Max Ernst’s “Volto” – Surrealism in Glass

September 25, 2014

Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Dadaist and Surrealist Max Ernst (1891-1976) lived a life befitting an artistic itinerant of the Belle Époque, traversing cities including Cologne, Paris, and Beverly Hills. His marriage to Peggy Guggenheim from 1942-1946 brought him to New York, and it was this partnership that encouraged his later experiments in glass, as seen in Volto (1964). LAMA is pleased to present this work at the October 12, 2014 Modern Art & Design Auction.
