DESIGNER UNKNOWN. INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF MODERN ART. 1913. 20x14 inches, 50x35 cm.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimate: $5,000 - $7,500

Description: DESIGNER UNKNOWN INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF MODERN ART. 1913. 20x14 inches, 50 3/4x35 1/2 cm. Condition B+ / A-: scuffing in image; minor creases and abrasions along edges. Printed on card. Among the most significant events in the history of modern art, the Armory Show introduced Americans to Impressionism, Neo- and Post-Impressionism, Symbolism, Fauvism, Cubism and modern sculpture. Though coolly received by critics, the show was an inspiration to American artists such as Man Ray, Stuart Davis, and Joseph Stella. The show was America's introduction to Europe's Modernist painters like Picasso, Matisse, Gaugin and Van Gogh. It was at this show that Marcel Duchamp's "scandalous" Nude Descending the Staircase and other Cubist and Futurist works sent shocks through the American art world, which could not at all come to terms with such a departure from conventional representational art, threatened by the unknown. The uprooted pine tree image on the poster (which was the same used for the cover of the exhibition catalogue) is taken from the Massachusetts Revolutionary-era battle flag, "proclaiming liberation from the art of the past" (Shapiro p. 135), and clearly signifying another revolution, this time in art. The Armory is, incidentally, directly across the street from Swann Galleries. rare.

ÑIKO (ANTONIO PEREZ, 1941- ). SI SALGO, LLEGO . . . 1974. 26x34 inches, 66x86 cm. Instituto Cubano del Arte Industria Cinematográficos,

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimate: $400 - $600

Description: ÑIKO (ANTONIO PEREZ, 1941- ) SI SALGO, LLEGO . . . 1974. 26x34 inches, 66x86 1/2 cm. Instituto Cubano del Arte Industria Cinematográficos, Cuba. Condition A-: minor creases and abrasions in margins and image. Silkscreen. Paper. Antonio Pérez González (Ñiko) grew up in the midst of the Cuban Revolution, witnessing Fidel Castro's transition to power in the newly formed Communist state at just 18. The following decade heralded a renaissance of Cuban poster art, as "the noncommercial mass poster was the direct fruit of the revolution, a conscious application of art in the service of social improvement" (Cushing p. 7). Ñiko was particularly drawn to this proactive artistic application, infusing his designs with the ideologies and achievements of the young government. Here, he wryly depicts a boat afloat on a multicolored sea under Castro's famous adage "If I set out, I arrive… If I arrive, I enter… If I enter, I triumph," possibly implying further political conquests. With the bright colors and bold lines typical of 1960s and 70s graphic design, Mederos creates an image of strength and buoyancy, touting the triumph of Cuban Communism.

[Éditions Paul Martial, Paris.] Condition B+: minor tears and creases at edges. Printed on photographic paper. Through his work as Art Director for the printer Paul Martial, Francis Bernard became involved in many avant-garde projects, such as his work with OTUA, l'Office Technique pour l'Utilisation de l'Acier. OTUA was the creative branch of the French steel industry, and was founded in the late 1920s. Francis Bernard designed their logo, worked with A.M. Cassandre on the design of the organization's magazine Acier, designed exhibition stands and advertising for the company and worked closely with other designers like René Herbst, Robert Mallet-Stevens and Jean Prouvé who all designed furniture for the company. It has been suggested that these photomontages are the work of Germaine Krull.

Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: FILIPPO TOMMASO MARINETTI (1876-1944) [LES MOTS EN LIBERTÉ FUTURISTES.] Group of 4 typographic plates. 1919. Sizes vary. Edizioni Futuriste di 'Poesia,' Milan. Condition varies, generally A. Each attached to mat on verso with archival tape along edges. Paper. Matted. The tenets of Marinetti's Typographic Revolution (1913) are visually set forth in his typographic masterpiece, Les Mots en Liberté Futuristes (The Futurist Words in Freedom.) The book contains a creative and ingenious variety of hand-designed typefaces, calligraphy and dynamic layouts. "This book is considered the peak of Marinetti's typographic experimentation, reflecting both his gift as a designer, his talent as a visual poet and expositor and his ingenuity as a publicist . . . it is the single work which expresses the doctrine and visual praxis of literary Futurism" (Ex Libris 9, #93 and #94). These are the four typographic collages which have been removed from the book. Group includes: Bataille à 9 Étages; Après la Marne Joffre Visita le Front en Auto; Le Soir, Couchée dans son Lit; and Une Assemblée Tumultueuse. MoMA 731.2006.

FILIPPO TOMMASO MARINETTI (1876-1944). FUTURISMO. 1932. 34x24 inches, 86x61 cm. Lamberto Leandri.

by Swann Auction Galleries

May 10, 2016, 1:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimate: $8,000 - $12,000

Description: FILIPPO TOMMASO MARINETTI (1876-1944) FUTURISMO. 1932. 34x24 1/4 inches, 86 1/2x61 1/2 cm. Lamberto Leandri. Condition A- / B+: restored losses and minor repaired tears at edges and along vertical fold; minor creases in margins and image. Framed. Futurism and Fascism were always linked, an association that grew closer as the 20th century progressed, perhaps reaching its peak in 1932, when Marinetti helped promote the Exhibition of the Fascist Revolution. Here, in the national red, white and green of the Italian flag, Marinetti extols the wonders of the exhibition and the "bold, futurist soul" of Mussolini. Marinetti designed very few posters, although his typographic collages were well-suited for conveying information in a memorable way. This poster appeared as a folded insert in issue 29 of Futurismo, a short-lived newspaper printed from 1932-33. This rare document is one of the only "free word" typographic posters from the Futurist era. We could find no other copies at auction. Manifesti Italiani p. 112.

Estimate: $800 - $1,200

Description: EMIL ORLIK (1870-1932) DIE • WEBER / VON G. HAUPTMANN. 1897. 28x40 inches, 71x101 1/2 cm. A. Haase, Prague. Condition B+: repaired tears at edges, some into image; restored losses and overpainting in margins; repaired pin holes in corners. The Weavers was a play based on a historical uprising of Silesian weavers during the 1840s, who were forced out of work on account of the Industrial Revolution. Considered "the first socialist play," the story is a cornerstone of the Communist movement which swept Europe in the early 20th century, symbolizing workers losing their jobs through no fault of their own. Karl Marx, Heinrich Heine and other German men of letters evoked the tale in their works. Hauptmann's play, written in 1892, is considered his most famous work. Orlik's poster, which shows a fraction of the angry mob, so impressed Hauptmann, that he invited the artist to Berlin. The trip proved to be a stepping stone for Orlik's future involvement with the theatre. rare. DFP-III 2471, Kunst 358, Theaterplakate 69, Wember 639.

Description: D. MOOR (DMITRY STAKHIEVICH ORLOV, 1883-1946) [THE TRIUMPH OF CHRISTIANITY.] Circa 1925. 28x42 1/2 inches, 71 1/4x108 cm. Bezbozhnik u Stanka, Moscow. Condition B+: tears, creases and abrasions along vertical and horizontal folds; pin holes in corners. Paper. Dmitry Stakhievich Orlov (who later took the surname Moor) was one of the most recognized creators of Soviet political posters, applying his wit and political dissatisfaction to a uniquely graphic style of ink drawings dramatically accentuated with bright (often red) color. His chosen pseudonym was borrowed from Karl Moor, the main character of Friedrich Schiller's drama The Robbers, who the artist believed "ideally rendered his artistic temperament: firm and assertive, not inclined to good-natured humour" (Russian-IC). Following his work in support of the October Revolution, Moor focused his satire on antireligious, and later anti-Nazi propaganda, as well as a select few film posters before his death in 1967.

'This theme, of a nation surviving under siege, largely reflects the economic and political reality of U.S. - Cuban relations and has artistic precedents in posters produced in the United States during the Second World War' (Cushing p. 15). Here, Mederos employed his masterful line work and color blocking to depict Ho Chi Minh, the late Communist president of North Vietnam, in this pictorial exaltation of the figurehead. Above, are the words of North Vietnamese General Phung Quang Thanh, 'There is nothing more precious than independence and freedom,' a sentiment echoed and disseminated throughout Mederos' designs. While occasionally criticized for underemphasizing the suffering of the Vietnamese people at the hands of the U.S., the posters found success internationally, establishing Mederos as an influential developer of Cuban graphic design.
