2022

About the Item

Artist: Jack Graves III (American, 1988-) Title: "Venus de Milo Sculpture (Alexandros of Antioch)" Series: Sculpture *Signed, titled, and dated by Graves on bottom Year: 2022 Medium: Original Acrylic Painted Cast Marble Sculpture Dimensions: 15.75" tall x 4.38" wide x 4.38" deep Weight: 5.4 pounds Condition: In mint condition Notes: This is a unique work, not from an edition. The raw white cast marble sculpture itself was not created by the artist; it is a found object which Graves has hand-painted and transformed with his own design. The sculpture is cast marble: over 90% natural crushed Greek Marble stone with a small amount of resin poured into a mold, made in Heraklion, Greece. The Venus de Milo is an ancient Greek sculpture that was created during the Hellenistic period, sometime between 150 and 125 BC. It is one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture, having been prominently displayed at the Louvre Museum since shortly after the statue was rediscovered on the island of Milos, Greece, in 1820. The work was originally attributed to the 4th century Athenian sculptor Praxiteles, but, based upon an inscription on its plinth, it is now widely agreed that the statue was created later, and instead is the work of Alexandros of Antioch. Biography: Jack Graves III is an American artist, born in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. He grew up surrounded by inspiration having an art dealer as a father, John Graves Jr., who founded 'The Collector's Exchange' in St. Augustine, FL in 1978, (today Graves International Art). At the age of 5, his family moved away from urban Jacksonville, Florida to rural Somerset, Virginia. There, he grew up in the country attending and graduating from Grymes Memorial School in 2003 winning the Art Departmental award. He then attended The Blue Ridge School for four years, an over 100 year old all-male boarding school, also winning the Art Departmental award there out of the entire student body in 2007. Upon high school graduation, he attended school abroad for a year studying art at the University of Newcastle, UK and then back to the United States to finish at Hampden-Sydney College, VA. He would be recognized for his art at both of these colleges. A large photograph portrait of Graves working in the college's art studio whilst an art student hangs today within the ground floor of the famous Bortz Library at Hampden-Sydney College. After college, Graves took his talents into the art world working in Charlottesville, VA. He mainly works in acrylic painting, but also some pen and ink works on paper. He is predominantly represented by his father's gallery operated by his father John Graves and brother Alex Graves, Graves International Art in St. Augustine, FL, though regularly participates in shows and exhibitions among other galleries along the United States East Coast. His work is featured on the two most exclusive online art marketplaces, 1stdibs and Artsy.

The sculpture is cast marble: over 90% natural crushed Greek Marble stone with a small amount of resin poured into a mold, made in Heraklion, Greece. Diana is a goddess in Roman and Hellenistic religion, primarily considered a patroness of the countryside, hunters, crossroads, and the Moon.

    Located in Saint Augustine, FL
    Artist: Kazuhide Yamazaki (Japanese-American, 1951-) Title: "Pitcher III" *Signed and dated by Yamazaki in pencil lower right Year: 1981 Medium: Original Monotype on Arches paper Limited edition: (1/1) Printer: likely Perma Press, New York, NY Publisher: likely Perma Press, New York, NY Sheet size: 30.25" x 22.25" Image size: 24" x 18" Condition: Light UV stain to sheet. In otherwise very good condition with strong colors Rare Notes: Titled lower center and the medium inscribed lower left by Yamazaki in pencil. Arches watermark lower right. Kazuhide Yamazaki was commissioned to create elaborate and colorful stage artwork by The Rolling Stones for their 1981 American tour from September 25 - December 19, 1981, (see final photo for reference). Also known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques, a monotype is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, editioning is not possible. Biography: Kazuhide Yamazaki is a Japanese born artist who studied printmaking in San Francisco now living in New York City. The artist is best known for his work for The Rolling Stones. On their 1981 American tour, he designed the sets, tour poster, t-shirts, and record cover of the tour album. His unique hand painted monotypes can be found in many important collections including The Brooklyn Museum and the J.P. Morgan Chase Art Collection. From an article by Rolling Stone magazine on Yamazaki and his artistic contribution to The Rolling Stones' 1981 Tour: "Designed by Japanese artist Kazuhide Yamazaki, the stage was the largest mobile concert set ever built: sixty-four feet wide, with eighty-foot ramps stretching out from the right and left sides, and another 150 feet of fluttering silk strips streaming into the bleachers. The massive scrims surrounding the stage — painted with post-modernist pastel...
