Leading the upcoming Freedom Sale of Modern & Contemporary Art at Dane Fine Art is an original silkscreen version of Andy Warhol’s Howdy Doody. It comes from a rare, limited edition of 200. The piece belongs to Warhol’s 1981 Myths series, which profiled fictional characters and personas that Warhol associated with American culture. Howdy Doody was one of the first children’s television programs in color and featured the titular freckle-faced marionette. In Warhol’s version, the character is shown with a wide smile and electric blue eyes. Another notable work in the catalog is a black-and-white lithograph of Robert Longo’s Jules from 1982-83. The image belongs to Longo’s Men in the Cities series of formally-dressed men and women standing in contorted poses. The offered lithograph comes from a limited edition of 45.
With over 1,000 lots available in the catalog, this event presents a wide range of posters, prints, and multiples by 20th-century and contemporary artists. Among the featured lots is French Village 1, a 2021 inkjet on photo rag print by Julian Opie. Based on a 2020 video project by Opie, the work shows the winding streets of a small French village, reimagined via continuous computer animation. Also available is an ink and watercolor on paper piece by Robert Matta, a three-dimensional media sculpture by Red Grooms, and an acrylic and collage on canvas painting by James Havard.
