Important Oil Paintings by John Constable and Tom Wesselmann Highlight 500 Gallery’s Upcoming SaleSep 27, 2023 17:30 EDT
English painter John Constable RA is celebrated for transforming the genre of landscape art. His illustrations of Dedham Vale, the area in the vicinity of his home, are considered very significant in this regard. He was also known to be the first English artist to paint in the open air, directly from nature, and also to portray foliage as truly green. Blackberry Paysage, one such oil work attributed to the artist, is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from 500 Gallery. There was a stark difference between the paintings of Constable’s earlier and advanced years. The initially joyous mood later changed into a sense of dejection following a personal loss. Another noteworthy painting in the sale is a still life in the manner of Georges Braque. The artist was the founder of Cubism and also practiced other forms of art. Akin to many of his other still-life compositions, this one portrays several objects gathered on a table.
Smoker in the manner of Tom Wesselmann also leads the catalog. It is part of a significant series by Wesselmann, depicting lips, mouths, hands, cigarettes, and smoke.
