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.

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