Description: RICHARD BECK (DATES UNKNOWN) ORIENT LINE CRUISES. 1937. 39x24 1/2 inches, 99x62 1/4 cm. The Baynard Press, London. Condition B: overpainting and restoration in margins, corners and along vertical and horizontal folds. This rather daring photomontage utilizes two prominent Surrealist elements; a mannequin and a sea shell. Two white cruise ships are only suggested in the background. Tom Purvis, writing in Poster Progress, a book published shortly before the Second World War, displays three of Beck's posters and explains that they "show a distinct trend in poster design. The artists assemble material, combining photography and drawn design in some novel or striking arrangement" (Poster Progress p. 93). Beck designed several photomontage posters for the Orient Line and also designed the poster for the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. rare/span. Poster Progress p. 55, Voyage p. 154, Poster Art In Australia p. 25.

Description: RENE MAGRITTE (1898-1967) SECOND FILM AND FINE ARTS WORLD FESTIVAL OF BELGIUM. 1949. 47 1/2x30 1/2 inches, 120 3/4x77 1/2 cm. O. de Rycker, Brussels. Condition B+: creases in upper image; minor repaired tears and abrasions in margins and image; overpainting in text at bottom. Known as one of the world's most important Surrealist painters, Magritte also spent a large part of his life working in advertising, both to help sustain himself during lean times and out of an interest in publicity. Toward the end of his life when money was no longer a problem, he designed a poster for Sabena airlines depicting a bird filled with a cloudy sky. In this poster for a film festival in Brussels, in his recognizable style, he uses the forehead of a woman as a movie screen. From 1942 to 1944, Magritte did a number of ads for a perfume company called Provence, with a lady's face treated in the same style. Magritte had used this image once before, in 1947 for the first Film Festival.

REMBRANDT VAN RIJN Jan Lutma, Goldsmith.

Lot 162: REMBRANDT VAN RIJN Jan Lutma, Goldsmith.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 29, 2014, 10:30 AM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $60,000 - $90,000

Description: REMBRANDT VAN RIJN Jan Lutma, Goldsmith. Etching and drypoint, 1656. 200x150 mm; 7 3/4x5 7/8 inches, thread margins. Biörklund's first state (of 3), before the window and the additional work in the background; Usticke's first state (of 6); White and Boon's first state (of 3). Ex-collection John Barnard (Lugt 1417, verso; this impression cited by Lugt, page 257, and sold at auction in London, April 16, 1798); and Robert Stayner Holford (Lugt 2243, verso). A superb, dark and early lifetime impression with burr on both of the sleeves, on the figurine in Lutma's right hand and throughout Lutma's pants and jacket, consistent with the earliest impressions of this subject. We have located only 4 other first state impressions at auction in the past 25 years. According to Luijten, "though Lutma (circa 1584-1669) was already an elderly man when he was portrayed by Rembrandt in this etching, he was probably still working as a silversmith. Yet despite the presence of a hammer and a pot containing punches, he is not working here but posing. He holds one of his creations--an object with a turned stem, possibly a candlestick--in his right hand, and beside him on the table is a chased silver drinking bowl," (Rembrandt the Printmaker, London, 2000, page 332). There is a similar silver bowl made by Lutma, circa 1641, now in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. There are approximately 34 extant impressions of the first state of this subject on both European and Japanese papers. At some point, Rembrandty reworked the plate considerably, adding the entire background. This famous impression, once owned by the renowned English collector of Rembrandt etchings, John Barnard (whose ink initials are visible from the verso of the sheet through to the recto upper left), compares very closely in quality with the first state impression in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam (RP-P-OB-550), on which there is also a mark ghosting through to the recto upper left. Bartsch 276; Biörklund 56-C; Hollstein (White and Boon) 276.

A superb, richly-inked and early impression of this very scarce etching. Before his untimely death by tuberculosis at 28 years old, Potter (1625-1654) gained widespread popularity in and around Amsterdam through his oeuvre of some 100 paintings and approximately 20 etchings, nearly all of which represent horses, livestock and landscapes.

Fragonard (1732-1806) visited Italy during the late 1750s, spending the summer of 1760 with his friend and fellow-printmaker the Abbé Richard de Saint-Non at the Villa d'Este in Tivoli. Deeply indluenced by his Italian sojourn, Fragonard produced a series of 16 etchings after paintings by the Old Masters following his return to Paris in 1761. These etchings constitute more than half of his scarce printed oeuvre of 25 known prints according to the Wildenstein catalogue raisonné.

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $3,500

Published by the New Republic, New York. A superb, dark impression with warm plate tone. According to Zigrosser, the total edition of the New Republic portfolio exceeded 500, but the quota for Marin prints was divided between this print and another, Brooklyn Bridge and Lower New York, etching, 1913 (Zigrosser 106), therefore making Marin's prints scarcer than the Hopper, Sloan, Bacon, Miller and Haskell prints in the same portfolio.
