American Abstract Artist Byron Browne’s Works Lead Sarasota Estate Auction’s SaleJan 24, 2021 11:00 EST
George Byron Browne (1907 ‐ 1961) is acknowledged as one of the founders of American Abstract Artists. A prolific Picasso follower, Browne’s works take references from everyday life, nature, and art history. Trained at the National Academy of Design, Browne followed traditional lines and a bright palette. He believed that “every artist has to have tradition. Without tradition art is no good. Having a tradition enables you to tackle new problems with authority, with solid footing.” The second day of the upcoming Winter Fine Art & Antique Auction, offered by Sarasota Estate Auction, features an oil painting by Byron Browne. Titled The White Acrobats, the oil painting features women acrobats, rendered in Browne’s signature line and abstract form.
Another highlight is a Shona sculptural bust of a woman in serpentine stone by Joe Mutasa. Named after the largest tribe in Zimbabwe that engages in sculpting, Shona sculpture refers to the modern stone carving movement. Shona artists draw inspiration from women, mythology, folklore, and rituals. Also showcased are crystal and bronze chandeliers by Baccarat Crystal, the first French crystal manufacturer to make chandeliers. Baccarat Crystal chandeliers are known for their intricate and timeless designs. Interested collectors can browse the entire catalog and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
