"$30,000 USD" 

Sonia Delaunay was born in the Ukraine in 1885 and raised in St. Petersburg. This piece is gouache on paper, 25cm by 18cm (9.8" by 7.1") signed and in good condition. After studying drawing at Karlsruhe under Schmidt-Reutter she came to Paris in 1905 to be close to avant-garde circles. She studied at the Academie de la Palette, where Ozenfant and Dunoyer de Segonzac were fellow students. Her early work was influenced by the Fauves; some of her pictures from this period have an expressionist edge that contrasts with the gaiety of her later work. She had a short-lived marriage to Wilhelm Uhde. Her first show was in 1908; she married Robert Delaunay in 1910. She did not exhibit her paintings again in any number until 1953, twelve years after her husband's death. Although she would not compete with her husband, Sonia painted throughout her life. Delaunay was not regarded as a great artist, but she was important. Her work was dismissed as being too decorative; but she did not diminish painting, she elevated the decorative arts. With her husband, she developed a style, sometimes called orphism, that was a spin-off of cubism. She was part of the radical drive to purify and elevate art through abstraction. At the same time, she helped direct art toward the gently decorative, a natural development, since decoration is itself generally abstract. She worked continually throughout her long life in many artistic media beside painting. From the creation of a pieced quilt for her son in which she synthesized Russian peasant blanket design with Cubism, she moved on to collage, bookbinding, book illustration and eventually, to costume and theatre design, fashion design and decorative arts. She died in Paris in 1979 at the age of ninety-four.

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.

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 Gesů 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.

Born in Columbus, Ohio, George Bellows was a major American artist of the early 20th century, known for his paintings of boxing match figures and for his lithographs, numbering nearly two hundred, of his paintings. He became an instructor in New York at the Art Students League and at the Art Institute of Chicago. He graduated from Ohio State University in 1903 and then attended the New York School of Art where he studied with Robert Henri, Kenneth Hayes Miller, and Hardesty Gilmore Maratta. Henri inspired him to treat urban subjects in a realist, painterly manner, and between 1906 and 1913, he produced a number of scenes from New York life that defined his fine arts career. In 1908, he won a prize at the annual show at the National Academy of Design, the first of many honors during his life. Bellows also worked as a newspaper and magazine illustrator and won early acclaim for those activities. He was elected to the National Academy of Design, but he was part of the group that rebelled against them in 1919 with the Exhibition of Independent Artists and the 1913 Armory Show. In 1920, he settled in Woodstock, New York where he purchased property next to his good friend Eugene Speicher and lived during the summers until his early death from a ruptured appendix in 1925.

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.

Galeries Daimau, Barcelona held his first one man show in 1916. Then beginning 1918 while in America, Gleizes developed an interest in spiritual values and as a result the theme of religious thought entered many of his subsequent writings. He founded Moly-Sabata, another untopian community of artists and craftsmen in Sablons. 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.

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.
