As Troy Brauntuch worked with a group of artists called the Pictures Generation in the late 19th century, he was introduced to mass media. For several years, he studied the art form, which eventually defined his style. Describing his abstract and figurative works, Dominique Von Burg writes, “Brauntuch’s compositions challenge perception and call for great concentration.” One of his pastel on paper pieces will be highlighted in Leonard Auction’s upcoming online sale. The 1985 piece is an abstract composition in shades of teal and gray against a black backdrop.
Another mass media work is from Ndidi Emefiele. A renowned artist, Emefiele creates works that drew on cultural, gendered, and personal references. Her works portray women as strong, vibrant, and self-confident. The available piece shows a brown leather couch with fabric pillows and glasses on the seat. Also offered is a Baroque sterling silver flatware service from Wallace Silver. Wallace is recognized as the first American metalsmith to make spoons out of German silver. The offered set includes dinner knives, forks, teaspoons, and a gravy ladle among the 83 pieces. Explore the full catalog for this auction and register to bid on Bidsquare.
