Oil painting by Francisco Corzas (Mex., 1936-1983) brings $9,375 at The Woodshed Gallery, March 29th An oil on canvas painting by Mexican artist Francisco Corzas (1936-1983) titled Two Figures sold for $9,375 to take top lot honors in an online-only fine art auction held by The Woodshed Gallery.
Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), like Warhol, needs little introduction. He is regarded as one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century, and co-founder of the Cubist movement. His autograph and drawing on a book page fetched $1,500. Picasso was born in Spain but spent most of his adult life in France. He was a painter, a sculptor, a poet, a playwright and ceramicist.
A paint and ink on cardboard work attributed to Jean-Michel Basquiat (Am., 1960-1988), titled Federal Reserve, signed front and back and consigned through a collection from an antique shop in New Orleans, finished at $1,875. The price would have been much higher had the provenance been stronger. Basquiat, who died from a heroin overdose at age 27, is in great demand today.
A gouache and ink on wove paper attributed to Adolph Gottlieb (Am., 1903-1974), signed in pencil and dated 1967, changed hands for $6,250. Gottlieb was one of the “first generation” of Abstract Expressionists and was accomplished as a painter, draftsman, printmaker and sculptor. Today his artworks are in the collections of more than 140 major museums around the world.
Rodolfo Morales (1925-2001) was a Mexican painter who incorporated elements of magic realism into his work. He’s best known for his brightly colored Surrealistic dream-like canvases and collages, often featuring Mexican women in village settings. His collage made from fabric and other materials in an artist-made tin frame, signed and titled Mujer Corriente, hit $2,250.
The Woodshed Gallery’s next major online-only fine art auction is slated for Wednesday, April 26th. It will feature just 25 premier lots, all by name artists. Already consigned are four drawings attributed to Picasso, from a collector in Chile. That sale might be preceded by a studio paintings and posters sale on Wednesday, April 19th, featuring around 200 lots with starting bids of $100.
