Swann Galleries’ November 17 auction of American Art & Contemporary Art offers outstanding unique works and prints by choice American artists and those working in the late 20th century. Highlights are:
Some highly desirable prints by Andy Warhol, including his 1967 color screenprint of Marilyn Monroe, his earliest print of the blonde icon, who is depicted in shades of gray and black.
Other pop art highlights, including Keith Haring’s Art Attack on AIDS, unique screenprint in black with hand coloring in yellow gouache, 1988.
Tom Wesselmann’s Monica Sitting with Mondrian, color screenprint, 1989.
There is a selection of fine color lithographs by Alexander Calder as well as a 1971 gouache, At Last a Yellow Saucer, which reflects much of the playfulness and color of his well-known mobiles.
Prominent portfolios, including Robert Indiana’s Decade, with 10 color screenprints, 1971.
