NEW YORK, NY.- Two Assemblage Paintings by Thornton Dial and A Rare Drawing by Anthony Bourdain Lead the Summer Fine Art Sale Now Open for Bidding on iGavelauctions

New York: Lark Mason Associates is pleased to announce that their Summer Fine Art Sale is now open for bidding on, now through July 21st. Leading the sale are two large scale assemblage paintings by the legendary self-taught artist Thornton Dial and Stay Calm, a rare comic drawing by Anthony Bourdain, the late iconic celebrity chef.

The two Dial works in the sale are Hiding From the Coon Dog: The First African in America, and Patches of Gold (Cornfields). As one of the important African American and Outsider artists, Thornton Dial created thought provoking works that not only blurred the boundary between painting and sculpture, but also addressed historical and sociopolitical issues such as war, natural disasters, slavery and racism.

Also offered are works by Sean Scully, Jim Dine, Wanda Gg, Thomas Hart Benton, Mexican American artist Elizabeth Catlett, and the British artist William Greengrass.

Rounding out the sale is a collection of watercolors by Egbert Cadmus (1868 - 1939) and illustration works by Maria Latasa Cadmus (unknown). Although better known as the parents of the American renowned artist Paul Cadmus, they were exceptional artists themselves. These works are part of the estate of Jon F. Anderson and all proceeds will go to benefit five charity organizations.
