Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Hyperrealism

November 15, 2018

Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Hyperrealism

Like the broader Photorealist movement, hyperrealist figurative sculpture grew out of the Pop instincts of the 1950s and 60s. Just as Warhol and Lichtenstein had done before them, hyperrealists drew attention to the uneventful, everyday encounters of an increasingly commercialized culture. In Sunday’s auction we are excited to present five works by leading hyperrealist sculptors, Duane Hanson, John De Andrea, and Carole Feuerman.

Artist Spotlight: Milton Avery

November 7, 2018

Artist Spotlight of the Day: Milton Avery

Milton Avery began his study of abstract form at a time when such a style was certainly not popular in the United States. Deemed the “American Matisse,” Avery was highly influenced by the expressiveness of French Fauvism, whose members used color to express emotion rather than accurately represent their subject, though Avery’s color palette tended more towards the subtle pastels favored by the Impressionists than the bold colors of the Fauvists. Read more about Avery in today’s Artist Spotlight.
