A red poppy oil on canvas painting attributed to Georgia O’Keeffe is a leading lot of the upcoming Fall Master Pop Modern Art Discovery Mix sale, presented by 500 Gallery. Signed on the back, this painting may have been a study for a larger work. O’Keeffe was a firm believer in the Modernist movement, and she was skilled in using color, composition, and abstraction to communicate emotion and ideas. The available work depicts a poppy from directly above. Peach and yellow petals radiate from the black center, contrasted with a gray background. Also notable is an abstract nude composition attributed to Lee Krasner.
Several abstract artworks are presented in this 500 Gallery event. These include a swirled abstract composition attributed to Japanese artist Kazuo Shiraga. A member of the avant-garde Gutai Art Association, a postwar artists collective, Shiraga was known for his performance art. Many of his paintings were created by applying paint to paper and canvas using his feet. “I want to paint as though rushing around a battlefield, exerting myself to collapse from exhaustion,” Shiraga stated about his practice. Collectors can also consider an abstract composition in the manner of Hans Hartung, an acrylic painting of bricks by Martin Wong, and a winter landscape attributed to Fairfield Porter.
