Chuck Close is an artist who believes in redefining and fusing art through forms such as photography and painting. Close’s work is creatively tricky as his admirers are often unable to make a distinction between paintings and photography and that quality makes him widely appreciated. His ‘Self Portrait-Pulp’ is one item that portrays his artisanship at Prints & Multiples. The self-portrait from 2001 is a handmade paper pulp consisting of eleven various grays and is the highest estimated item in the auction.
Offered by Doyle Auction, amongst the 168 lots, auctioneers can bid for categories such as fine arts, collectibles, and decorative art. Among them, Andy Warhol’s color screen print ‘MARILYN’, brings tremendous value to the collection. Similarly, complementing Warhol’s work is SNOW ON THE EL by Martin Lewis. The item is a Drypoint from 1931, on cream laid paper which seems to be a representation of a cold and a snowy setting. More information is available at Doyle Auction.
