“When I held a lithographic stone or a copperplate in my hand I thought I was touching a talisman,” Marc Chagall once expressed. An early Modernist artist, Chagall worked in mediums ranging from prints and lithographs to paintings and drawings. Chagall started making lithographs in 1922 to create dreamy scenes with spiritual figures. He was later introduced to color lithography in 1950 by Charles Sorlier, the master lithograph painter. Over the years, Chagall continued to promote lithography with innovative techniques. The upcoming Akiba Antiques auction highlights a lithograph from Chagall titled Four Seasons. Number 39 of 100 limited edition color lithographs, this piece depicts native village scenes of Russia.
The auction also showcases paintings and sculptures from the Falling Man series by Ernest Trova. Featured is a portfolio of ten silkscreens, titled Falling Man Manscapes, by Trova. Through his signature character, the artist explored man’s imperfect nature. The sale also presents etchings by Pablo Picasso, lithographs by Roy Lichtenstein, Lalique glassware, Ralph Lauren furniture, Chinese jade articles, and silverware. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
