In a time when Abstract Expressionism was the rage Alice Neel captured Andy Warhol not too long after his shooting. The middle-aged pop artist’s portrait shows his flaccid torso, as well as Warhol’s surgical scars and the medical corset, both a result of the Valerie Solanas shooting of the artist two years earlier.

White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose) is an abstract painting by Mark Rothko completed in 1950. Rothko believed that the rectangles merely offered a new way of representing the presences or spirits that he tried to capture in those earlier works.

He imagined a kind of direct communion between himself and the viewer, one which might touch the viewer with a higher spirituality. White Center was sold in May 2007 by Sotheby's on behalf of David Rockefeller to the Royal family of Qatar.

L'Air- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Joan Miró

L'Air
painting of woman enjoying a painting by Joan Miró

acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm
2018

SOLD

Miró invented a new kind of pictorial space in which carefully rendered objects issuing strictly from the artist's imagination are juxtaposed with basic, recognizable forms.

In L'Air we see a deep, brilliant blue of the sky, his iconic red sun as well as a black star and all sorts of creatures and symbols that seem to float above a volcanic landscape. The burnt ground show the influence of the Spanish Civil War on Miro and his work.

Miró's radical, inventive style was a critical contributor in the early-20th-century avant-garde journey toward increasing and then complete abstraction.

Study Of Lucian Freud- Painting Of Man Enjoying Portrait Of Lucian Freud By Francis Bacon

SOLD

On my painting you see a man enjoying a portrait of artist Lucian Freud by Francis Bacon. It's the left panel of a triptych.

For a quarter of a century, Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon were the closest of friends. Their lives were characterized by an intense mutual scrutiny of each other and each other’s work, resulting in some extraordinary paintings and a deep but volatile relationship.

As Bacon later put it, “Who can I tear to pieces, if not my friends? If they were not my friends, I could not do such violence to them.” As two figurative artists working at a time when abstraction was the pervading fashion, their practices drew on these mutual processes of looking and criticizing to inform their painting. My figure is taking it all in.

Les Deux Femmes (Two Women)- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Fernand Léger

SOLD

Fernand Léger embraced the Cubist notion of fracturing objects into geometric shapes, but retained an interest in depicting the illusion of three-dimensionality.

Léger's unique brand of Cubism was also distinguished by his focus on cylindrical form and his use of robot-like human figures that expressed harmony between humans and machines.

Influenced by the chaos of urban spaces and his interest in brilliant, primary color, Léger sought to express the noise, dynamism, and speed of new technology and machinery that captured the optimism of the pre-World War I period.

SOLD

Mont Sainte-Victoire Seen From Bellevue is a landscape painting by French artist Paul Cézanne. The subject of the painting is the Montagne Sainte-Victoire in Provence in southern France.

Cézanne spent a lot of time in Aix-en-Provence at the time, and developed a special relationship with the landscape. This particular mountain, that stood out in the surrounding landscape, he could see from his house, and he painted it in on numerous occasions.

The painting shows clearly Cézanne's project of rendering order and clarity to natural scenes, without giving up the optical realism of Impressionism. Both the light and the colours of the painting give the impression of a pattern that is not imposed on nature, but is there naturally.
