NEW YORK, NY.-
Lark Mason Associates is pleased to announce that that its Autumn Fine Art sale, which includes a rare group of sketches by Pablo Picasso and an oversized Paul Jenkins watercolor are among the eclectic selection of Old Master, Modern and Contemporary works of art, which are now open for bidding on www.igavelauctions.com
through November 17th.
The sketches by Pablo Picasso and his daughter Maya Picasso provide an intimate glimpse into their creative relationship. The drawings were created for the amusement of his daughter and demonstrate Picassos masterful, yet playful ability as an artist. This collection was part of the estate of Marie-Thérèse Walter, who was Picassos lover and Mayas mother.
Paul Jenkins became known for his unique style of controlling the color as he worked. Using mainly a knife to create the depths and parameters of his color environments, Jenkins would serendipitously allow his pigments to pool and blossom along the surface. The encroaching colors relieving new ecologies of juxtapositions engage the viewer to look deeper externally, yet reflectively within themselves.
Rounding out the sale are works by Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, Richard Hamilton, Dan Christensen, Mary Bauermeister, George Bellows, George Tooker, and Red Grooms.
