Paul Starrett Sample was a leading American painter in the early 1940s. He mostly painted the struggling life of people during the Great Depression — a subject that would recur throughout his early oeuvre. Sample’s works were closely associated with Social Realism, though he drifted to Regionalism later in his career. The upcoming event, presented by Oakridge Auction Gallery, features an oil painting by Sample. Titled Grey Boats, the work shows grey boats lined up in the San Pedro, California harbor.
Also among the leading lots is a figurative sculpture from Diana K. Moore. A contemporary American artist, Moore is best known for her depictions of justice. “By creating work which is almost jewel like in conception and execution, I hope to draw the viewer in to my way of seeing the world,” explains the artist. Executed in 1999, the offered work depicts a woman in a striped, full-length dress. Beyond fine and decorative art, the auction also includes a collection of jewelry, furniture, and watches.
