Leslie Sacks Fine Art opens an exhibition showcasing the most recent additions to the collection
David Hockney (b. 1937), Big Celia Print #1, 1981. Lithograph. Sheet: 47 1/2 x 56 1/2 inches, Arches cover. Edition of 100 plus 23 proofs. Signed, dated and numbered in pencil.
LOS ANGELES, CA.- Leslie Sacks Fine Art, Brentwood presents an exhibition showcasing the most recent additions to the gallery’s collection of works by modern and contemporary masters. Among the works featured in this final summer exhibition is a rare color etching with aquatint by California luminary Richard Diebenkorn entitled Touched Red from 1991. There has been a recent resurgence of attention, recognition and demand for Diebenkorn’s work following a blockbuster traveling exhibition of his acclaimed Ocean Park Series, which recently closed its West Coast leg at the Orange County Museum of Art in Newport Beach. Touched Red echoes the Ocean Park paintings, but brings the famous motif of the historic works into the more intimate space of the print through Diebenkorn’s mastery of etching and aquatint.

Other important post-war and contemporary works in the exhibition include a large David Hockney lithograph entitled Big Celia Print #1 from 1981, as well as a woodcut by Helen Frankenthaler from her famous Tales of Genji series, 1998. Generally speaking, Frankethaler’s most important works are her woodblock prints, inspired by the traditional Japanese ukiyo-e printing technique.

Modern works in the exhibition include a Pablo Picasso ceramic plate with a classically stylized profile of the artist’s muse and wife, Jacqueline Rogue, from 1956, a 1968 two-part punctured bronze by Italian artist Lucio Fontana from his Concetto Spaziale "Natura" series, and a standing female nude in ink, pastel and gouache from 1945 by Italian artist Marino Marini.

The gallery is located at 11640 San Vicente Boulevard in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Brentwood. Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday 10AM – 6PM. There is ample validated on-site parking. The telephone number is (310) 820-9448. This exhibition along with most of the gallery’s collection can be viewed online at www.lesliesacks.com.
