Geometric Abstraction Artworks Attributed to Theo van Doesburg and Sonia Delaunay Highlight 500 Gallery’s Upcoming SaleMay 24, 2023 17:30 EDT
Christian Emil Marie Küpper, also known as Theo van Doesburg, was the frontrunner of the De Stijl movement. Although his style was Post-Impressionist and Fauvist until 1915, he took to geometric abstraction later, inspired by the works of Piet Mondrian. Contra-composition IV, an oil on wood painting attributed to Theo van Doesburg, is a key highlight of the upcoming 500 Gallery sale. It is characterized by horizontal and vertical shapes and primary colors, very similar to Mondrian’s works. Another noteworthy abstract work is an untitled painting attributed to Mark Rothko. The Latvian-American abstract painter is celebrated for his color field paintings portraying irregular rectangular patches of colors. Sonia Delaunay’s (attributed) Composition also leads the catalog. The gouache and graphite on paper is signed and dated 1968. The Ukrainian-French artist is noted for her use of a strong color palette.
The sale also features Alligator Pears, an oil on sack cloth artwork attributed to Georgia O’Keeffe. It is one of her still lifes from the 1920s that explored fruits and vegetables cultivated at Lake George.
