Eduardo Chillida was a Spanish installation artist of the 20th century whose work explored the relationship between viewers and physical space. He personally described his work as “a rebellion against gravity.” One of his burlap-bound portfolios will be presented on the second day of the Millea Brothers’ “Select” auction. The portfolio includes five etchings and aquatints of his designs and ideas, each individually signed and numbered. Two of Marc Klionsky’s contemporary oil paintings will also be available in this sale: one shows a young woman sitting on some steps with her lunch, while the other shows ballet dancers stretching.
This auction particularly highlights African, Oceanic, and Native American artwork and artifacts. From the Niger River area of Guinea comes a traditional shrine headdress made of carved wood. This angled mask has the shape of a human head with a long beak and rests on an included pedestal. Several dance staffs from the Yoruba Egba people of Nigeria will be on offer as well. Sculptures, figurines, and weavings represent cultures around the world in this auction. Browse the complete catalog and register to bid on Bidsquare.
