Roberto Sebastian Matta was an Abstract Expressionist best known for his oil paintings. Matta’s art evolved from sketch drawings to his oil work, including his Inscape series. The upcoming auction presented by Wright will feature a graphite and crayon piece titled Pilar de l’Atlas by Matta. The mechanical lines and graphic effects in his works reflect the influence of contemporary European artist Marcel Duchamp. Also showcased in the auction is an example of Tim Mackaness’ animal- and bird-inspired furniture. His designs often include whimsical characteristics such as chicken and frog legs or the talons of a bird. Included in this auction is a black walnut bookshelf balancing on a tree frog’s leg.
Available in this sale is a sculpted rocking chair by Vladimir Kagan. The 20th-century designer’s clients included both Marilyn Monroe and Andy Warhol. A master cabinetmaker, his furniture softens traditionally Modernist designs. Also offered are contemporary flatweave and pile carpets, light fixtures by Mark Brazier-Jones and Tom Dixon, and sculptures. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Wright.
