Best known for his comical paintings, American artist Donald Roller Wilson extended the artistic boundaries of Realism. The upcoming 20 | 21 Art auction, offered by Rago, features an oil painting by Wilson. The piece, titled Holstein Black Swan: The Devil Made Me Wear This, exhibits the influence of both the Surrealists and the Old Masters on Wilson’s work. This piece depicts a chimpanzee dressed in a green velvet dress. Surrounding the central figure are slices of watermelon.
An untitled mixed media photograph by Raphael Mazzucco is presented in this auction as well. Mazzucco frequently depicts the human form against a backdrop of detailed landscapes. The available photograph is composed of layered paint, photography, and hand-lettered text. Another key lot is from Larry Rivers, who was an influential figure of the post-war American art world. Through his work, he was known to combine the iconography of pop culture into his Abstract and figurative paintings. This piece depicts an artist gesturing towards a Cubist work.
