19th & 20th Century Art
Sale #2662

An array of fine art bridges the seasons and centuries alike. Among the top nineteenth-century offerings are an early Barbizon School drawing by Jean-François Millet, Femme sur l’âne, color pastels, circa 1855–60; a stunning Symbolist watercolor, Deux Femmes, circa 1890, by Auguste Rodin; and scarce etchings and lithographs by Whistler, Cassatt, Renoir, Pissarro, Cézanne, and Monet—including a kaleidoscopic proof made in collaboration with the printmaker George W. Thornley, Vue d’une côte avec des voiliers, circa 1894.

Highlights among the modern works include drawings and prints by European artists including Munch, Kollwitz, Léger, Delaunay, Chagall, Moore, and Giacometti. Two signature, mid-career works by of the pillars of European modernism lead the section: Pablo Picasso’s bold and colorful still life study, Fleurs, color crayons, 1959, and Henri Matisse’s Jeune Femme aux Poissons Rouges, pen and ink, circa 1930. There is also a significant group of American modernist works, including paintings, drawings and prints, and a section devoted to Latin American modernists.
