Afro-Cuban artist Wifredo Lam embraced his mixed-race heritage through his art. Lam’s paintings of hybrid figures give the viewers a glimpse of his distinctive style. The artist didn’t want his art to be commercialized but understood its potential for examining the human condition. Lam’s painting of a bird and fish will be available in the upcoming Antiques & Fine Art from Estates & Collections sale, presented by New Haven Auctions.
A decorated wooden horse from an Illinois carousel built in the first quarter of the 20th century is also available in this auction. For collectors of rare books, an unbound edition of Rudyard Kipling’s Le Livre de La Jungle will be presented as well. Printed in Paris in 1919, this book is the French version of Kipling’s The Jungle Book and includes colored illustrations. Many of Kipling’s books contained illustrations from his father, John Lockwood Kipling. View the online catalog of antiques and fine art exclusively on Bidsquare.
