Swann Auction Galleries to Offer Works of Everett Shinn, Joseph Stella, and More in Modern & Post-War Art AuctionMay 25, 2023 12:00 EDT
Leading the upcoming Modern & Post-War Art sale from Swann Auction Galleries is Everett Shinn’s Central Park, New York. A member of the Ashcan School, Everett Shinn was an American painter, muralist, illustrator, and theater scene designer, mainly based in New York City. Typical of Ashcan art, his vibrantly colored canvases depict urban life, as well as his home and theater murals. A member of “The Eight,” Shinn explored urban topics, visiting the famous parks and sparkling cafes of New York as well as exploring the neighborhood communities of the metropolis. He created a style of picturesque scenes that merged quiet moments with dramatic action, most notably in his pastel and oil paintings of urban spectacles.
Another distinguishable lot is a pencil and color crayon work by Joseph Stella titled Portrait of a Young Girl. A gifted draftsman, Italian-born American modernist Joseph Stella produced drawings for most of his career, beginning as a Realist academic studying immigrants and ethnicity. His silverpoint and oil portraits, most of which date from the 1920s, are highly valued today. Other items on offer include an oil on canvas painting by Hans Richter, renowned for his work in painting, sculpture, and avant-garde film.
