Freeman’s to Offer François-Xavier Lalanne Sculptures and Chaïm Soutine Painting in Upcoming SaleNov 17, 2021 11:00 EST
Born in France, François-Xavier Lalanne (1927 – 2008) studied drawing, painting, and sculpture at the Académie Julian. The sculptor and installation artist famously created whimsical furniture pieces that resemble animals. In 1965, Lalanne made a striking artistic statement by designing 24 furniture items with sheepskin and bronze. Lalanne fashioned them in the living room of a Paris apartment he shared with his wife and art partner Claude Lalanne. Moutons de Pierre, Lalanne’s faux sheep sculptures, are among the key highlights of this upcoming Freeman’s auction. A pair of Moutons de Pierre designed with epoxy stone and patinated bronze leads the listings.
Chaïm Soutine’s Le Viaduc Rouge Près de Vence (circa 1919) may be of interest to fine art collectors. The oil on canvas exemplifies Soutine’s signature style. His paintings explore colors, textures, and shapes rather than figural representation. Another significant painting on offer is Jules Pascin’s Les Nus Allongés (1927). The oil over pencil on canvas depicts nude images of two women resting casually. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
