NEW YORK, NY -- On Wednesday, November 15, 2017 at 11am, Doyle will hold and auction of Post-War & Contemporary Art. The sale encompasses works by American, European, Latin American and Asian artists and spans artistic movements from Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art and Minimalism, through Fluxus and Mail Art, to Street Art.
One of Indonesia’s greatest Modernist painters, Affandi (1907-1990) employed an Expressionist style to depict the vividness he saw in the figures and everyday life of his culture, as reflected in an untitled 1969 work from a New York Estate (est. $100,000-150,000). Affandi had an aversion to using brushes, and instead applied paint directly from its tube and smeared it across the canvas with his hand – a practice that required furious energy.
Deborah Kass’ (b. 1952) Jewish Jackie series takes on Andy Warhol’s famed portraits of Jacqueline Kennedy and replaces them with Barbra Streisand, a figure the artist has identified with throughout her life. By co-opting Warhol’s celebrity portraits, Kass creates a platform to represent a larger-than-life female celebrity, challenging mainstream ideas on beauty and status (est. $20,000-40,000).
The Polish Expressionist Sigmund Menkes (1896-1986) exhibited with a group of fellow Eastern European artists in Paris before settling in New York in 1935. From the Estate of Rhoda Blumberg is an entrancing image of a young woman dressing her hair before a mirror that exemplifies his unique merging of energetic contours and sensuous color (est. $10,000-15,000).
