A monumental figural sculpture of dancers by David Wynne, a mixed media on canvas portrait painting by Lita Cabellut, and a post-modern color screenprint portrait of a female by Alex Katz are expected headliners in Ahlers & Ogletree’s two-day, two-session auction planned for October 13th and 14th, online and live in the Atlanta gallery at 1788 Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard.
The Friday, October 13th session is titled Modernism, Art Glass, Folk Art & Jewish Art and contains 428 lots. The Saturday, October 14th session is titled European, American & Asian Art & Antiques and has 473 lots – for 901 lots total. More than thirty lots have been deaccessioned by the Morris Museum in Augusta, Georgia and will be sold to benefit the Museum’s acquisitions fund.
On to Session 2, which will be led by an oil on canvas Possible Self Portrait attributed to Baron Antoine-Jean Gros (French, 1771-1835), depicting a young male painter holding an artist’s pallet and paint brushes on a dark background, apparently unsigned and nicely housed in a gilt frame measuring 27 ¼ inches by 23 inches. The work carries an estimate of $15,000-$25,000.
