Painter Giorgio Morandi was known for his still-life paintings of simple objects in muted colors. Morandi’s paintings were influenced by the works of Giorgio de Chirico and often feature medieval Italian architecture. The upcoming Impressionist & Modern Art Day Sale, presented by Sotheby’s, highlights an oil painting titled Natura Morta by Morandi. It shows a small assortment of dusty jars and a vase, painted in a flat matte palette to avoid reflections and letterings.
The sale also showcases works by Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Maria Au Repos (Gabrielle Assise), a 1905 oil on canvas work by Renoir, likely captures the artist’s housemaid and governess. Renoir’s Impressionist style shows his subjects in their candid element and expresses them in a saturated color scheme. Also offered is an artwork titled Le Déjeuner by the French painter Fernand Léger. This 1921 watercolor, brush, ink, and pencil on paper piece depicts female figures clutching objects that resemble tables. The fragmented frame surrounding the figures also reflects Léger’s early mechanical style. Sculptures by blue-chip artists such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró are highlighted as well. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Sotheby’s.
