Ammi Phillips was a notable name in the American itinerant art scene for his folk art portraits. His paintings were famous for the realistic portrayal of fabrics and light effects. Ammi Phillips’ artworks usually depict standard poses and costumes for his subjects. The upcoming event by Gray’s Auctioneers presents two portraits attributed to Ammi Phillips. Portraits Of A Gentleman And Lady in the style of Phillips features a bright color palette and intricate details.
Also showcased are a brown leather chair and ottoman by award-winning architect Mario Bellini. The B&B Italia-produced chair and ottoman belong to Bellini’s Le Bambole series. The 1972 Le Bambole collection has received the Compasso d’Oro award. The furniture is notable for its natural shape and cozy and elastic appearance. The 50-year-old design by Bellini employs a hidden metal frame under polyurethane cushioning. Another highlight is Rain Over Desert Mesas, New Mexico by Modernist painter Arnold Rönnebeck. Rönnebeck’s work depicts New York’s urban architecture and New Mexico landscapes. The available lithograph portrays his fascination with the Southwestern panorama.
