Fernando Botero is a celebrated South American artist famous for his figurative artworks. His chubby sculptures with inflated sizes are popularly called ‘Boterismo.’ They often serve as mediums for comedy or criticism. Diego Rivera’s political murals and Baroque architecture highly influence Botero’s works. The upcoming 1stbid auction presents a Boterismo sculpture by Fernando Botero. Fat English Gentleman Banker depicts an oversized figure that exploits viewpoint and space. Its subject dives deeper into satire and sensuality. A Hudson Valley landscape by William Louis Sonntag is another highlight. The self-taught artist was notable for achieving photo-like attributes. His signature works often explored earth, water, and sky. Sonntag articulated his faith in nature through grand panoramas and intricate brushwork.
The auction showcases an extensive collection of rugs, including a semi–pictorial Persian Mohtasham Kashan rug. The carpet gets its name after Hadji Mollah Mohammed Hassan Mohtasham, a 19th-century master weaver who invented its weaving pattern. The available rug utilizes spun wool and depicts birds and flower arrangements in red and blue. Also offered is a Chinese acrylic painting by Yan Ping expressing ideas through colors, as well as Andy Warhol prints, Chinese porcelain, and metal toys. Interested collectors can explore the entire listings, register to bid online on Bidsquare, and browse other online auctions.
