Important Estate Sale at Clarke Auctioneers Features Alexander Calder TapestryApr 03, 2022 10:00 EDT
American artist Alexander Calder was known for his kinetic sculptures. He was also recognized for his Modernist paintings. Calder frequently translated the vibrant visual characteristics of his sculptures onto his paintings. Tapestry, a handcrafted maguey fiber piece by Alexander Calder, is a prominent highlight of Clarke Auctioneers’ forthcoming Important Estate Auction. It reflects the artist’s trademark style of depicting the geometric subjects in primary colors.
Another lot of interest is Perle Fine’s acrylic on gold piece. Fine began her artistic studies at the Boston Practical School of Art, where she learned illustration and graphic design. To hone her skills, Fine spent hours studying under Kimon Nicolaides. During this time, she became familiar with the concept of three-dimensional painting. Her artistic career spanned over 50 years. Also available is Levi Wells Prentice’s landscape painting. It depicts a lake surrounded by pine trees. To view the complete catalog and browse other online auctions, visit Bidsquare.
