Philip Taaffe Abstract Art and Harrington Mann Portrait Highlight Winter Southern Estates SaleFeb 24, 2022 10:00 EST
Contemporary American artist Philip Taaffe is best known for his visually stimulating works. His art is a synthesis of cultural motifs, abstract patterns, and process-based techniques. From Islamic mosques to Japanese perforated screens, Taaffe borrows richly from his extensive world travels. His works have been displayed at solo exhibitions, including art galleries in Dublin, Paris, and Brooklyn. Taaffe’s oil on paper mounted to canvas, Anthology III, is a key lot of the upcoming Winter Southern Estates sale at Everard Auctions and Appraisals. Dated 1991-92, the painting highlights dense patterns in shades of green, purple, and pink on a pale yellow background. It is also noteworthy for its iconographic abstraction.
A portrait by Scottish artist Harrington Mann depicting his niece, Erminie Pamela Sharpe, also leads the listings. The oil on canvas depicts the young girl dressed in a blue dress and yellow tights with a hula hoop in her hands. A member of the influential Glasgow Boys movement in the 1880s, Harrington shared a collective passion for naturalism and realism. Glasgow School artists painted real people in real settings using techniques considered innovative for the time.
French glassmaker Lalique’s glass and chrome Chene chandelier (1955) is a striking decorative lot. With 12 glass leaf inserts above a domed base and three interior lights, the chandelier is designed with a frosted glass ceiling mount. Fabric covers the metal cable.
