wear a one piece bathing suit. The popularity of the "Kellerman" suit was so controversial at the time, she was arrested for indecency in Boston in 1907 for donning the creation. Kellerman was a distance swimmer, diver, theatrical performer, mermaid, feminist, fitness advocate and an internationally acclaimed silent movie star. The aquatic goddess was often referred to as the "Diving Venus," as her measurements closely mirrored those of the Venus de Milo. A Heritage first, this is the Norwegian one sheet from the melodrama What Women Love. Artist Niels Pedersen Rohder brings water nymph Kellerman to sun-kissed life in vibrant, stone litho color. Left and right edge wear, small chips in the bottom right corner, and creasing in the left border are the only signs of handling detected. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.

KHALIL IBRAHIM (b. 1934), Recycling Nude, 1965, Oil on canvas

Lot 54: KHALIL IBRAHIM (b. 1934), Recycling Nude, 1965, Oil on canvas

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR40,000 - MYR60,000

Description: An early abstract piece dated 1965 by one of Malaysia's celebrated artists Khalil Ibrahim, Recycling Nude was conceived perhaps upon his return from United Kingdom. Inspired by the glorious Swinging London scene of the sixties, this jovial abstract piece illustrates organic swirling shapes in a cheerful palette of yellow, red, blue and green signifying a sense of liberation. Intense swirls in tangerine and red dominate the upper part of the canvas while the lower section is loosely painted in various shapes and colours to achieve a soothing effect, complementing the entire composition in harmony. Khalil Ibrahim graduated with a National Diploma of Design in Fine Arts at the prestigious St. Martin's School of Art and Design in London in 1964 (post-graduate in 1965). He turned into a full-time artist in 1966. Khalil was a co-founder of the Malaysian Watercolour Society and had his first double solo of London works and Malaysian batiks at Samat Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 1970. That year, he also had a solo exhibition in Indonesia, the first Malaysian to have done so. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Switzerland and his works have been collected by the National Museum in Singapore, Fukuoka Museum of Art in Japan, New South Wales Museum of Art in Sydney and the Royal National Art Gallery of Jordan.

Lot 9: BUI XUAN PHAI (b. 1921 - d. 1988), LADY WITH FLOWERS, Undated, mixed media on paper

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR4,000 - MYR6,000

Description: Illustrated here is a rich and vibrant drawing of a Vietnamese woman identified by her distinctive áo dài attire in the design of pink tunic with red floral prints worn over plain white trousers. She stands gracefully holding a bouquet of yellow flowers arranged amidst green leaves on one arm while the other hand is placed comfortably on her thigh. A unique depiction of figure, this energetically hued drawing by Vietnamese national treasure Bui Xuan Phai is another charming variation to his cityscape paintings. Bui Xuan Phai was enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux Arts d'Indochine, Hanoi in 1941 and graduated from the resistance school when it was moved to Viet Bac in 1945. He opened a studio in his parents' house in Hanoi in 1952 where he sketched portraits of his family, still-lifes and the streets of Hanoi instead of producing Propaganda Art, which was meant for national cause at the time. His depictions of Hanoi reflect the spirit and freedom of the people. A celebrated Vietnamese artist, Phai experimented with different materials such as canvas, paper, cardboard, wooden plates and newsprint. He also used various mediums like oil, watercolor, pastel, charcoal and crayon. Phai's first solo exhibition was held in 1984 where 108 of his works were displayed. He was posthumously awarded the Ho Chi Minh Prize by the government of Vietnam for his contribution to national culture in 1996.

AMRON OMAR (b. 1957), Farah, 2013, Pastel on paper

Lot 36: AMRON OMAR (b. 1957), Farah, 2013, Pastel on paper

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR10,000 - MYR15,000

Description: On offer here is a figurative pastel drawing of a young woman dressed in contemporary white blouse and blue jeans named Farah as the title suggests. Seated demurely, this elegant drawing is a shift from the masculinity of silat warriors, a testament to his flair in painting the human figure. The late Datuk Syed Ahmad Jamal once remarked on Amron's ability to capture the human anatomy when viewing his first work from his iconic Pertarungan (The Duel) series in 1980: "From the world of advanced arrangement of forms that is distinguished from other painters of human figures in other countries, making him significant among other anatomical painters in this country. His paintings represent his good training." Amron Omar was among the earliest result of Institut Teknologi Mara (ITM). The Art and Design Faculty students in the 1970s were greatly influenced by western style painting as their lecturers were trained in the West. There were two events that changed the course of Malaysian art during this period: the 'Kongres Kebudayaan Kebangsaan' in 1971 (National Culture Congress) and 'Seminar Akar-Akar Pribumi' (Seminar on Roots of the Native) in 1979 which increased the interest among local artists towards the aesthetics of Islamic and traditional arts, particularly Amron's interest in projecting a narrative through the glorious movements of silat since 1980 as a celebration of Malay culture and heroism. More than 150 works from Amron Omar's Pertarungan series over three decades were displayed at the National Visual Arts Gallery, Kuala Lumpur in 2012. He worked briefly for an advertising company upon graduation but decided to paint full-time in 1983, specialising in portraits for royalty, dignitaries, corporate captains of industry and also the commoner. He won the Minor Award in the Young Contemporary Artists competition in 1982 with a self-portrait. REFERENCE Pertarungan - Amron Omar , National Visual Arts Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, 2012.

Fred Cuming RA (b.1930) British Winter Sea

Lot 127: Fred Cuming RA (b.1930) British Winter Sea

by Morgan O'Driscoll

Skibbereen, Ireland

Estimated Price: €2,500 - €3,500

Description: Fred Cuming RA (b.1930) British Winter Sea oil on board signed lower left h:50.50  w:61 cm. Provenance: Jorgensen Fine Art, Dublin (label verso) Private Collection Fred Cuming was born in London in 1930 of English, Irish and Scottish ancestory. He received his art education at Sidcup School of Art and at the Royal College of Art in 1951-1955. He was awarded the Abbey Minor Travelling Scholarship to visit Italy. He was elected a Royal Academician (RA) in 1974. He is also a member of the New English Art Club. As well as continuing to paint Italian scenes, including Venice, he still devotes much time to the landscape of the Southern English coastline, including Hastings and Rye. His art has an impressionist quality which captures "the fleeting impressions of his surroundings."He first encountered such landscapes as a child evacuee during the Blitz. The powerful contrast to his home in London created an enduring love for it. In 1996 he was commissioned to paint a portrait of Stephen Hawkins which now hangs in the National Portrait Gallery, London. Cuming was honoured in 2001 with being the featured artist in the R.A. Summer Exhibition with an entire gallery dedicated to his work. He has continued to exhibit in many galleries and in solo exhibitions throughout the UK.

RUSTAMADJI SURABAYA (b. 1932 - d. 1990), Bakar Jagung, 1979, Oil on canvas

Lot 35: RUSTAMADJI SURABAYA (b. 1932 - d. 1990), Bakar Jagung, 1979, Oil on canvas

by Henry Butcher Art Auctioneers

March 29, 2015, 1:00 PM SGT

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Estimated Price: MYR12,000 - MYR18,000

Description: Illustrated here is an Indonesian street scene depicting a couple of Indonesian women peeling and roasting corn on a makeshift stove. Roasted corn is one of Indonesia's popular street snacks besides satay and rojak. Rustamadji Surabaya demonstrates his observant nature by portraying a typical vendor stall on canvas executed in a Realist mode of painting. His warm colour palette of brown and sepia tones exudes a nostalgic and romantic sentiment to this eloquently painted piece. Rustamadji Surabaya painted in the manner of Realism and naturalistic style from the 1940s to the 1960s focusing on themes of daily life and experiences familiar to the people of Indonesia, a subject that reflected feelings of nationalism. His works are egalitarian conveying messages of social, economic and political equality for the people. He often depicts figures, landscapes, and market scenes and dancers. His proficiency in presenting detailed forms, treatment of light and shadow, and setting the mood of a subject is based on his acute observation on the realities of life. In 1946 Rustamadji began painting under the painter S. Sudjojono in Sanggar Indonesia Muda (Young Indonesian Artists Association), Madiun.
