Abstract Watercolor Painting by Dong Kingman Showcased in Upcoming Leonard Auction EventOct 17, 2021 11:00 EDT
California Style School artist Dong Kingman was among the seminal watercolor painters of America. He was famous for his cityscapes depicting the urban lifestyle in San Francisco and New York City. The upcoming Leonard Auction event presents Guanajuato, Mexico, a watercolor landscape by Dong Kingman. The available painting portrays a scene at Plaza de la Paz as people and cattle linger around the Our Lady of Guanajuato statue. It is a prominent example of the artist’s post-war artworks with an abstract geometric style and complex themes. Fine art collectors will also find a still life by Henry Faulkner portraying a bunch of roses in a vase against a pink background. The oil on Masonite piece depicts Faulkner’s colorist and Surrealist style.
Also showcased is an Ecrou de Cartier bracelet inspired by Cartier’s iconic jewelry designer Aldo Cipullo. The 18-karat yellow gold bracelet reflects a mix of industrial design innovations. Another auction highlight is a Gorham sterling silver Melrose flatware assortment. The company defined this 1948 Rococo Revival pattern flatware series as a symbol of the “American way of living.” The scallop-design flatware features a combination of classic scroll leaves and floral patterns. Additional lots include a Persian Hamadan wool rug, a Waterford Crystal assortment, and Rado timepieces. Interested collectors can explore the entire catalog and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
