Drawing of Queen Elizabeth II by Andy Warhol, Fine Art by Tully Filmus Highlights Upcoming New Years Eve AuctionDec 31, 2022 11:00 EST
The New Years Eve Auction, hosted by Nest Egg Auctions, features a drawing of the late Queen Elizabeth II by American Pop artist Andy Warhol. Warhol excelled in the Pop Art movement, which brought the symbols from popular culture into the realm of fine art. The piece belongs to 1985’s Reigning Queens Collection, which includes 16 serigraphs by Warhol. The artist created four portraits of Queen Elizabeth II for this series. Warhol converted the Queen’s 1966 postage stamp portrait by John Hedgecoe into his unique style, which depicts the monarch in profile. The Queen and her jewels are depicted in a simplistic manner by Warhol using strong red crayon lines on brown artist’s paper. Squiggles are used to provide the shading for the hair, giving the two-dimensional image additional depth.
The forthcoming auction will also feature Jewish Wedding by American Jewish painter Tully Filmus. This oil on canvas painting from the mid-20th century shows an Eastern European Jewish wedding ritual. In the painting, village ladies are dressed in vibrant dresses as they dance around the bride, who is seated in the middle and is covered. Additional lots of interest include Gorham sterling silver flatware and a Cartier Art Deco compact. Explore more items, online auctions, and bidding options on Bidsquare.
