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.

Artist Spotlight: Maurice Utrillo

Maurice Utrillo made a splash in the Parisian art world at the tender age of 22. With the support of his mother, who was herself a painter and a frequent model for Renoir and Lautrec, Utrillo’s artistic identity sprung from the bohemian fodder of the Montmartre art scene at the turn of the twentieth century.
