          Est: $100,000 - $150,000

          Lee Bontecou (American, 1931-2022) - Untitled Signed and dated ‘Bontecou 1970' bottom center, silver pencil on black paper Sheet size: 18 x 24 in. (45.7 x 60.1cm) Provenance Leo Castelli, New York. The Collection of Sidney Rothberg, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Exhibition “Art on Paper,” Weatherspoon Art Museum, University of North Carolina, Greensboro, North Carolina, November 14-December 17, 1971, no. 29 (not illustrated).  Literature Art on Paper, an exhibition catalogue, Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, 1971, no. 29 (not illustrated).  Lot Essay A profound interest in space–and more specifically outer space–is the common tie between pioneering multi-media artist Lee Bontecou’s iconic wall sculptures and later graphite drawings on black paper. Of her work, Bontecou once said “I had a joy and excitement about outer space–nothing was known about the black holes–just huge, intangible, dangerous entities.” While some of Bontecou’s drawings directly relate to sculptural work, Untitled firmly belongs to a group of drawings characterized by delicate, floating forms executed with a limited color palette on black paper. Similar drawings dating from the 1980s through the 2000s are somewhat of a departure from earlier drawings in the artist’s œuvre, including her “worldscapes” from late 1950s and 1960s. Bontecou perfected her innovative technique of incorporating soot into her work as a Fulbright Scholar in Rome (1956-1957), having previously learned the skill of welding earlier that decade at the Skowhegan School of Sculpture and Painting, Maine. Some of Bontecou’s “worldscapes” have a solidity that show a strong connection with her three-dimensional work, while others possess a more ethereal and anthropomorphic quality, with softened, blurred passages highlighted by the artist’s selective smudging. While Bontecou sought to “harness the black” with her “worldscapes,” the distinctive group of silver pencil drawings, which include the present work, are completed against a black background and depict phantasmic, hovering flora-like shapes. Many are simply called: Untitled.

          Lee Bontecou (American, 1931 - 2022)

          Est: $800 - $1,200

          'Untitled' from 'Ten from Leo Castelli.' Lithograph on muslin affixed to board and laid down on support mat (as issued). Edition of 200 (and 25 limited lettered proofs, A-Y.), published by Tanglewood Press, Inc., New York, 1967. Signed in pencil on the support and annotated AP. 14 x 13"; 23 3/4 x 19 3/4" (framed). Born in Providence, RI, the late Lee Bontecou was an American sculptor who established herself as a key player in the New York art world during the 1960s and 1970s. Bontecou was offered her first solo exhibition by Leo Castelli in 1960. Met with critical acclaim, her wall-mounted reliefs constructed from stretched pieces of canvas over steel armatures defied the traditional boundary separating painting and sculpture. Eluding the industrial character of their raw materials, the central void of Bontecou's abstract compositions garnered anthropomorphic associations as bodily orifices or fleshy wounds. Lee Bontecou's idiosyncratic practice resisted easy identification with any particular art movement associated with the Leo Castelli Gallery which championed minimalism and pop art. She was the first, and for a time the only, woman artist represented by New Yorks most prolific and trendsetting dealer. Equally active as a printmaker during her career, Bontecou translated her large-scale reliefs into a two dimensional lithograph for 10 from Leo Castelli. Published to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the eponymous gallery, the portfolio of ten multiples invited contributions from Andy Warhol, Donald Judd, Frank Stella and Roy Lichtenstein among others.

          LEE BONTECOU Silkscreen.

          Est: $3,000 - $5,000

          LEE BONTECOU Silkscreen. Screenprint on muslin mounted on illustration board, 1967. 355x330 mm; 14x13 inches, full margins. Signed and numbered 65/200 in pencil, lower margin. Published by Tanglewood Press, Inc., New York. From Ten from Leo Castelli. A very good impression. Bontecou (born 1931) is an American sculptor and printmaker originally from Providence, Rhode Island. She was exposed to construction and assembly by her parents who both worked in war implements manufacturing. From a young age, Bontecou expressed an interest in drawing and sculpture and after studying academic painting at the Art Students League, New York, from 1952 to 1955, with artists such as George Grosz (1893-1959) and William Zorach (1887-1966), Bontecou discovered her passion for sculpture. She spent two years in Rome in the late 1950s on a Fulbright Scholarship, where she delved deeper into sculpture and began welding. She also developed a novel technique using an acetylene torch to create large drawings made of soot, which she called "worldscapes." On her return to New York, Bontecou began creating mounted abstract wall sculptures, for which she gained acclaim. Leo Castelli organized her first solo exhibition at his gallery in 1960, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, bought one of her works the following year. The art critic and philosopher Arthur Danto described Bontecou's work as lying "at the intersection of magnified insects, battle masks, and armored chariots." Her sculptures from the 1960s, which she is best known for, impart an organic and mechanistic sensibility that conjure fear and terror of the unknown and the inexpressible. Field 12.

          LEE BONTECOU Silkscreen.

          Est: $2,500 - $3,500

          LEE BONTECOU Silkscreen. Screenprint on muslin mounted on illustration board, 1967. 355x330 mm; 14x13 inches, full margins. Edition of 200. Signed in pencil, lower right. Published by Tanglewood Press, Inc., New York. From Ten from Leo Castelli. A very good impression. Bontecou (born 1931) is an American sculptor and printmaker originally from Providence, Rhode Island. She was exposed to construction and assembly by her parents who both worked in war implements manufacturing. From a young age, Bontecou expressed an interest in drawing and sculpture and after studying academic painting at the Art Students League, New York, from 1952 to 1955, with artists such as George Grosz (1893-1959) and William Zorach (1887-1966), Bontecou discovered her passion for sculpture. She spent two years in Rome in the late 1950s on a Fulbright Scholarship, where she delved deeper into sculpture and began welding. She also developed a novel technique using an acetylene torch to create large drawings made of soot, which she called "worldscapes." On her return to New York, Bontecou began creating mounted abstract wall sculptures, for which she gained acclaim. Leo Castelli organized her first solo exhibition at his gallery in 1960, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, bought one of her works the following year. The art critic and philosopher Arthur Danto described Bontecou's work as lying "at the intersection of magnified insects, battle masks, and armored chariots." Her sculptures from the 1960s, which she is best known for, impart an organic and mechanistic sensibility that conjure fear and terror of the unknown and the inexpressible. Field 12.

Printed and published by ULAE, West Islip, with the blind stamp lower left. A very good impression. According to Sparks, " Tenth Stone combines two things Bontecou [born 1931] admired, flowers and airplane wings, in an image that symbolized her fears for the future of the planet. Using the same fantasy--flowers in gas masks--she created similar sculptures in wood and plastic as well as a series of drawings. The lithographic ink in this print has the iridescent quality of silverpoint." Sparks 24.
