Pierre Bonnard signed lithograph "La Passante" (lot #2ba)
This lithograph of Pierre Bonnard's 1894 piece, "La Passante," would make an excellent addition to any art lover's collection. This image was produced during the same period in which Bonnard gained fame for crafting a series of images centered on conveying the majesty and energy of the streets of Paris. Most impressively, this lithograph bears Pierre Bonnard's signature and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Framing for this lithograph is also available at extra cost to the highest bidder.
Aubrey Beardsley one-of-a-kind lithograph (lot #2eb)
This piece may be of particular interest to collectors of rare art due to the controversial reception of its creator. Aubrey Beardsley was a very divisive individual in the artistic community, re-shaping the Art Nouveau period through use of grotesque images, which were often seen as odd takes on eroticism. Many of his drawings, including this one, featured characters with grossly exaggerated genitalia. More often than not, these images were done in black and white against a plain white background. The vast majority of Beardsley's work was produced across a six-year period in the late nineteenth century until his premature death of tuberculosis on March 16, 1898. Beardsley was only 25 years old at the time of his death.
Henri Matisse lithograph circa 1914 (lot #5hm)
This lithograph of the Henri Matisse piece entitled "Fruits Et Fuillages" is an extremely rare piece and would make a distinguished addition to any collection. Matisse began his career in 1889 during a period of convalescence from appendicitis. His mother had brought him art supplies during his recovery, otherwise he may never have started his illustrious career. This lithograph from 1914 is sure to draw the eye of an serious collector.
