Mary Bauermeister Tower and Keith Haring Lithographs Among Top Lots in Rago’s Post War + Contemporary Art AuctionMar 10, 2022 11:00 EST
“Art, in its complexity, approaches truth,” states Mary Bauermeister (b. 1934), one of the most influential and accomplished artists of the 21st century. Alu Tower 3 by Bauermeister is soon coming to auction at Rago. Bauermeister is a multidisciplinary artist, musician, and performer. She was born and raised in Germany where she began her career with charcoal and pencil drawings. She studied art under Helene Nonné-Schmidt and Max Bill, later dabbling in photography. A 1971 ink, glass, glass lens, stone, painted wood, resin, and aluminum construction by Bauermeister will be available in the Post War + Contemporary Art Auction this March.
Free South Africa (1985) by Keith Haring is a notable lot among lithographs. It is a set of three color lithographs from the edition of 60 published by Edition Schellmann. Haring (1958 – 1990) was an artist who believed in the ideology of accessibility in society. He used striking imagery on political and social campaigns to create awareness of various issues. Haring’s mural on the western side of the Berlin Wall is one of his most notable public works. Rago’s curated event features painting, sculpture, drawing, and photography by some of the most important and influential artists of the second half of the 20th century: Helen Frankenthaler, Sam Gilliam, Jenny Holzer, Kehinde Wiley, and Olga de Amaral, among others.
