The early American Modernist painter John Marin specialized in watercolor, developing a distinctive fusion of realism and abstraction in his bold, fluid style. A pioneer in the exploration of abstract techniques in American art, his compositions were always based on natural forms and rhythms. His exhibition at the Venice Biennale was the first in history to feature an American artist. One of his pieces, titled Manner of Seascape, is up for sale in this Holiday Season Select Artworks from Private Collections sale, hosted by 500 Gallery. The 1941 artwork is a representation of Marin’s work in oil on canvas paintings. The auction also features a 1923 work by Edgar Degas. A French Impressionist artist, Degas is acknowledged as one of the most significant contributors to Impressionism with his expressive paintings of modern Paris. Titled Après le Bain LXX, the offered item is a rare gravure print that is unsigned and unframed.
Another highlight of the auction is a Surreal landscape painting by Yves Tanguy. In many ways, Tanguy’s art embodied the Surrealist movement. An American-French painter, Tanguy created hyper-realistic paintings with incredible precision. The surreal quality of his scenes is achieved through a combination of scale and perspective, as well as keen observations of nature.
