Nearly 200 works are available in our Modern and Contemporary Art Auction on December 9, 2021. We are especially pleased to offer you two sculptures by Ernst Barlach.

The 'Russian Beggar Woman II', ca. 1932 in a bronze version (estimate 30.000 - 35.000 EUR) and the figure 'Russian Beggar Woman with Bowl' made of stoneware is estimated at 5.000 - 6.000 EUR. Barlach discovered the motif of peasants and beggars for his artistic work on a trip to Russia, it marks the breakthrough in his artistic career.

Also noteworthy are the works of Pablo Genovés and Chrystel Lebas: the digigraph 'Juicio Final', 2011 (print 2012) (estimate 8.000 - 10.000 EUR) and the chromo print Untitled (#4) from the series 'Blue Hour', 2005 (estimate 9.000 - 11.000 EUR). In his work titled 'Last Judgment', Genovés invents a gloomy, oppressive image of the deluge destroying our cultural achievements in the form of a baroque church. French photographer Chrystel Lebas portrays the enchanting, tranquil beauty of the forest with a carpet of blossoms, presenting the viewer with a sublime ideal image of nature.

Look forward to more photographs, including works by artists David Drebin, Russell James, Michael Schirner, and Mark Seliger. The latter portrayed Mick Jagger in New York in 1994 (estimated price 1.700 - 2.200 EUR). Another highlight is the series of color etchings 'Faust. La Nuit de Walpurgis', 1968/69 by Salvador Dalí, which we offer for an estimated price of 6.000 - 7.000 EUR. The auction also includes color serigraphs by A. R. Penck such as the small-format 'Hunter', circa 1994 (estimate 1.000 - 1.200 EUR).

Once again we offer porcelain objects from the estate of Walther Stürmer, including Almir Mavignier's partially gilded work 'flach und konvex', 1968 (estimate 1.800 - 2.200 EUR), which was made alongside a usual edition of 50 copies. We also offer ceramic objects by Pablo Picasso, such as the plate 'Hibou Mat'/'Hibou Brilliant', 1955 (design) from an edition of 450 (EDITION PICASSO and MADOURA PLEIN FEU - estimate 6.000 - 8.000 EUR).

Last but not least, Pop Art works by Andy Warhol, Mel Ramos and Robert Indiana will go under the hammer to brighten up the dark season for you. We look forward to your participation in our auction.
