Auctionata’s Abstract Art of the 20th & 21st Century auction features affordable post-war and contemporary originals, prints, and multiples by well-known artists. The originals include abstract compositions by Wilfried Moser, Hans Platschek, Guido Strazza, Selim Turan and op art founder Victor Vasarely.
Turkish artist Selim Turan took a major role in the avant-garde movement of the Nouvelle École de Paris. The ‘Nouvelle École de Paris’ (Second School of Paris) was a group of painters who dedicated themselves especially to abstract painting after the Second World War until circa 1960. The movement included such famous artists such as Jean Dubuffet, Hans Hartung, Serge Poliakoff and the artists of CoBrA. Numerous works of this movement feature elements of Lyrical Abstraction and Tachism.
Other works that catch our attention is a relief painting by Jürgen Brodwolf, and a monochrome composition by Shirazeh Houshiary. In addition, art lovers can look forward to two small works on paper by Yves Tanguy and Andy Warhol together that create an interesting dialogue.
Graphic highlights include works by Barbara Hepworth, Romare Bearden, Hundertwasser, and Joana Vaconcelos. Carpets after motifs by Rupprecht Geiger and Paul Klee complete the varied range of artworks.
The work by Barbara Hepworth features the typical, abstract work by the sculptor, clearly influenced by her plastic-sculptural work. Born in the Northern English town of Wakefield, Barbara Hepworth studied at the Leeds School of Arts and at the Royal College of Art in London. Her highly abstracted sculptural works show the influence of Hans Arp, Constantin Brancusi and Henry Moore, with whom the artist had been friends since her studies.
