Fine Art and Antiques from
Southern Estates and Collections

February 18 – March 7, 2016

The auction features a stellar group of contemporary prints by such artists as Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Robert Motherwell, Bridget Riley and Helen Frankenthaler. One of the standouts of this group is Warhol’s iconic image of Marilyn Monroe in a dramatic color wave of green, red and yellow, purchased in 1968 from the revered Miami art dealer Dorothy Berenson Blau.

Other highlights include two paintings by the Polish-born, Ohio-based artist Julian Stanczak. Stanczak, a student of Joseph Albers, held his first show in 1964 and was influential during the early Op Art movement. These two works are from his window series, created in the late 1970s-early’80s, and were purchased directly from the artist in the ’80s.

Also up for offer are drawings and prints by Ashcan School artists such as George Bellows, William Glackens, Robert Henri, George Luks, Everett Shinn and John Sloan. Works by other American artists include Thomas Hart Benton, Louis Betts, John Steurart Curry, Arthur Bowen Davies, Peter Hurd, Harry Roseland, Ben Shahn, Carleton Wiggins and Grant Wood.
