Art Fair Season

Madison Avenue drawings dealer Tunick brings a historically important early Picasso print to the Park Avenue Armory. In 1904, the Spanish master returned to Paris after being forced to leave a year earlier because of a lack of funds. His first venture into the print medium, Le Repas Frugal depicts the artist’s own impoverished state, and the gritty, urban life of the artists and poets who neighbored him on the Rue Ravignan in Montmartre. The work is priced “in the six figures.” Other featured artists will include Rembrandt, Warhol and Munch, whose Madonna is priced “in the seven figures.”

Richard Artschwager has two recent works featured by the David Nolan Gallery; they’re painted in pastel on paper, and move away from his usual architectural style. Instead, they reflect his experience living in Las Cruces, New Mexico during his childhood.

As a husband-and-wife team, French artists Francois-Xavier and Claude Lalanne blur the lines between fine and decorative art. Sensuous and somewhat bizarre, their sculptures combine botanical and animal. This bronze piece, from an edition of 100, is 4 1/2-inches square. Another artist being shown by the Paul Kasmin Gallery is William N. Copley.

Ten of Andy Warhol’s iconic Campbell's Soup screenprints, each signed, stamped and measuring 35 inches by 23 inches, will be featured by Richard L. Feigen & Co. Within the artist’s oeuvre, the soup cans were partly responsible for catapulting him from being a commercial illustrator, to a celebrated Pop artist. The set will be selling for $385,000.

A passionate cult of collectors and artists remembers San Francisco pioneer Bruce Conner. He emerged from the city’s Beat era of the 1950s and became well-known as both an artist and filmmaker. By the time of his death in 2008, Conner had established a reputation as a master of montage. This $375,000 assemblage includes paper collage, a wood broom handle, a metal spring, an electric light socket, twine and other materials. The gallery will also be highlighting a $350,000 Wallace Berman collage.

Another highlight of Richard Feigen’s ADAA exhibition will be Frank Stella’s polychromed cast steel sculpture, priced at $185,000. A minimalist painter, printmaker, sculptor and architect, Stella's painting was influenced by Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns and Franz Kline. His five-decade career has more recently moved towards monumental sculpture and metalworks.

Following in its tradition of exhibiting a single artist at its ADAA Art Show booth, The Pace Gallery will feature Chinese painter Zhang Huan’s ash paintings. His normally monumental works involve a painstaking process, which includes gathering ashes from Buddhist temples in Shanghai, sorting them according to their color and texture, and applying them to linen. The pictures are based on photographs from the Chinese Cultural Revolution. Zhang has grounded his technique in the belief that ceremonial ashes contain “all the dreams, aspirations, all the spiritual longings, all the ideas that people have.” All works presented by Pace are small-scale, and priced under $100,000. This one is 23 5/8 inches by 31 1/2 inches.

Mitchell-Innes & Nash will be making a solo presentation of Jessica Stockholder’s assemblage sculptures. The exhibition will include installations on the wall and floor of the booth space, as wall as a group of new sculptures and a chandelier. The artist combines brightly-colored paint, consumer objects, household goods, furniture, and other items in her exploration of color, texture and space. Her work is considered integral to the growing dialogue between sculpture and painting.

Sperone Westwater’s gallerists will head uptown from their huge new Bowery space to show ZERO Group at the fair: Heinz Mack, Otto Piene, Günther Uecker, will bring optical illusion to the ADAA Art Fair. Eucker’s Kleine Wolke is a simple composition of nails and oil on canvas, mounted on wood. Yet it encapsulates his study of light effects, oscillation and visual phenomena. These three Düsseldorfer artists were founders of the ZERO movement in Germany, which opposed the geometric abstraction of the German Informel.

Hans P. Kraus Jr. Fine Photographs will present From Lace to Lamppost: The Object as Subject in 19th Century Photographs, featuring artists such as William Henry Fox Talbot, Anna Atkins, John B. Greene, and Charles Marville. This photograph by Marville is an albumen print from a collodion negative, measuring 35.8 x 25.3 cm. Although it was taken in the early days of the medium, “Candélabre du canal St. Martin” seems somewhat modern, with the Parisian streetlamp captured in great detail against the stark sky. The work is priced at $50,000. Other notable pieces will include John Beasly Greene’s Still life with Glass, Flask and Bottle, priced at $110,000.
