Harry Wilson Barnitz (American/Ohio, 1864-1916)

by Neal Auction Company

May 7, 2016, 10:00 AM CST

New Orleans, LA, USA

Estimated Price: $8,000 - $12,000

Description: Harry Wilson Barnitz (American/Ohio, 1864-1916), "Cabin Scene during the Cotton Harvest", oil on canvas board, signed lower right, artist label with signature on stretcher, 18 in. x 24 in., framed. Provenance: Florida Estate. Note: Harry W. Barnitz was a student of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and studied under the renowned American Realist painter, Thomas Eakins. Eakins, who painted a portrait of Barnitz when he was just nineteen, complimented his young student in a letter from 1884, “[y]ou draw and paint very well and extremely well for your age. I know no one who has a better start.” In 1887, he moved to Atlanta for a brief period and taught at the Atlanta Art School as well as the Washington Seminary for Girls. He also shared a studio with Henry Ossawa Tanner, a fellow student from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. Orion Frazee, a local sculptor, art critic, and prominent figure of the Atlanta art scene described him: “his manner is the broad, vigorous style of the French school – is strong and rich in color.” Barnitz left Atlanta to return to Philadelphia in 1889. A rare example from Barnitz’ time in the South, the work offered here presents a sweeping view of a southern landscape complete with rustic cabin, a woman washing clothes in the stream and a cotton harvest in the background. The composition, luminous color and precise brushwork certainly lend credence to Eakins’ glowing review of the young painter. Ref.: Sotheby’s. http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/lot.57.html/2008/american-paintings-drawings-sculpture-n08449. Accessed Mar. 15, 2015. Pollock, Deborah C.

Robert Indiana - Highball on the Redball Manifest - 1997 - SIGNED

by DUMBO Auctions

Ships From: Brooklyn , NY US

Description: "Highball on the Redball Manifest" by Robert Indiana, 1997 Signed Serigraph. Paper size is 18.5 x 16 inches, with an image size of 16.5 x 14 inches. The Serigraph is from an edition size of 395 is currently framed. The condition was rated A: Mint. Additional details: Signed and Numbered out of 395 in pencil by Robert Indiana. Limited Edition Serigraph published by Marco Fine Arts Contemporary Atelier and released as part of the large portfolio and book entitled "The American Dream". Here are the details from the book regarding this image by Indiana: "The Locomotive, for one who grew up in the Midwest in the mid-century, was as ritual and magical a part of life as cars were in 60's Los Angeles. This was even more to Indiana since his grandfather was a train engineer. Indiana pays homage to his grandfather and to his second home in C.Slip by referring to 25. Again, Indiana searches across the two dimensional plane inlaying his vision with precision of a fine engineer. At first glance the artwork appears to be a pattern of shapes rather than a singular image and that effect of ideas within forms, forms within ideas --a concrete-like poetry -- is a seminal to Indiana's work." The print is currently framed in a natural wood profile, with a 7/8" face and 7/8" depth. The overall outside dimensions of the frame are 27.75" by 25". *estimated shipping price: $19.99

II.128 - 137, pp. 86 - 87, (illus., another example) ESSAY:‘Today, stars are their own managers. Before there were people who did this, now you have to do everything yourself. It’s the same with art.’1 Arguably the most influential artist of the twentieth century, Andy Warhol revolutionised modern art, radically altering notions of authorship and commodity to confound distinctions between art and life, ‘high’ and ‘low’ art and above all, between artist and public, whose tastes and values not only came to coincide but became inseparable. Pioneering techniques now commonplace in contemporary art, Warhol employed a vocabulary of mass-produced images from advertising and the celebrity press to present art as essentially another commercial enterprise – an act filled with equal parts indifferent banality, ingenious marketing and celebration. Applauded as a mirror of contemporary American culture in which, he notoriously predicted, everyone would experience (or want to experience) ‘fifteen minutes of fame’, Warhol thus actively cultivated celebrity with his glittering reflections of the upper echelons of society attesting to that aspect of his practice he unapologetically described as ‘business art’. As art historian Robert Rosenblum suggests, his legacy may be considered in the venerable European tradition of portrait painting, with Warhol ‘the ideal court painter to the 1970s international aristocracy that mixed, in wildly varying proportions, wealth, high fashion and brains.’ 2That Warhol believed anyone could be a star is encapsulated superbly by the present series of glamorous portraits, Ladies and Gentlemen, 1975. While immediately evoking the allure of celebrity, the suite is, however, far removed from the earlier Jackie, Marilyn or Liz portraits which celebrate established personalities and derive from images made ‘public’ by virtue of their appearance in the media. Rather, Warhol here draws inspiration from Polaroid photographs he himself had taken of anonymous drag queens and transsexuals sourced by Interview magazine editor, Bob Colacello, from a Greenwich Village nightclub, ‘The Gilded Grape’. Predominantly of mixed-race and Hispanic origin, these models represented for Warhol the ultimate expression of the movie star presence he so eagerly sought to capture. Drawing heavily upon Hollywood idols, such individuals dedicated their lives to the performance of their self-fashioned personas, becoming manufactured icons in their own right. As Warhol pondered at the time upon the role of gender and artifice in self-image, ‘I wonder whether it’s harder for 1) a man to be a man; 2) a man to be a woman; 3) a woman to be a woman; or 4) a woman to be a man. I don’t really know the answer, but from watching all the different types, I know that the people who think they’re working the hardest are the men trying to be women. They do double-time… I guess it’s interesting to try to be another sex.’3 Bestowing a ‘glamour effect’ through the use of flamboyant colour, pose and accentuation of make-up intended to simulate fictional identities, thus Warhol immortalises anonymous figures of the promiscuous mixed-race American scene at the time denied visibility or marginalised by clichés relegating them to the fringes of community life. While mimicking the celebrity status of his other portraits, in its ambiguity and anonymity the series nevertheless veers away from the commerciality so often associated with Warhol’s work to explore a more abstract and elusive notion of fame. Similarly, the technique of photographic images printed upon torn paper collage employed here departs from Warhol’s highly mechanical silkscreened works of the previous decade to reveal, rather, traces of the artist’s hand - effectively belying his infamous declaration that ‘I just want to be a machine.’4 Indeed, like the best of his achievements, Ladies and Gentlemen remains deliberately enigmatic – Warhol seems to demand that his audience look beyond the visual seduction of the image surface, yet he himself remains ever passive and superficial, elucidating very little in terms of meaning. 1.
