NORMAN LEWIS (1909 - 1979) Sunset #2.

Lot 54: NORMAN LEWIS (1909 - 1979) Sunset #2.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

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

Description: NORMAN LEWIS (1909 - 1979) Sunset #2. Oil on linen canvas, 1960. 1120x990 mm; 49x39 inches. Signed and dated in oil, lower right recto. Titled in oil, verso on the upper stretcher bar. Provenance: the artist; Judge and Mrs. Edward R. Dudley, New York; thence by descent to the current owner. This attractive oil by Norman Lewis was painted during the last year of what curator Ann Gibson describes as his "atmospheric" abstractions that he began in the early 1950s. Sunset #2 epitomizes this series of works on both canvas and paper that describe a natural environment or phenomenon--often weather, landscape or water. Lewis used a dry brush technique, dragging a loaded brush with little medium to make floating veils or layers of light and color. This is the last painting to be offered from a collection that included Lewis' Untitled, circa 1960-64, now in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Gibson pp. 24-25.

by Swann Auction Galleries

April 2, 2015, 2:30 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: ROMARE BEARDEN (1911 - 1988) Memories (The Train). Color aquatint, etching and photo engraving, 1974. 455x560 mm; 17 7/8x22 inches, full margins. One of a small group of monotypes with unique coloring, printed from the key plate, and aside from the edition of 125. Signed, titled and numbered 1/1 in pencil, lower margin. Printed by the artist and Robert Blackburn, New York. Published by Transworld Art, New York. When Romare Bearden was commissioned to make The Train, he and Bob Blackburn created a new combination of etching and photo engraving to re-create the appearance of his collage. One of Bearden's best known and innovative prints, The Train was then described by John Loring in Arts Magazine as one of the ten most important prints of our time. The print is based on the same-titled collage also from 1974, which is in turn based on the photomontage collage Mysteries, one of the artist's earliest works from 1964. Other experimental printings from this matrix are a series entitled 12 Trains (see Gelburd/Rosenberg pp. 14). Not in Gelburd/Rosenberg.
