DALLAS, TX.- Pablo Picasso’s Déjeuner sur l'herbe, 1962, and Amedeo Modigliani’s Femme nue assise, 1916, are both expected to bring more than $80,000 to lead a pack of art world giants in Heritage Auctions’ May 22 Modern & Contemporary Art Signature® Auction, taking place at the company’s Dallas Design District Annex, 1518 Slocum Street.

“This is a very exciting auction to be a part of,” said Ed Beardsley, Vice President and Managing Director of the Department of Fine and Decorative Arts at Heritage. “Our specialists have searched far and wide to cull the best available examples, at a variety of price points, and tailored it to appeal to buyers across the spectrum.”

Andy Warhol, arguably America’s most revered Modern artist, is amply represented in the auction, with a variety of iconic color screenprints, led by the superb trio of Superman (from Myths), 1981 (estimate: $80,000+), Moonwalk, 1987 (estimate: $60,000+) and Marilyn, 1967 (estimate: $50,000+).

Manuel Neri’s Rosa Negra #1, 1984 (estimate: $80,000+) provides an intriguing and sure to be popular sculptural element to the auction while Cuban-American painter Julio Larraz’s elegiac The Spider, 1980 (estimate: $60,000+) evokes his Caribbean homeland with grace and beauty. Columbian legend Fernando Botero, one of the world’s most popular artists, provides a prominent highlight in the form of his mixed media masterpieceEstudio Sobre un Tema del Mantegña, 1958 (estimate: $50,000+).

The focus on great Contemporary American artists is lead by David Bates’ Still Life with Face Jug , 1984 (estimate: $50,000+), Justin Faunce’s stunning Go Team, 2004 (estimate: $50,000+) and Dale Chihuly’s intriguing Water Reed Installation, 1997 (estimate: $40,000+).
