    Philip Taaffe Abstract Art and Harrington Mann Portrait Highlight Winter Southern Estates Sale

    Contemporary American artist Philip Taaffe is best known for his visually stimulating works. His art is a synthesis of cultural motifs, abstract patterns, and process-based techniques. From Islamic mosques to Japanese perforated screens, Taaffe borrows richly from his extensive world travels. His works have been displayed at solo exhibitions, including art galleries in Dublin, Paris, and Brooklyn. Taaffe’s oil on paper mounted to canvas, Anthology III, is a key lot of the upcoming Winter Southern Estates sale at Everard Auctions and Appraisals. Dated 1991-92, the painting highlights dense patterns in shades of green, purple, and pink on a pale yellow background. It is also noteworthy for its iconographic abstraction. A portrait by Scottish artist Harrington Mann depicting his niece, Erminie Pamela Sharpe, also leads the listings. The oil on canvas depicts the young girl dressed in a blue dress and yellow tights with a hula hoop in her hands. A member of the influential Glasgow Boys movement in the 1880s, Harrington shared a collective passion for naturalism and realism. Glasgow School artists painted real people in real settings using techniques considered innovative for the time.  French glassmaker Lalique’s glass and chrome Chene chandelier (1955) is a striking decorative lot. With 12 glass leaf inserts above a domed base and three interior lights, the chandelier is designed with a frosted glass ceiling mount. Fabric covers the metal cable. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.

    Everard’s Feb. 23-24 auction offers superlative fine and decorative art, jewelry and furnishings from distinguished Southern estates

    Featured: William Kentridge bronze, Philip Taaffe abstract painting, Chagall etchings, Halsman print of iconic Einstein portrait, deaccessioned art from Savannah museum SAVANNAH, Ga. – A growing interest in items that are unique or finely crafted has the auction market off to a robust start in 2022. Everard Auctions & Appraisals’ February 23-24 Winter Southern Estates Auction is ready to meet the demand with more than 650 lots of fine and decorative art from select sources in Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and beyond. Absentee bidding is now in progress, with Internet live bidding slated to begin at 10 a.m. ET on both days of the auction series. Signed bronze is by South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955-). When rotated, the work changes from an abstract expressionist shape to the form of a nose. Estimate $30,000-$50,000 4 – Anthology III The auction features a wide range of modern and contemporary art, including an important bronze by William Kentridge (NY, South Africa, b. 1955-) titled Sculpture for Return (Commendatore Naso). It is initial-signed WK and numbered 11/12 on the side of the base. When rotated, the sculpture changes to form a nose, hence the “Commander Nose” referenced in the title. “For Kentridge, the process of recording history is constructed from reconfigured fragments to arrive at a provisional understanding of the past—this act of recording, dismembering and reordering crosses over into an essential activity of the studio,” says a commentary from the Marian Goodman Gallery, which notes his interest in “fragmentation and reconnection, the fragility of coherence.” The sculpture comes from a Sea Island, Georgia, estate and is estimated at $30,000-$50,000.  Philip Taaffe’s (b. 1955-) Anthology III, a 28-by-40-inch oil on paper mounted to canvas, is dated 1991-1992 and has an estimate of $10,000-$15,000. “Philip Taaffe is one of the most exciting contemporary artists of his peer group. He is widely known for his large-scale abstracts, and his work is held in a number of public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney,” said Amanda Everard, president of Everard Auctions. Marc Chagall (Belorussian/French, 1887-1985) is one of the 20th century’s most…
