Fine European Art Auction Exceeds 1.3 Million at Heritage Auctions

Heritageeuropeanauction

May 24 sale sees Henrietta Rae’s Psyche surpass $300,000

DALLAS (May 26, 2017) – Regarded by many as the most significant and ambitious work of the Victorian artist’s career, Henrietta Rae’s Psyche before the throne of Venus sold for $324,500, the second-highest price ever for the artist at auction, to lead Heritage Auction’s $1.3+ million Fine European Art auction.

Psyche features a total of 14 full-length figures, and is a testament to Rae’s celebrity as the finest woman painter of the female nude in pre-modern Britain. The work subsequently was owned by “celebrity collectors” William Randolph Hearst and Amon G. Carter.

“There is no doubt that Henrietta Rae set out to create a major artistic statement when she painted Psyche before the throne of Venus,” notes Dr. Marianne Berardi, Senior European Painting Expert at Heritage. “This mythological composition not only took her over two years to complete, but required that she build a new painting studio in order to accommodate its ambitious dimensions. It’s wonderful that Rae, who had to contend with so much chauvinism in the male-dominated art world of her time, chose to paint this myth that was populated entirely by women.”

French artists filled out the remaining top spots in the auction, with French Post-Impressionist Henri Baptiste Lebasque’s Sur les bords de la Marne, 1901 large tour de force selling for $125,000 and Fauvist Maurice de Vlaminck’s Rue de village, circa 1920-22 and Ferme gaveling for $65,625 and $57,500, respectively.

French academic painter Guillaume-Charles Brun’s work The young rag seller, 1870 sold for $52,500, while noted French cityscape painter Maurice Utrillo’s Rue Lepic à Montmartre sold for $48,750.

Belgian artist Anto Carte’s The Annunciation, 1923 sold for $47,500. A large painting of the The Virgin Mary adoring the Christ Child, circa 1645 by rare Baroque painter Matteo Loves brought $32,500.

Additional highlights include, but are not limited to:

Neige, circa 1890 by Jean-Baptiste-Armand Guillaumin: Realized $45,000

Paysage d’automne aux environs de Saint-Tropez, 1922 by Henri Charles Manguin: Realized $42,500

Divinitié, 1967 by Vu Cao Dam: Realized $37,500

Art of the West Debuts in June 10-12 Fine and Decorative Arts Auction

DixonHeritage

Highlights from premier western artists include Maynard Dixon, Gene Kloss, Harry Jackson and Phillip Goodwin

 

DALLAS, Texas (May 24, 2017) – Heritage Auctions is pleased to debut Art of the West, which will be included in theJune 10 Fine and Decorative Arts including Estate auction and showcases over 100 paintings by historical and contemporary Western Artists. June’s Art of the West division will feature entry level price points as well as strong quality works from artists such as Maynard Dixon, Gene Kloss, Harry Jackson and Phillip Goodwin.

 

“As the western market continues to thrive and market values continue to increase, I wanted to make sure that Western Art remains accessible to collectors at various levels,” explained Director of Western Art Alissa Ford. “This mid-season sale also allows consignors to participate in an earlier auction if waiting for the fall is not an option.”

 

Dixon moved in 1940 to Tucson, Arizona, where he began to explore the Hispanic and Native American life of the region.Portrait of a Native American, 1940 (est. $3,000-5,000) is most likely the product of the artist spotting a compelling subject on one of his explorations and creating a highly finished work accentuating the striking features of the young woman.

GoodwinHeritage

Goodwin’s The Hunter (est. $2,000-3,000) is an appealing study that depicts his love for hunting, fishing, cowboy scenes and scenes featuring firearms.

 

Any collection of western memorabilia isn’t complete without a work by the renowned novelist and cowboy artist Will James. His dynamic sketch To the Boy Scouts, Hoping you Never Lose a Stirrup, study, 1926 (est. $3,000-5,000) illustrates James’ talent for capturing the energetic movement and iconic imagery of the life of the cowboy.

 

Several outstanding works represent the female artists of the West, including Ila McAfee’s Fawn (est. $2,000-3,000), which captures her lifelong love for modeling animals, and Gene Kloss’ etchingsStaurolite Ledge Above Taos, 1973 (est. $1,000-1,500) and Age-old Rhythm, 1973 (est. $800-1,200) which demonstrates Kloss’ nationally acclaimed and meticulous etching methods depicting the life and landscape of the Southwest. Louisa McElwain’s Silver Rain (est. $4,000-6,000) also displays her love for the Southern landscape through the use of a bold palette and strong surface aesthetics created by use of the palette knife.

 

Among the highlights of the sale, which include a strong representation of western and wildlife sculpture, is Harry Jackson’s Pony Express III (est. $2,000-3,000).

 

Noted contemporary western artists in the June auction include Ray Swanson, Joe Velazquez and Tim Solliday. Swanson’s Navajo Brothers, 1975 (est. $6,000-8,000), Velazquez’s Approach of a New Season (est. $3,000-5,000) and Solliday’s Desert Landscape (est. $4,000-6,000) are all highly refined works that capture the beauty of the great American West.

 

Heritage Auctions continues to grow the market for Art of the West, and is looking continually for original pieces through consignment. Contact Alissa Ford at 214-409-1926 or alissaf@ha.com if you are interested in consigning your Art of the West.

Studio Portrait Lighting Intensive

A Weekend Workshop: June 17 & 18

 studioportraitlighting
This weekend intensive is a thorough, hands-on exploration of the fundamentals of portrait lighting in the studio. From the simplest of lighting set-ups to the most complex configuration, the starting point of any lighting formula is the key light. Knowing how and where to place the primary light source is crucial. This is where we will begin in Studio Portrait Lighting Intensive.

On day one you will learn how to competently use a single light source and you’ll begin to see first-hand just how creatively flexible single source lighting can be. On day two we’ll add more lights, experiment with reflectors, fill light, feathering, edge lighting and how to interact with a subject. You’ll get to put all of your new knowledge to work with real models.

Hidden Nature Sopheap Pich at Crow Collection of Asian Art, opens Saturday, June 24, 2017

Crow Collection of Asian Art

www.crowcollection.org

Image Credit:  Sopheap Pich, Rang Phnom Flower, 2015. Bamboo, rattan, metal wire, plywood, steel, metal bolts. 325 x 180 x 65 inches (825.5 x 457 x 165 cm) (approximate). Image courtesy of Tyler Rollins Fine Art.

The Crow Collection of Asian Art is pleased to announce the presentation of a solo exhibition of the work of Sopheap Pich, recognized today as Cambodia’s most internationally prominent contemporary artist. This exhibition will feature his large-scale sculpture, Rang Phnom Flower (2015), his most ambitious single-form sculpture to date. Twenty-five feet in length, its complex construction is composed of hundreds of strands of rattan and bamboo. The sculpture is that of the cannonball tree (“rang phnom” in Khmer), which in Southeast Asia is associated with the sal tree under which the Buddha was born. This tree is often planted near Buddhist temples; many can be found around the temples near Pich’s studio on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. In fact, the plant originated in the Americas and was introduced by Europeans to Sri Lanka, where it was soon revered for its resemblance to the sal tree, which does not grow in tropical climates. It was then brought to Southeast Asia by Sri Lankans, who were responsible for the revitalization of Buddhism in that region. Pich’s tree is created at enormous over-sized scale, which conveys the power of nature, but also brings forward the plant’s abstract qualities by using precise grid–like structure and geometric shapes, in order to consider concepts of scale, the natural and the industrial, and the large that can be found within the small.

Hidden Nature: Sopheap Pich will be on view from June 24, 2017-January 7, 2018 in the Mezzanine.

About the Artist:

Sopheap Pich (b. 1971) is recognized today as Cambodia’s most internationally prominent contemporary artist.  Born in Battambang, Cambodia, he moved with his family to the United States in 1984, and received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999.  In 2002, he returned to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he continues to be based.  Pich is known for working with local materials such as bamboo, rattan, burlap from rice bags, beeswax and earth pigments gathered from around Cambodia and making sculptures that are inspired by bodily organs, vegetal forms, and abstract geometric structures.  His childhood experiences during the genocidal conditions of late 1970s Cambodia has had a lasting impact on his work, informing its themes of time, memory and the body.

His work has been featured in numerous international museum exhibitions and biennials throughout the world, notably Documenta 2012, and a 2013 solo exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (Cambodian Rattan: The Sculptures of Sopheap Pich), which was the museum’s first solo show given to a contemporary Southeast Asian artist.  Major museum collections of his work include The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), M+ Museum for Visual Culture (Hong Kong), Singapore Art Museum, Queensland Art Gallery, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo), and Cleveland Museum of Art.  Most recently, he has been selected to present in the main exhibition at this year’s 57th International Venice Biennale (La Biennale di Venezia), Viva Arte Viva, curated by Christine Macel.

Entry Deadline: 6/1/17

The Public Art Program of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs requests the submission of qualifications from artists for consideration to design, fabricate and install a free-standing, outdoor public artwork that will be a tribute to the life and work of Dallas artist Arthello Beck, Jr.

This Panel will be especially timely as the pace of these relocations and corporate campuses has dramatically accelerated in recent years. The Panel will also project what, in the view of our Moderator and Panelists, needs to happen in the next twenty years. The result will be an engaging and thought-provoking discussion for our attendees.”

How have corporate landscapes changed over the last twenty years and how have they influenced the quality of life of our city and the character of our communities? “The Urban Burbs” will look at the evolution of suburban corporate campuses and the future of work in Dallas.  Important factors that will be discussed include amenity rich environments, a sense of community desired by employees of these companies, and the maturation of the suburbs including opportunities for recreation, entertainment, the arts and culture.

Woodturning Art Exhibit in June at The Artists Showplace Gallery

Gary Sanders1

The Artists Showplace Gallery is pleased to present the stunning work of nationally recognized woodturners Kevin Bassett and Gary Sanders from Saturday, June 3, to Friday, June 30. A reception to meet the artists will be held on Saturday, June 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

Kevin Bassett’s interest in the art of woodturning evolved from his extensive study of plant pathology in his home state of Colorado, followed by a distinguished 40-plus-year career as a certified arborist. He describes his work as a collaboration with nature. “Even though I choose the shape, form and utility of a piece of a tree, ultimately the tree has its own voice. I am only a conduit through which the tree is able to speak.”

Gary Sanders, a retired firefighter from Greenville, Texas, began woodturning professionally in 1993. His artwork has been accepted into national juried woodturning exhibitions, and he has work in private collections and museums. Gary teaches locally and has conducted woodturning demonstrations across the country and in Australia. He is known for his finishing techniques and his eye for detail.

3rd Saturday Watercolor Workshops – May 20 with Naomi Brotherton

Naomi Brotherton Pasture Gate

Landscape Workshops in Transparent Watercolor by Naomi Brotherton

10AM – 2:30PM Intermediate and up

Plans for May 20th: “Light Bounce or Reflected Light” or you may work on your own project.

If you have a project you would like to have help with, do bring it. Be sure to bring your reference material.

I have been thinking of the conditions of light, especially sunlight on a white object. Of course I think of a white building (house), but it could be still life. White objects and we’ll use light bounce (reflected light).
I’ll bring some possible subject matter in case you don’t have something.
This will be one of our “Times of Day” lessons. It can apply to any subject with bright light.

I hope to see you on May 20, 10 to 2:30 or so. Bring your lunch or there are several restaurants in the area.

We will talk about plans for summer sessions on the 3rd Saturday

Jorge Alegria: Supernova at Kirk Hopper

supernovaalegrialeft: Jorge Alegría. Nemotids, 2017. 11 x 14 inches. Graphite on paper.

SUPERNOVA | JORGE ALEGRÍA

May 13 – June 24, 2017

 

Kirk Hopper Fine Art (3008 Commerce Street) is pleased to welcome our first solo exhibition for artist Jorge Alegría, entitled SUPERNOVA.  This exhibit will feature Alegría’s most recent drawings and opens Saturday, May 13th, with a public reception for the artist from 6.00 – 8.00 p.m.

Kirk Hopper Fine Art is located at 3008 Commerce Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday from 12pm – 6pm or by appointment. Phone: 214-760-9230, Email: giovanni@kirkhopperfineart.com, Website: www.kirkhopperfineart.com

Supernova is a further exploration into the visual imagination of Jorge Alegría’s series, Heaven: The War of the Angels. Heaven is a series of works based on a personal fictional narrative of the same name, originating from the Bible, spanning the cosmos and centuries into the future. The new drawings represent scenes of environments, creatures, and civilizations found in events from that narrative.

Alegría’s seductively detailed drawings tap into his stream of consciousness and pull from his boyhood interests of dinosaurs, bible stories, bird watching, and ant farms to create a dark and dystopian world. The War of the Angels begins during the story of Noah, with people and animals being gathered and relocated throughout the cosmos, while a distant angel seeks revenge by inflicting catastrophe. Alegría’s drawings reveal the fragility of our own reality and how disconnected we have become from grace and redemption. His drawings reflect a life of complex moods for complex times.

 

Biography

Jorge Alegría is a native of Corpus Christi, Texas. He studied at Del Mar College and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. Alegría has been exhibiting his work regionally for nearly two decades. Recent group exhibitions include the contemporary drawing biennial Texas Draws III at Southwest School of Art in 2014 and Slipstream, curated by Susie Kalil at Kirk Hopper Fine Art in 2016. In 2004, he and a friend started the independent art space Residence, hosting critiques, curating exhibits, and posting art reviews. The space was revived in 2013, renamed The Living Room, which featured one-night shows of selected artists. Alegría is represented in several collections, including the Art Museum of South Texas.

The Nasher presents Roni Horn’s Glass Sculptures

RoniHorn Nasher-roni-horn-press-release-web

First American museum exhibition of artist’s large-scale glass sculptures

DALLAS, Texas (March 20, 2017) – The Nasher Sculpture Center announces its
2017 summer show Roni Horn, featuring large scale, cast glass works by the
American artist. The exhibition will be on view May 20 – August 20, 2017.

Encompassing sculpture, drawing, collage, photography, and artist’s books, Roni
Horn (b.1955) has created a rich body of work over nearly four decades that has
already left a significant mark on contemporary art. Sculpture is an important aspect
of Horn’s oeuvre, and the artist frequently includes three-dimensional works in her
photography and drawing installations. For her Nasher show, eight large-scale
cylindrical cast glass sculptures of varying colors will occupy the museum’s main
gallery. It will be the artist’s first U.S. museum presentation of her work since 2010
and the first to focus specifically on her cast glass sculpture.

“Roni Horn is one of those rare artists that can carry the vocabulary of many
mediums with equal aplomb, always with mesmerizing efficiency and sharp
intelligence,” says Director Jeremy Strick. “Her projects related to language, the
body, and place encourage a thoughtfulness akin to contemplation, and these large
glass sculptures are no exception. Though physically heavy, the seductive
translucence and polished surfaces of these solid glass works’ tease our powers of
perception, suggesting uncanny liquid depths and challenging us to be ever more
present to experience.”

Horn began making cast glass sculptures in the early 1990s. Created through a
labor- and time-intensive process, the works require three to four months to
complete. With their abstract forms and industrial fabrication processes, her
sculptures often borrow from the visual language of Minimalism, though Horn
imbues her work with personal meaning and references that distance it from the
strict autonomy characteristic of Minimalist sculpture. Her work instead acts as a
critical bridge connecting Minimalism and Post-Minimalism of the 1960s and 1970s
to contemporary art-making practices today. Within the Nasher galleries, her
sculptures will be infused with light, calling attention not only to their volumetric
forms, but also the reflective and translucent qualities of glass. The works in Roni
Horn defy traditional definitions of glass art, expanding the genre into the realm of
sculpture laden with weight and presence.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

Kim Wuz Here

Stylistically influenced by graffiti, torn layers of city billboards, and old building walls, artist Schmitt Thomas chooses subject matters ranging from personal to controversial, painful to provocative, ironic to bizarre. The artist explains, “Much of what I paint are stories taken from people’s everyday lives, including my own, or statements about common, yet questionable, societal behaviors that have become generally accepted as the norm. Because the “everyday” is something that often gets overlooked or seen with indifference, this body of work is filled with commotion, perplexity, exaggeration and over-simplification in order to grab the viewer’s attention and cause them to really observe, decipher, and hopefully see these everyday happenings from a new perspective.”

Kim Schmitt Thomas was born in 1970 in the Hell’s Kitchen area of NYC to two young actors, then later raised in nearby Bergen County, NJ, where she currently works and resides with her husband and 4 year old twin girls.

The last two decades have seen a monumental shift in historic preservation both in Dallas and across the country. This is reflective of a broader renewed interest in the built environment – old and new – specifically how buildings, landscapes and places impact our lives. Twenty years ago, there was very little research on the physical and mental impact of buildings and landscapes. Today there are many more studies available on the subject, as well as a greater general interest in how our surroundings affect our bodies and minds. 
 
It has been said that historic preservation efforts are like a town’s autobiography. The decision to keep or demolish something for the future is based on the values of a particular time and place and attitude. Dallas’s citizens are increasingly interested in the decision-making process that determines what their surroundings look like and how it will affect them. The Demolition Delay ordinance as one example of the citizenry’s growing focus on the preservation decisions being made in their city. The quality and quantity of the city preservation staff has grown to a complete office, and many team members hold degrees in historic preservation related fields. Many internal changes such as increased training, education, and public outreach are happening as a result of the Downtown Preservation Solutions Committee.
 
While there is clearly an increased interest in the historic built environment from both the public and local government, the decisions that impact citizens are still largely unguided.  With no city planning department, there is a lack of vision and coordination in how the city develops and re-develops. We are working off a Preservation Plan from 1987 and our surveys are decades old. These tools need to be updated to guide future development and preservation efforts.

Samuel Lynne Galleries To Represent Internationally Acclaimed Artist, Metis Atash

Screen Shot 2017-04-20 at 1.02.01 PM

Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce our exclusive Texas representation of Miami-based fine art sculptor, Metis Atash. Atash’s creations combine conceptual, minimalist, and pop art traditions. Her devotion for art, design, and fashion is apparent in her one-of-a-kind sculptures that award their living spaces with an aura of captivating experience. The gallery will present a showcase of her stunning “Punk Buddha” series in an exhibition titled “Buddha Goes Punk”. The artist will be in attendance at the exhibition, which will be on view from May 13, 2017 through June 24, 2017.

Born and raised in Munich, Metis Atash is German by nationality, but truly a citizen of the world. Her vast global travels led her to the Indonesian Island of Bali, where the lifestyle, culture, and philosophies quickly resonated with her, and eventually became the trajectory for her artistic style and her purpose as an artist. Bali is a place where love is the only energy to be found, and the location has appropriately become the source of inspiration for her “Punk Buddha” pieces. These unique sculptures are a fusion of worldly pleasures and spiritual insights, which have come to redefine the meaning of living. The sculptural figures radiate a presence far greater than their child-like size, due to their sparkling materiality and strong totemic essence.

Samuel Lynne Galleries will showcase Atash’s signature series of “Punk Buddha” sculptures that have gained widespread popularity around the world. Sculpted in fiberglass, covered with acrylic paint, and meticulously bathed by hand in upwards of 20,000 Swarovski crystals, this collection embodies the artist’s life journey, and her associations to Daoism. All her pieces are subject to a multi-step process of clay modeling, molding, sculpting, sanding, and lacquering. The objects of her work are based on the spiritual being, and these Buddha sculptures are inspired by ancient Daoist teachings. “Dao” translates to “path” or “way of life” and Atash has ensured that her creations reflect this property. They are also a reflection of her respect for Haute Couture, as well as contemporary art history. Each “Punk Buddha” is named for an iconic figure in fashion and art – from Basquiat to Balmain, Warhol to Hermes, Kusama to Chanel. With their dazzling exteriors, each resting figure is aimed to be perceived as the mirror of our eternal souls. They are a reflection of the relationship between humanity and the cosmos, health and longevity, action through inaction, and they represent the duality of life – the spiritual and the physical of our beings that produce harmony within the universe.

Atash’s entrepreneurial spirit has lead to the rise of her work around the globe. Her artwork has been exhibited in select galleries throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe, and has been featured in important international magazine publications such as Vogue, Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, and Haute Living.

For additional information or to schedule an interview or exclusive press preview, please contact

Kristin Rivas, Director of Samuel Lynne Galleries, 214.965.9027, Kristin@SamuelLynne.com
