We are delighted to offer a carefully curated selection of 20 works by the iconic artist David Edward Byrd, an acclaimed American graphic artist, designer, illustrator and painter.

 

In early 1968, after being recommended by schoolmate, Josh White of “The Joshua Light Show”, David signed on as the exclusive poster and program designer for legendary The Fillmore East music auditorium. Between 1968 and 1971, he created posters for Jimi Hendrix; The Jefferson Airplane; The Who and their rock opera Tommy; Traffic & Iron Butterfly; Ravi Shankar; and The Grateful Dead.

 

In 1969, David created the graphic for the Woodstock Music Festival and the equally legendary Rolling Stones 1969 November Tour. From 1991 to 2002, David was Senior Illustrator at Warner Brothers Creative Services, creating illustrations, backgrounds and style guides for all the Looney Tunes and Hanna–Barbera characters--and played a major role in the merchandising of those popular items. In the fall of 2012, Pratt Institute in NYC, celebrating its 125th anniversary, chose David as one of its 125 Art Icons of the Last 125 Years, with David representing the year 1968.

 

David's graphic work is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, NYC; The Museum of Rock, Cleveland; The Victoria & Albert, London; The Walker Institute, Minneapolis; and Le Musée des Arts Decoratif at The Louvre, Paris. And we are thrilled to offer his work to you.

“It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness.”

--Paul Strand

“Photography has the capacity to provide images of man and his environment that are both works of art and moments in history.”

--Cornell Capa


BNO is honored to present the iconic photography of George Hurrell, featuring 24 archival prints from the creator of the Hollywood glamour portrait. Before Hurrell’s arrival, movie star portraits were “soft focus” and undistinguished, derivative of the Main Street USA portrait salon. The maverick artist instituted a sharp, dramatic look and captured movie stars of the most exalted era in Hollywood history with bold contrast and seductive poses.


From 1929 to 1992, Hurrell was the “Rembrandt of Hollywood,” creating iconic portraits of show business celebrities. His photos of Jane Russell sulking in a haystack made the unknown girl a star—without a film credit to her name.


The images offered here are printed directly from Hurrell’s original negatives and are silver gelatin prints; processed, washed, and dried in accordance with archival standards established by the Eastman Kodak Corporation. These images were all produced by master printer Mark A. Vieira, America’s foremost expert on Hollywood glamour photography. If mounted and framed with acid-free materials, they will last a minimum of one hundred years. 


Vieira has spent forty years collecting vintage prints, interviewing the artists, and printing original negatives under their supervision. He preserves this tradition in his own work. He is the only photographer in this country who makes glamour portraits in the classic Hollywood mode; he uses large format camera, incandescent lights, and full negative retouching. Vieira executes his portraits in George Hurrell’s original studio in the historic Granada Buildings, using Hurrell’s own Verito lens and camera.

“Many think that Cubism is an art of transition, an experiment which is to bring ulterior results. Those who think that way have not understood it. Cubism is not either a seed or a fetus, but an art dealing primarily with forms, and when a form is realized, it is there to live its own life. A mineral substance, having geometric formation, is not made so for transitory purposes, it is to remain what it is and will always have its own form.”

― Pablo Picasso

“Man screams from the depths of his soul; the whole era becomes a single, piercing shriek. Art also screams, into the deep darkness, screams for help, screams for the spirit. This is Expressionism.”

― Hermann Bahr


 

20th Century Art is so extensive and all-encompassing that studying, appreciating, and collecting it could very well take several lifetimes. Among the movements associated with it are Fauvism, Expressionism, Abstract, Cubism, Futurism, Dadaism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Post-Modernism, Photorealism, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and Pop Art.

 

In this auction, we focus on two of those movements—Cubism and Expressionism—as exemplified by four of the 20th Century’s artistic giants:  Tamara de Lempicka, Pablo Picasso, Egon Schiele, and Fernand Leger.

 

Pablo Picasso is a Spanish painter who is widely acknowledged to be the most important artist of the 20th century. He experimented with a wide range of styles and themes in his long career, most notably inspiring Cubism. Exceptionally prolific throughout the course of his long life, Picasso achieved universal renown and immense fortune for his revolutionary artistic accomplishments.

 

Tamara de Lempicka was fascinated by Cubism and its statement that it was time for a completely new artistic dynamic. Through her soft edges and unapologetic sensual images, her paintings seduced and enraptured viewers. Numerous celebrities including Madonna, Barbra Streisand, and Jack Nicholson are collectors of Lempicka’s works.  Her artworks now sell for millions at auction and are in museum collections throughout the world.

 

One of Austria's most important artists, Expressionist painter Egon Schiele is famous for his depictions of erotic and sexually explicit female nudes. His works were considered scandalous and immoral in their day. Now considered one of Europe's greatest and most daring artists, his beautifully rendered erotic works attract higher and higher prices globally as the years pass and can now be seen in the most prominent museums and collections around the world. Schiele was second only to Gustav Klimt as the leading exponent of Austrian Expressionism in fine-art.

 

Fernand Léger was a French painter, sculptor, and filmmaker. In his early works, he created a personal form of Cubism which he gradually modified into a more figurative, populist style. His boldly simplified treatment of modern subject matter has caused him to be regarded as a forerunner of Pop Art.

 

Although these four painters are indeed giants of the 20th Century art world, their works are especially valued and celebrated for their life-affirming humanity.

Caroline Vis is an exciting, self-taught Abstract Impressionist painter who grew up in the Netherlands. Her works have been exhibited in galleries and auction houses throughout Europe and the United States. Her works and style have been compared to that of Jackson Pollock.

Caroline had a pleasant childhood until the age of 11, when her father left the family. An alcoholic, abusive stepfather took his place. Because of all the sadness, abuse and pain she was confronted with in her late childhood, Caroline started to paint in the middle of the night. “I used paint to put aside the pain and sadness to reach some happiness, and I did succeed.”

She painted for years without having any idea of a future as an artist, simply using art as an outlet for her emotions.

For the past few years, she has exhibited her work in galleries and auction houses throughout Europe and the United States. As Caroline states:  “For me, art is like breathing. It makes me feel very serene. It makes me feel alive! It gives me the feeling that I can live my life to the fullest.”
