DAMIEN HIRST (1965- ). THE HOURS. Group of 5 single record albums. 2006-2009. Each approximately 7x7 inches, 18x18 cm.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimate: $600 - $900

Description: DAMIEN HIRST (1965- ) THE HOURS. Group of 5 single record albums. 2006-2009. Each approximately 7 1/4x7 1/4 inches, 18 1/2x18 1/2 cm. Condition varies, generally A-. Each complete with album and liner. Hirst, world-renowned as the star of the British contemporary art scene, is better known for his animals in formaldehyde, dot paintings and butterfly paintings than for his affiliation with the music world. However, as a penultimate self-promoter and marketer, he involved himself in many different projects. Such side projects included designing the artwork for Anthony Genn and Martin Slattery's album cover, a promotional poster for the band and similar skull-themed images for at least six of the group's singles. Skulls took on a larger role in Hirst's work in 2007 when he created For The Love of God, a platinum-plated skull adorned with 8,601 diamonds.

DESIGNER UNKNOWN. DAVID BOWIE /

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimate: $800 - $1,200

Description: DESIGNER UNKNOWN DAVID BOWIE / "SERIOUS MOONLIGHT" TOUR. 1983. 46x61 1/2 inches, 116 3/4x156 1/4cm. Condition B+: restoration and creases along vertical and horizontal folds and lower left corner; repaired tears and creases at edges and in image. Designed to promote the Paris engagement of David Bowie's Serious Moonlight tour in June of 1983, this poster infused the pop art aesthetic of the previous decade with innovative graphic design elements more typical of the late 1980s and early 1990s. "Let's Dance," the album promoted by the tour, was a surprise success for the artist, becoming one of his best-selling albums and Bowie's most successful international tour, which sold out every venue it played in its eight month run. In what is widely considered a transitional period for the artist musically, from glam rock youth to an icon with artistic staying power, this poster rather pointedly shows the artist's Warholesque image fading into a darkness from which this new persona can emerge.

BEN SHAHN (1898-1969). A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND. 1948. 44x29 inches, 113x73 cm. Amalgamated Lithographers of America, New York.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimate: $3,000 - $4,000

Description: BEN SHAHN (1898-1969) A GOOD MAN IS HARD TO FIND. 1948. 44 3/4x29 inches, 113 3/4x73 3/4 cm. Amalgamated Lithographers of America, New York. Condition B: staining in background; repaired tears, restored losses and overpainting at edges and in image. Colors attenuated. Mounted on Japan. A Good Man is Hard to Find is not a traditional campaign poster; it is more of a political cartoon or caricature, touting neither of the men depicted, but rather the unseen third Progressive Party candidate. "His intent was to present the two major parties as indistinguishable, with only the Progressive Party offering the voters a bid for change" (Prescott p. 133). "The two candidates [Dewey and Truman], on whom Shahn obviously looked with equal suspicion, are ingeniously placed, Dewey atop a piano and Truman at its keyboard, before sheets of music whose titles are a vital part of the artist's satirical message . . . Details are handled with remarkable acuteness: the strained cordiality of Dewey's smile . . . the wrinkles in Truman's trousers and the amateurish flourish with which his right hand strikes a chord; the definition of both candidates' feet. Yet distortions and elisions are just as important, as in the aggrandizement of the two politicians' heads and the subtle way in which Truman's eyeglasses are left blank and the teeth of both men are frozen in bright evenness. This is an image intended to provoke laughter regardless of one's political convictions" (Soby, Graphic Arts, p. 17). Prescott p. 158, Images of an Era 8, American Style 72, MoMA 23.1951.
