Beuys, Koons, Miro and More at Stair!
On the weekend of June 7-8, Stair in Hudson, NY will host a series of auctions offering an emphasis in 20th century, modern and contemporary art. Highlighted as a sale of its own, with several works finding their way into the other Stair catalogs, is a significant bounty of prints, photographs and sculptures by German avant-garde artist Joseph Beuys. A titan of conceptual art, Joseph Beuys is admired for his intimate contributions to movements such as Fluxus and Neo-Dadaism. Stair represents his breadth of work like a comprehensive syllabus where mixed media assemblages such as lot 409a, a lemon attached to a yellow light bulb and ready-mades like lot 16, a ‘Noiseless Blackboard Eraser,’ exist in the fascinating, deadpan posture that blurs art and daily life, for which Beuys is keenly appreciated.
Other influential artists to be featured in Stair’s sales include Armando Morales, Jeff Koons, Joan Miró, Theodoros Stamos, Richard Diebenkorn and Sonia Delaunay. Here are a few highlights to look out for during the live auction on Bidsquare!
