Jewelry by Margaret De Patta

January 11, 2019

After training as a sculptor and painter at the California School of Fine Arts, California native Margaret De Patta, began studying at the New York Arts Students League. It was in New York that the young artist was first immersed in the brand of Modernism that sprung from the influx of European émigré artists in the 1920s New York art scene. It wasn’t until 1929 however, after having returned to San Francisco, that De Patta took to the jewelry medium that would inevitably distinguish her career.

LAMA is pleased to offer 15 lots by artist Margaret De Patta in the February 17, 2019 auction.

“A really good picture looks as if it’s happened at once. It’s an immediate image…one really beautiful wrist motion that is synchronised with your head and heart, and you have it, and therefore it looks as if it were born in a minute.” –Helen Frankenthaler

Artist Spotlight: Lisa Yuskavage

September 10, 2018

From the time she was young girl, Lisa Yuskavage understood paintings as portals. “The work carries markers of the artist’s inner life,” she says, “art is a seance.” Yuskavage maintains a highly sophisticated notion of the art experience and imbues her practice with great philosophical depth, something Jarret Earnest refers to as her sincere “belief in art.”
