Rago Spotlights Claudio Bravo, Carmen Herrera, and Other Post War and Contemporary ArtistsNov 10, 2021 11:00 EST
With an oeuvre of over 500 artworks, Chilean artist Claudio Bravo is best known for his hyper-realistic depictions of paper bags. Inspired by the imagery of paper packages placed on the table, Bravo also painted everyday objects like aluminum cans, helmets, and other packaging. The upcoming timed auction of Post War and Contemporary Art, presented by Rago, will showcase Claudio Bravo’s Untitled Work (Bolsas de Papel). The 1969 piece is a pastel and gouache on paper that captures the color and texture of paper packaging.
Cuban American artist Carmen Herrera’s minimalist artwork is available at the event. The untitled 2013 acrylic on canvas is covered entirely in red with two rectangular patches of blue at the corners. The auction will also offer Big Wheel of Shiva, a wrapped and threaded sculpture by Sheila Hicks. To view the full catalog or to place a bid, visit Rago.
