Showcased will be a wide range of affordable paintings, prints and sculpture spanning the Post-War years to the present day by established and emerging artists. Exciting opportunities abound in this popular category for seasoned buyers and new collectors alike!

Andy Warhol 
Andy Warhol's New York City studio brought together celebrities, artists and other creatives. In 1977, Warhol met printer Rupert Jasen Smith who collaborated with him to create the Space Fruit series. For this series, Warhol placed pieces of fruit on a white background, lit the arrangement then photographed the compositions to produce stark shadows. Warhol then used collage and drawing to create the source imagery for additional screens. The resulting artwork is an example of multilayer silkscreen printing, which provided numerous color combinations within each composition (est. $12,000-18,000). 
Alexander Calder
Alexander Calder rose to prominence in the 1920s and 30s. The artist often pulled from his mechanical engineering background to create abstract, geometric forms. The color lithograph Le Turban showcases Calder's use of forms in motion as well as his interest in primary and secondary colors (est. $8,000-12,000). 

John Heliker
In 1927, Heliker began studying with the Art Students League in New York City. Here Heliker developed his painterly, yet structural aesthetic. In the 1930s, Heliker started teaching art at Columbia University where he continued to teach for twenty-seven years. Towards the end of his career, his style became looser with larger strokes and slight abstraction, as seen in Red Interior. Heliker predominantly painted landscapes, still lifes, and portraits, choosing traditional subjects for his semi-abstract compositions (est. $5,000-7,000).

Claude Venard
Known for his distinctive angular style, Claude Venard was a French post-Cubist painter in the mid-20th century. At the beginning of his career, he worked with the Forces Nouvelles who wanted to return to a strict and traditional form of painting. However, he would eventually leave the group to cultivate his own style. In Bathers, Venard utilized a wide range of colors, laying the pigment down thickly with a palette knife (est. $5,000-7,000).

Henry Lawrence Faulkner
A Kentucky-born artist, Faulkner first started exhibiting his paintings around the 1950s. His style draws from both the Surrealist and Colorist movements and he took inspiration from around the world, as well as in his native Kentucky. His subject matter varied from still lifes and landscapes to image collages and animals. The painting Palace Gardens showcases Faulkner’s use of bright colors throughout the scene with quick dashes of light-colored linework and detailing on top (est. $4,000-6,000).
Rufino Tamayo 
Inspired by surrealism and drawing from his Zapotec heritage, Rufino Tamayo worked as a painter, sculptor and printmaker. in the mid-20th century. Tamayo began his art career as a student in 1917, where he was influenced by popular art movements such as Fauvism, Cubism, and Impressionism. Though these influences are evident in his work, Tamayo's Mexican identity also shines through. He was known to use color carefully, believing that too much color could distract from the focus and meaning of a piece. The color lithograph Dos Caras draws upon Tamayo’s use of geometric shapes, distinct use of color and Mexican heritage (est. $4,000-6,000).

Roger Mühl
Born in France in 1929, Mühl is best known for his landscapes of the south of France. While living in France for most of his life, he traveled around the world exhibiting his work in London, New York, Tokyo, and other major cities. Les Cypres is a typical example of his work. Featuring a light drenched scene, the painting shows his use of complementary colors and soft neutral tones. Mühl often built up his canvases with impasto surfaces while retaining traditional subjects and simple compositions (est. $3,000-5,000).

Bela de Kristo
Born in Hungary, Bela de Kristo moved to Paris in the 1940s, organizing a Hungarian exhibition in 1947. In 1954 de Kristo opened a workshop that became a creative hub for the press, painters, and others in the art world. Bela de Kristo’s work varies throughout his career. He worked with cartoons, stage sets, photomontages, and more, as well as paintings. As a Cubist painter, de Kristo harmonized shade and tones to portray a softened version of the world. In Le manége, de Kristo’s naive subject invites the viewer to consider surface-level beauty along with subjective depth (est. $3,000-5,000).
Francis Speight
Francis Speight became well-known in the 1920s for landscapes depicting rural and suburban Pennsylvania. A contemporary realist, Speight's paintings were representational of his surroundings. Speight often played with light and atmosphere to depict a specific mood for his work. The painting Evolution portrays Speight's Impressionistic style and his signature use of color and light (est. $2,000-$4,000). 
Renato Meziat
Born in Brazil in 1952, Renato Meziat is a self-taught painter of landscapes and still-lifes. Meziat’s paintings are well known for their draped fabrics and color palette derived from his homeland. Jo'queu Clube, 1999, depicts the beautiful blue mountains and sky of Brazil, which is often seen in Meziat’s work (est. $1,500-2,500).
