Byron Browne was a leader of the American avant-garde movement of the 1930s and 40s and one of the early Abstract Expressionists. Though his work is stylistically abstract, it bears the influence of European Cubism and Surrealism. The imagery and references in Browne’s abstract art pieces are drawn from everyday life, nature, and art history. The upcoming Sarasota Estate Auction sale will feature a painting by Byron Browne titled Sphinx. The piece is signed by the artist on the bottom left and dated 1952. The auction also features Howard Chesner Behrens’ oil on canvas painting depicting Santa Maria boats in a canal. Behrens’ painting style evokes late 19th-century Impressionism.
Another notable lot is a gilt-bronze figure of Vajrasattva from the Ming dynasty. The Ming dynasty saw great artistic and cultural advancement in China. The available statue depicts the bodhisattva with a detailed crown and third eye. In this piece, Vajrasattva sits on a lotus throne with a calm expression.
