Howard Kanovitz
Kanovitz Andre champagne: vintage 1970s wood grain still life pop art style

1972

About the Item

This richly-hued screenprint depicts the ripped-open box packaging for Andre Champagne Cellars. On the side of the box is printed "Cold Duck," referring to the popular inexpensive sparkling wine made by Andre. At the base of the packaging, the wine's slogan reads: "Nice things happen with Andre." A piece torn off the box implies that the contents have been well-used. The box sits atop a dark wood-grain table. As a photo realist, Howard Kanovitz sought to challenge what is thought of as reality, rather than replicate it. Kanovitz reacted to the emotional punch of abstract expressionism with uncanny compositions and flat planes of color, suggesting a world of ambiguities between the seen and unseen. Of the artist, Chuck Close said: “His influence was that he made working from photographs seem like a good idea.” Paper 35.5 x 27.25 in. / 90 x 69 cm Image 31.5 x 23 in. / 80 x 58.5 cm Silkscreen on white paper. Edition 100: this impression 40/100. Signed by the artist lower right in pencil, numbered 40/100 lower left. A copy of this print is in the collection of the Arts Council Collection, London.

    By Michael Hurson
    Located in New York, NY
    A colorful pop art drawing of a whimsical landscape scene featuring red flowers, green trees, yellow sun, and blue sky and clouds with cubist furniture on a front porch. Two flies converse over bentwood chairs drawn in black, red and white, in this whimsical work by famed New York artist Michael Hurson. Framed in white enamel. Paper 23.5 x 32.5 in. / 59.5 x 82.5 cm Frame 27 x 35 x 2 in. / 68.5 x 89 x 5 cm Two Flies on a Bentwood Chair by Michael Hurson.

This mixed-media lithograph with silkscreen portrays the colorful scene of a lush, sun-drenched front porch.

In the center of the composition, printed on the base layer of paper, a bright yellow sun sits atop a liquid, sky-blue background, and a jaunty, crayon-textured cloud. A porch door...

  • Orchid, gorgeous signed/n silkscreen by renowned 1970s realist artist
    By Lowell Nesbitt
    Located in New York, NY
    Lowell Nesbitt Orchid, 1979 Silkscreen on wove paper Pencil signed, dated and numbered 144/175 by Lowell Nesbitt on the front Published by Charles Cardinale Fine Creations, Inc., with blind stamp on the front 25 × 25 inches Unframed This work is pencil signed, dated and numbered 144/175 by Lowell Nesbitt on the front. About Lowell Nesbitt. Lowell Nesbitt, who was born in Baltimore on Oct. 4, 1933, was a graduate of the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia and also attended the Royal College of Art in London, where he worked in stained glass & etching. In 1964, the Corcoran Gallery or Art in Washington gave him one of his first museum exhibitions, and by the mid 1970's he had decided to leave the museum a bequest of more than $1 million. But in 1989, he publicly revoked the bequest after the Corcoran canceled a disputed exhibition of photographs by Robert Mapplethorpe, who was an old friend. Mr. Nesbitt named the Phillips Collection as a beneficiary instead. He was frequently grouped with the Photo Realists, but his images were more interpretively distorted, somewhat loosely painted and boldly abbreviated. He had many subjects: studio interiors, articles of clothing, piles of shoes and groupings of fruits and vegetables. He also painted his dog, a Rottweiler named Echo, the Neoclassical facades of SoHo's 19th century cast-iron buildings and several of Manhattan's major bridges. Despite such variety, Lowell Nesbitt was best known for gargantuan images or irises, roses, lilies and other flowers, which he often depicted in close up so that their petals seemed to fill the canvas. Dramatic, implicitly sexual and a little ominous, they earned the artist a popularity with the general public that tended to overshadow his reputation within the art world. In 1980, the United States Postal Service issued four stamps based on Mr. Nesbitt's floral paintings. He also served as the official artist for the space flights of Apollo 9...

  • George Brookshaw's Black Frontiniac Wine Grape Aquatint from "Pomona Brittanica"
    By George Brookshaw
    Located in Alamo, CA
    George Brookshaw's (1751-1823) beautiful Black Frontiniac Wine Grape hand-colored aquatint engraving, plate XVII from his "Pomona Brittanica", considered to be the finest British botanical large format treatise of the 19th-century. His engravings were unique for their rich tones and colors, elegant compositions with the fruit seeming to float on a rich mottled background. The print is presented in a gold and burgundy-colored wood frame and a light gray mat. The print is in very good condition. Another Brookshaw engraving from his series of fruit illustrations is available on 1stdibs. It is framed and matted identically to this one.
