Mike Bidlo: Art About Art

May 9, 2017

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Appropriation artist Mike Bidlo is best known for his “Masterpieces Series,” for which he produced precise replicas of canonical works by modernist masters. Bidlo’s homages deliberately emulate the works of those mythologized as artistic geniuses, such as Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, and Pablo Picasso. ‘Not Brancusi’ (1985) mimics Constantin Brancusi’s famed marble sculpture Mademoiselle Pogany, in this case carved from wood, not stone.

Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Richard Prince

February 17, 2016

Lot 189, Richard Prince, Bedtime Story (1988)

Learn what Richard Prince’s Bedtime Story has in common with the work of artists as various as Andy Warhol, John McLaughlin, and Donald Judd in today’s Peter’s Auction Pick. “To my mind, one of the hallmarks of a great work of art is that it resonates with associations and allusions. By that measure, Bedtime Story—the cover lot in our February 21st Auction of modern art and design—is a tour de force.”
