Le Corbusier & Charlotte Perriand

UNITÉ D’HABITATION APARTMENT COMPLEX MARSEILLE, FRANCE / JULY 2015

15 LE CORBUSIER & CHARLOTTE PERRIAND

Kitchen cabinet from Unité d’Habitation, Marseille Atelier, designed c. 1952 Another example of this design was exhibited in “Designing Modern Women, 1890-1990,” Museum of Modern Art, New York, October 5, 2013-October 19, 2014 45.5" x 91.75" x 17" LITERATURE Le Corbusier: Unité D’habitation in Marseille and the Four Other Unité Blocks in Rezé-les-Nantes. J. Sbriglio. 2004. 79-80.

$20,000–30,000

The Unité d’Habitation apartment complex in Marseille, France is a Le Corbusier (1887—1965) architectural masterwork and regarded as one of the most influential modernist structures ever built. Completed in 1952, the Unité d’Habitation, French for “Housing Unit,” realizes his vision of a “vertical garden city” in which residents live, shop, play, and interact as a community. In its 63 years of existence, the 12-story concrete tower with 337 apartments has proven to be as popular with tenants as with historians—not least for its airy duplex units with intelligent built-in furnishings. The kitchens, a particular success, were devised by architect and furniture designer Charlotte Perriand (1903—1999). She was a longtime collaborator of Le Corbusier, and the principal spirit behind such famed seating pieces as the Grand Confort armchair and the B306 Chaise Longue. (Perhaps it is not altogether surprising that Le Corbusier tasked Perriand with the kitchen plan. A confirmed male chauvinist, the architect first sent Perriand away when she applied for employment in 1927, telling

her: “We don’t embroider cushions here.”) For the project, Perriand designed sleek, efficient shelving and cupboards, with panels painted in bright primary colors (which were possibly influenced by the work of her friend, the artist Fernand Léger). Here she explored the simple and elegant forms she would use later in her 1950s work with artisan, designer, and engineer Jean Prouvé, such as the bookcases and other furnishings for the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris. In 2009 the Museum of Modern Art in New York purchased an entire kitchen from the Unité d’Habitation for its permanent collection. Though originally wall-mounted, the unit in the present lot has been modified slightly with the addition of legs to be used as a standing cabinet. “Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret), Pierre Jeanneret Revolving Armchair 1928.” MoMA.

Alfredo Ramos Martinez The painter and muralist Alfredo Ramos Martinez (1871—1946) was a prominent and influential figure in the early 20th century in both his native Mexico and his adopted home of Los Angeles. Following the Mexican Revolution, Ramos Martinez brought a fresh, modernizing spirit to the moribund art scene of his homeland, helping to foster the rich artistic awakening led by Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siqueiros. As demonstrated by the 2014 exhibition Picturing Mexico: Alfredo Ramos Martinez in California held at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, his work manifests a moving and vivid expression of the Latino experience of the United States. In Mexico he was respected as an artist and educator. Following his formal studies, Ramos Martinez spent nine years in Paris, where he moved in the same circles as Picasso, Monet, and Matisse. He returned home in 1910, and was named director of Mexico City’s National School of Fine Arts in 1913. As director, he dismantled the school’s doctrinaire academism by initiating a new program for teaching painting en plein air—outdoors, in the countryside—a method, loved by the Postimpressionists, he had enjoyed in France. Siqueiros, his student, would forever credit Ramos Martinez for providing the spark of vitality that kindled Mexican modernismo. Ramos Martinez moved to Los Angeles with his family in 1929, largely to find medical treatment and a healthier climate for his young daughter, who suffered from a congenital bone disease. In Los Angeles, Ramos Martinez was helped by friends and patrons such as the painter Millard Sheets and William

Alanson Bryan, director of the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art (which became the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art), who gave the artist his first show in the city. During this time, Ramos Martinez developed a new artistic style—Gaugin-esque, with an angular, bold-edged Art Deco inflection. On canvas, paper, and murals, he offers an immigrant’s view of Mexico-wistful, romantic, and at times, pained. Ramos Martinez succumbed to heart failure in 1946 when he was nearing completion of a mural (still extant) at Scripps College in Claremont. Floripondios—the word translates as “large flowers”—are a recurring motif in Ramos Martinez’s work. Known to English-speaking horticulturalists as “Angel’s Trumpets,” the flowers had a clear spiritual significance to a devout Catholic such as the artist. Moreover, the blossoms serve as a potent symbol of Mexican life and society. Floripondios and the six other species of the genus Brugmansia are native to tropical South America. They are deeply significant to indigenous cultures–used, variably, to make native medicines or a hallucinogen for shamanistic rituals, to induce visionary states of consciousness. Floripondios, will be included in the upcoming catalogue raisonné of works on paper, to be published by the Alfredo Ramos Martinez Research Project.

Julie Ann by Robert Graham California sculptor Robert Graham (1938—2008) loved women. For four decades Graham contributed to the great tradition of Western art—the female nude. But his approach was contemporary; he melded realism with expressive force in sculptures of women that are intimate and immediate. They are powerful and muscular, not romanticized or generalized, but naturalistic. According to artist Tony Berlant “if you look at them, you see individual personalities, I think. They are portraits . . .” He portrayed many women throughout his career, with the sculptures taking the name of his real-life models. Here Julie Ann (1993) stands upright and resolute atop a graceful base. The directness of her posture, position, and stare is slightly tempered by the casual pose in which she embraces one arm across her body. Characteristically, Graham shows his models’ personalities, incorporating a sense of their movement and choreography. Julie Ann was individually cast and has a unique patina.

Dan Johnson While other postwar California furniture designers explored futuristic paraboloid forms and free-form biomorphic shapes, Dan Johnson (1918—1979) looked back to Roman antiquity to find inspiration for his signature furniture pieces. Born in Missouri, Johnson studied at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena (with a brief spell as an engineering student at the University of Cincinnati). Beginning in the late 1940s, he designed for the Alhambra, California furniture maker Hayden Hall, producing attractive chairs and case pieces in smooth-edged angular plywood. Several of these were shown in Arts and Architecture magazine’s feature on architect Rodney Walker’s Case Study House #17. In the mid-1950s, he moved to Rome and opened Dan Johnson Studio, designing furnishings that, as he later wrote to a friend, took “a modern approach to the ancient

Roman stuff I appreciated so much.” The pieces are marked by their elegant sculptural quality. The forms of Johnson’s best-known works—his lithe, graceful Gazelle chairs and tables—were likely suggested by the animals depicted in early CE Roman hunting scene mosaics. The rare Satyr line of tables was inspired by images of the Greco-Roman mythological figure: part-man, part-horse, with a notably long tail, and in many renderings, equine legs and hooves. (Johnson took the further liberty of giving his satyrs a pair of tiny wings.) Both the Gazelle and the Satyr lines were made in wood, anodized aluminum, and patinated cast bronze. The 1956 Dan Johnson Studio catalogue offers three- and four-leg Satyr side tables. However, this lot is the only known example of a Satyr dining table. Tigerman, Bobbye, ed.

Interview: Joe Goode Artist Joe Goode (b. 1937) has been living in Los Angeles for over 55 years and his work has been exhibited internationally since before the very genesis of terms like “contemporary art” or “Pop Art.” His work was included in Walter Hopps’ groundbreaking show “New Paintings of Common Objects” at the Pasadena Museum of Art in 1962 alongside Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jim Dine. Artists as varied as Vija Celmins, Ed Ruscha, and Alex Israel have cited Joe Goode as an important influence on their work. His paintings are in the permanent collections of many major museums such as the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Recently, the artist sat down with Peter Loughrey, Director of Los Angeles Modern Auctions, to talk about his career and Glass and Spoon (Tickled Pink) (1966—1967), which is being offered at auction for the first time in almost a half a century. Peter Loughrey: What were your biggest influences from local artists? Joe Goode: Probably Ed Ruscha because he and I grew up together. We’ve always been exposed to essentially the same things. When you grow up with somebody from when you’re seven years old, and you both turn out to be artists, it’s pretty rare. PL: Which of your instructors at Chouinard Art Institute gave you the most encouragement as an artist? JG: Well, the one that hands down influenced me the most and also gave me the most encouragement was Bob Irwin. He was the one who said, “You don’t need to be here anymore.” And I just thought “Oh! Amen!” PL: There has been a lot written about your works having ‘a detached austerity’ or ‘a placeless, colored background.’ But

I’ve always seen a connection to light and space and what is out here in Los Angeles. JG: Yeah, well, I think we can lay that on some people like John Coplans [writer, curator, and Artforum Editor-in-Chief from 1972—1977] who said one time “these are the loneliest paintings I ever saw” or something like that [laughs]. I guess what you see is what you get. I never thought of them that way. I definitely saw them as still lifes on a white tablecloth. And when I showed this one in England, they thought I was making “fun” of English still lifes! When in actual fact I was paying homage to them because I always respected [them], particularly English paintings. I went to London five or six times in the 60’s to be there and stay with friends there. To be making fun of it there wouldn’t make sense at all. PL: So, Glass and Spoon (Tickled Pink) was actually painted in London. Did the location make a difference to the subject matter? JG: From a significance point of view, I don’t think so. But I find in hindsight that, yeah, it’s different. It would never have been that way [in Los Angeles] and in this case, you can see that the shape of the glass and the shape of the spoon is typically a London shape. In London, that was the glass they put wine in. The color of London was not really what I was dealing with in these paintings. I was thinking of [the background color] in terms of a tablecloth. I wasn’t rationalizing it like I am now, I was just painting a tablecloth. PL: Your work is often described as “Pop” and your work was included in the first American retrospective Pop Art exhibition in 1962. But I’ve never thought of your work as “Pop.” JG: It always of course looks different in hindsight. But at that time I was working and I didn’t care what they labeled me as long as they showed it. At that time this place was really young and there was very little opportunity to get exposure

and sell things. No artist was in a position to say anything [to the contrary] when something like that opportunity came up. I just looked at it as [the curator’s] opinion. At that particular time in America, everyone was saying that this scene was a new art. But at the time I was thinking “I don’t see anything so new about what I’m doing.” I didn’t feel it was. I definitely didn’t feel it was “Pop.” PL: You were certainly painting common objects around you and in front of you. JG: [Yes, but] I always said from the very beginning, if there was an artist that I related to, it was [Giorgio] Morandi. PL: The West Coast was certainly a kind of outpost of the art world. How did Artforum or trips to New York and London help inform your work? JG: After I had already started [having success] doing Milk Bottle paintings and House paintings, I just wondered where, if at all, was anyplace I fit in. So, after a time, travelling helped a lot. I was curious to see what was going on in New York, London, and Paris. PL: Does your work contain any messages about society or are they purely about visual language? JG: No, I don’t think so—not consciously anyway. I select images or a series that I want to work on based on something that you can see through. It’s always been that way, whether it’s a glass and spoon where it’s reflective, or a window, milk bottle, whatever. When I was young I had a daughter, a baby, and I’d come home from Chouinard at night and the milk bottles would be sitting on the steps, and basically that’s where I got the idea to paint them; just what was around me. But it’s been for the most part totally unconscious. I’ve always worked in a kind of series. From Milk Bottle paintings to [today’s work] and, I’ve only realized this later, it always seemed like I was looking from here [Los Angeles] and looking out out out out out.


“…it always seemed like I was looking from here and looking out out out out out.”

Artist Ed Moses (b. 1926) incorporates his mother’s maiden name into his signatures, inscribing “Y Branco” and “Moses y Branco” on his works interchangeably. Olivia Branco raised Moses in Long Beach, California, while his father lived in Hawaii. Moses cites Pablo Picasso as inspiration for these signature variations. The Spanish artist signed works “Pablo Ruiz y Picasso” until around 1900. By adopting Picasso’s style and using his mother’s name in his signature, Moses pays homage to his maternal parentage.

Paintings, Planks, and Portals: John McCracken John McCracken (1934—2011) fused painting with sculpture within the context of 1960s West Coast Minimalism, Finish Fetish, and Light and Space art in California. As an artist who explored light and color in simple geometric forms, finished with highly polished fiberglass and lacquer, he both exemplified and transcended the various movements with which he was associated. Taking notice of cultural and technological trends in Southern California, he utilized what was available: the surfboard, automobile, and plastics industries. Five Paintings III (1974) and Painting #6 (1973), like so much of McCracken’s oeuvre, function as “three-dimensional canvases”—between painting and sculpture—objects to experience from multiple angles with sensuous surfaces. His signature works are high-gloss monolithic and monochromatic shapes—pure forms by way of industrial materials. McCracken developed the process for his fiberglass and resin pieces in an effort to find perfection. As an early experiment, he covered plywood with lacquer paint, but the wood grain showed through. By pouring fiberglass over the wood first, he could get a “really flat surface,” then apply the resin color smoothly, about 1 millimeter thick. He polished them with hand-held power tools, and sometimes sanded the edges by hand. Employing this handmade process to make pieces come out “right” (“how they were supposed to look”) paradoxically resulted in them looking machine-made, which was the goal. With pure forms McCracken wanted to make “otherworldly” objects with “hallucinatory” aspects. A favorite shape was what

he called a “plank.” These are made to rest on the floor and against the wall—and therefore reside in two spheres, one the traditional location for sculpture and the other for painting. He described them as portals linking two worlds—the grounded space of the floor or earth, and the “the imagination, illusionist painting space, [and] human mental space” of the wall. Painting #6, is like a plank in painting structure, with framework made to hang on the wall. The swirling blues, blacks, whites, and grays (a departure from the usual monochrome) are reminiscent of resin on vintage surfboards. Five Paintings III is one of a series of five high-gloss, wall-mounted rectangles made in 1974. (Five Paintings IV is in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego). A serendipitous accident occurred while applying the resin wherein many air bubbles or particulates were trapped in the surface. Depending on the angle, the surface looks highly reflective, or opaque, or alight with flashing sparks. Facing it, rather than seeing gestural or figurative brushwork, you can see yourself among what looks like a galaxy of stars. McCracken invites his viewers to enter another dimension. “About This Artwork: John McCracken.” Art Institute Chicago. The Art Institute of Chicago, 2015. Web. 24 June 2015. Clark, Robin, ed.

VANCOUVER SORROW: The Mystery of “Sandra” VANCOUVER SORROW, a poem in 26 parts, functions as a long-distance unrequited love story between an artist, Sandra, and a woman in Vancouver, Canada. Nearly every day for a month at the end of the year 1974, the artist mailed a single yellow lined page with a sentiment, a story, or abstract prose or poetry. The pages are handwritten in a beautiful script. A matching manuscript, in which each typewritten page mimics each letter exactly, is included. The first page starts: “<a romantic tale without an end>.” References to Diane Arbus, Brice Marden, and good times spent in Vancouver, Los Angeles, and more, follow. An air of mystery permeates the one-sided dialogue. The recipient is not referred to by name, and the sender's return address reads only “VANCOUVER SORROW” and a P.O. Box address in New York. One name, “Carl,” appears frequently. Carl is referred to on a page titled “Hollis Frampton,” in a “‘moving’ fugue” about a suicide at False Creek, and along with cognac—“cognac with Carl cognac.” Also, “Ian of all the artists who have been to my home Carl is the first to have brought anything.” The style of this artistic manuscript strongly resembles the concrete poetry of Carl Andre. A founding member of Minimalism in the mid-1960s, Carl Andre is regarded as one of America’s greatest living sculptors. But poetry was his first calling. His mother was an amateur poet, and he studied the subject at Phillips Andover Academy where he enrolled on a scholarship. From the 1950s and 1960s onward, Andre created text-based works and concrete poetry in addition to sculpture. He called these “typewriter drawings,” since the structure of the words on the page were as important as the actual content. The word combinations have a visual component—they are in descending lines, or blocks stacked upon each other. Often he uses stories from history or biographies, or those drawn from his own life. His Passport (1960) is like a scrapbook with poems and collages of items of interest to him. In Still a Novel (1972) sentences are arranged in grids and repeating blocks over 104 pages depicting the drama of photographer Eadweard Muybridge’s life. Andre sometimes injects into his work an irreverent sense of humor, with cunning puns and verbal jokes. In his ready-made series, Dada Forgeries, with a nod to Duchamp, he created the pseudonym Alden Carr, an anagram derived from his real name.

The manuscript VANCOUVER SORROW resembles Andre’s concrete poetry—the typed lines are formatted graphically; the occasional drawing interspersed. The tale ends thus: “But then I didn’t go to Vancouver to speak — I went to touch you — you who had touched me with your words covered and caressed me. And now I seem to be back at the beginning VANCOUVER, B.C. my Love, Sandra (handwritten)” But who is Sandra? The recipient of this poem does not seem to remember. She does recall, many years ago, meeting up with Carl Andre in Vancouver and Los Angeles, but not with a “Sandra.” Is it a man or a woman? Is it a false name? A pseudonym? Like a riddle or a game to play, with VANCOUVER SORROW you can open the airmail envelopes to see the pages, or you can read the complete typed manuscript, or find the accompanying used yellow notepad with remaining empty pages. Extremely rare and personal, VANCOUVER SORROW has never been on the market before. Unravel the mystery and read the entire narrative here for the first time.

Tom Friedman Drawing on a seemingly infinite reserve of patience, and a near obsessive concern with detail, multimedia artist Tom Friedman (b. 1965) consistently conjures up miracles and majesty from the most mundane materials. These include Styrofoam, toilet paper, cooked spaghetti, pencils, masking tape, plastic cups, and drinking strawsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and he uses them with wry humor. Friedman built a geometric starburst sculpture from 30,000 toothpicks; made a perfect sphere from 1,500 pieces of chewed gum; and fashioned a work between 1992 and 1995 entitled Everything, consisting of a single sheet of paper on which he wrote every word in a dictionary. The present lot, Hi, is one of a series of large-scale collages executed in 2006 and 2007, for which Friedman painstakingly culled magazines for thematic images, layering and building them to a near epic narrative tableaux. Friedmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work has been exhibited in major museums throughout the world, including solo shows at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Fondazione Prada in Milan, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.

Made of Color & Clay: Ken Price Central to the California Clay Movement, Ken Price (1935-1912) was one of the Los Angeles artists whose experimentation in ceramic sculpture revolutionized the medium to high art. During a brief time at the Otis College of Art and Design (then the Los Angeles County Art Institute), Price studied under Peter Voulkos. The “hero of American ceramics” (according to Price), who championed abstract sculpture, was a significant influence. At a young age, Price established himself in the emerging art scene with solo shows at the famed Ferus Gallery, in the company of artists and friends such as Billy Al Bengston and Robert Irwin. Early works included fanciful drinking vessels and plates; along with nonfunctional items—sculptures in organic shapes—“eggs,” “mounds,” and “blobs.” Critic Lucy R. Lippard deemed them as having both surrealist and naturalist tendencies. Price said they reminded him of “mountain peaks, breasts, eggs, worms, worm trails, the damp undersides of things, intestines, veins and the like.”

shapes, mottled, and reminiscent of Murano glass. Layers upon layers of acrylic paint were applied, and then fired. Price sanded the surface to reveal spots of the various colors underneath. Though the surface looks rough and pockmarked, it is actually smooth.

His early pieces were glazed, however, the artist used acrylic paints from 1983 onward. By 2000 Price was making rounded forms, like Up Back, often labeled “biomorphic” or “organic;” seemingly abstract “creatures” that might crawl away. He used color as a medium saying, “I wanted them to look like they were sort of made out of color.” Price developed a laborious technique resulting in these lavishly multi-colored

The artist was in poor health as his retrospective was being organized. In anticipation of this honor, rather than continue to receive medical treatment, he devoted his remaining time to creating work and preparing for the exhibition. Ken Price died on February 24, 2012. After its debut at LACMA, Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective traveled to the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Charles Arnoldi One of the most protean figures in the contemporary Los Angeles art world, Charles Arnoldi (b. 1946) is a painter, sculptor, and printmaker acclaimed for brightly colored compositions that straddle the margins of sculpture and painting; abstraction and representation. Both curiosity and experimentation are hallmarks of Arnoldi’s work—a theme that emerged in his groundbreaking “stick paintings” of the 1970s, made of found twigs and branches that Arnoldi shaped into constructions and affixed to panels. Widely exhibited in the United States, Arnoldi’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Los Angeles Modern Auctions spoke with Charles Arnoldi in August 2015 about his career and his artistic philosophy. Los Angeles Modern Auctions: When you moved to California to study in the late sixties, the art world was in a state of flux. How did that affect you? Charles Arnoldi: At art school they told me that painting was dead. Everyone was talking about conceptual art and process art. I was just some dumb kid from Dayton, Ohio. To me, art was painting and sculpture. My goal was to make valid paintings. LAMA: But then you did something unconventional with your compositions by using twigs. CA: To my mind, that was painting. The tree branches look to me like drawn lines; they were like brushstrokes. I was appropriating lines from nature—and the structure of the lines gave the work integrity. Not everyone agreed with me. When I had my first solo show in New York in 1975, I got

into a fight with Brice Marden at Max’s Kansas City [a 1960s and 1970s nightclub famous for its creative class patrons]. He said I shouldn’t call them paintings and that I was just ripping off Polynesian stick charts [traditional maps made by Micronesian islanders, using the ribs of coconut palm fronds, to represent patterns in ocean currents]. LAMA: Critics frequently write about the relationship of your work to “the California environment.” Would you be the same artist if you worked elsewhere? CA: I don’t consider myself a “California artist.” But there is a kind of attitude here, an open-mindedness— particularly about the use of non-traditional materials. When I got here, Billy Al Bengston was painting on dented metal. Ron Davis was using resin and fiberglass. Larry Bell was making sculpture using vapor films adhered to glass panels. That was exciting. I wouldn’t be the same artist if I had gone to New York. Californians don’t have that same obsession with their place in art history. And there’s not that competitiveness. I met Jasper Johns and Warhol and Bob Rauschenberg and went to their studios. I saw that they were just people, and that I could make art, too. I didn’t feel I had to outdo them. LAMA: The pieces in the auction form a sort of selected mini survey of your work. You have quite a diverse body of work. CA: I’m always receptive to new ideas, and I pursue them to their logical ends. Plus, once I get good at something, it seems to me that it’s time to move on. I don’t do it for novelty’s sake. There’s always pressure to reinvent the wheel—but that’s just a silly pursuit. We human animals always think we’re scaling some new pinnacle, but in fact someone has been there before. Art is simply what I do with my time on earth. Hopefully the work is interesting and challenging, and each painting or sculpture represents a certain point in time in my life.

From One LA Icon to Another: Ed Ruscha and the Hollywood Sign After moving to Los Angeles from Oklahoma City in 1956 to study graphic design at the Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts), Ed Ruscha (b. 1937) quickly gained his footing in the art scene and found early success as one of the “Cool School” associated with the Ferus Gallery. His start in commercial art influences his oeuvre: though he defies categorization with a varied output of photo-collages, paintings, prints, drawings, and books; his ironic words and deadpan style place him in the company of Pop artists. He often references the city’s vernacular and culture with conceptual word games. In Hollywood (1968) Ruscha uses an actual sign as his text, one that is an iconic image and a stand-in itself for the City of Angels, in a long format, as if in reference to the silver screen. The artist had a studio in East Hollywood for a number of years. “I would look out my window there, and if I could see the Hollywood sign I’d know the weather wasn’t too smoggy,” he said. Hollywood is a screenprint from an edition of 100, which he published and printed himself, using a split fountain technique so that several colors were run together directly onto the screen, creating modulations of blended colors. The Hollywood sign appears for the first time in this edition. Ruscha would later revisit the image, and in 1977 he painted the sign large-scale from another angle, which would become an iconic painting of his.

In Barcelona Founded in 1964, the Barcelona fine art printmaker Polígrafa Obra Gráfica established itself as one of the top firms of its kind in Europe. After the death of Francisco Franco in 1975, and at the end of Spain’s 36-year-long fascist regime, Polígrafa was widely credited for bringing new art and artists into the country, injecting a breeze of freshness and modernity to Spain’s moribund cultural atmosphere. One Polígrafa innovation was a short-term artistic residency program. In 1988 and 1989 the firm invited eight prominent California-based artists—Billy Al Bengston, Peter Alexander, Larry Bell, Laddie John Dill, Craig Kauffman, Ed Moses, Eric Orr, and Ed Ruscha—to spend two weeks in Barcelona and develop prints based on their experiences and impressions of the city. The resulting portfolio of 16 etchings and prints is a remarkable example of what can be wrought by a change of location, artistic medium, and cultural milieu. The octet of Californians, accustomed to vast spaces, bright and limpid light, and near total freedom of movement, formed their responses to an Old World city of dark, twisting, and narrow thoroughfares, tucked tightly between mountains and the sea.

Tara Donovan Tara Donovan (b. 1969) creates wondrous visual experiences, in large-scale installation and sculpture, from everyday objects. By stacking, piling, and densely arranging together hundreds of pieces of mundane materials like paper plates, plastic cups, or plastic straws, she renders surprisingly strange and beautiful results. They resemble great natural phenomena, such as nebulous clouds, or brittle landscapes, far beyond the scope of what one would expect from common household items. Curator Nicholas Baume describes Donovan as a young, contemporary minimalist, in the same vein as her predecessors Sol LeWitt, Carl Andre, or Eva Hesse. He says of her work, “It’s about creating a system, using a structure, and repeating incremental units that can go from the finite to the seemingly infinite . . . it brings it into our own period by suggesting digital, cellular, emergent networks. It seems to speak to the systems that are shaping our lives.” The shapes in Untitled (Paper Plates) (c. 2005) suggest natural systems, resembling sponges, or some other underwater element found in the sea. At the same time, they look to have a technological component, with a honeycomb pattern found in digital architecture drawings, aeronautic honeycomb filling, or the façade of the new Broad Museum in Los Angeles. The natural and the

technological meet in Donovan’s prints as well. In Untitled (Bubble Drawing) (2003) she uses a straw to blow bubbles from a mixture of liquid soap and ink, delicately transferring the bubbles onto the surface of the foamcore board. Over a short period of time, the bubbles pop or dissipate, creating physical traces of something normally ephemeral. Tara Donovan received the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” award in 2008, and the first annual Calder Prize in 2005. Over the last decade she has exhibited widely. She was a Hammer Projects artist in 2004 at the UCLA Hammer Museum, and has had solo exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. During the summer of 2015 she had four one-person shows: one in Edinburgh, one at Pace Gallery in New York, and one at Pace Prints, also in New York.

Achille Perilli Achille Perilli was born in 1927 in Rome. As a young painter he helped found Gruppo Arte Sociale (Social Art Group) in 1945 with other pioneers of abstract painting in Italy. Determined to bring back form as an artistic concern, Perilli helped compose the Forma 1 manifesto (published in the magazine of the same name) in 1947. These artists adhered to the ideals of form and abstraction above all else, and were influenced by constructivism and concrete art as well. ■

The painting Lo Scopo Della Vita (1962) was included in the national exhibition XIV Mostra Nazionale Premio Del Fiorino in Florence in 1963 and bears a Galeria Bonino, New York label. Notably, Perilli has participated in a number of Venice Biennale exhibitions; the most recent was in 2011. His work is included in the public collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome (MACRO).

Perilli exhibited widely in Italy and abroad; he is a mainstay in Italian postwar painting. He is known for dynamic cubist compositions of fragmented shapes and color fields, which are almost optical illusions, multifaceted and multidimensional. Perilli was included in what is considered to be the first exhibition of exclusively Italian abstract art, Abstract and Concrete Art in Italy (1951), at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome.

Interview: Richard Pettibone In a career that spans more than 50 years, Richard Pettibone (b. 1938) has created one of the most compelling and intriguing bodies of work in contemporary American art. A pioneer of appropriation—the reusing, adaptation, or reproduction of existing images and forms—Pettibone began in the early 1960s to paint miniature copies of modernist masterworks by artists such as Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, Frank Stella, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jasper Johns. His canvases are supported by painstakingly crafted stretchers and frames. Pettibone has an acuity for smallness and detail, a talent he developed as a boyhood model train enthusiast. His engaging work prompts both celebration and controversy, and raises questions about the nature of originality, and the relationship between art and the viewer. “Mr. Pettibone is a connoisseur and careful explorer of the chief wellspring of art-making: the simple love of art,” Roberta Smith, chief art critic for The New York Times, wrote in a review in 2005. “[H]e has made art that he can call his own. Its emotional wisdom for the artistically inclined is bracingly clear: love art, love yourself, do what you have to do and what only you can do. Utter honesty is the only path to originality.” Pettibone’s work is in the permanent collections of numerous institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. In August 2015 Los Angeles Modern Auctions spoke with the New York-based artist about thoughts and influences that informed the works of art on offer in this sale. Los Angeles Modern Auctions: This sale includes one of your versions, in oil, of Pepper Pot, from Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans series. That was the very first Warhol image you appropriated, back in 1964. Why did you choose that one? Richard Pettibone: Pepper Pot was the canvas used for the poster for the first ever show of the Campbell’s Soup Cans in 1962 at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles. I’m not sure if it was Andy or [gallery owner] Irving Blum who chose that one for the poster, though I suspect it was Irving. That show had a tremendous impact on me. And I was glad to see that, in the current show of the Campbell’s Soup Cans at the Museum of Modern Art—(Andy Warhol: Campbell’s Soup Cans and Other Works, 1953–1967, April 25–October 18, 2015)—they are presenting the paintings lined up one-by-one against the wall, as they were at Ferus. Ever since, the thirty-two soup flavors have been shown as a grid.

LAMA: What was Warhol like? RP: He was friendly and supportive. He was the first person in New York that I showed the paintings to. He thought they were funny. He told me to go to his gallery and see [art dealer] Leo Castelli, who eventually showed my work, too. I saw Andy maybe three or four times. LAMA: Tell us about the “Warhol” called Saturday Disaster (right hand panel). RP: A couple of years after he started the Death and Disaster series, Andy started adding a second, blank panel to the pictures, making them diptychs. When asked why he did it, Andy said: “To make them more expensive.” Well, one day I was at the gallery and I saw a blank canvas from Saturday Disaster in the back room. Someone had bought just the left hand panel, and left the other behind. So this is an homage to that orphaned right hand panel. LAMA: Marcel Duchamp is also one of your favorite artists. RP: I only copy what I love. When I first saw his work I thought Duchamp was far out. The library at the Otis College of Art and Design in L.A. had a copy of Robert Lebel’s great Duchamp monograph—incidentally, I found my copy of the book in the bargain basement at Macy’s, of all places—and, of course, I went to the incredible retrospective that [curator and Ferus Gallery co-founder] Walter Hopps organized at the Pasadena Art Museum [now the Norton Simon Museum] in 1963. I still think Duchamp is far out. I’m working on a series of paintings based on his urinal [Fountain, Duchamp’s famous “ready-made” sculpture of 1917 that consists of a porcelain urinal tipped on its end and signed “R. Mutt”]. I think of the urinal as a kind of self-portrait. My own bodily plumbing and my eyesight are a concern these days. Duchamp’s urinal was first published in the Dadaist magazine The Blind Man, in a photo by Alfred Stieglitz. [Laughs] LAMA: Your work defies easy categorization, though that never stops people from trying. RP: Take the “Frank Stella” paintings [Union and Moultonboro] in the auction. When I paint a Frank Stella abstract people ask, “So does that make you an abstractionist?” No! These are realist paintings of abstract art. I am probably more of a realist than most realists. That said, the colors in these Frank Stellas are not accurate to the originals. But these paintings are my own, after all.

Roy Lichtenstein’s Modern Head Series The Modern Head Series of 1970 was one of Roy Lichtenstein’s (1923—1997) signal endeavors in the early mature period of his artistic career. In the mid-1960s, he moved away from taking direct inspiration for his imagery from sources such as comic books and product packaging, toward abstract painting inflected by references to Cubism, Constructivism, and Art Deco design. Lichtenstein was deeply taken by Art Deco, or Machine Age, aesthetics, which he facetiously called “Cubism for the home.” This interest first manifested itself in his artwork in 1966, in both a poster for that year’s performance season at the Lincoln Center in New York, and in a composition titled Modern Painting with Bolt. In the latter, Lichtenstein “scrupulously orchestrated an interplay of vertical and diagonals, curves and straight edges, and dynamic and static forms,” writes art historian Carol Lanchner. “The result [is] a vigorous, handsomely contrived abstraction of evident Art Deco heritage.” In the middle of this stylistic period, Lichtenstein was inspired by Alexej von Jawlensky’s group of constructivist paintings of heads, presented in the 1968 show Serial Imagery at the Pasadena Art Museum (now the Norton Simon Museum), to create his Modern Head Series. Lichtenstein worked with Gemini G.E.L., the Los Angeles art printmaking firm that, though founded only in 1966, had already garnered wide acclaim for its technical expertise. It is particularly noteworthy that each work in the Modern Head Series was produced using a different and distinct printing method. Those employed include woodcut, lithography, linecut, embossing, and the use of a die-cut paper overlay. Though conceived and printed as a cohesive whole, the Modern Head Series is now rarely found intact. Lanchner, Carolyn, and Roy Lichtenstein. Roy Lichtenstein.

Christo’s Wrapped Payphone As masters of the grand gesture, the married duo Christo (b. 1935) and Jeanne-Claude (1935—2009) arguably invented the practice of supersized environmental art with their audacious and visually enthralling installations, involving logistics of epic proportions. They stretched a 365-foot-high curtain across a valley in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado in 1972; surrounded 11 islands with pink fabric in Biscayne Bay, Florida (1983); and hung more than 7,500 saffron-colored drapery panels across pathways in Central Park (The Gates, Central Park, New York, 1979—2005). Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s projects often included a transformative aspect: they altered the identity and nature of landmarks and public institutions by wrapping them as if they were packages, concealed in plastic or fabric. They’ve done so to a Parisian bridge, national buildings and monuments, museums, a church, and more. Though ephemerality was a central component to their installations (made to provoke intense and memorable experiences), Christo and Jeanne-Claude did make some lasting sketches and diagrams to sell.

MARKINGS DETAIL

Wrapped Payphone (1988) is a rare find—a tangible sculpture from a small edition. In collaboration with the German art publisher Edition Schellman, the artist wrapped household objects such as shoes, paint cans, and bottles. In one stroke, Christo’s Wrapped Payphone both recalls his early works of the 1950s and 1960s, and the mature environmental installations he realized with Jeanne-Claude. True to form, he wraps another, albeit smaller, public institution—the once ubiquitous New York payphone. But while the public payphone itself has diminished in significance, the significance of this piece has only increased. Today, in the era of digital information and personal mobile phones, amid concerns over privacy, and identity theft, Christo’s Wrapped Payphone now might lend itself to more interpretations and associations than on the day it was made.

Classic Frederick Hammersley Abstract Classicist painting is hard-edged painting. Forms are finite, flat, rimmed by a hard clean edge. These forms are not intended to evoke in the spectator any recollections of specific shapes he may have encountered in some other connection. They are autonomous shapes, sufficient unto themselves as shapes. — JULES LANGSNER Curator Jules Langsner both defined a movement by exhibiting four artists—Frederick Hammersley, Karl Benjamin, Lorser Feitelson, John McLaughlin—together under the banner “Four Abstract Classicists” in 1959, and is credited for coining the term Hard Edge painting. Noteworthy for putting West Coast abstraction on the map, the exhibition Four Abstract Classicists was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, opened at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and traveled internationally. The movement is seen as a “cool, crisp” counterpoint to Abstract Expressionism. With its flat shapes and hard edges, these artists distilled feelings and sought balance on the canvas, according to Langsner. In this exhibition, painter Frederick Hammersley (1919—2009) first gained critical recognition. In 1942 one of the younger artists of the group, Hammersley started studying at the Chouinard Art Institute (now the California Institute of the Arts). But his studies were interrupted from 1942—1946 during World War II when he served in the military. Stationed in Paris, this period proved to be instrumental in his development as he experimented with abstract imagery. He took courses at the École des Beaux Arts and visited the studios of Picasso, Brâncusi, and Cézanne. Upon his return to California, he continued at Chouinard and focused on painting colored and patterned shapes on flat surfaces, devoid of representation.

Hammersley is best known for his Hard Edge “geometrics” paintings, those comprised of circles and straight lines. Most follow a set of rules: based on a grid with a restricted palette, Hammersley would choose to add a diagonal or a circle or introduce a new color. The finished composition then would vary depending on his choices, with the original grid hidden beneath the resulting rectangles, triangles, squares, parallelograms, or L-shapes. The artist first drew and developed the linear composition and color scheme in a sketchbook, and used a palette knife to construct the precise edges on canvas—he never used tape. These paintings are bold and bright; the circles are counterpoints to and contrast the lines, adding a surprising touch of playfulness. Opposing (#15, 1959), is a vibrant example of a “geometrics” painting. It carries a significant exhibition history, having been in the Orange County Museum of Art’s Birth of the Cool: California Art, Design and Culture at Midcentury (2007-2008) curated by Elizabeth Armstrong. Armstrong conceived of the exhibit–a concentration of 1950s California cool in art, architecture, design, and jazz—when she saw the paintings of the Abstract Classicists, and those by Hammersley. The painting was exhibited in five other institutions as well, including at the Pomona College Museum of Art (2013—2014), the Oakland Museum of California (2008), and the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin (2009). “Frederick Hammersley.” Frederick Hammersley Foundation.

Axel Zacho was a visionary businessman who imported Scandinavian design through his Wilshire Boulevard store in Los Angeles from the 1930s until the store closed in 1962. The store, simply called Zacho, was in a building designed by KEM Weber and was among the first locations in the west where one could find designs by Danish masters such as Hans Wegner, Axel Salto, Berndt Friberg, and Just Anderson. Zacho was well known in Denmark and friends with nearly all of the artists and craftsmen he imported. In fact, to commemorate 25 years of friendship, Just Andersen created a large bronze bowl for Axel—Lot 375 offered in this auction. The following nine lots (Lot 375—383) were owned by Axel Zacho and have since remained in his family. AXEL ZACHO WITH JUST ANDERSEN BOWL

Those holding a valid California State Resale License must register before each sale and present their valid resale number. No purchases will be released until all sales tax requirements are satisfied. E ST IMATE S & R E S ER V E S The estimates printed after each lot should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon as a prediction of final selling prices. Many of the lots offered for sale carry a reserve and are confidential. The reserve is a minimum price at which the seller has agreed to let the auctioneer sell the property.

C ON DI TI O N Everything is sold in“As-Is” Condition. No statement regarding condition of any item, whether it is made orally at the auction, or in writing, or printed in this catalogue, or at any other time shall be deemed to be a warranty, representation, or assumption of liability. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to inspect all goods prior to the sale. We strongly encourage all bidders to request a condition report on any item before bidding. All electrical items are sold for decorative value only and should be assumed not to be working. All measurements are approximate. Photographs of any lots not illustrated can be found on our website, lamodern.com. C OL L ECTI O N & STO RA GE All lots must be removed from the auction showroom by 12:00p.m. (PT) on October 21, 2015. Purchases not removed by October 21, 2015 will be assessed a daily storage fee of $15 per day per lot. Items in storage are not insured by Modern Auctions, Inc. Unless other arrangements are made and confirmed in writing, the buyer assumes sole responsibility for shipping, packing, insurance, and storage concerns. A list of shippers can be provided upon request. BI DDI N G We encourage you to attend the sale in person. However, if you are unable to attend in person we offer an “absentee” or phone bidding service. For this service fill out and submit an Absentee/Phone bid form. To obtain this form please call 323.904.1950 or go to our website. We will not execute absentee or phone bid orders unless a signed and completed bid form has been received. All Absentee/Phone bid forms must be received by Saturday, October 10, 2015 by 5:00p.m. (PT) via fax to 323.904.1954 or scanned and sent via email to shannon@lamodern.com. We encourage you to call after faxing to confirm we have received your bid. We kindly ask that you do not call on the day of the sale to submit bids or to check if your bids were successful. All successful absentee/phone bidders will be notified by phone or email by October 13, 2015. In addition, the auction prices realized will be posted the day after the sale on our website. Do not rely on any auction results (prices realized) unless published on www.lamodern.com or as provided directly by Modern Auctions, Inc. Absentee/Phone bids are on a first-come, first-served basis; thus, we encourage you to submit your form ASAP. If identical absentee bids are submitted, the earliest received will take precedence. The number of phone lines available are limited so please submit your phone requests early. On all absentee/phone bid forms, please leave a valid credit card number with expiration date; a deposit of 25% may be required for all absentee and phone bids. Please note that we only accept credit card payments in person. For those absentee/phone bidders who are unable to come in personally to pay, we will only accept either a certified check or wire transfer as a method of payment (see “Payment” notice). The party responsible for submitting the absentee or phone bid is solely responsible for the payment in full of the total invoice. We will not make any changes to an invoice. Should a dispute arise after the sale, our sale records are conclusive. We are not responsible for failure to execute a bid and have the right to reject any bid. We reserve the right to withdraw any property before the sale and shall have no liability whatsoever for such withdrawal. Should an item be withdrawn, the auctioneer will make an announcement at the time the lot would have been put up for sale. In addition, the auctioneer may add lots not previously listed in the catalogue or addendum.

If the buyer does not comply with all of the notices to buyers, Modern Auctions, Inc. reserves the right to cancel the sale, hold the defaulting buyer liable for the purchase price and buyer’s premium, retain any deposit, and resell the property privately or at auction without further notice. In the latter, the defaulting buyer will be held responsible for all incurred expenses, such as warehouse and transportation costs, commissions, incidentals, and shall be liable for payment of any deficiency in the purchase price. This is strictly enforced. We reserve the right to assess a late charge of 1.5% of the total purchase price per month if payment is not made in accordance with any of these conditions of sale. GUA RA N TEE The authenticity of every item offered for sale is guaranteed. Modern Auctions, Inc. warrants only the authorship of an item (as printed in BLUE type) and does not guarantee the condition, age, or any identifying characteristic used by Modern Auctions, Inc., in any descriptions such as color, method of construction, and type of materials. Any lot using the terms “attributed,” “attribution,” “in the style of,” “in the manner of,” or “after” does not qualify for our guarantee. In addition, the buyer assumes responsibility for reading all addendums and posted corrections to the catalogue prior to bidding. RESCI SSI O N Should the authenticity of an item be disputed after a sale, the buyer has 90 days from the date of the auction to provide written documentation or conclusive opinion of a mutually agreed upon independent expert, retained at the buyer’s sole expense, that the item in question is not as stated in the catalogue. In the event of an error, Modern Auctions, Inc. will rescind the purchase contract. Modern Auctions, Inc. will reimburse the buyer for no more than the hammer price plus the buyer’s premium and only after the item is returned to the original point of sale in the condition in which it was sold. Taxes, packing, shipping, and storage costs will not be reimbursed. Modern Auctions, Inc. is not liable for any costs, such as expert’s and attorney’s fees. If the item is authentic, as stated in the Modern Auctions, Inc. catalogue, then the purchaser shall bear Modern Auctions, Inc.’s expenses incurred in defense of the allegation, such as attorney’s fees and other costs. The limited right of rescission is only available to the original purchaser from Modern Auctions, Inc. Once the item is resold, then all rights and liabilities of Modern Auctions, Inc. regarding authenticity end.

The Purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy against Modern Auctions, Inc. for any reason is the limited right of rescission described in this section. The purchaser shall not be entitled to damages, compensatory, incidental, consequential, nominal or punitive, nor any expenses incurred during the proceedings, such as expert’s fees, attorney’s fees, and other costs.

THE SCHINDLER HOUSE ON KINGS ROAD DESIGNED AND BUILT BY SCHINDLER IN 1921-22 AS LIVE/WORK SPACE FOR TWO FAMILIES —his own and friend and engineer Clyde Chace’s—the Schindler House redefined notions of public and private spheres. As a result of its innovative program for communal modern living, the house became a site of forward-thinking aesthetic, cultural, and political activity throughout the 1920s-50s. It is the mission of the MAK Center to continue the conversation initiated by Schindler by creating and supporting programming that explores the dynamic intersections of art, architecture, and culture.
