Landscape & Seascape Paintings by American Artists Come to Sale with Toomey & Co.Apr 19, 2023 11:00 CDT
Artist David Mann is famous for painting Native American subjects in scenes of everyday life. His depictions are particularly noteworthy for their attire and background. He portrayed the Indigenous peoples of the Great Plains in the 19th century, before they were moved to reservations. One such untitled work by Mann is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Toomey & Co. It depicts a Native person on horseback, guiding his herd. Mann’s paintings often emphasized the role of horses in the lives of Native Americans. Another noteworthy lot in the sale is a painting by Robert Kipniss, titled Landscape. The composition portrays trees and a row of houses in a field, evoking a feeling of solitude. It also exemplifies the American painter’s use of a subtle color palette, mostly comprising black and white hues.
The Shoreline by Wesley Willis also leads the catalog. The artist used colorful marker pens to illustrate an urban scene with intricate detailing. The musician and visual artist from Chicago suffered from schizophrenia yet immersed himself in his art. Equally striking is Abraham Jacob Bogdanove’s Norton’s Ledge (Monhegan Island, ME). He is celebrated for his seascape paintings of Monhegan Island. Visit Toomey & Co. to view the complete catalog and register to bid in the upcoming Fine Art sale.
