Carl Moll, Austrian,1861-1945. This stunning landscape is a study in impressionist color and light and dark. It is an oil on canvas, signed lower right. It is 15 5/8" by 19 5/8" in a handsome newer gold frame with overall dimensions of 26 5/8" by 29 5/8". Moll is a master of light and dark and the use of impressionist brushstrokes to convey the impact of the intensity of color at dusk. He is listed in Benezit and sells for up to $304,000. He was a member of the Worpswede group. "Worpswede is a group of artists who settled after 1889 in the north German village of Worpswede, near Bremen, in order to paint the local landscape. They depicted the heaths, meadows, forests, streams, bridges, windmills, and peasants of the area in a romantic and sentimental style, somewhat reminiscent of the earlier 19th-century Barbizon school in France. Fritz Mackensen and Otto Modersohn." Carl Moll, born in Vienna in 1861, grew to be a painter of landscapes, interiors and still lifes, whose later work became a testimony to the Art Nouveau period. Beginning his art studies under Viennese landscape painter, Carl Haunold, Moll later became the student of Christian Griepenkerl at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. By far the most influential teacher of his career was Emil Jakob Schindler, with whom he painted and remained friends from 1881 until Schindler’s death in 1892. Although one of the founding members of the Vienna Secession in 1897, Moll left the movement in 1905 along with other followers of Gustav Klimt. While artistic director of the Miethke art gallery and dealership, Karl Moll organized numerous exhibitions, and, during this time, was credited for persuading the Austrian Gallery to purchase many important works by Cézanne, Van Gogh and Renoir. From 1912 on, Moll traveled Europe and worked for private collectors, saving many important works from obscurity by bringing them back to Vienna. As a post-secessionist artist, Moll concentrated on landscapes and light, as well as on capturing the atmosphere and ambiance of the scenes he depicted. In 1930, he published a book on his former teacher and friend, Emil Jakob Schindler, and continued organizing worthy exhibitions until his death in 1945.

Frantesek Kupka, 1871-1957, Opocno. Bohemia, Czech, and died in France. This stunning early mordernist painting is an early and an extremely fine example of Kupka's painting. It is approximately 17"H by 13"w in a 4" frame. It is signed clearly lower right and the entire painting and signature under black light looks good with no in painting. Kupka attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Prague at 17 years old and the Beaux Arts in Vienna. He moved to Paris in 1895 and also won the Prix de Rome. He lived in Putreau and was also a Professor for Academie Beaux Arts de Prague for Czech art students in Paris. He was in many exhibitions and after 1910 he remained faithful to the Modernist style he is known for. This painting is from his earliest modernist period. He is held in great regard with artists such as Delauney and Picabia. Kupka's works are represented in many museums: Museum of Modern Art, Chicago Art Institute, Los Angeles, Guggenheim, Paris Museum of Modern Art, etc and his paintings sell for up to 1 Million. He has a very long listing in Benezit and has been the subject of many articles and books. A Czech painter and graphic artist, he was a pioneer and co-founder of the early phases of the abstract art movement. In 1887 he began training as an artist at the Prague academy under Frantisek Sequens, who had been strongly influenced by the Nazarener School. In 1891 the artist transferred to the academy in Vienna, where he worked under Professor Eisenmenger until 1893. In 1894 Kupka traveled to London and Scandinavia, settling in Paris, France in 1895. He worked as an illustrator of books and posters and created satirical drawings for newspapers and magazines. In 1905 Kupka moved to Puteaux in the suburbs, where he got acquainted with Jacques Villon, who introduced him to a circle of painters in 1910/11, including Marcel Duchamp, Robert Delaunay, Fernand Léger, Francis Picabia and others. Through their discussions of Cubism, Futurism and the relationship between painting and music, Kupka's work became increasingly abstract, reflecting his theories of motion, color, and orphism. In 1909, he had exhibited for the first time at the Salon d'Automne, with the submitted work marking a break in his representational style. In 1912, Kupka exhibited his abstract pictures, which are associated with Orphism because of their proximity to music. In 1918 Frantisek Kupka accepted a post as guest professor in Prague and in 1931 he co-founded the group 'Abstraction-Création' with Hans Arp, Jean Hélion, Auguste Herbin, Georges Valmier and Georges Vantongerloo, becoming a member of the group's board. In 1936, his work was included in the exhibition Cubism and Abstract Art at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and in an important show with another Czech painter, Alphonse Mucha, at the Jeu de Paume in Paris. Kupka spent the Second World War in Beaugency, returning to Puteaux immediately after the liberation. In 1946 at the occasion of his 75th birthday the artist's first major retrospective was shown in Prague. In 1955 Kupka participated in documenta I in Kassel, Germany.He died in Puteaux on July 21, 1957 and a year later a large-scale retrospective exhibition took place at the 'Musée d'Art Moderne' in Paris, which dedicated an entire room to Frantisek Kupka.

Edgar Payne left home at age 14 and found work painting houses, stage sets, and signs. His travels took him through the Ozarks and into Mexico. Except for a brief period at the Art Institute of Chicago, he remained a self-taught artist. On his first visit to California in 1909, he spent several months painting in Laguna Beach before visiting San Francisco. While in San Francisco he met artist Elsie Palmer whom he married in Chicago in 1912. In 1917 he returned to Glendale, California with a commission from Chicago's Congress Hotel for a mural of 11,000 square yards of muslin which was accomplished with the help of other local artists and installed shortly thereafter. In 1918, the Paynes established a home and studio in Laguna Beach where he organized and became the first president of the local art association. He continued painting and exhibiting in Los Angeles and Laguna until 1922 when he and Elsie began a two-year painting tour of Europe. During the next eight years their winter residence was mainly in and around New York City. They traveled from coast to coast in the U.S. until 1932 when they returned to Hollywood and the following year separated. Payne is internationally famous for his canvases depicting Indians riding through desert canyons and landscapes of the Sierra Nevada. He produced a color motion picture called "Sierra Journey" and Payne Lake in the High Sierra is named for him.

Claude Le Lorrain Gelee, French, 1600-1682. This painting is an exquisite example of Lorrain genius. It is oil on canvas 31" by 24" (79cm by 61cm), signed lower right. Provenance: It is likely painted in Rome, and exhibited throughout Europe. Documented to be from the collection of Robert Batke, circa 1888 in Germany. Acquisition by Batke, in Berlin, numerous generations back. Passed on to his son Richard Batke, it was inherited by Richards widow, the present Cecilia M Freed, with other Batke holdings. Claude Gellee, who was called Lorrain after his native province of Lorraine, was born in 1600 at Chamagne, France, near Nancy. He settled in Rome perhaps as early as 1613. He spent nearly all his adult life there. When a young man, he worked in the household of Agostino Tassi, the landscape and marine painter, in some menial function, either as a pastry cook or a general factotum. We know that he was in Rome at the time and continued to live there, working with Poussin and Salvator Rosa. His early work was chiefly in fresco, of which little remains, but his fame is based on landscape canvases, often with biblical or mythological subjects. Patronized principally by the Italian nobility, he also enjoyed an international reputation. Together with Poussin he is responsible for the classical revival in French landscape painting of the seventeenth century. Among the many later painters influenced by his work was Turner. He died in 1682.
