Margaret Keane remained anonymous through most of her career. The credit for all her work was claimed by her former husband, who was not a painter. She eventually received recognition for the big-eyed paintings that Life Magazine called “the most popular art now being produced in the free world.” Keane’s work titled Big Eyes on the Beach is available on the second day of the upcoming Spring Sale, presented by Eldred’s. A Henry Moore bronze sculpture titled Divided Head is also available in the auction. Moore’s sculptures often explored post-war Modernism and have influenced many other contemporary British artists.
Between 1924 and 1925, Alexandre Jacovleff went on an African expedition referred to as the ‘Croisière Noire.’ His depictions of the people, landscapes, and cultures he encountered earned him the French Legion of Honor in 1926. His depiction of a Banda woman from central Africa is available in the auction. Beyond fine art, it will also include a variety of rugs, decorative art, and furniture.
