Ernie Barnes and Fred Eversley headline Post-War & Contemporary Art Auction at Hindman
Fred Eversley, Untitled (parabolic lens), 1976 Estimate: $150,000 - $250,000.

CHICAGO, IL.- Hindman will offer a compelling selection of contemporary American art in its September 28th auction, highlighted by distinguished names who have recently taken the art world by storm. Among the dynamic offering in this month’s Post-War & Contemporary Art auction, works by Ernie Barnes, Fred Eversley and Nathaniel Mary Quinn are those expected to see the most passionate bidding competition. While the artworks themselves can all be considered master works, the stories behind them are equally as compelling.

A strong selection of large-scale abstract paintings by Giorgio Cavallon, Gene Davis, Ron Davis, Friedel Dzubas, Suzan Frecon and Paul Jenkins will be featured in a session of nonobjective works. Legendary Chicago Imagists will also be on the roster, with paintings by Roger Brown and Ray Yoshida. Works by Leon Golub, Arnulf Rainer, Andy Warhol and John Wilde will round out the sale.

Ernie Barnes’s Baseball Snapshot

Ernie Barnes’ Untitled (The Stare) (lot 50; estimate: $80,000 - $120,000) is a quintessential example of the artist’s work, and a glimpse at why Barnes has shined at auction this year. While only recently skyrocketing to international recognition, Barnes’ reputation as a multi-talented artist who drew inspiration from numerous areas of life – sports, performing arts and church to name just a few – has always set him apart. From the dance floor to the pew, or in this case, the ballfield, Barnes’ compelling snapshots of everyday life never fail to win over fans.

Nathaniel Mary Quinn’s Powerful Portrait

Nathaniel Mary Quinn has grabbed the attention of the art world with his multifaceted contorted portraiture that often draws inspiration from his personal experience growing up in Chicago, blurring the edges of the beautiful and the unsettling. A rare, untitled early portrait by Quinn of his mother and middle namesake from 2000 (lot 51; estimate: $60,000-80,000), is expected to draw attention. Raised in the Robert Taylor Homes housing projects on Chicago’s South Side, Quinn’s desolate upbringing around drugs, poverty and crime was tempered by the strength exhibited by his mother, a figure who has influenced much of his oeuvre. Harnessing the power of memory and loss, this painting captures a foundational moment in Quinn’s life through his unique brand of figuration.

Fred Eversley’s Scientific Sculpture

Celebrated sculptor Fred Eversley’s groundbreaking works are situated at the intersection of art and technology. Untitled (parabolic lens), 1976 (lot 24; estimate: $150,000-250,000) is exemplary of this combination of forms and offers viewers an otherworldly experience. The work showcases a triumph of artistic and scientific achievement through the shrinking of a solar system.

Eversley is known as a keen advocate when it comes to the energy crisis, and this work is a prime example of his engagement with the issue. Eversley’s unique application of scientific principles to produce a humanistic connection are what distinguish his sculptures.

Large-Scale Abstract Painting from Gene Davis, Friedel Dzubas, Paul Jenkins

Large-scale abstract paintings will also be among sale highlights. Notable works to be presented are Friedel Dzubas’ Aglaura (lot 15; estimate: $50,000 - $70,000) and Gene Davis’ Crazy Horse, 1979 (lot 1; estimate: $30,000-50,000). An incredibly innovative artist, Davis described his approach to his painted compositions as ‘playing by eye.’ Through a staccato-like application of his signature vertical bands of color, the present work dances to the beat of its own drum. Suzan Frecon’s Dark and Light (with homage to Manet) (lot 42; estimate: $60,000 - $80,000) and Paul Jenkins’ Phenomena Self Portrait Veil (lot 16; estimate: $30,000 - $50,000) are additional noteworthy paintings.
