ALVIN D. LOVING, JR. (1935 - 2005) Untitled.

Lot 128: ALVIN D. LOVING, JR. (1935 - 2005) Untitled.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $35,000 - $50,000

Description: ALVIN D. LOVING, JR. (1935 - 2005) Untitled. Mixed media on collage of cardboard, paper and wood, mounted on masonite board, circa 1976-79. Approximately 1300x1880 mm; 51x74 inches. Provenance: the estate of Ray Blanco, New Jersey. Cuban-born Ray Blanco (1955- 2006) was a television documentary director and producer, and a prominent Latino activist and politician. He was also the President of the city council in the city of Plainfield, New Jersey, and worked with U.S. Senator Robert Menendez. This colorful and complex collage is an excellent example of the large mixed media works constructed by Al Loving in the mid- to late 1970s. It shows the continued evolution of his work away from his hard edge abstraction of the early 1970s, from the sculptural, dyed canvas constructions to more densely layered and fragmented works. This impressive work incorporates torn paper collage with constructed and painted forms of cardboard with wood fragments. Loving included collages in his two solo exhibitions at Fischbach Gallery in 1974 and 1976, and his first retrospective at the Studio Museum in Harlem in 1977. Another 1976 collage, Shelly, Fran, Susie and Andrea, is in the collection of the Studio Museum in Harlem, and was recently included in the museum's exhibition, Brothers and Sisters. From 1976–1978, Al Loving taught art as an assistant professor at William Patterson College in Wayne, New Jersey.

MARION SAMPLER (1920 - 1998) Untitled.

Lot 83: MARION SAMPLER (1920 - 1998) Untitled.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

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

Description: MARION SAMPLER (1920 - 1998) Untitled. Oil on cotton canvas, 1965. 1219x1219 mm; 48x48 inches. Signed and dated in oil, down the lower left side. Signed and dated in oil, upper left verso. Provenance: acquired directly from the artist; private collection, CA. Illustrated: Atkinson, J. Edward, Black Dimensions in Contemporary American Art, p. 105. This elegant geometric abstraction is a significant painting, and the first artwork to come to auction by this Californian artist/designer. Born in Anniston, Alabama in 1920, Marion Sampler went on to graduate from the University of Southern California in 1955. Sampler became an accomplished graphic designer; in fact, he became one of the first African-American architectural graphic designers in Los Angeles while working for Victor Gruen and Associates. The stained glass dome in South Coast Plaza's Jewel Court that Sampler designed while at Gruen and Associates illustrates his geometric design aesthetic. Concurrently, Sampler practiced painting in a similar geometric minimalist fashion. He blurred the lines between design and art--participating in the Los Angeles County Museum's design and typography program, in which graphic designers created the images for the museum's promotional materials. Sampler's work has appeared in significant indexes of African-American Art including J. Edward Atkinson's Black Dimensions in Contemporary American Art (1971) and Samella Lewis' African American Art and Artists (2003). Frank Gehry, the prolific American architect, was a friend and colleague of the artist, who credited Sampler with exposing him to gallery scene in Los Angeles. Sampler, who died in 1998, has art work in the permanent collection of the California African American Museum.
