Expressionist and Tonalist Paintings by American Artists Highlight Case Antiques’ Upcoming SaleJul 10, 2022 13:00 EDT
American artist LeRoy Neiman was an Expressionist painter famous for his intensely colored works. He contributed dynamic illustrations to magazines and painted murals for Playboy clubs. Neiman was best known for his depiction of sporting events and social gatherings. Dinner Party, an abstract oil on board painting by the artist, is a key highlight of the upcoming Summer Fine Art and Antique auction at Case Antiques. The large painting portrays women and men dressed in formalwear at a gathering. A banquet table is laid with glasses and wine bottles and the setting is lit by a chandelier. A Tonalist watercolor painting by another American artist, Alice Ravenel Huger Smith, also leads the listings. Smith’s The Silent Watchers depicts a low country landscape with white cranes in tree branches and marshy water replete with lily pads. Deeply inspired by her birthplace of Charleston, the self-taught artist was also influenced by Japanese ukiyo-e prints.
The sale offers an antique 14-karat yellow gold bangle bracelet with engravings and enamel foliate embellishment. It measures seven inches in circumference and weighs 31.03 grams. The inscription on the inner side reads “Clark, Annie Susie Maggie To Sister Anna.” To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare and browse other online auctions.
