        MIRA SCHENDEL

        Est: CHF4,000 - CHF6,000

        MIRA SCHENDEL (Zurich 1919 - 1988 São Paulo) Untitled (from the series: Silver and gold small squares/Quadradinho de oura e prata). 1982. Gold leaf, charcoal and oil on firm paper. Signed and dated lower right: Mira 82. 38 x 23.5 cm. Provenance: - Purchased from the artist, private collection Brasil. - By descent to the present owner, since then private collection USA. Born in Zurich in 1919 to a Jewish family of Italian-German origins, Myrrha Dagmar Dub grew up in Milan. The growth of Fascism in Europe forced her to flee first to Sofia in 1930 and then later to Sarajevo. In 1944 she returned to Italy and then emigrated to Brazil in 1949. Only then did the former philosophy student begin to dedicate herself to art. In Brazil in the 1950s there raged a passionate debate about the significance of art in a modern post war society. On the one side stood the defenders of figurative art, which was seen as the symbol of nationalism and revolution; on the other side were the supporters of abstraction, which was seen as a unique opportunity for the renewal of art after the experiences of the war. Mira Schendel was influenced by both sides, but in the end turned to neither group. Starting with figurative work, she turned again and again to abstraction, in which her distinct interest in materiality played a great role. Above all, for her the making of a work – the handmade element – represented a connection between the real world and the artist. The present work from 1982 powerfully demonstrates her love of experimentation, with the use of various types of paper, and the meaning of materiality within her work. Alongside Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica, Mira Schendel is one of the most important Brazilian artists of the second half of the 20th century. --------------- MIRA SCHENDEL (Zürich 1919 - 1988 São Paulo) Ohne Titel (aus der Serie: Silver and gold small squares/Quadradinho de oura e prata). 1982. Blattgold, Kohle und Öl auf festem Papier. Unten rechts signiert und datiert: Mira 82. 38 x 23,5 cm. Provenienz: - Direkt von der Künstlerin erworben, Privatsammlung Brasilien. - Durch Erbschaft an den heutigen Besitzer, seitdem Privatsammlung USA. 1919 in Zürich in eine jüdische Familie mit italienisch-deutschen Wurzeln geboren, wächst Myrrha Dagmar Dub in Mailand auf. Der zunehmende Faschismus in Europa zwingt sie 1939 zur Flucht erst nach Sofia und dann weiter nach Sarajevo. 1944 kehrt sie nach Italien zurück und wandert 1949 nach Braslien aus. Erst hier beginnt die ehemalige Philosophie-Studentin, sich der Kunst zu widmen. Im Brasilien der 1950er Jahre tobt eine leidenschaftliche Diskussion über den Stellenwert der Kunst in der modernen Nachkriegsgesellschaft. Auf der einen Seite stehen die Verfechter der figurativen Kunst, die als Symbol des Nationalimus und der Revolution gesehen wird; auf der anderen Seite die Anhänger der Abstraktion, die als einzige Möglichkeit gesehen wird, den Kunstbetrieb, auch nach den Erfahrungen des Krieges zu erneuern. Mira Schendel wird von beiden Seiten beeinflusst, tritt aber letztendlich keiner Gruppe bei. Beginnend mit figurativen Werken, wendet sie sich immer mehr der Abstraktion zu, wobei ihr ausgeprägtes Interesse an der Materialität eine grosse Rolle spielt. Darüberhinaus bedeutet für sie das „Machen“ – die handwerkliche Arbeit also – eine Verbindung zwischen der realen Welt und dem Künstler. Die vorliegende Arbeit von 1982 zeigt eindrucksvoll ihre Expertimentierfreude mit unterschiedlichen Papieren und die Bedeutung der Materialiät in ihrem Werk. Neben Lygia Clark und Hélio Oiticica gehört Mira Schendel zu den bedeutendsten brasilianischen Künstlern der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts.

On the one side stood the defenders of figurative art, which was seen as the symbol of nationalism and revolution; on the other side were the supporters of abstraction, which was seen as a unique opportunity for the renewal of art after the experiences of the war. Mira Schendel was influenced by both sides, but in the end turned to neither group. Starting with figurative work, she turned again and again to abstraction, in which her distinct interest in materiality played a great role. Above all, for her the making of a work – the handmade element – represented a connection between the real world and the artist. The present work from 1982 powerfully demonstrates her love of experimentation, with the use of various types of paper, and the meaning of materiality within her work. Alongside Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica, Mira Schendel is one of the most important Brazilian artists of the second half of the 20th century. --------------- MIRA SCHENDEL (Zürich 1919 - 1988 Sao Paulo) Ohne Titel (aus der Serie: Silver and gold small squares/Quadradinho de oura e prata). 1982. Blattsilber, Kohle und Öl auf festem Papier. Unten rechts signiert und datiert: Mira 82. 32 x 21 cm. Das Werk ist verzeichnet im Estate of Mira Schendel, New York. Wir danken dem Estate für die freundliche Unterstützung. Provenienz: - Vom Vorbesitzer 1983 direkt bei derKünstlerin erworben. - Durch Erbschaft an den heutigen Besitzer, seitdem Privatbesitz USA. 1919 in Zürich in eine jüdische Familie mit italienisch-deutschen Wurzeln geboren, wächst Myrrha Dagmar Dub in Mailand auf. Der zunehmende Faschismus in Europa zwingt sie 1939 zur Flucht erst nach Sofia und dann weiter nach Sarajevo. 1944 kehrt sie nach Italien zurück und wandert 1949 nach Braslien aus. Erst hier beginnt die ehemalige Philosophie-Studentin, sich der Kunst zu verschreiben. Im Brasilien der 1950er Jahre tobt eine leidenschaftliche Diskussion über den Stellenwert der Kunst in der modernen Nachkriegsgesellschaft. Auf der einen Seite stehen die Verfechter der figurativen Kunst, die als Symbol des Nationalimus und der Revolution gesehen wird; auf der anderen Seite die Anhänger der Abstraktion, die als einzige Möglichkeit gesehen wird, den Kunstbetrieb, auch nach den Erfahrungen des Krieges zu erneuern. Mira Schendel wird von beiden Seiten beeinflusst, tritt aber letztendlich keiner Gruppe bei. Beginnend mit figurativen Werken, wendet sie sich immer mehr der Abstraktion zu, wobei ihr ausgeprägtes Interesse an der Materialität eine grosse Rolle spielt. Darüberhinaus bedeutet für sie das „Machen“ – die handwerkliche Arbeit also – eine Verbindung zwischen der realen Welt und dem Künstler. Die vorliegende Arbeit von 1982 zeigt eindrucksvoll ihre Expertimentierfreude mit unterschiedlichen Papieren und die Bedeutung der Materialiät in ihrem Werk. Neben Lygia Clark und Hélio Oiticica gehört Mira Schendel zu den bedeutendsten brasilianischen Künstlern der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts.
