Bernard Buffet’s paintings predominantly incorporate figurative and graphic compositions. In an attempt to address the importance of representational art, Buffet rejected the concept of abstract style which was dominating the art market at that time. His works revolved around the themes of death, pop culture, sexuality, and politics. A portrait of a woman by Buffet is available in the Property From the Estate of Robert Evans Online Only Auction, presented by Julien’s Auctions. The sketch was executed in 1949. According to the lot essay, this drawing appears in the living room of Woodland in the film The Kid Stays in the Picture.
The upcoming auction also includes work by notable 19th-century photographers like Helmut Newton. The fashion photographer from Berlin collaborated with renowned publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Playboy, and Elle. Newton was mostly active between the 1950s and 1960s. His works can be characterized by the theme of sexuality. One offered image shows two women dancing intimately in front of a fountain.
