Californian artist Xavier Martinez (1869 – 1943) was famous for creating landscape and coastal paintings. Active in the late 19th and early 20th century, he adopted a Tonalist painting style and relied on somber grays, greens, and browns for his works. A well-known Bohemian figure, Martinez produced etchings, monotypes, graphics, and silverpoint. The upcoming sale from Turner Auctions + Appraisals presents a painting titled Mexican Mother and Child by Xavier Martinez. Made in the 1930s, the painting depicts a breastfeeding mother and child. The auction offers several other paintings by Martinez, items belonging to him, and more.
Chiura Obata’s painting titled Mountain Landscape is another significant lot. Completed in 1947, the signed artwork depicts rocky terrains amidst an almost barren landscape. The work reflects the artist’s love for nature and mountains. Born in Okayama, Japan, Obata adopted classic Japanese brush painting along with Modernist watercolor techniques. Bidders can consider works by Virginia Swinburne Hale, Louis Kronberg, Ruth Gaines, Josephine Wood Colby, and Bertha Reid as well.
