Event Description

Boston, Mass – January 23, 2012 – Skinner, Inc. will auction prints, photographs, paintings and sculptures on Friday, February 3rd in two sessions at their Boston gallery. The prints and photography portion of the sale will begin at 12 p.m.; paintings and sculptures at 4 p.m.

 

Prints

Skinner recently has seen strong growth in the area of prints, drawings, and photography and will present an excellent assortment of work on paper in the upcoming sale. Highlights include works of Jasper Johns, Gustave Baumann, Jacques Villon, and M.C. Escher.

 

Jasper Johns frequently interpreted the same subject matter in different media at different points in his career. In 1955 Johns created an encaustic painting with collage and plaster cast elements. He revisited this same composition 25 years later, reinterpreting it in the 1980 etching Target with Plaster Casts (lot 75) estimated to sell between $20,000 and $25,000. 

 

A woodblock print by Gustave Baumann will also be offered. The Ridge Road (lot 15), a color woodcut design, is estimated between $3,000 and $5,000 and features one of the first examples of Baumann’s use of the “hand-in-heart” chop mark. This exemplary piece demonstrates the style that would later cause Baumann to be regarded as one of the premiere woodcut artists in early 20th century America.

 

Several works by Jacques Villon will be up for bid, most notably a print of L’Espagnole (lot 177) estimated between $6,000 and $8,000. This work, which copies the eponymous portrait by Henri Matisse, shows Villon’s skill at capturing the styles of his contemporaries in intaglio print. Also offered will be Villon’s interpretation of Marcel Duchamp’s La Mariée from 1934 (lot 178), estimated between $1,500 and $2,000, and a number of Villon’s own designs including Minne étendue dans un rocking-chair, le repos from 1907 (lot 174) estimated between $700 and $900.

 

The classic image from 1944, Encounter (lot 43), from the ever-popular Dutch artist M.C. Escher, is estimated between $15,000 and $20,000.

 

Photography

A collection of photographs from a former film expert and technician at Polaroid Corporation will be offered. It includes the black-and-white Minor White (lot 241), estimated between $400 and $600, and a group of 17 Polaroid images (lot 208) taken for a 1972 film produced by Charles and Ray Eames to promote the Polaroid SX-70 camera. The group of photos is estimated to sell between $1,200 and $1,800.

 

Multiple images by rock and roll photographer Jim Marshall will be sold, including a 1963 photograph of Bob Dylan, Dylan – Seventh Ave. N.Y.C. (lot 227) estimated between $1,800 and $2,200.

 

Modernist Paintings

American modernist works are well represented with notable examples including Maurice Brazil Prendergast’s watercolor entitled Maine (lot 446) estimated between $25,000 and $30,000, and an untitled work by Lyonel Feininger (lot 602) estimated between $20,000 and $40,000. Marsden Hartley’s Two Gulls (lot 607) is estimated between $10,000 and $15,000; Autumn Tree (lot 626) by Milton Clark Avery is estimated between $20,000 and $30,000; and John Marin’s Mt. Washington (lot 618) is estimated between $30,000 and $50,000.
