DALLAS, TX.- An important single-owner collection of proofs from the estate of John Hutcheson highlights Heritage Auctions' Modern & Contemporary Prints & Multiples Auction Oct. 23 in Dallas. Considered a Master Printer, Hutcheson collaborated with notable artists such as Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler, David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Motherwell and others.

"The top 20th century contemporary artists all turned to John Hutcheson to create their prints," said Kathleen Guzman, Managing Director of Heritage Auctions, New York. "The proofs in his collection show his exceptional gift for experimentation. They are often more highly sought after than the prints from the numbered editions."

Hutcheson was a Master Printer in all of the traditional printing techniques including etching, woodcut, lithography, silkscreen, and papermaking. His long industrious career began in Boston in 1965 and continued until 2003. Over the years he worked at the world's leading print ateliers including Tyler Graphics, Tamarind Institute of Lithography, Petersburg Press, and others. During the 1980s John Hutcheson ran his own workshop in the New York City area and developed personal relationships with hundreds of artists. His prints appear in private and museum collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Tyler Collection Archives in Australia, Japan, Singapore, and Minneapolis.

Highlights from the collection include proofs for Roy Lichtenstein's Reflections on Crash, from Reflection Series, 1990 (est. $120,000-180,000), and Roommates, from Nude Series, 1994, (est. $100,000-150,000); proofs of Robert Motherwell's Three Figures, 1989, (est. $50,000-70,000) and Motherwell's Burning Elegy, 1991; and a monumental proof for James Rosenquist's Where the Water Goes, 1989. The artwork measures an impressive 108 x 63 inches. Hutcheson also worked closely with Frank Stella. The auction features sixteen prints by Stella including a printer's proof on handmade paper for The Candles, 1992 (est. $12,000-18,000).

Selections from the estate of John Hutcheson will appear in session two of Heritage Auctions' Oct. 23 Modern & Contemporary Prints & Multiples Auction in Dallas. Session two will have a stand-alone catalog dedicated to Hutcheson, while session one features property from various owners.

We are so fortunate to have so many important Pop Art works in both sessions of the auction," said Holly Sherratt, Director of Modern & Contemporary Art, San Francisco. "As a California native, I am especially excited about two beautiful Pop Art prints by Bay Area artist Wayne Thiebaud Dark Cake and Lipstick Row, from Seven Still Lifes and a Rabbit ," added Sherratt.

Vying for top price in session one is a portfolio featuring works by Jim Dine, Peter Phillips, James Rosenquist, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Allen Jones, Allan D'Arcangelo, Gerald Laing, John Wesley, Tom Wesselman and Mel Ramos: 11 Pop Artists, Volume II, 1965 (est. $150,000-250,000). Session one also includes several important prints by Andy Warhol such as a screenprint with diamond dust titled Shoes (Deluxe Edition) (est. $40,000-60,000), and a pair of images of Mick Jagger from 1975 that are signed by Warhol and the Rolling Stones singer: Mick Jagger (est. $30,000-50,000) and Mick Jagger (est. $30,000-50,000).
