Gary Nader Announces Latin American, Modern and Contemporary Art Auction for December 1st

Gary Nader announces his next Latin American, Modern and Contemporary Art Auction. The Auction artworks will be on display from Thursday, November 17th, 2011. The Auction will take place on Thursday, December 1st, 2011 during the celebration of Art Basel Miami Beach 2011. Full color printed and online catalogues will be available. Gary Nader is requesting artworks by some of the most important Latin American, Modern and Contemporary artists for inclusion in the auciton.

Highlights of artworks already on consignment include Roy Lichtenstein’s iconic large scale aluminum painted sculpture “Three Brushstrokes”, executed in 1984, estimated at $3,000,000 to $5,000,000. “Three Brushstrokes” is a classic image by a world class artist; it’s a fluid and energetic representation of three brushstrokes of primary colors, red, yellow and blue coming together as a frozen gesture. “Three Brushstrokes” evokes the movement and color of paint on canvas but in a dynamic new medium. Key contemporary British highlight include a canvas by Damien Hirst “Tixylix” executed in 1998, estimated at $700,000 to $900,000. This work in particular belongs to his well-known Spot Paintings, an arrangement of color spots with a title that refer to a pharmaceutical chemical; it is another example of Hirst’s ironic wit, and questions art’s role in contemporary culture. The auction will also offer major works by German painter Martin Kippenberger, “Untitled”, 1981, oil on canvas, estimated at $300,000 – $400,000 and Albert Oehlen’s “Sir Henry”, 1995, oil on printed fabric, estimated at $ 400,000 – $600,000.

From Latin America the auction will offer a suite of outstanding artworks by Cuban master Wifredo Lam. A distinctive Lam oil on paper “Untitled” from 1942, estimated at $500,000 to $700,000 is one of the lots that will bring his approach to the inheritances from the Surrealist and Cubist movements, building a distinguishing and transcendental iconic presence in the history of modern art. Another leading highlight of the auction is the selection of works (paintings and sculpture) from Colombian master Fernando Botero, particularly a “Self-Portrait”, oil on canvas from 1994, estimated at $500,000 – $600,000 where the artist graciously portrayed himself getting a haircut by making use of the humor, humanity and exaggerated proportions that characterized his peculiar iconic style.
