Realist Artworks by John Lavery, Andrew Wyeth Highlight Pook & Pook, Inc’s Americana & International SaleJan 19, 2023 09:00 EST
Irish painter Sir John Lavery was known for his realistic landscapes, portraits, and wartime scenes. He was a member of the Glasgow School of Painting. With an emphasis on brushstrokes, Lavery’s paintings have a sketch-like quality. He was influenced by outdoor and naturalist French styles of art. One such painting by Lavery, titled The Beach Deauville – Morning, is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Pook & Pook, Inc. The oil on board is characteristic of the lively ambient effect the artist creates in his paintings with his brushwork. Another noteworthy painting on offer is Andrew Wyeth’s watercolor titled The Lookout or Borestone Mountain. The building illustrated was located in Northern Maine, near the village of Manson.
A Chippendale mahogany tea table leads the furniture listings. The piece was designed in Philadelphia and is striking for its decorative carvings. A highly rare brass candlestick, portraying a sculpture of Martin Luther standing on a raised circular plinth, is a noteworthy decorative lot in the catalog. The father of the Reformation is depicted holding a scalloped drip pan and socket. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare and browse other online auctions.
