Associated Estate & Appraisal Offers David James’ Oil Painting of a Roiling SeaFeb 19, 2022 10:00 EST
Born in 1853, David James was an influential but little-known Marine painter. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1886. James was fond of painting the sea from the shore. Much like Henry Moore, the artist studied the sea waves instead of topographical coastal views. A key painting by David James will cross the auction block in the forthcoming sale from Associated Estate & Appraisal. The oil on canvas work is a seascape with gulls in the frame.
Demetre Chiparus’ work is also represented in this February auction. He was born in Dorohoi, Romania. The renowned sculptor used the Art Deco style in many of his works. Using a technique known as chryselephantine, Chiparus’ sculptures frequently depicted women dancers in ancient Egyptian attire. Chiparus took inspiration from Serge Diaghilev’s sculptures of Russian ballet dancers. The offered lot depicts a couple dancing to the music of matching cymbals.
