The Bass Museum in Miami Beach spotlights international contemporary art from mid-career and established artists. Over 250 works from the museum are up for bid in the auction of Contemporary Art – Archives from the Bass Museum auction, presented by Lion and Unicorn. A portion of the auction proceeds will benefit the museum’s John and Johanna Bass Acquisitions Fund. Among the featured paintings in the auction is one by Sam Newton, a member of the popular Florida Highwaymen group. The work shows a Florida wetland landscape and was executed using only a palette knife.
There are several architecturally related items in the sale, including a sketch by contemporary architect Frank Gehry. The sketch is a study of a “New Gehry House” and was created as a special proof edition of ten. The print is signed by Gehry. Other lots in the sale include items by Andy Warhol: a set of nine Marilyn Monroe prints and an individual print of Elizabeth Taylor, based on a closely-cropped promotional photograph for the film Butterfield 8. Other artists in the sale include Raul Anguiano, Chrissy Dolan Terrasi, Alfred Ortega, Frank Gallo, and more. View any of these lots and register to bid on Lion and Unicorn.
