Born in 1932, Olga de Amaral is a Colombia-based visual artist who is known for her abstract use of fibers, gesso, and colors. Bridging the gap between local voices and global developments, de Amaral is one of the most significant names in post-war Latin American art. One of the key lots in the upcoming Post War + Contemporary Art auction, presented by Rago, is a five-part linen, gesso, and acrylic abstract work of mixed dimensions by de Amaral. Another highlight is Gerhard Richter’s oil on canvas titled 17 Nov 1996 (Teil des verworfenen Abstrakten Bildes). In the 1960s and 1970s, Richter created many of his works from black-and-white photographs and achieved his signature style by painting with a soft brush and a squeegee.
The sale also features Keith Haring’s Pop Shop VI (1989). Printed by Durham Press, Pennsylvania and published by Martin Lawrence Limited Editions, the color screenprint comes from an edition of 200. An American artist, Haring was known to use his works to advocate around issues such as AIDS awareness and safe sex. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
