Estate-to-Wall: Modern art from Los Angeles estates goes to local auction house
Millard Sheets, The King's Tent, c. 1930. Provenance: Estate of Ruth & Dalzell Hatfield. Estimate: $30,000 – 50,000.

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Over 200 lots offered in LAMA’s upcoming October 13, 2013 Modern Art & Design Auction have never been offered on the market; many of which have remained in private, local collections for decades. Of the numerous local estates whose material is represented in this auction, the highlight is a collection of over 40 works from the Estate of Ruth & Dalzell Hatfield, key figures in the development of the L.A. art scene.

Dalzell Hatfield, like Felix Landau and Frank Perls, owned a gallery in Los Angeles, prior to the post-WWII art boom, which specialized in imported works by European artists and local modernists. The Dalzell Hatfield Galleries, in operation for nearly 50 years, was the leading gallery at the time for decorative arts and fine art by Gertrud & Otto Natzler, Millard Sheets, Maurice de Vlaminck, and Georges Rouault. LAMA will be offering a selection of paintings by Millard Sheets, ceramics by Glen Lukens and the Natzlers, and a grouping of 16 Pablo Picasso lithographs from the Vollard Suite.

Peter Loughrey, Director of Modern & Contemporary Fine Art: “Dalzell Hatfield was a visionary who fostered the modern art scene in Los Angeles. As a dealer in L.A. in the late 1920s to the early 1970s, he was educating Angelinos about modern art, and was therefore just as important to the development of modern art in L.A. as museums were.”

An impressive group of 13 Natzler ceramics from the Leopold and Patricia Hirschfeldt collection include some of the rarest works of the Natzlers’ career. Ranging from 1959-1966, these works exhibit rare forms, techniques, and glazes. Additionally, some of these works have been exhibited in landmark museum shows and have been illustrated in major catalogues. The Hirschfeldts’ lifelong friendship with Getrud and Otto Natzler started in the mid 1950s because of their shared passion for ceramics. The Hirschfeldts collected a number of the Natzlers’ early works, in addition to five miniatures, which were only produced between 1965-66. Currently, four Natzler works from the Hirschfeldts are in LACMA’s permanent collection.

Additional Fine Art highlights include a selection of 35 Latin American works deaccessioned from LACMA; a rare, important painting by Larry Rivers, White Bracelet (Valentine Painting) from 1959; paintings by Frederick Hammersley; Roy Lichtenstein’s Imperfect Print for B.A.M. and Moonscape; Ed Ruscha’s Vowel E painting; as well as works by Andy Warhol, De Wain Valentine, Ed Kienholz, Sheila Hicks, Chris Burden, and Dennis Hopper.

Design highlights include period-focused designs by Florence Knoll, as well as, two Arabia wall panels, two Paolo Venini sculptures from 1959, and lighting by Serge Mouille. The sale will also include offerings by Hans Wegner, Alvar Aalto, Tommi Parzinger, as well as a large living room collection by Frank Lloyd Wright designed for Heritage Henredon, featuring a sectional sofa and several tables.
