French painter and printmaker Max Papart’s paintings and graphics were suffused with sunny humor and the bright colors of the French Riviera, where he was born. Working in the Cubist style, Papart depicted circus scenes, soaring birds, and similar cheerful subjects. As Papart said, his paintings “force the viewer to think, and it is for the viewer to respond to the art based on his own personal experiences.” The upcoming Summer VIP Collections auction, presented by Great Gatsby’s Auction Gallery, Inc., features a mixed media collage by Papart. Titled Blue, Red, and Five, the work depicts symbols, numbers, and a blackbird.
Also among the leading lots is a glass sculpture by Jay Musler. An American artist, Musler began creating in response to the alienation, violence, and crime that he found in modern cities. Taking inspiration from the urban environment, his constructions often include sharp lattices and cracked forms. Titled The Mask, the offered work resembles a small rectangular building with a peaked roof. Beyond fine and decorative art, the auction also includes a collection of handbags, furniture pieces, rugs, and more. Browse the full catalog and register to bid on Invaluable.
