Giovanni Battista Torriglia Painting and Henri Matisse Lithograph Highlight Clarke Auction Gallery SaleFeb 07, 2021 10:00 EST
An Italian painter who studied in Florence and settled in Tuscany, Giovanni Battista Torriglia was best known for painting the country life of peasants. This theme was popular across Europe in the 19th century. Giovanni Battista Torriglia’s oil on canvas titled Lullaby from a New York City collection is a key highlight of the upcoming Valentine’s Estate Auction, presented by Clarke Auction Gallery. It depicts a peasant family with strong visual details, lively colors, and a striking narrative character. Another available oil painting with a strong color scheme is B. Prabha’s Three Musicians. An Indian artist who was inspired by celebrated modernist Amrita Shergil, B. Prabha began painting when there were very few women artists in the Indian art scene. Three Musicians demonstrates Prabha’s signature elongated figures of rural women. The auction also showcases a striking lithograph by Henri Matisse titled Repos sur la banquette (1929).
One of the notable jewelry lots in the sale is a platinum bracelet inlaid with brilliant-cut, pear-cut, marquise, and straight baguette diamonds. The total gemstone weight is approximately 26.5 carats. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
