LONDON.- The Impressionist and Modern Art Day and Works on Paper Sale on 1 July brings together a wide range of works by 20th century masters, including Hannah Höch, who opens the sale with three works including Der Jahresablauf (1939, estimate: £100,000-150,000). Der Jahresablauf examines the universal and timeless theme of the cycle of life, a subject which greatly intrigued the artist at this time. Leading the sale is an ethereal work on paper by Marc Chagall, Coucher de soleil et coq au double-profil ou Le souvenir de la ville (1971, estimate: £400,000-600,000). The colouring of this artwork evokes the South of France and the composition employs some of Chagall's favourite artistic subjects. Further highlights include Joan Miró’s Nocturne (1942, estimate: £120,000-180,000) and Leonard Tsuguharu Foujita’s, Maternité (1954, estimate: £120,000-180,000). Foujita developed a type of doll-like portraiture in the early 1950s, which is exemplified in Maternité.

Further masterpieces from the 20th century include paintings by Albert Gleizes with Paysage à Meudon (1911, estimate: £250,000-350,000), Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s La prairie (1880, estimate: £180,000-250,000), painted during a time in his career when he was experimenting with landscape painting, as well as with light and colour. Works on paper by Pablo Picasso Buste (1972, estimate: £150,000-200,000), and a sculpture by Henry Moore Rocking Chair No. 4: Miniature, (1950, estimate: £200,000-300,000) are all presented. Wassily Kandinsky’s Blau in Rund und Spitz, (1933, estimate: £80,000-120,000) is part of a group focusing on German works, together with Kurt Schwitters, Mz 259 Zeichnung Campendonk (1921, estimate: £120,000-180,000), which incorporates scrap elements such as leaflets cut outs, receipts, and a 30-pfennig 1920 stamp, fully demonstrating Schwitters’ creative process. Walter Dexel’s 1922 VIII A (1922, estimate: £120,000-180,000), is a superb example of Dexel’s distinct Constructivist style and dates from a key period when the artist came into close contact with a network of influential figures of the early 20th century art circuit. There are two other Walter Dexel works offered in the sale Der Schwarzhändler or Der Ganster, Der (1930, estimate: £20,000-25,000) and Ohne Titel (1969, estimate: £10,000-15,000).

David Hockney originally co-designed the menus at Odin’s with fellow artist Patrick Procktor. Günther Förg’s Untitled, (2006, estimate: £280,000-350,000) is part of Forg’s celebrated ‘Gitterbilder’ or ‘Grid Paintings’ series.
