Artworks by Gertrude Abercrombie and Clarence Morgan Highlight Hindman’s Upcoming SaleFeb 17, 2022 10:00 EST
American painter Gertrude Abercrombie was known as “the queen of the bohemian artists.” The imagery in her paintings had an enigmatic connection to her dreams. Abercrombie once dreamed of an ostrich egg, and it mysteriously appeared when someone gave it to her in reality. The egg became a distinctive personal reference in three of her most significant paintings. One of them, The Dinosaur, is a key highlight of this upcoming Hindman auction. The oil on panel image of a barren landscape with a tiny dinosaur and a large ostrich egg characterizes Abercrombie’s surrealistic style. This work shows a three-dimensional composition with a small black cloud above the dinosaur and a large white one over the egg.
Another noteworthy artwork is an ink and acrylic on panel by visual artist Clarence Morgan. The Crucible, Offline Composite, The Elegant Science, and Harvest Turn illustrates his focus on biomorphic forms. Morgan created intricate patterns of abstract shapes having their own visual tempo. Yannis Gaïtis’ My Side-Your Side also leads the listings. The oil on wood and canvas depicts repeating images of men identically dressed in plaid jackets and hats. The Greek artist celebrated this modern representation of men throughout his body of work. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Hindman.
