In an interview with the Smithsonian American Art Museum, contemporary artist Deborah Butterfield connected her work with her passion for karate and horseback riding: “Each day, whether it’s in the studio or with your horse or in the dojo, you hope that you come to some point of harmony and satisfaction.” One of Butterfield’s signature horse sculptures, a 2002 work titled Isabel, will be available in Rago’s upcoming Post War + Contemporary Art auction. It is made of cast bronze treated to resemble natural wood. An untitled steel wire sculpture from Ruth Asawa, executed in the early 1950s, also stands out among the listings.
Andy Warhol’s 1971 Cow screenprint is available as well. Warhol began his Cow series of bovine heads while still exploring printmaking as his favored medium. The example on offer is an unlimited edition from Bill Miller’s Wallpaper Studio, Inc. in New York. Ten spin paintings from Damien Hirst also appear in this sale, all acrylic on paper works with such shapes as hearts, butterflies, houses, and skulls.
