Stamp “ Sammlung G. W. Stein - Zurich” (verso, upper right, , purple/red ink) Franz Marc was born in Munich, Germany in 1880. His father was a successful Munich landscape and genre artist who influenced him strongly. Marc studied at the Munich Academy. He left there for Paris, then went home full of the doings of the Fauves and Cubists. In 1911 he joined with Klee and Kandinsky to found a group called the Blue Rider (Blaue Reiter). Their members aspired to nothing less than painting the essence of things. They put feeling first, faithfulness to nature or to formal conventions last. They were the clear sweet dawn of German expressionism. a school that later languished from too much heaviness, bitterness and swagger. For Marc, as for his friend and mentor, Kandinsky, implementation of new art forms was indeed a religious crusade. He saw pure abstract art as truth and worked toward it with the same fervor he had once directed toward the study of theology. Marc loathed conflict of any kind. Man therefore revolted him, and animals he painted with strong, elaborately rhythmical compositions. He transformed their animality with flashing colors; a horse might be sky blue or fire red. Marc's career ended abruptly with his conscription in 1914. He died in 1916 in Verdun.

Fernand Leger, French,1881-1955. This stunning example of Fernand Leger's imagery at his early cubust period in the 1920's is pencil on paper. It is 21.5cm w by 25cm h in a beautiful frame 45cm w by 47.5cm h. It is signed lower left F. L. 20. Fernand Léger was born in 1881, the same year both Picasso and Braque were born, in Normandy; his father was a substantial cattle grazer. Fernand was trained as an architectural draughtsman and later worked as a professional retoucher of photographs. He was an abstract painter before the War, in which he had a brilliant record. He had visited the United States twice. In France, he lived in a villa next to some railroad tracks in a Paris suburb, and a farm in Normandy where he raised pigs and made cider.It is often said that Léger was the artist of the machine age, but he was not entirely a man of his time. He knew poverty as a child, was gassed in World War I, had to flee before the invading Nazis in World War II. But there is little of death and destruction in his work. Other men have painted with more passion, few with more exuberance.Léger returned to France at the end of 1945 after spending the war years traveling and lecturing in the United States. There had been three previous visits to America in the 1930s, all entrepreneurial adventures of only modest success. He had resumed his practice of making public appearances to explain his art to a sometimes curious, sometimes bewildered public. In addition, he enjoyed many celebrity encounters, like a holiday with Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, an evening at the theatre with James Joyce and friendships with Ezra Pound and Henry Miller. His paintings sell for up to 37 Million and his paintings are in many museums.

His paintings sell for up to $2,709,303 and works on paper sell for up to $150,000. Initially influenced by the Impressionists, at twenty-one his work La Seine a Asnieres was exhibited at the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1902. With several friends in 1906 he founded the Abbaye de Creteil outside Paris. This commune of artists and writers scorned bourgeois society and sought to create nonallegorical, epic art based on modern themes. The commune closed in 1908 due to financial restraints and in 1909 he came under the influence of Fernand Leger, Robert Delauney, Jean Metzinger and later to Henri Faucconnier who led Gleizes to his cubist style. In 1910 he exhibited at the Salon des Independents, Paris and the Jack of Diamonds in Moscow. His paintings had become abstract by 1915. Galeries Daimau, Barcelona held his first one man show in 1916. Later in his career he was commissioned for murals for the Paris Worlds Fair of 1937. In 1947, a major Gleizes retrospective occurred in Lyons at the Chapelle du Lycee Ampere.

Price on Request 

Giovanni Battista Gaulli, Italian, 1639-1709, called Baccico or Baccicia. Italian Angels or Putti on Clouds plus a small portrait of a man is a charming example of Gaulli's work. It is 5" by 7 3/4" of pen and sepia brown ink on paper. Provenance is Leslie Hindman Auction, Collection of P Waite, English Collection until 1994, German Collection Basenge. Condition good upper life corner restored. Giovanni Battista Gaulliwas a painter of the Italian High Baroque verging onto that of the Rococo. He is best known for his grand, Gianlorenzo Bernini-influenced illusionistic vault fresco in the church of the Gesù in Rome.Gaulli was born in Genoa, where his parents died from the plague of 1657. In mid-17th century, Gaulli's Genoa was a cosmopolitan Italian artistic center open to both commercial and artistic enterprises from north European countries, including countries with non-Catholic populations such as England and the Dutch provinces. Painters such as Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck stayed in Genoa for a few years. Gaulli's earliest influences would have come from an eclectic mix of these foreign painters and other local artists including Valerio Castello, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, and Bernardo Strozzi, whose warm palette Gaulli adopted. In the 1660s, he experimented with the cooler palette and linear style of Bolognese classicism. He soon, however, moved to Rome. In 1662, he was accepted into the Roman artists' guild, the Accademia di San Luca (Academy of Saint Luke), where he was to later hold several offices. The next year, he received his first public commission for an altarpiece, in the church of San Rocco, Rome. He received many private commissions for mythological and religious works. From 1669, Gaulli's painting took on a more painterly (less linear) aspect, and the composition, organized di sotto in su ("from below looking up"), would influence his later masterpiece. At his height, Gaulli was one of Rome's most esteemed portrait painters. Gaulli is not well known for any other medium but paint, though many drawings in many media have survived. All are studies for paintings.

Maurice Utrillo, French, 1883-1955.Oil on cardstock, 6"h by 4.45"w signed LL, in good condition. Petit VaseBlanc de Fleures. Born in Paris with the name of Maurice Valadon, Maurice Utrillo specialized in painting city scenes, especially of his beloved Paris. He was the son of teenage model, Marie-Clementine Valade, who painted under the name of Suzanne Valadon, and perhaps an amateur painter name Boissy. Unsure of the father, Valadon reportedly took him around among some of her male acquaintances including Renoir, all whom denied parentage, and so she named him after Miguel Utrillo, who was sympathetic but likely not the father. Among the artists for whom Valadon posed were Berthe Morisot, Toulouse Lautrec, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. By the age of 21, Utrillo was having the mental problems that would reoccur throughout his life. To divert him, his mother encouraged him to paint, so he made pictures of what he saw around him in his neighborhood of Montmartre. His landscapes were unique, some said bizarre, and people bought them. They became popular and influential in that they encouraged other artists to depict their own environs realistically instead of following the prevailing trends towards abstraction. Many of his Parisian scenes, painted 'en-plein air', have appeared on postcards. In the 1920s, when he was in his 40s, he had an international reputation, and in 1929, he received the Legion of Honor from the French government. In 1935, when he was 52, he married a woman named Lucie Valore, and the couple settled in Le Vesinet, near Paris. He lived into his seventies, although he had many bouts with alcoholism. He died November 5, 1955 and is buried in Montmartre in the Cimetere Saint-Vincent.

Italian artist Duilio Barnabé (1914-1961). Oil on canvas in beautiful silver leafed frame. 21cm h by 28cm w. (8.6" by 11.2"). Provenance: Private Collection, Leslie Hindman Auction, Private Collection. Barnabe reduced all subject matter in his paintings to their purist form and removed all clues to place and time through the use of monochromatic backgrounds. I believe in understated simplicity in design and art, so it goes without saying that I am a fan of Barnabé's work. Sadly, Duilio took his life while in his prime. On October 7, 1960, the night of his 46th birthday, he drove his car off the side of a mountain in the French Alps; miraculously, he escaped without injury. At the time, many questioned if it was just an accident. That question was answered when exactly one year to the day, at the same time of night and on the very same corner, he drove his car off the road once again, killing himself.
