Full of hatch marks, strong lines, and scribbles, the paintings of the French-German Modernist Hans Hartung were a source of controversy during the mid-20th century. Hartung would eventually be imprisoned by the Gestapo in part because of his defiant style, which he consistently defended: “The first and most important thing is to remain free, free in each line you undertake, in your ideas and in your political action, in your moral conduct.” One of his later works, created in 1960, will be available in the upcoming Fine Modern Art auction presented by Doyle. This sale will also include fine art from modern and contemporary artists such as Man Ray, Grisha Bruskin, and Saul Steinberg.
A lithograph from Man Ray is featured here, titled Les Amoreux (A L’Heure de L’Observatoire). This 1970 print shows a pair of Surrealist lips hovering above a darkened landscape. Various sculptures will also be on offer in this sale, including a white marble and abstract piece from Carla Lavatelli. Browse the full catalog and register to bid on Invaluable.
