    Casco Bay Auctions to Offer Avant-Garde Artworks of Jean Tinguely and Roy Lichtenstein

    Swiss painter and sculptor Jean Tinguely was known for his Métamatics kinetic sculptures, which were highly inspired by Dadaism. In paintings as well, Tinguely used the rebellious Dadaist techniques such as assemblage and collage, relying on improvisation rather than tradition. An abstract work by the artist is a key highlight of the upcoming sale at Casco Bay Auctions. It is an untitled collage made using ribbon, yarn, stickers, marker, and watercolor. Like most Dada art, it has gibberish text scattered all over. Another noteworthy lot is American artist Roy Lichtenstein’s celebrated work titled Wham!. It’s a diptych depicting a missile-shooting fighter plane in the left-hand panel. The missile is shown hitting a second plane that explodes in the right-hand panel. Its onomatopoeic title is central to the action-packed scene. Like most of Lichtenstein’s work, this too is conceived from popular comic book panels.  A Hove Mobler lounge chair designed by Norwegian craftsman and architect Hans Brattrud leads the furniture listings. Brattrud is renowned for this award-winning Scandia design, which blends laminated wood on a pliable wire frame. The design enabled convenient storage by allowing stacking of multiple chairs.
