Bernar Venet, a French conceptual artist, made his first trip to New York from France in 1966 to view the collection of Jean and Howard Lipman. At the exhibition of Minimalist artwork, Venet became aware of the logical characteristics of art, which inspired him to create his first abstract sculpture. Eventually, Venet grew to become a leading sculptor known for his abstract pieces, many of which invoke mathematical concepts and scientific theories. His aesthetic yet simple designs placed him at the forefront of the Conceptual Art Movement. Capsule Auctions will present an example of Venet’s work in the upcoming Art and Design Auction.
Among the featured lots is a watercolor painting by Paul Jenkins, who rose to prominence following World War II. Jenkins chose to avoid the paintbrush and instead allowed pigment to flow freely across the surface of his canvases. Also highlighted is an acrylic painting in primary colors by Edvins Strautmanis. Interested bidders can explore a range of antiques, collectibles, furniture, and decorative arts as well. Browse the entire catalog and register to bid online on Capsule Auctions.
