Original Da Vinci, Warhol, Picasso, more in online art auction ending Aug. 23 About 265 original works of art, fine art prints and sculptures are being sold in an Internet auction already online, at www.universallive.com, and slated to end Thursday, Aug. 23, from 6-10 p.m. (CDT
Jozza was born into an artistic family in a small town in Brazil. His mother taught art and she fed her young son’s creative passions. In 1996, Jozza relocated to Miami, Fla., with his wife and young daughter, where he established himself artistically. In 2009 Jozza was permitted to create original and limited-edition fine art Disney characters as Peter Max had done before him.
Speaking of whom, Peter Max (German/Am., b. 1937) is represented in the auction in the form of a group of original paintings over serigraphs on paper, signed by the artist. An example is Lady With Flowers (est. $1,400-$2,160), matted and framed, with an image size of 6 inches by 9 inches. The lady in the painting looks colorful and stylish (unique, too, since she’s an original).
Peter Max is one of the most iconic painters of the 20th century, a multi-dimensional artist focused on contemporary events, which he renders in a Pop Art style. He once described what he created as “cosmic imagery,” adding, “My artwork caught on right away. And before you knew it, I got an 8-page cover story in LIFE Magazine.” He explores all media, to include mass media.
Is your art collection crying out for an original Da Vinci? Not many online art auctions can say they’re selling one, but Univerallive.com has a sketch by the Italian-born master (1452-1519). It depicts a standing male figural nude, 4 ¼ inches by 6 ½ inches, matted and framed, drawn circa 1651. The lot comes with a certificate of authenticity (est. $5,000-$6,250).
Fans of Salvador Dali will be eager to bid on the six sculptures from the Clot collection. Isidro Clot was a renowned Spanish art dealer, who made a contract with Dali to produce a series of bronze subjects. Each piece was cast by Clot, who also ran a bronzing foundry. An example is a sculpture of Carmen, shown dancing, 6.88 inches tall and done circa 1970 (est. $3,500-$5,380).
Prints by Andy Warhol – signed and unsigned – will be sold. One sure to garner attention is a rare, hand-colored original signed print titled Roast Igyuana (sic) Andulusian (est. $30,000-$40,000). The ink and watercolor print, 10 ½ inches by 16 inches, depicts a part of a recipe for iguana, with image and text. A signed print from the same series sold for over $20,000 in 2006.
A pair of signed etchings by Pablo Picasso (Sp//Fr., 1881-1973) should spark an intense bidding war. One, titled Table des Eaux-Fortes (1931), was originally made as an illustration for a book by Balzac. It is numbered, 55/99 (est. $19,000-$23,750). The other is one lot consisting of two original signed drawings, rare because they are from the same book (est. $11,000-$13,750).
The name Lalique is instantly recognizable to connoisseurs of fine glass, and this auction has a great piece. It’s a large crystal bowl in the Luxembourg pattern (est. $6,600-$8,250). The thick, frosted glass walls indulge the viewer with an array of classical cherubic figures swathed in laurels,
