1850 Severin Roesen masterwork, Still Life with Fruit and Flowers in a Landscape at Heritage May 17 American & European Art auction in Dallas includes work by John Koch, John Constable, American landscape paintings from The Flanner & Buchanan Corporate Collection and British Portraits...
auction includes several prime examples, led by Suzanne Valadon’s Still Life with Fruit and Glass, 1910.
“Valadon was famously a model of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the mistress of Auguste Renoir and mother of painter Maurice Utrillo,” said Hartsock. “Here, however, with a bold, Fauvist palette and Cézanne-like emphasis on geometric forms, Valadon proves herself a talented painter, infusing the still life with distinctive femininity, notably in the eye-catching decorative dish and in the artfully-placed leafy branch with succulent pear.”
The painting is estimated at $20,000+.
Further Modern highlights include Adriaan Hermann Gouwe’s Bouquet of Calla Lillies, 1919, estimated at $6,000+, along with a significant selection of School of Paris street scenes, including Edouard-Léon Cortès’ Place de l’Opera, estimated at $25,000+, and Antoine Blanchard’s Théâtre de Vaudeville, circa 1970s, estimated at $4,000+.
