Boston, Mass. – September 6, 2013 – Skinner, Inc. will auction prints, photographs, paintings, and sculpture on Friday, September 20th at its Boston gallery for its highly anticipated fall American & European Works of Art sale. An important Fitz Henry Lane painting estimated at $1.2 to $1.8 million and a rare Conrad Wise Chapman work depicting the Confederate army highlight the auction, which also includes over 150 lots of dance-related art from the collection of Robert Bunting. The three sessions of the auction feature: prints and photography starting at 10 a.m., The Robert Bunting Dance Collection at 2 p.m., followed by paintings and sculpture.
Fine Prints and Photography
The September prints and photography auction offers more than 200 works ranging from the 16th through 21st centuries, with a strong representation of modern and contemporary artists including Chuck Close, Hodgkin, Lalla Essaydi, Edward Weston, Keith Haring, Berenice Abbott, Walker Evans, and Andy Warhol.
Prints by Old Masters include Rembrandt van Rijn’s Old Man with Divided Fur Cap (lot 137A, estimated at $6,000 to $8,000), The Whore of Babylon by Albrecht Dürer (lot 50, $2,000 to $3,000), Faith by Lucas van Leyden (lot 95, $300 to $500), and Agostino Carracci’s Apollo and the Python (lot 31, $300 to $500).
Contemporary highlights include a modernist linocut work titled Haulers by well-known Grosvenor School of Modern Art alumna Sybil Andrews (lot 7, $2,000 to $3,000). The linocuts of the Grosvenor School artists reflect the kinetic energy of the machine age imbued with the enthusiasm and optimism of the post-World War I era. Andrews used streamlined geometric forms and pattern in conjunction with a saturated reductive palette to create the power and excitement of motion as depicted in the present work.
