Pablo Picasso (after) Portrait of a Girl (Maya in a Pinafore)
We are pleased to offer Portrait of a Girl (Maya in a Pinafore) by Pablo Picasso (after). This portrait features Picasso and Marie-Therese Walter’s daughter, María de la Concepción, called Maya. A playful, childlike nostalgia is evoked with this work, that also captures a time in Picasso’s life in which he was deeply inspired by his own family.
Affectionately, he made realistic drawings of Maya as a baby. His oil paintings of Maya mark a lightness that co-exist with very different works of that time. In the ‘30s dark imagery appears in response to the Spanish Civil War. Meanwhile, his portraits of Maya are full of a childlike pleasure.
Portrait of a Girl (Maya in a Pinafore) depicts his daughter at 3 years of age. The colors in this work are incredibly vibrant combinations that merely enhance and divulge Maya’s own personal character and innocence.
Based on an original oil work dating to 1938, this work has been printed by Fernand Mourlot under the supervision of Pablo Picasso. It is hand signed by Pablo Picasso in pencil in the lower right margin. For more information about Picasso or Portrait of a Girl (Maya in a Pinafore), please contact the gallery. Call For Value
Alex Katz Gray Ribbon
Gray Ribbon contains all the quintessential elements of an Alex Katz work; flat, monochromatic backgrounds, flat figures and faces rendered in bold lines, and Ada. For almost fifty years, the American painter and printmaker has created a series of portraits of his wife, Ada. Art historian Irving Sandler wrote in 1998, Ada “is woman, wife, mother, muse, model, sociable hostess, myth, icon, and New York goddess.”
Ada told the New York Times, “The thing I do remember from when we met is that I was sitting with my hands in my lap, and this guy that I was interested in was looking at my eyes, my ears, my shoulders. The whole thing was just very sensual. And I didn’t think I could handle it. But then it became just this thing that he did. I was sitting and he was painting, and that was it.”
Although the general public sees Alex Katz as a pop artist, he does not consider himself to be one. Rather than emanating from a graphic implementation, such as that which pervades the works of Robert Indiana or Roy Lichtenstein for example, his images always emanate from painting. Painting from life remains a staple of his practices today. For more information about Katz or Gray Ribbon, please contact the gallery. $5,000.00
Andy Warhol Committee 2000
This print is an example of Warhol’s modern take on the traditional still life painting, which aimed to recreate a scene in a manner as realistic as possible. Pop art in the 1960s and 1970s created a new form of still life. Much pop art (such as Andy Warhol's "Campbell's Soup Cans" ) is based on still life, but its true subject is most often the commodified image of the commercial product represented rather than the physical still-life object itself.
Committee 2000 depicts modern day objects; champagne glasses, horns and confetti. The brilliant blue, purple and vibrant hot pink coloring of the piece establish an extraordinary composition. These themes are present in Warhols other still lifes such as "Pears" from the portfolio Space Fruit. For more information about Warhol or Committee 2000, please contact the gallery. $6,500 framed
Sam Francis Untitled, from Michel Waldberg: Poemes dans le ciel
Sam Francis (June 25, 1923- November 4, 1994) was an American Painter and printmaker. He was loosely associated with a second generation of abstract expressionists, who were interested in the expressive use of color.
From the 1960s onward Sam Francis develops his very personal form of spontaneous drippings. He applies acrylic, oil and watercolors to the image carrier with revolving and splashing motions. Francis left much of his canvas unpainted, restricting his application of color to the edges, but he returned to a more lush and vibrant palette in the 1970s and ’80s and helped define a California school of modern abstract painting.
His examination of graphic art leads to some interesting experiments in the 1980s. Expressive compositions in several parts, partly with running colors, coin his work during these years. In 1984 Francis founded The Lapis Press with the goal of producing artists’ books with unusual and timely texts in visually compelling formats.
Untitled is a lithograph created in 1986 and is hand signed and numbered. The piece measures 29 7/8” x 22” and is fully referenced in SF-316. Edition number 100. Untitled is from Francis's six-print portfolio Michel Waldberg: Poemes dans le cel, with text by Waldberg. For more information about Francis or Untitled, please contact the gallery. $5,000 framed
