Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA) is delighted to present a remarkable painting by the celebrated artist Karl Benjamin, which will be available in our Fall 2017 Modern Art & Design Auction. Created in 1957, ‘Seascape’ is a classic example of Benjamin’s style. The composition is defined on three sides by a jagged blue border, which inscribes a series of pink, blue, and olive green triangles. These latter shapes are suggestive of landforms and the white and pale blue background can be read as an expanse of sky above this seascape.
