In 1889, Alexej von Jawlensky abandoned his career in the Russian Imperial Guard to apprentice under Ilya Repin, a Russian painter. In 1896, he traveled to Munich, where he came across renowned artist Wassily Kandinsky. Kandinsky went on to influence many of von Jawlensky’s works. Today, he is remembered for his Expressionistic paintings and abstract portraits. Showplace’s forthcoming New York City Estate Sale will offer an Alexej von Jawlensky lithograph. The framed artwork uses clean lines to depict a woman’s frowning face.
The auction also presents a ceramic owl pitcher from Pablo Picasso. While known for his Cubist paintings, Picasso was also a prolific ceramicist. He began working with ceramics in the 1940s and designed around 600 ceramics throughout his career. Titled Hibou, the offered piece has a mark on the bottom that reads “Edition Picasso Madoura.” The pitcher’s spout represents the owl’s beak, and its round eyes appear on either side.
