Clarke Auction Offers Petion Savain’s Canvas Work and Joseph Margulies’ Oil PaintingJun 13, 2023 12:00 EDT
Haitian artist and writer Petion Savain (1906 – 1973) was best known for his use of vibrant colors, particularly pinks, and purples. Born in Port-au-Prince, Savain earned his degree in law from the Haitian School of Agronomy. He began his painting career in 1927. Petion Savain’s artwork Portrait of Village Women from a New Rochelle, New York City collection is a key highlight of the upcoming Clarke Auction event. It depicts two Haitian women in a village setting. The canvas is characterized by lively colors and a striking narrative character.
A seascape painting titled Collecting the Tuna is another lot of interest. It was made by Austrian-born painter and etcher Joseph Margulies (1896 – 1984). The artist who studied at the Art Students League of New York was renowned for his portrait prints, scenes of New York and New England cities. The artist has signed the available lot along the lower margin, on the right side. The catalog also highlights works by artists such as Victor Casanelli, Max Heichele, Geo Dangman, and others.
