When Jerome Myers permanently moved to New York from Virginia at the age of 19, he discovered ample inspiration for his Realist paintings. Myers later became one of the first New York Realists to paint the Eastern European and Italian immigrant neighborhoods of the Lower East Side. Myers observed his subject with a different perspective: “Others saw ugliness and degradation there… I saw poetry and beauty.” In mid-April, Rago will present over 200 lots in the Object & Home Day 1 Auction, including an untitled painting by Myers.
Also available in the sale is a coffee table designed by Jeffrey Greene. Executed in 2019, the enameled wood table features a single slab burl top with a continuous natural edge. Another offered lot is a painting by 20th-century watercolorist, Paul Jenkins. In this piece, he allowed his colors to flow freely rather than using a paintbrush.
