Painting by Francisco de Zurbarán Leads Shapiro Auctions Upcoming Fine Art SaleNov 07, 2020 10:00 EST
One of the most influential painters of the Spanish Baroque period, Francisco de Zurbarán was known for his still lifes and religious motifs. His stylistic development was mainly influenced by naturalism, which incorporated Caravaggio’s approach to painting. An example of his work from circa 1638-1640 will be available at the forthcoming Important Fine Art event, presented by Shapiro Auctions. This piece, titled Veil of Veronica, depicts the face of Jesus.
Alongside Zurbarán’s oil painting are works from celebrated artists such as Oleg Tselkov, Konstantin Gorbatov, Alexander Samokhvalov, and Lê Phổ. Tselkov’s Woman with Cat and Butterfly from 1988 is among the top lots. For several years, Tselkov examined the instinct of humans, separate from any emotions or logic. The study helped Tselkov find his style in the 1960s when he began painting images of human faces with unusual features. View more of these lots and register to bid at Bidsquare.
