John Constable was an English landscape artist whose style emulated the Romantic tradition. He was the first English artist to paint out in the open instead of working indoors. He also pioneered a technique to paint foliage in intense green hues. In the formative years of his journey, Constable painted in a happy mood, which reflected in his vibrant strokes. However, in the later years, the same motifs were executed with drooping brushwork, manifesting his dejection. Blackberry Paysage, attributed to John Constable, is a key highlight of the upcoming 500 Gallery sale. The painting is an oil on paper mounted to board. Another noteworthy oil painting on panel, titled Two Faces, is attributed to Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. The German Expressionist painter and printmaker was one of the founders of the Die Brücke artist group.
Also of note is an oil on canvas painting attributed to Chile-based Abstract Expressionist Roberto Sebastián Antonio Matta Echaurren. Also known as Roberto Matta, the artist was an influential figure of the 20th century. The available painting exemplifies his Surrealist style.
