The upcoming two-day Decorative Arts and Fine Art auction presented by Bunte Auction Services, Inc. features paintings and etchings by Wallace Nutting, Ada Walter Shulz, Hiroshi Yoshida, John James Audubon, Frank Benson, and others. Hiroshi Yoshida, one of the best-known artists of the shin hanga style, had a great affinity for nature. He revived traditional Japanese woodblock printing, also known as ukiyo-e. Yoshida’s ukiyo-e prints incorporate red, blue, purple, and sakura-pink pigments. A colored woodblock print titled Spring in a Hot Spring by Yoshida is a key highlight of the auction.
An oil painting by Ada Walter Shulz is another lot of interest in this sale. Children dominate Shulz’s art, usually painted in the Impressionist style of capturing the moment. The present lot, titled Girl with Cat, shows a young girl on the grass holding a cat in yellow, green, and brown colors. The auction will also present sculptures by Sheila Oettinger, Chinese vases, Hummel figurines, and blankets. The sculpture by Oettinger was inspired by the artist’s interest in the female human form. Her Superiority sculpture depicts a woman in a sitting posture with her hands on either leg and her neck slightly tilted.
