A member of the Bay Area Figurative Movement, Joan Brown (1938 – 1991) was a painter who played a significant role in the local artistic community. Her painting style was characterized by the use of bold colors and symbolism with a personal touch. The upcoming Christie’s auction of post-war and contemporary art will feature Brown’s David with Statue of Mary Julia #2. The pastel, acrylic, and fabric collage on paper piece was executed in 1976. Mary Heilmann, another California-based artist who experimented with techniques, styles, and mediums, is represented in this event. Chrysanthemum Fan, a painting on shaped plywood, is among the featured lots. Heilmann completed it in 1988.
Another key highlight of the sale is Eddie Martinez’s BH Stack #14, which is an oil and enamel on canvas piece mounted on a panel. Based in New York, the artist is known for his use of bright color schemes and abstract forms. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Christie’s.
