Roger de la Fresnaye (1885-1925) Nature morte à l’oeuf 1910 oil on board mounted on panel 66.2 x 50.9 cm signed and dated ‘R de la Fresnaye.10’ (upper right) Price: $157,500 USD (inc. 5% UK import VAT) Provenance: John Quinn, New York (by 1926) Pierre Matisse Gallery, New York Jerome H. Stone Collection, Illinois (acquired from the above in 1952) Literature: J. Quinn, F. Watson & B. Rogers, The John Quinn (1870-1925) Collection of Paintings, Watercolors, Drawings & Sculpture, Huntington, 1926, p. 55 (illustrated, titled Still life) G. Seligman, Roger de la Fresnaye, Neuchâtel, 1969, p. 130 (not illustrated, incorrect dimensions) Notes: Roger de la Fresnaye was born into an aristocratic family in 1885 in the northern French city of Le Mans. Having undertaken artistic training at the Académie Julian and the École des Beaux-Arts, de la Fresnaye began to develop his own artistic identity at the Ranson Academy in Paris, under the tutelage of Maurice Denis. His early work was consequently influenced by the decorative simplifications of Denis' Symbolism, not to mention his poetic use of colour. Shortly after leaving the Academy de la Fresnaye met Raymond Duchamp-Villon and was introduced to Cubism as practiced within the Section d'Or group. For a short time he experimented with form under the influence of Cezanne, producing studies reminiscent of Picasso's sculptural works of 1907-08. Unlike Picasso however, de la Fresnaye was not invested in Cubism as an exploration of form and space and like the other Section d'Or Cubists, saw the analytic style which followed from Picasso's 1907-08 works as colourless and impersonal. Rather than follow the teachings of Picasso and Braque, de la Fresnaye chose not to compromise his earlier symbolist style. We therefore see his sculptural experimentations give way to a personal interpretation of Cubism as decorative, the forms in his outdoor scenes and still lifes denied of solid reality. Though his works consequently have a fragmented quality, this is concomitant with a delicacy of approach to form reminiscent of the flat pasted planes of Cubist collage rather than the earlier hermetic Cubism of Picasso and Braque. By 1913 de La Fresnaye had found an affinity with Delauney's abstract and colourful 'Orphism', though in his case the flat planes of colour found realisation in figurative scenes and still lifes. By analogy with Delauney we could say that de la Fresnaye succeeded in reconciling his early Symbolist training with the new Cubist style.

  • The Watcher - Kate Brinkworth, photorealist, dice, casino, black and white, art
    By Kate Brinkworth
    Located in London, GB
    Kate Brinkworth (b.1977) The Watcher (Black and White No. 2) 2013 oil on canvas 90 x 135 cm Price: £8,400 GBP (inc. 20% UK VAT) Provenance: Direct from the artist’s studio Notes: Kate Brinkworth undertook her artistic training at Nottingham Trent University, and graduated in 2000 with first class honours. She rapidly began exhibiting her work, and her first major solo show took place in 2001 at Britart Gallery, London. Her success led to further exhibitions across the country and abroad, and she began featuring regularly in several international art fairs and won numerous awards. These include the Westgate Prize (2004), and a commission from GUS headquarters in Mayfair. Kate Brinkworth's painting stems from her curiosity in films, particularly those directed by or in the style of Hitchcock. She is particularly inspired by effects created though experimentation with focus, and repeatedly photographs her still lifes with various shutter speeds, camera angles and lighting to find the optimum composition. Brinkworth's style uses the language of film, advertising and photography to create these unique images; her visits to Las Vegas have developed her interest in the representation of objects associated with vice. Painted in varying degrees of focus, her expert technique deceives the viewer into believing the work is a photograph, due to the realism of her subject matter and style, and the thin application of paint which gives a smooth, glossy finish. It is only on closer inspection that the viewer realises the work is entirely painted by hand. Brinkworth's works challenge our perceptions of the image; in our contemporary world inundated with visual stimuli, she painstakingly labours over her compositions to make us look at these familiar objects in a new way. In a parallel challenge to contemporary conventions her technique mirrors the Renaissance mural technique of the 'cartoon', a drawing which would be pricked along the lines and dusted with charcoal to transfer the skeleton of the image to the wall. Brinkworth similarly maps out her photographs onto both sides of sheets of paper and rubs the reverse to move the image onto the canvas. Once the composition is mapped out, she begins working into the picture in oil using her distinctive technique. Categories: The Watcher, Kate Brinkworth, photorealist, dice, gambling, casino...

  • Enid Munroe Mid Century Modernist Oil Painting Still Life with Fruit and Bread
    By Enid Munroe
    Located in Surfside, FL
    Genre: Modern Subject: Kitchen still life with pineapple, sourdough bread and lemons Medium: oil paint, done in a sgraffito, impasto somewhat brutalist technique Surface: board Country: United States Dimensions: 18 X 24 Being sold unframed Enid Munroe re-establishes the aesthetic worth of ordinary manufactured objects within the basic form language of Cubism. In her painting the artist uses trompe-l'oeil to render her composition, involving realistic imagery in order to create the optical illusion that the depicted objects exist in three dimensions. Enid Munroe is an artist and teacher who is well known regionally for her paintings, works on paper and Gold leaf, silver leaf, trompe l’oeil collage and assemblage series. She has been included in numerous invitational and juried exhibitions both nationally and regionally. Her works are in leading public, corporate and private collections including the Brooklyn Museum and the National Museum of American Art. Munroe cites painter Georgia O’Keeffe as one her influences and sources of inspiration. “Georgia O’Keeffe really helped lift the concept of women as artists,” stated Munroe. Munroe lived and worked in Mexico, Japan and Italy before settling in Connecticut. She is the author of An Artist in the Garden: A Guide to Creative and Natural Gardening (Henry Holt & Co, 1994) and has been active in regional art events including the founding of the annual Pequot Library...
