Abstract Expressionism was the dominant style of art in America from 1950 to 1965. The June 10, 2018 Modern Art & Design Auction features a number of strong paintings from some legendary figures in the movement.
LAMA Director of Modern Design and Fine Art Peter Loughrey sums up the best of the May 22, 2016 Modern Art & Design Auction underdogs – “For one reason or another, there are sometimes pieces offered in our sales that, as they say in the movie business, don’t find their audience. Here are several that I believe deserve a second look.” Peter’s Post-Auction Picks include works by Norman Bluhm, Hans Wegner, Arthur Espenet Carpenter, Richard Neutra, and Robert Sonneman.
We tend to think of artistic creativity as a solo act. In the popular imagination, a painter or sculptor works alone in a studio, driven by singular personal genius. Several lots in LAMA’s February 21st sale of modern art, however, demonstrate how frequently art is the result of collaboration. Many of these are examples of technical cooperation. Others arise from friendly participation in a project. But a few works represent a true synthesis of creative minds. Of these, one name recurs: Frank O’Hara. LAMA’s upcoming auction features several collaborative artworks, including four pieces made in collaboration with O’Hara.
