While many paintings represent the outer world, Abstract works tend to represent emotions or give a form to inner states and moods. Cy Twombly particularly embraced abstraction after touring the Mediterannean. Many of his works figuratively expressed his internal emotions and ideas. One of Twombly’s untitled paintings from 1965 will be featured in the upcoming Post War and Contemporary Art auction, presented by Hindman. The sale hosts over 70 lots from the Post-War era, especially from the Chicago Imagists. Highlights from the auction include works by Miyoko Ito, Gladys Nilsson, Jim Nutt, Jean Dubuffet, Wayne Thiebaud, and Barbara Rossi.
An ink-on-paper landscape piece from Leung Kui-ting is also included in the auction. Leung is known for experimenting with materials that blend contemporary and traditional styles. Philip Pearlstein’s 1974 Nude on a Hammock oil painting and a portrait of a monkey grinning from cheek to cheek by Donald Roller Wilson will be included as well. According to the New York Times, “Donald Roller Wilson’s goofy, hallucinogenic, old master-style painting of monkeys, dogs, and cats dressed up in antique costumes may be kitsch, but it’s high-quality kitsch, like good beach reading.” To view the full catalog and register to bid, visit Bidsquare.
