Sotheby’s Upcoming Auction Brings 2019 Pat Steir PaintingJan 25, 2021 10:00 EST - Feb 08, 2021 16:00 EST
The upcoming 80th Anniversary Charity Art Auction to Benefit the Norton Museum of Art, presented by Sotheby’s, offers 90 pieces of fine art. An untitled 2019 painting from Pat Steir is among the leading lots. Pat Steir creates her paintings by splashing and dripping color on canvas: “I began looking at Chinese Literati paintings and at Southern Song Dynasty pottery and painting, and I realized that I didn’t have to use the brush… I could use nature to paint a picture of itself by pouring the paint.” Her works mainly draw inspiration from Color Field painting, Abstract Expressionism, and Taoist philosophy.
Brendan Murphy’s Boonji Spaceman is also available for bidding. An internationally acclaimed American painter, Murphy often experiments with beauty and energy. The available sculpture, made of steel and fiberglass, resembles a person in a spacesuit taking a step forward. The figure is covered in white graffiti tags. Those interested in this or any other piece can register to bid on the Sotheby’s website.
