Frank Stella's Eskimo Curlew (3X) could bring $200,000+ at Heritage Auctions
Frank Stella (American, b. 1936), Eskimo Curlew (3X), 1977. Enamel, oilstick and crushed glass on corrugated aluminum, 54 x 69 x 13-1/2 in. Estimate: $200,000 - $300,000.
DALLAS, TX.- Eskimo Curlew (3X) by Frank Stella could bring $200,000+ to lead Heritage Auctions’ Modern & Contemporary Art Signature® Auction. More than 200 works of painting, sculpture and prints from important private collections nationwide make up the sale, which will be held Nov. 2 in Dallas.

“This auction is defined by expertise,” said Frank Hettig, Director of Modern & Contemporary Art at Heritage. “The paintings and sculpture show artists at their very best. Likewise, much of the auction is from private collectors at their most passionate.”

Highlights include Maria Helena Vieira da Silva’s untitled composition oil on canvas, acquired for a private collection, which could bring $120,000+. Robert Rauschenberg’s Orbit (Signal), a solvent transfer and painted paper collage on panel, which has been in a private collection since 1988, could sell for $80,000+ and the visually arresting Midtown – Suntory Whiskey by Sarah Morris, may bring as much as $40,000+.

A drawing titled Tartar, drawn circa 1982 by street artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, could sell for $70,000+ and an untitled painting by Cuban artist Mario Carreno may sell for $60,000+. Another private collector discovery is Jean Dufy’s Place de la Concorde, which is expected to bring $60,000+.

Already generating pre-auction interest, La Fille du Regiment Drawing 5, by George Condo, is expected to bring $50,000+ as is Hope, 2008, , given to the consigner as a gift from the artist Robert Indiana. Portrait de Kisling (double-sided portrait) by Amedeo Modigliani, is estimated to bring $40,000+.

Among the sculpture offered in the auction comes Sky Shovel by Louise Nevelson. Expected to bring $50,000+, the work has been exhibited at The Pace Gallery in addition and has remained in private collections until now. An imposing bronze by Jaume Plensa, The Personal Miraculous Fountain, stands 98-3/8” high and is also expected to bring $50,000+. Walking Couple III by Lynn Chadwick, could change hands for $30,000+.

Of the more unusual lots in the auction is Rotoreliefs by Marcel Duchamp. The six offset lithographs in color, were printed in 1953 as a gift to the gestalt psychologist Dr. Hans Wallach. Accompanying the disks is a letter from Duchamp explaining how the rotating art objects created an optical illusion. The effect was at the heart of his artistic vision depicting art as a conceptual tool. The set, from the first edition of 1,000 - of which 600 were accidentally destroyed - is expected to bring $15,000+.

Additional highlights include but are not limited by:

• Flash – November 22 (set of 11 screenprints in color) by Andy Warhol. Estimate: $28,000+.

• Azul-Verde-Amarillo by Gunther Gerzso. Estimate: $20,000+.

• Chiron by Nancy Grossman. Estimate: $20,000+.

• Still Life with “Femme au Coq” by Paul Wonner. Estimate: $10,000+.

• Klara, leading an extensive collection of sculptures by Robert Graham. Estimate: $15,000+.
