“Grand Hotel-Hotel Taglioni” is an art in a white wooden box by an American collagist,
Joseph Cornell. Joseph Cornell was an artist who elevated a box to an art form. His works were based on everyday experiences, or in his words “the beauty of the commonplace.” With the use of objects found in libraries, museums, theaters, book shops, and antique fairs, he assembled disparate images. Offered at the highest estimation by Rago, collectors can bid for the item at Post War and Contemporary Art Auction.
A large selection of contemporary and post-war fine art, ethnographic, and textile is on display in the auction. Representing Expressionism in the collection is “The Hand of Fatima” by Alexander Calder. Created in 1969, the work is on gouache and ink paper. Alexander Calder channeled his artistry into some of the most original art of the 20th century. Like Calder, George L. K. Morris is another 20th-century abstractionist being featured in the sale. Morris incorporates gestural brushstrokes in his framed oil on canvas. One can register to bid on any of these items on Bidsquare.
