In the upcoming 20th Century, Modern, & Contemporary Fine Art auction, pieces from Charles Demuth, Marcel Duchamp, Gene Davis, and Andy Warhol will be featured. Demuth was an American painter from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He primarily worked with watercolors, then turned to oils later in his career. He developed a style of painting called Precisionism, which is considered among the first Modern art movements in the United States. In this Stair auction is Demuth’s Song and Dance watercolor and pencil on paper. The 1918 piece shows a man and a woman dancing and is signed and dated in one corner.
Included in the auction is a screenprint from Marcel Duchamp. This piece of work is a 1968 version of his 1936 Coeurs Volants, which became the cover of a poem collection by Emmett Williams. This screenprint is an example of the artist’s last graphic work. Also found are three screenprints by Gene Davis, photographs from Andy Warhol, and a collection of art books from the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
