Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: School of Paris
In the late 19th century Paris became the center of the Western art world. As a result, the turn of the century brought an influx of artists from all over the world to the city. Within the cafes, salons, and shared workspaces of Montmartre, these artists traded the influences of their diverse backgrounds and blended the techniques of their respective traditions. Read more about this in today’s Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day.

Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Helen Frankenthaler
“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

Perhaps best known for her monumental work “Rhapsody” (1975-1976), Jennifer Bartlett has explored the foundations of the painting medium for over forty years. As a young artist, Bartlett was impressed by Sol LeWitt’s 1967 essay “Paragraphs on Conceptual Art,” and became fascinated with artistic applications of Chaos Theory. Despite being one of the most commercially successful female artists of the 1970s, Bartlett has long been overlooked. LAMA is pleased to be offering to the public for auction this important work by Bartlett in the November 18, 2018 Auction from the Collection of Gerard L. Cafesjian.

Italian sculptor Enzo Plazzotta attended the Accademia di Brera in Milan in the late 1930s. With the guidance of Francesco Messina and Giacomo Manzù, Plazzotta began investigating the power of movement and the human body through traditional bronze casting techniques. Throughout his career, Plazzotta remained committed to classical form and emulated Beaux-Arts figuration. LAMA is pleased to offer “Jilly Relaxing” in the September 30, 2018 Modern Art & Design auction.
