Outstanding collections and artworks will be featured including important works by Joan Mitchell, Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Alexander Calder, and others. Mitchell’s extraordinary Untitled, 1989 (lot 32) will headline the three sales and will be offered at $500,000-700,000. Untitled, 1989 is from a Private Collection (Atlanta, Georgia) and was purchased from Cheim & Read in New York in 2012.

The sales showcase Property from the Collection of Noel and Kathryn Dickinson Wadsworth (Atlanta, Georgia), the Collection of Ginny L. Williams (Denver, Colorado), the Estate of Avis Hope Truska (Scottsdale, Arizona), the Miriam B. Swanson Trust (Chicago, Illinois), the Michael Hall Collection (Miami Beach, Florida), the Collection of Ms. Mavis Staples (Chicago, Illinois), and from a Private Collection (Taos, New Mexico).

The auctions also include Property from the Collection of Dr. Mark List Cohen and Jane Cohen (Atlanta, Georgia), The Western Union Company, the Estate of Leslie “Mitzi” S. Magin (Naples, Florida), the Estate of Sandra Lee Vosburgh (Atlanta, Georgia), and from the George M. Irwin Trust (Quincy, Illinois).

American and European Art | May 3 at 10am CT

The American and European Art auction will offer more than 130 lots of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper from the 19th and 20th centuries with a notable selection of Impressionist landscapes, and Modernist and Ashcan works.

Outstanding works include Léonard Tsuguharu Foujita’s Les Deux Amies (lot 72; estimate: $150,000-$250,000). Noteworthy Pennsylvania Impressionist works include Edward Willis Redfield’s The Peaceful Stream in Winter (lot 51; estimate: $80,000-120,000), Daniel Garber’s Near Solebury (lot 50; estimate: $70,000-90,000), and George William Sotter’s Winter Night (lot 52; estimate: $50,000-70,000). William Glackens’ Girl with Violin (lot 37; estimate: $70,000-90,000) and Everett Shinn’s Cherry Lane Theater (lot 33; estimate: $50,000-70,000) are examples of significant Ashcan works.

Post War and Contemporary Art | May 4 at 10am CT

The Post War and Contemporary Art auction will feature more than 80 works spotlighting abstract expressionism, the Hairy Who and the Chicago Imagists, and conceptual art and minimalism. Joan Mitchell’s Untitled, 1989 (lot 32; estimate: $500,000-700,000), an outstanding example of the artist’s shift towards lush and transcendent painting late in her career, will lead the auction. Untitled, 1989 features vast created compositional space, which makes the work seem more vibrant than its size, 24 by 19 ¾ inches, might suggest. Through broadly applied blue and shadowy streaks of black and billows of white, the painting moves the gaze to landscape-like references that can be interpreted as the edge of a body of water in the lower right foreground and a pale green shore or horizon in the distant upper left.

Alexander Calder’s Pyramidal Shapes (lot 35; estimate: $200,000-300,000) and Jim Nutt’s Did you Hear Something? (lot 51; estimate: $100,000-150,000) are other noteworthy works. Other highlights include Magdalena Abakanowicz’s Figure with Open Arms (lot 47; estimate: $40,000-60,000) and Bernard Frize’s Rimano (lot 6; $30,000-50,000).

Prints and Multiples | May 5 at 10am CT

The Prints and Multiples auction will present over 180 artworks with a broad selection of works from old master through contemporary prints, photography, and Picasso ceramics. The auction begins with a notably strong session of Pop Art from Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein with other impressive artworks in the contemporary session by Wayne Thiebaud, Ed Ruscha, and Ellsworth Kelly. The photography session includes works by Berenice Abbott, Ansel Adams, and Marilyn Minter.

Andy Warhol’s Four Polo Players from 1985 (lot 21; estimate: $60,000-80,000) and two Mao portraits from 1972 (lots 19 and 20; estimates are $30,000-50,000) are particularly significant works. Other highlights include Robert Indiana’s complete Numbers Portfolio (lot 2; estimate: $40,000-60,000), Cy Twombly’s Natural History Part II: Some Trees of Italy (lot 42; estimate: $30,000-50,000), Wayne Thiebaud’s Dark Cake (lot 14; estimate: $20,000-30,000), and Frank Stella’s complete Aluminum Series (lot 41; estimate: $20,000-30,000).
