Mechanical Period Artwork by Fernand Léger Highlights Upcoming King Art & Antiques EventJan 26, 2022 17:00 EST - Feb 27, 2022 11:00 EST
Fernand Léger was a painter and sculptor famous for his self-derived form of Cubism known as Tubism. During his World War I army service, Léger began sketching airplanes, soldiers, and artillery. These experiences inspired his mechanical period artworks, making him well-known as a machine-age artist. The upcoming King Art & Antiques auction presents Element Mecanique by Fernand Léger. The graphite and watercolor on paper depicts his signature tubular and sleek mechanical elements.
Another highlight is an oil painting titled La Fenetra de l’atelier La Californie by Pablo Picasso. The crayon drawing with a balanced composition and impressive geometry features the window of Picasso’s studio in Cannes. The green palm trees and ample sunlight visible through the window portray a peaceful summer scene. Also showcased is Keith Haring’s jigsaw puzzle-inspired Labyrinth Mickey artwork. Haring was notable for his combination of Pop Art and graffiti artworks. The artist’s complex paintings used visual imagery to explore life in America. The auction also offers a Georgian Towle sterling silver flatware set, Savonnerie carpet, African stone sculptures, and fine silver jewelry. Interested collectors can explore the entire catalog and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
