Leading the upcoming Summer 2023 International Fine Art Sale from Barridoff Auctions are two paintings by American Abstract Expressionist artist Lynne Drexler. She was a promising young artist who studied under Hans Hofmann and Robert Motherwell in the 1960s. Despite achieving commercial success, Drexler was often overshadowed by her male contemporaries. Her work began to resurface in 2022, when several of her paintings sold for over $1 million with Christie’s. Available in this auction is Drexler’s Keller Fair Racetrack, an early work from 1959. The oil on canvas is dominated by lush shades of pink, red, and orange, arranged in abstract smudges that suggest a field of flowers. Also available is Meadow’s Edge, a 1967 painting that features yellow swirls and detailed Pointillist sections.
Several paintings by Modernist artist Bo Bartlett are also on offer. Bartlett specializes in realistic paintings that contain unexpected or even magical elements. The subjects in his paintings often appear in unusual positions or in a slightly peculiar context, giving the viewer pause. Notable in this sale is Bartlett’s The Landlord’s Daughter, a 1995 oil on canvas painting showing a young woman sitting in a bathtub. A dress hangs on the red wall behind her. In Bartlett’s HOBO (After Annigoni), which is also available with Barridoff Auctions, a man sleeps between the roots of a tree. Additional works by Rolph Scarlett, Dahlov Ipcar, Frances Hewitt, and others will be available.
