Among the top lots of this auction is a limited edition lithograph by Joan Miró (lot #91; estimate: USD 70,000 – $100,000). Dated 1975, this hand-signed piece comes from an edition of 30. Titled La folle au piment rageur (The Crazy Chili Pepper), the work embraces color and whimsy. It features the artist’s signature stars and scribbles. This is one of several designs that Miró developed in the 1970s under that title, all featuring blobs of orange color with black accents.

Contemporary artworks are also represented in this catalog, including a Heal silkscreen by Robert Indiana from 2014 (lot #50; estimate: $18,000 – $25,000). The offered variation includes the word “Heal” in silver against a soft rainbow background. It uses the visual language of Indiana’s iconic Love sculpture, which arranges the four-letter word in a square shape. Also available is a 2012 archival mixed media print suite from Carole A. Feuerman (lot #71; estimate: $12,000 – $15,000). The artist is a hyperrealistic sculptor best known for her depictions of swimmers and bathers. The available mixed media print suite shows one of Feuerman’s favored images— a woman resting her head, torso, and arms on an inflatable tube— in four sets of colors. This image is known as Survival of Serena and is inspired by the Cuban immigrants who came to the United States by sea in the 1960s.

Roy Lichtenstein’s American Indian Theme V, a 1980 woodcut on handmade Suzuki paper, is another key lot in the upcoming event (lot #72; estimate: $15,000 – $20,000). It is an artist’s proof from an edition of 50 and depicts a person’s face against an abstract background. Lichtenstein is best known for his comic-book inspired Pop art, but he also experimented with Native American imagery throughout his career. The artist grew up in Manhattan and frequently visited the American Museum of Natural History. He later applied his Pop Art style of primary colors and thick black outlines to stereotypically Native imagery, including baskets, totems, masks, and beadwork.   

Other key lots in this upcoming sale include: 

  • Yaacov Agam’s Fascination, a 1995 prismagraph artist’s proof (lot #80; estimate: $14,000 – $18,000) 
  • Itzchak Tarkay’s Café Tamar, a 2000 original acrylic on canvas painting (lot #27; estimate: $12,000 – $18,000) 
  • A contemporary splatter work by Damien Hirst (lot #82; estimate: $10,000 – $14,000) 
  • Prints from Keith Haring’s The Story of Red & Blue series (lots #109 – 111; estimates: $6,000 – $8,000 each)
