Doyle’s October auction of Latin American, Post-War, & Contemporary Art surveys a variety of art movements and styles. Leading the listings is a painted wall construction from Louise Nevelson. The American sculptor and assemblage artist created evocative works that explored cityscapes, the celestial realm, and Cubism. Nevelson favored a monochromatic palette, relying almost exclusively on black and white spray paint to color her pieces. She believed that black signaled totality rather than nothingness. This sale offers Louise Nevelson’s Wall Zag construction. First exhibited at Pace Gallery in 1979, this all-black piece features numerous rectangular cubbies with wooden geometric details.
Another notable assemblage piece on offer from Doyle is Kwang-Young Chun’s Aggregation 06-AU044. A Korean artist, Chun creates complex sculptures using triangular forms wrapped in traditional mulberry paper. He uses various teas and light pigments to add color to his roiling, textured works. Tiny wrapped packages make up the available mixed media piece. Upon close inspection, printed text is visible on each triangular element. Collectors can also consider a tall bronze sculpture from Sorel Etrog, an oil painting from Chilean artist Roberto Matta, and a watercolor by Diego Rivera.
