Highlighted in Rago’s upcoming Living Contemporary auction are two paintings by James Havard. An American painter and sculptor, Havard is a pioneer of the Abstract Illusionist movement that explored non-objective paintings that give the impression of three-dimensional space. He made his first forays into the Abstract Illusionist style in the 1970s. The following decade, he moved into figuration, creating works inspired by Art Brut masters such as Jean Dubuffet. Mixed media box constructions were another area of experimentation in his prolific 40-year career. The available works, titled Zuni and Zuni Heart Line, are three-dimensional abstract works, rendered in yellow, maroon, and blue.
Leading the furniture lots is a pair of Sahara lounge chairs by Pierre Chapo. Born in Paris to a family of craftsmen, Pierre Chapo hoped to become an artist. However, after apprenticing with a navy carpenter, Chapo discovered a growing interest in architecture. Chapo was greatly inspired by Bauhaus and French designers such as Le Corbusier. Created in 1965, the offered chairs are made from elm and stitched saddle leather. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
