500 Gallery’s 19th & 20th Century Art Sale Features Work by Gyorgy Korga, Karen Moss, and MoreSep 06, 2023 17:30 EDT
The latest Legacy Gallery – 19th & 20th Century Art sale from 500 Gallery will showcase fine art across all genres. Leading this auction is a still-life painting by Hungarian artist Gyorgy Korga. Noted for his paintings of still lifes, Gyorgy Korga was among a group of Eastern European painters who challenged abstract art with the use of ultra-realism and detail in the mid-to-late 20th century. The artist created an effect of Surrealism with his paintings, despite their extreme detail and clarity. The available work is an oil painting with Asian imagery on canvas. Presented in a frame with a gallery label on the reverse, the work is signed lower right.
Another top lot in this sale is Karen Moss’ Doll with Horse, a painting on heavy cold-pressed paper in watercolor. In the artist’s work, ideas drive the composition, not specific styles. The materials selected for each project or exhibition are determined by the concept. Moss draws inspiration from a wide variety of sources, including travel, flea market finds, history, social issues, natural sciences, and exploration. Bidders can also consider a colored lithograph after Abraham Rattner’s Autumn. As a brilliant colorist and Modernist painter, the artist depicted nature in vibrant, bold colors. Color palettes of red and yellow characterize the semi-abstract work.
