Julian Stanczak was best known as a leader in the Perceptual Art movement who later helped popularize Op Art in the 20th century. Stanczak spent most of his life studying and seeking answers about color, light, and form, then manipulating their expression to affect the human eye. Using lines and color schemes, he created sophisticated optical effects. An example of his work will be featured in the upcoming Fine Art, Furniture, and Decorative Art Auction, presented by Gray’s Auctioneers.
Other lots of interest include a lithograph by Max Ernst, a German painter who frequently incorporated Surrealism in his work. He was a leading figure of the Automatism movement. This painting, titled Sign for a School of Pirates, shows two otherworldly beings against a blue background. Works from Francesco Ballesio are also offered, including a painting of a red-clothed cardinal sitting in a parlor. Behind the cardinal is a woman playing piano along with a young girl on her violin.
