One of a group of 1980s works on paper by Larry Rivers featured in this sale, Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg (Paris Opera) Cover finds Rivers exploring history and narrative within a composition that looks back to his Pop Art period. The depiction of Wagner’s famed 19th Century opera is one of a series of works that Rivers created in the late 1980s in which he explored Jewish culture and history, challenging stereotypes and honoring his Jewish heritage (Lot 65).

A graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, Benny Andrews relocated to New York in 1958, and became an important figure both as an artist as well as an educator, with tenures at the New School, the Jewish Community Center and Queens College. From 1971, Plateau finds Andrews exploring his Surrealist influences, creating an eerily beautiful, lushly colored collage with watercolor and gouache (Lot 3).

A later work by Orville Bulman, Les Nouveaux Familles from 1967 showcases the artist’s influence of the work of Henri Rosseau. While Rosseau’s jungle scenes can often appear imposing, Bulman retains the charming, whimsical and illustrative nature seen in his best works. Living in Point Manalapan near Palm Beach, Bulman drew from his native tropical landscape, while populating his scenes with fantastical tribesmen and exotic animals (Lot 15)

One of Ireland’s great Modernists, Louis Le Brocquy would represent his native country at the Venice Biennale in 1956. Beloved for his famed series of “portrait heads,” Le Brocquy would create images of authors and poets such as William Butler Yeats, Samuel Beckett, and in this study, Ulysses author James Joyce (Lot 42).

Separated into four quadrants, an untitled 1988 work on paper by Contemporary Russian artist Grisha Bruskin showcases the artist’s mysterious figures that reference both Jewish folklore and Soviet-era symbology. Though Bruskin had several of his exhibitions shut down by Soviet authorities in the early 1970s, he has since risen to prominence as one of Russia’s great Contemporary artists; winning the 2012 Kandinsky Prize for his remarkable work (Lot 12).

The Polish/American artist and sculptor Elie Nadelman balanced Cubist compositions with influences drawn from classical sculpture and Folk Art. Nadelman and his wife would build a museum for their personal collection of Folk Art in 1925, which would later become part of the New York Historical Society. Though many of Nadelman’s sculpted forms would depict circus performers and dancers, Head of a Woman is a prime example of his graceful, delicate busts that married an urban Modernism with classical forms (Lot 58).
