Carl Adolph Buchner was a South African artist best known for his Modernist style. His paintings were greatly influenced by his 1957-1958 tour of Europe. Through his use of vibrant colors, Buchner’s portraits of children, young men, flower sellers, and harlequins often convey abstraction. His works are in the collections of the Rembrandt Art Foundation, the South African National Gallery, and the Pretoria Art Museum. In the upcoming Paintings & Drawings Online Auction, presented by Doyle, one of Buchner’s paintings will be highlighted. It shows a musician playing a banjo against a green backdrop.
A piece titled Portrait of the Artist’s Father is another key lot. It was painted by Malcolm Drummond, who created several notable works within the British Impressionist movement. The recurring subjects in his paintings were mostly urban scenes, figures, and interiors. Also among the 87 lots in this auction is an oil on canvas piece by the 19th-century American artist Edwin Graves Champney. He was known particularly for his depiction of life in New Hampshire. The available 1875 painting shows a view of a town above a river. To view the full catalog for the upcoming sale, visit Doyle.
