In Addition, His Work Is In The Permanent Collection Of The Prestigious Gilcrease Museum. ?i Do Not See Myself As A Biographer Of The Cowboy. I Know Some Artists Feel They Are Recording History On The Ranches As Life There Is Today, But The Focus Of My Work Has Always Been Mood And Passion. If I?m Recording Anything, I?m Recording How I Feel About The West. I Want The Viewer To Feel The Drama Of Atmosphere And The Mystery Of A Western Night. I Want The Volume And Portent Of A Cloud To Be Evident In The Calligraphy Of A Brushstroke. The Pack Of Muscle Below A Horse?s Shoulder Should Be Energized By A Gestural Application Of Paint. ?you See, I Love To Paint. And I Love The American West. I Was Born In Chicago, But The Sierra Nevada, Sangre De Cristo, Sawatch And A Hundred Other Ranges Of Our Rocky Mountains Were The Only ?big Shoulders? I Was Ever Interested In. Walking Thunderstorms, Sunstruck Cedars, Rimrock And Artfully Abstract Water Patterns Charge The Landscape With Impossible Beauty. ?amidst This Nobility Is Its Caretaker: The Rancher. With The Natural Ease Of Generations Bred To The Saddle, He Is A Powerful Image Further Ennobled By A Fine Horse. An Artist Under The Spell Of The West Has The Privilege Of Marshalling The Virtues Of Landscape, Figure Andequine Painting Into One Supremely Paintable Subject: The American Cowboy.? - Bill Anton

by Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo

July 26, 2014, 3:00 PM CET

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Estimated Price: €2,000 - €3,000

Description: OSCAR DOMINGUEZ (1906-1957) Felis añoTechnique mixte sur papier Signée et titrée au verso Cachet de la vente de l'atelier Oscar Dominguez au verso 23,5 x 30 cm Provenance Vente de l'Atelier Oscar Dominguez, Étude de Maître Rheims, Hotel Drouot, 1967 Ces deux encres de chine sont réalisées sur papier fort selon le procédé de "La décalcomanie sans objet préconçu" inventé par l'artiste en 1935 et repris notamment par Max Ernst ou Hans Bellmer. Cette technique, également nommée "décalcomanie du désir", consiste en une pression d'une feuille (ou d'une plaque de verre) encrée ou gouachée sur une autre. André Breton, dont L' Anthologie de l'humour noir est illustrée de telles décalcomanies, y voit le point de départ de "l'automatisme absolu" si cher au Mouvement Surréaliste. "La découverte d'Oscar Dominguez porte sur la méthode à suivre pour obtenir des champs d'interprétations idéaux dans les images qui suivent... Il s'agit, une fois de plus, d'une recette à la portée de tous qui demande à être incorporée aux 'secrets de l'art magique surréaliste." (A. Breton in Le Surréalisme et la peinture).

Estimated Price: €4,000 - €6,000

Description: MIMMO ROTELLA (1918-2006) Sans titre, 1957Collages et lacérations d'affiches marouflés sur toile Signée et datée en bas à gauche 42 x 42 cmProvenance Acquis par l'actuel prioritaire directement auprès de l'artiste. Premier artiste en 1954 à réaliser des affiches lacérées directement prélevées sur les murs de la ville de Rome. Il arrache des tracts des murs, les reporte sur toile, aussi bien en positif qu'en négatif, et à nouveau les lacère, cette dernière intervention signalant un « geste de protestation contre la société qui a perdu le goût du changement ». Ces décollages, que Rotella effectue sans connaître les démarches contemporaines de Hains et Villeglé, constituent sa façon personnelle de participer au climat de l'informel : ils sont en effet abstraits.

ROBERT COMBAS (Né en 1957)

Lot 67: ROBERT COMBAS (Né en 1957)

by Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo

July 26, 2014, 3:00 PM CET

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Estimated Price: €3,000 - €4,000

Description: ROBERT COMBAS (Né en 1957) La chaise à Khaled, qu'il a vendu, 1993Technique mixte Pièce unique 98 x 40 x 48 cm L'oeuvre de Robert Combas est un mélange de ses goûts et de différentes inspirations. Son travail se caractérise par la couleur, le dessin noir cernant les figures, l'absence de volume et de perspective. Ses thèmes de prédilection sont la violence, la joie, le sexe, le spirituel, la souffrance, les petits bonheurs, le religieux, la musique. « Pour moi, une toile peut être influencée par des publicistes naïfs Africains, par l'illustration de livres d'école primaire, mélangée à Picasso ou à Miró, ou alors un dessin genre BD, plus de fausses écritures arabes, plus une peinture brute, très Dubuffet ou Cobra. La figuration libre est une peinture qui ne renie pas ses instincts primitifs et une volonté de culture. Le Dadaïsme, l'Art Brut, l'Art Nègre, celui des peintres publicistes naïfs d'Haïti, d'Afrique, d'Amérique du Sud, de Jamaïque, l'Art Naïf, l'Art pauvre, le Rock and Roll, la Rock culture, l'art des inadaptés (mongoliens), Picasso, l'Expressionnisme, la BD. On mélange tout et on trouve Combas, figuratif « parce que je vis dans un monde de réalités. Je trouve en revanche que le message de mes peintures est abstrait. C'est un mélange d'images, de couleurs, de fausses écritures asiatiques, arabes, sud-américaines, une peinture qui est un essai vers un langage universel. »

Modèle similaire reproduit en couleur page 112. Catalogue de l'exposition des Galeries nationales du Grand Palais, Design contre design, deux siècles de créations, 26 septembre - 7 janvier 2008. Modèle similaire reproduit en couleur page 310. Connu pour ses oeuvres entièrement réalisées avec des matériaux de récupération, Tejo Remy est un architecte néerlandais, décorateur d'intérieur et designer, né en 1960. Sa carrière débuta au sein du groupe Droog Design. Son esprit créatif lui permit de faire évoluer les mentalités : ses inventions de bon goût, pratiques et ludiques eurent une influence notable sur la façon d'appréhender, de réutiliser et de s'approprier les objets qui nous entourent. La chaise de chiffon, présentée en 1993, fut une innovation majeure basée sur la superposition de tissus simplement attachés par des sangles. Ce concept de matériaux reliés entre eux de façon presque aléatoire fut repris par le système de tiroirs posés bizarrement les uns au-dessus des autres. L'art contemporain commençait alors à utiliser le recyclage comme méthode de travail.

DA VID AL FARO SIQUEIROS (1864-1974)

Lot 105: DA VID AL FARO SIQUEIROS (1864-1974)

by Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo

July 26, 2014, 3:00 PM CET

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Estimated Price: €20,000 - €30,000

Description: DA VID AL FARO SIQUEIROS (1864-1974) Un personaje importante, circa 1957/58Acrylique sur panneau Signée en bas à droite 100 x 80 cmBibliographie Une attestation d'Adriana Siqueiros en date du 3 mars 2010 sera remise à l'acquéreur. David Alfaro Siqueiros naît à Chihuahua (Nord du Mexique) en 1896. Il a 13 ans quand ses parents partent s'installer à México. Comme Orozco, il est étudiant à l'école des Beaux-arts de Mexico, anciennement Académie «San Carlos», ainsi qu'à l'école de Peinture Santa Anita. Comme beaucoup d'autres jeunes, c'est un idéaliste qui ne supporte plus la dictature étouffante de Porfirio Díaz. En 1914, il décide de s'engager aux côtés des révolutionnaires. A 20 ans, il est sous-lieutenant de l'Armée Constitutionnaliste. Il reste quatre ans et devient gradé. Cette expérience guerrière le marquera profondément et influencera son oeuvre. Comme il le dira lui-même : «Sans cette participation à la Révolution, il n'aurait pas été possible plus tard de concevoir et de réaliser le mouvement pictural moderne mexicain». De cette révolution politique naîtra une révolution artistique qui se concrétisera dans les fresques de Siqueiros mais aussi dans celles de Rivera, d'Orozco, d'O'Gorman... En 1919, il part en Europe. Il visite Paris où il rencontre Diego Rivera qui s'y trouve déjà depuis quelques années. Cette amitié lui permet de rentrer dans les cercles artistiques parisien, alors en pleine ébullition. Il aiguise ainsi sa conscience politique et sociale au contact des théoriciens et des activistes de tous bords. En septembre 1922, on le retrouve à Barcelone, où il publie un «Manifeste pour un Art Révolutionnaire Mexicain». De retour au Mexique en 1939, il peint le «Portrait de la bourgeoisie» pour la Maison des syndicats de Mexico. Son oeuvre, d'un réalisme brutal, heurte certains de ses commanditaires. Peintures de luttes manichéennes, combats montrant mort, meurtre et souffrance.

by Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo

July 26, 2014, 3:00 PM CET

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Estimated Price: €30,000 - €40,000

Description: DIEGO RIVERA (1886-1957) Femme au fichu, 1907Huile sur toile Signée Datée en bas à droite 75 x 57 cmVéritable héros populaire en Amérique Latine et plus grand artiste du Mexique avec sa femme, la peintre Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera (1886-1957) mena une vie passionnante dédiée à l'art et au communisme. Après avoir passé les années 1910 en Europe où il se lie d'amitié avec plusieurs peintres dont Amadeo Modigliani et Pablo Picasso et embrasse le mouvement cubiste, il retourne au Mexique où il peindra les fresques murales monumentales qui le rendront célèbre. Visant à servir la cause révolutionnaire, son art au service du peuple lui vaut un statut de prophète auprès des paysans du Mexique. Invité à créer des oeuvres à l'étranger, notamment aux Etats-Unis, il provoque une controverse en incluant le portrait de Lénine dans sa fresque murale Homme au Carrefour, pour le Rockefeller Center à New York. Le mur fut détruit avant l'achèvement de la peinture. Detroit Industry (1932), un groupe gigantesque de 32 fresques au Detroit Institute of Arts (Michigan) est considéré comme l'oeuvre la plus remarquable de Rivera.

LUCIO FONTANA (1899-1968)

Lot 126: LUCIO FONTANA (1899-1968)

by Hôtel des Ventes de Monte-Carlo

July 26, 2014, 3:00 PM CET

Monte Carlo, Monaco

Estimated Price: €1,000,000 - €1,100,000

Description: LUCIO FONTANA (1899-1968) Concetto Spaziale, Attese, 1965/68Peinture à l'eau sur toile Signée et titré sur le revers «L.Fontana Concetto Spaziale Attese / Quando ritornerà la primavera andro a Comabbio Milano Sant'Erasmo Club d'Arte» 61 x 50 cmProvenance Galerie Pierre, Stockholm Dans les collections de l'actuel propriétaire depuis 40 ans. Bibliographie Enrico Crispolti, Lucio Fontana Catalogo Generale, Milan 1986, vol. I, n° 67T19, reproduit page 656. Notre tableau est reproduit sur la couverture du catalogue raisonné. Enrico Crispolti, Lucio Fontana Catalogue Raisonné des Peintures, Sculptures et Environments Spatiaux Rédigé, Brussels 1974, vol. II, reproduit page 188. Les très célèbres tableaux à entailles «tagli» de Fontana, sous-titrés par l'artiste Attese (c'est-àdire «Attentes»), exposés pour la première fois à Milan en 1958, puis à Paris (galerie Stadler) et à la Biennale de São Paulo en 1959, sont devenus emblématiques de l'ensemble de l'oeuvre de l'artiste. Les premières entailles apparaissent d'abord, vers 1957, au milieu de multiples perforations et déchirures dans des peintures à l'encre sur toile «inchiestri» et dans des peintures sur papier. À partir de 1958, elles occupent seules la toile et caractérisent la rupture de Fontana avec la gestualité «informelle» de la période des buchi. Délaissant les gestes qu'on imagine nombreux et compulsifs des tableaux à perforations, Fontana adopte un geste net, purifié, réduit à l'essentiel, matérialisant de la manière la plus simple l'idée principale de son oeuvre : la quête de l'infini par les moyens de l'art. «Mes entailles, dit l'artiste (dans une interview accordée à la revue Vanità, en 1962), sont pardessus tout une expression philosophique, un acte de foi dans l'infini, une affirmation de spiritualité. Quand je m'assois devant l'un de mes tagli, [...] je me sens un homme libéré de l'esclavage de la matière, un homme qui appartient à la grandeur du présent et du futur.» Il faut donc donner au terme Attesa [Attente] un sens double pour désigner à la fois la concentration maximale de l'artiste dans la préparation de son geste, et la contemplation par lui-même de la surface monochrome fendue, comme image de l'infini. Dans le cas du Concetto Spaziale, Attese, l'extrême économie de moyens, jointe à un extraordinaire raffinement de réalisation, contribue, au-delà de l'évidente connotation érotique de l'oeuvre, suggérée par la couleur rose, à faire percevoir avec la plus grande évidence ce que le critique Guido Ballo appellera «la paradoxale présence de l'absence». Extrait du catalogue Collection Art Moderne - La collection du Centre Pompidou, Musée National d'Art Moderne, sous la direction de Brigitte Leal, Paris, Centre Pompidou, 2007. Sculpteur, peintre, céramiste et théoricien italien, Lucio Fontana est né en 1899 en Argentine. Fils de sculpteur, il pratique le modelage dès son plus jeune âge. Après des études à l'Institut Technique d'Architecture de Milan en 1914-1915, il reçoit une formation classique à l'Académie de Brera. En 1922, il repart à Buenos Aires et s'initie à la technique de la taille directe dans l'atelier de son père. Alors qu'il est de retour en Italie en 1926, ses premières sculptures appartiennent alors à la tradition figurative du Novecento, dont l'esthétique fut récupérée par la politique culturelle de Mussolini. Dans les années trente, Fontana remet définitivement en cause le principe d'un art voué exclusivement à la figure et en 1935, il adhère au mouvement parisienAbstraction-Création. Dès lors, il entreprend une importante activité de céramiste et s'intéresse aux techniques les plus diverses recherchant de nouvelles formes d'expression plastique par l'utilisation de matériaux tels que la porcelaine, le béton ou les matières phosphorescentes. Réfugié en Argentine durant la guerre, il publie à Buenos Aires en 1946 le Manifeste Blanc, dans lequel il préconise «l'abandon de l'usage des formes connues de l'art pour le développement d'un art basé sur l'unité du temps et de l'espace». L'année suivante, il s'installe définitivement à Milan où il signe son Manifeste spatial déclarant que l'art doit être «fonction de nouvelles techniques et de moyens nouveaux», c'est-à-dire «évolutionnaires». À partir de 1949, Fontana donne à ses oeuvres le nom de Concetto Spaziale. Refusant de traiter la toile comme une simple surface plane destinée à recevoir la peinture, il en fait une sculpture abstraite bidimensionnelle: la toile devient le support de surfaces monochromes avant d'être transformée par des griffures, des entailles (Tagli) ou des perforations (Bucchi). Fontana opère désormais une ouverture physique de ses oeuvres, le support n'est plus à peindre ou à couvrir, il devient le réceptacle d'un acte premier et irréversible : «Je ne veux pas faire un tableau, je veux ouvrir l'espace, créer pour l'art une nouvelle dimension, le rattacher au cosmos, tel qu'il s'étend, infini, au-delà de la surface plate de l'image». Lucio Fontana, in «Manifesto Bianco», 1946, Buenos Aires.

Wertz finished in the Top 15 in MVP voting five times: 1949 (10th), 1950 (10th), 1956 (9th), 1957 (6th), and 1960 (14th).

Kinney, Jr., at Press of the Times, Oberlin, Ohio): ?For a brief time in the late 1950s, Lichtenstein was a latecomer to the abstract expressionist style. This is visible in his last two prints of that decade. Both were made for ?Polemic,? a literary-art journal published by the student council at Adelbert College, Western Reserve University (now part of Case Western Reserve), in Cleveland, Ohio.? No edition size is stated, but it is known that 2,000 copies were printed of the 1958 issue.

Lot 183: Warren Spahn Cut Signature Matted with a Photograph Certified by JSA James Spence Authentication

by Piedmont

July 26, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Description: JSA Warren Spahn cut signature matted with a Hall of Fame Postcard. This piece has a nice a blue on red double matting theme. Warren Edward Spahn (April 23, 1921 ? November 24, 2003) was an American Major League Baseball left-handed pitcher. He played his entire 21-year baseball career in the National League. He won 20 games or more in 13 seasons, including a 23?7 record when he was age 42. Spahn was the 1957 Cy Young Award winner, and was the runner-up three times, all during the period when just one award was given. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1973, with 83% of the total vote. (His eligibility was delayed, under the rules of the time, by two years of token minor league play.) Spahn won 363 games, more than any other left-handed pitcher in history, and more than any other pitcher who played his entire career in the post-1920 live-ball era. He is acknowledged as one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball history. The Warren Spahn Award, given to the major leagues' best left-handed pitcher, is named after him. Regarded as a "thinking man's" pitcher who liked to outwit batters, Spahn once described his approach on the mound: "Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing."

Hoyt Wilhelm Signed 8 x 10 Photograph

Lot 258: Hoyt Wilhelm Signed 8 x 10 Photograph

by Piedmont

July 26, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Description: Hoyt Wilhelm Signed 8 x 10 Photograph. James Hoyt Wilhelm (July 26, 1922 ? August 23, 2002) was an American Major League Baseball pitcher. During his career, he pitched for the New York Giants (1952?1956), St. Louis Cardinals (1957), Cleveland Indians (1957?1958), Baltimore Orioles (1958?1962), Chicago White Sox (1963?1968), California Angels (1969), Atlanta Braves (1969?1970; 1971), Chicago Cubs (1970), and Los Angeles Dodgers (1971?1972). He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985.[1] Wilhelm was best known for his knuckleball, which enabled him to have great longevity; occasionally as a starting pitcher, but mainly as a specialist relief man (in which role he won 124 games, still the record for relief pitchers). He is recognized as the first pitcher to have saved 200 games in his career, and the first pitcher to appear in 1,000 games. He is also one of the oldest players to have pitched in the major leagues; his final appearance was 16 days short of his 50th birthday. Wilhelm retired with the lowest career earned run average of any major league hurler after 1927 (Walter Johnson) who pitched more than 2,000 innings.

Patrice Munsel Signed 8 x 10 Photograph

Lot 260: Patrice Munsel Signed 8 x 10 Photograph

by Piedmont

July 26, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Description: Patrice Munsel Signed 8 x 10 Photograph. Munsel was born in Spokane, Washington, United States and studied in New York,[1] coached by Giacomo Spadoni. She first sang at the Metropolitan at age 17, in March 1943. She made her official Metropolitan debut on December 4, 1943, at the age of 18, singing Philine in Mignon. Perhaps best known for the role of Adele in Die Fledermaus, she performed 225 times at the Metropolitan. Sir Rudolf Bing called her a "superb soubrette" and implied that she was the world's best. Her opera roles included Rosina in The Barber of Seville and Despina in Cosi fan Tutte. In 1952 Munsel married Robert C. Schuler, an advertising and public-relations executive, producer and writer. The two were married for fifty-five years and had four children together: Heidi, Rhett, Scott and Nicole. Their marriage ended upon Schuler's death in 2007. Schuler conceived and produced the ABC-TV primetime variety series The Patrice Munsel Show, which starred his wife, and was broadcast on ABC in 1956?1957. Munsel and Schuler co-wrote a 2005 memoir of Schuler's life entitled The Diva & I. Munsel appeared on many other TV shows during her career, including the role of Marietta (Countess d'Altena) in the January 15, 1955 live telecast of the operetta "Naughty Marietta". She also portrayed the title role in the 1953 film Melba, which chronicled the life of the great opera singer, Dame Nellie Melba. Munsel made frequent television appearances on the Bell Telephone Hour, and was the central singer in the Camp Fire Girls' famous TV commercial and song "Sing Around the camp fire (join the Camp Fire Girls)", aired in the mid-1960s.

Philadelphia, PA, USA

Description: Will Rogers Signature Certified by Global Authentics GV728006. William Penn Adair "Will" Rogers (November 4, 1879 ? August 15, 1935) was an American cowboy, vaudeville performer, humorist, social commentator and motion picture actor. He was one of the world's best-known celebrities in the 1920s and 1930s. Known as "Oklahoma's Favorite Son," Rogers was born to a prominent Cherokee Nation family in Indian Territory (now part of Oklahoma). He traveled around the world three times, made 71 movies (50 silent films and 21 "talkies"), wrote more than 4,000 nationally syndicated newspaper columns, and became a world-famous figure. By the mid-1930s, the American people adored Rogers. He was the leading political wit of the Progressive Era, and was the top-paid Hollywood movie star at the time. Rogers died in 1935 with aviator Wiley Post, when their small airplane crashed in Alaska. Rogers' vaudeville rope act led to success in the Ziegfeld Follies, which in turn led to the first of his many movie contracts. His 1920s syndicated newspaper column and his radio appearances increased his visibility and popularity. Rogers crusaded for aviation expansion, and provided Americans with first-hand accounts of his world travels. His earthy anecdotes and folksy style allowed him to poke fun at gangsters, prohibition, politicians, government programs, and a host of other controversial topics in a way that was appreciated by a national audience, with no one offended. His aphorisms, couched in humorous terms, were widely quoted: "I am not a member of an organized political party. I am a Democrat." Another widely quoted Will Rogers comment was "I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts." Rogers even provided an epigram on his most famous epigram: When I die, my epitaph, or whatever you call those signs on gravestones, is going to read: "I joked about every prominent man of my time, but I never met a man I dident [sic] like." I am so proud of that, I can hardly wait to die so it can be carved.
