A slice of cake from Claes Oldenburg’s Wedding Souvenir series is one of the highlighted lots in the upcoming auction of Prints & Multiples Online, presented by Bonhams. It belongs to the collection of cake slices made of inedible white cast plaster. Oldenburg created nearly two hundred slices of cake over time as wedding gifts. This particular piece was commissioned for the wedding of his friends, Jim and Judith Elliot. Though unnumbered, it has the artist’s name, title, and date stamped on the underside.
Another highlighted lot from the auction is a framed painting by Donald Sultan. An American artist, Sultan is particularly known for his large-scale still life and abstract paintings using industrial materials. Offered in this sale is his signed and screenprinted piece titled Wallflowers (Blue). In this painting, he uses recurring impressions of blue flowers against a contrasting background. An 1896 lithograph, Sutro Baths, San Francisco, by an unknown artist is also available. Prints and lithographs from Sol LeWitt, Pablo Picasso, and Sam Francis are on sale as well. Interested collectors can view the entire catalog and register to bid on Bonhams.
