Picasso's 'Grand Tete de Femme,' Warhol's '$' among highlights in Heritage Auctions' April Prints & Multiples Event
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Grande Tête de Femme, 1962. Linocut in colors on wove paper, 29-1/2 x 24-3/8 inches. Estimate: $60,000 - $80,000.

DALLAS, TX.- Headlined by some of the most famous and popular artists of all time, Heritage Auctions' April 19 Prints & Multiples Signature® Auction presents a who's who of the Modern & Contemporary Art landscape. Featuring a museum's worth of highlights, the event includes works by the likes of Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kehinde Wiley and so many more.

Among the featured works are nine pieces by Picasso, including 1962's Grande Tête de Femme (estimate: $60,000-$80,000) and Tête de Femme (estimate: $50,000-$70,000). Inspired by Jacqueline Roque, Picasso's last wife and muse, the striking Cubist linocuts depict an abstracted woman's face seen from several perspectives, allowing the viewer a variety of experiences in one image.

A multitalented artist, Picasso worked in ceramics as well, and four of his ceramic pieces are also available in this auction.

The April event also features a wonderful showing of works by the always-in-demand Warhol, whose 1983 Endangered Species portfolio sold for a near-record $1.875 million in Heritage's October 2021 Prints & Multiples auction.

Among the Warhol highlights in this event are 1982's $ (estimate: $40,000-$60,000) — a commentary on 1980s America's preoccupation with wealth and status — as well as two pieces from his iconic Cowboys and Indians portfolio and three from his Cow series.

Kehinde Wiley's After Sir Anthony Van Dyck's "Triple Portrait of Charles I," 2009 (estimate: $20,000-$30,000) is another standout in the event. One of today's most sought-after artists, Wiley was commissioned in 2017 to paint a portrait of former President Barack Obama for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. Like many of his pieces, the work featured in this auction pays tribute to an old master painting by re-creating a classical Renaissance pose with a contemporary subject.

In addition to showcasing the art world's top talents, this auction also aims for accessibility, a goal shared by many of its featured artists.

Influential pop artist Keith Haring, for instance, who is known for his colorful, cartoon-like images, wanted his art to be for the masses, an endeavor echoed by the curators of Heritage's Prints & Multiples category.

"Haring is representative of what we're trying to do with Prints & Multiples," says Heritage Auctions Consignment Director Rebecca Van Norman. "He didn't want his art to be just for the wealthy, because you can't challenge an idea if only 1 percent of the public is going to see it. Much like Haring, we want our Prints & Multiples department to be a little bit of everything for everybody."

Among the featured Haring lots in this auction are Pop Shop Quad V (A-D) (estimate:$25,000-$35,000), a portfolio of four 1989 screenprints from his New York City Pop Shop, plus two individual works: Untitled 4, from Fertility, 1983 (estimate: $20,000-$30,000) and Lucky Strike, 1987 (estimate: $10,000-$15,000).

Another big name on display is Jean-Michel Basquiat, one of the top-selling artists on the art market. Basquiat's auction record stands at an eye-popping $110 million for a single painting, but here his works are within reach, including 1982's Posterior View, from Anatomy (estimate:$8,000-$12,000) and a group of four pristine screenprints from 1982-83 still in their original box: Wolf Sausage, King Brand, Dog Leg Study and Undiscovered Genius (estimate: $30,000-$40,000).

"Again, it's about accessibility," Van Norman says.

Other noteworthy lots include:

• Various Artists The Leo Castelli 90th Birthday Portfolio, 1997 ($30,000-$50,000)
• Jasper Johns Ventriloquist, 1986 (estimate: $20,000-$30,000)
• Joan Mitchell Bedford II, 1981 (estimate: $10,000-$15,000)
• Louise Bourgeois Homely Girl, A Life, 1992 (estimate: $8,000-$12,000)
• Marc Chagall Le Chevalet aux Fleurs, 1976 (estimate: $8,000-$12,000)
