DIEGO RIVERA Fruits of Labor.

Lot 446: DIEGO RIVERA Fruits of Labor.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 29, 2015, 10:30 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $20,000

Description: DIEGO RIVERA Fruits of Labor. Lithograph, 1932. 417x298 mm; 16 1/2x11 3/4 inches, full margins. Signed, dated and numbered 72/100 in pencil, lower margin (the edition numbers erased and rewritten). A superb impression of this very scarce, important lithograph. Diego Rivera (1886-1957), who helped establish the Mexico Mural Movement and was a leading artistic figure in Social Realism, was born in Guanajuato in North-Central Mexico. His well-to-do family encouraged his artistic avidity from a young age; his parents installed chalkboards and canvases around the house after coming home one afternoon to find the walls covered in their toddler's drawings. In 1897, Rivera began studying at the oldest art school in Latin America, the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City (now the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes). He remained until 1907 (three years before the start of the Mexican Revolution) at which point he left for Europe to continue his studies. Rivera spent the better part of the next 14 years abroad, mainly in Paris, where he was deeply involved in the thriving avant-garde art scene. Rivera was submerged in the artistic circle in Montparnasse and was friends with Amedeo Modigliani, who painted several portraits of him in 1914. Despite his absence from Mexico, Rivera intently followed the political situation at home. The Mexican Revolution officially ended in 1920, after a decade of bloodshed and political upheaval. The new government, led by Álvaro Obregón, decided to utilize art as a vehicle to unify society and promote their values of equality. Rivera was recruited for this effort; the Mexican government prompted him to first take a tour of Italy to study Renaissance frescoes (this classical influence is easily detected in his work) and then to return to Mexico as a muralist. The country's Minister of Education commissioned local artists, among them Rivera, to create murals around Mexico City to celebrate the lives of the working class and the indigenous people. Rivera embraced the projects and, as a result of them, quickly gained recognition and prominence as a leading muralist in Mexico. Rivera was simultaneously garnering the attention of the Soviet Union for his outspoken support of Communism. In 1928, while in Russia on an invitation from the government, Rivera met and befriended Alfred J. Barr, future director of the Museum of Modern Art. This friendship, as well as the admiration and patronage of Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, an avid collector of his work and one of the founding members of the museum, led to Rivera's one-man show at the MoMA in 1931, an event that brought the artist into the American mainstream. Rivera created five "portable murals" specifically for the exhibition, completing them in the six weeks between his arrival in the city and the exhibition's opening. The show caused a buzz with the press and was a huge hit with the public, solidifying Rivera's status in America. His work was so well received that he completed three additional murals of New York scenes after the show's opening and received numerous additional mural commissions across America (notably the Detroit Industry Murals, 1932-33, for the Ford Motor Company). Carl Zigrosser, director of the Weyhe Gallery and advocate of modern Mexican art, met the artist while he was in New York for his MoMA show. Zigrosser recognized the Rivera's rising popularity and encouraged him to embrace lithography as a way to capitalize on his success and disseminate his art. Imagery used in his murals inspired (and in some cases was replicated in) his prints, such as meditations on his heritage and identity, Mexican history, political strife and the celebration of the working class. Rivera also made several intimate portraits of his then-wife, Frida Kahlo. The artist created only fourteen prints in his entire career, mainly lithographs published by the Weyhe

This poster and the following lot are part of the extraordinary series of Swiss photomontage travel posters Matter designed from 1934-36.

Condition A / A-: minor abrasions in margins and image. In 1928, Broders' talent entered its "best period and he produces masterpieces which appear at the Pantheon of travel posters. He is able to simplify, to stylize the subject without letting it lose its charm or warmth - a feat which Cassandre, a master in this field, was never able to achieve" (Perry / Broders p. 13). "In the era of Cubism, Roger Broders underwent a graphic revolution" (La Mer p. 166). This geometrically appealing image manages to convey the hustle and bustle of the harbor, yet creates a stylized order out of the chaos.

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $9,000

Description: PER KROHG (1889-1965) JEAN BÖRLIN. 1920. 62 3/4x 45 3/4 inches, 159 1/2x162 1/4 cm. Publicite Wall, Paris. Condition A- / B+: repaired tears in margins, some slightly into image; repaired pin holes in corners. On October 25, 1920 the Ballet Suédois had their premiere performance in Paris. The Ballet Russe had been setting an Avant-garde standard for ballet in Paris since 1909, but Rolf de Mare, the impresario responsible for bringing the Swedish Ballet to Paris, and Jean Börlin, the principle dancer and choreographer, viewed the Ballet Russe as old fashioned. Under their direction, the Ballet Suédois employed composers and designers to work on their productions whose names read like a who's who of the Avant-garde art scene: Jean Cocteau, Francis Picabia, Erik Satie, Ferdinand Léger, Blaise Cendrars, Arthur Honegger, François Poulenc and others. Weill 470, Dance Posters 53 (var), Ballets Suedois p. 284, Plakat Kunst p. 94.

Lot 253: JAMES A. M. WHISTLER Little Arthur.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 29, 2015, 10:30 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,500

Description: JAMES A. M. WHISTLER Little Arthur. Etching printed in dark brown on light tan Chine collé on heavy wove paper, 1857-58. 58x48 mm; 2 1/4x1 inches, full margins. MacDonald's fourth state (of 4). Signed with the small, unshaded butterfly in pencil, lower right. From Twelve Etchings from Nature. A superb, richly-inked, early impression. This etching shows Arthur Haden, Whistler's nephew, the son of his half-sister Deborah and Francis Seymour Haden. It was likely made during the summer of 1857 while Whistler was staying with the Haden's in London, though it was published over a year later in November 1858 as one of the 12 etchings of the "French Set." This portrait and the etching of Annie (Kennedy 10; see lot 250) are the only non-French subjects in the set. Whistler likely signed this impression later, with the style of butterfly he was using from the 1880s onward, for a specific collector. Kennedy 9; Glasgow 8.

Whistler and his brother-in-law, Francis Seymour Haden, worked closely for several months during this time at the latter's house on Sloane Street, where Haden had installed his own etching press. At this time, both artist's etched intimate, interior scenes depicting members of their family, such as The Music Room which also dates from 1859 (see lot 263). Kennedy 27; Glasgow 38.
