Paintings by Charles Muench and John Anthony Conner Highlight Upcoming John Moran Auctioneers SaleOct 26, 2021 12:00 PDT
Landscape artist Charles Muench is best known for his detail-oriented and realistic painting style. Muench usually chooses to travel and paint outdoors rather than use digital photos as memory fillers. He compares the experience of on-location painting to having a conversation with nature. Charles Muench’s View To Pasadena (2014) is a key highlight of this upcoming John Moran Auctioneers event. The painting illustrates the artist’s sensitivity to his surroundings— the colors, shapes, and lighting of the cityscape and skyline.
Two paintings by John Anthony Conner (1897 – 1971) also lead the listings. Compelling colors and unrestrained brush strokes characterize the pieces. Fauvism of the early 20th century greatly influenced the artist. His subject matter included desert landscapes and the American Western genre. The auction catalog includes an 1890s German Vienna wall clock as well. The enameled metal dial bears a signature from Karl Suchy Sohne. The outer minute track centers a brass dore plaque. The clock is encased in glazed ebonized wood with carved floral motifs and urn finials. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit John Moran Auctioneers.
