58 David Hockney (British, b. 1937) Caribbean Tea Time, from the series Moving Focus, 1985-87, edition of 36 plus proofs, published by Tyler Graphics, Ltd., Mount Kisco, New York (MCA Tokyo, 288). Numbered and signed “AP VII/X David Hockney” in pencil on right-most panel l.c. Color lithograph with hand-coloring, and collage on eight sheets of TGL handmade paper, assembled together in a fourpanel, folding, contoured, lacquered, and hand-painted wood floor screen, with four screenprinted plastic panels, all designed by the artist, full size 86 x 136 in. (218.4 x 345.5 cm). Condition: Deckled edges and floated as originally presented by the artist, areas of cracking/loss to frame, several rubs to Plexiglas, screenprinted panels somewhat yellowed.

N.B. Hockney is a virtual jack-of-all-trades, embracing both traditional and newer media— from acrylic paint to PhotoShop—and working as a painter, print-maker, photographer, and even a set designer. He is considered one of Britain’s most dominant Pop artists, although it is a categorization that he dislikes. From 1984 through 1987 Hockney created the series Moving Focus. What makes this series of 29 prints unusual is the seeming disconnect of the subjects of the works. They include interior views, portraits, and still lifes, and vary wildly in size. The title of the series discloses the unifying principal: each plays with the depiction of space and the potential for multiple points of view. The series has been described as “Hockney’s dialogue with Picasso.”

Provenance: A private Massachusetts collection.

Caribbean Tea Time employs simple lines and blocks of bright, saturated color to depict an interior with a shifting, Cubist space that is both highly descriptive and playfully vertiginous. The sense is heightened by the scale of the work, and the fact that as a floor screen, it is generally viewed accordioned rather than flat so that our space and the screen’s interpenetrate. $75,000-95,000

Inscribed, titled, dated, and numbered “1833...8/10” in black ink on the mount verso l.l., signed by Michael Ward Stout, executor, in blue ink and dated in black ink in photographer’s estate copyright credit stamp on the mount verso l.c., inscribed “RMG # M9401 080-C” in pencil on the mount verso l.r.

Provenance: Purchased from the Fletcher/ Priest Gallery, Worcester, Massachusetts, 1994, by a private Massachusetts collector. N.B. Robert Mapplethorpe’s extensive and provocative body of work has established him as one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. Remarkable for their technical and formal mastery, Mapplethorpe made photographs that simultaneously challenge and adhere to classical aesthetic standards. What unites his diverse subjects— male and female nudes, homoerotic images, floral still lifes, and studio portraits of artists and celebrities—is the constancy of his approach and technique. The surfaces of his prints offer a seemingly endless gradation of blacks and whites with rich interplays of shadow and light. Regardless of subject,

his images are both elegant and suggestive. This is particularly true of his flowers, which draw on a rich history of artists’ depictions of flora while also displaying an intense and alluring sensuality. A photocopy of the invoice accompanies the lot. $20,000-30,000

Signed, numbered, titled, and dated “ABELARDO MORELL #17/30...” in pencil on the verso at bottom (visible through an opening in the backing). Gelatin silver print, sight size 17 7/8 x 22 1/4 in. (45.3 x 56.4 cm), framed. Condition: Not examined out of frame. N.B. Photographer Abelardo Morell is noted for his series of works made using camera obscura techniques. He describes the process in this way: “In setting up a room..., I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This opening allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the back walls of the room. Typically then I focused my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall then make a camera exposure on film... One of the satisfactions I get from making this imagery comes from my seeing the weird and yet natural marriage of the inside and outside.”1 1. http://www.abelardomorell.net/project/camera-obscura/

Exhibitions: Second Exhibition of Paintings in the Athenaeum Gallery, The Boston Athenaeum Gallery, May 1, 1828, as The Robbers, painted in 1809, lent by Dr. Lowell, no. 183.

N.B. Described by sculptor Horatio Greenough as “America’s first born poet painter,”1 Washington Allston holds a prominent place in American art history as one of our earliest Romantic artists. Allston was among the first American artists to paint using the sophisticated techniques of the Old Masters, particularly the Venetians (Titian, Tintoretto, and Veronese) and Rubens, and his canvases were admired by his contemporaries for their glazing, rich color, and fine draftsmanship, as well as for their more challenging “grand themes” that included landscape, historical, Biblical, and literary subjects.

Shortly after this work was painted, Allston left Charleston for London where he studied with Benjamin West, further absorbing the lessons of the Old Masters and expanding his subject matter. He continued his education with sojourns in France and Italy. Since his Harvard days, Allston had a fascination with Italy and found inspiration in the works of Nicolas Poussin and Claude Lorraine. While Allston returned to the United States to make his home in Cambridge, Massachusetts, he would continue to visit Europe regularly, finding there the most kindred intellectual spirits and artistic milieu. He continued to exhibit at the Boston Athenaeum regularly from 1828 until his death.

The son of a prominent South Carolina family, Allston was educated privately in Newport, Rhode Island, and then at Harvard College, where he graduated in 1800, honored as Class Poet. Returning home to Charleston, Allston disclosed his favorite painting subject at that time to be banditti, or as he later described it “bandittimania,” a theme most scholars agree was partly inspired by the 17th century Italian Proto-Romantic artist Salvator Rosa, whose works Allston may have known firsthand. Kerry Dean Carso also points out that Allston was likely influenced by novelist Ann Ward Radcliffe’s rich descriptions of banditti set amidst romantic, foreign landscapes, as in The Mysteries of Udolpho: A Romance.2 Allston reflected on the painting at hand in a letter to William Dunlap in July 1833, writing, “Up to this time my favorite subjects, with an occasional comic intermission, were banditti.—I remember one of these, where I thought I had happily succeeded in cutting a throat! The subject of this precious performance was, robbers fighting with each other for the spoils, over the body of a murdered traveller. And clever ruffians I thought them. I did not get rid of this banditti mania until I had been over a year in England.”3

As noted above, the work at hand bears a label from the Fogg Art Museum which was affixed to the painting when it was brought to the Museum for photography in February 1949 by Mr. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Dana. The description at the time was “Bandits Robbing Man with Horse and Wagon” by Washington Allston. The work was returned a few days later to 105 Brattle Street which is the address of the current Longfellow National Historic Site, where H.W.L. Dana was compiling the papers of Washington Allston. Allston had deep connections with the Dana family and maintained friendships across several generations after meeting Edmund T. Dana and Richard Henry Dana at Harvard. Allston married Martha Dana, sister of Richard Henry Dana, in 1830.

The painting is described by William Gerdts in “A Man of Genius” The Art of Washington Allston, based on a photograph in the Longfellow National Historic Site (this painting’s location was unknown at the time of publication in 1979). Dr. Gerdts wrote, “The picture appears rather fluidly, in parts sketchily, handled with an arbitrary drama of light and dark, but a great deal of vigor and activity, and a sense of violent abandon consonant with the subject. The forms are rendered roundly and solidly, in a manner that suggests some acquaintance with actual examples of Flemish seventeenth-century art, and more specifically, with the style of the Dutch artist Philip Wouvermans.”4

An old handwritten label on the reverse records T.L. Winthrop as owner, and mentions a second, illegible name, “Judge H... Long,” whom the note records as having left the painting to T.L. Winthrop. The note also says the painting was left for safekeeping with Mrs. R.C. Winthrop. 1.

251 John La Farge (American, 1835-1910) On the Bayou Teche, Louisiana Signed “John La Farge” l.r., titled and dated “.../circa 1860” on a label from Spanierman Gallery, New York, affixed to the frame backing. Oil on canvas, 28 3/4 x 38 3/4 in. (73.0 x 98.4 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, stretcher replaced, craquelure, retouch. Provenance: Charles Auction Galleries, Flushing, New York, 1963; by descent to the current private collection, New York. Literature: Henry Adams, et al., John La Farge, exhibition catalog (Pittsburgh: The Carnegie Museum of Art, 1987), pp. 86-7 (ill.); John La Farge: An American Master (18351910), exhibition catalog (Newport: William Vareika Fine Arts, 1989), no. 3. Exhibitions: John La Farge: An American Master (1835-1910), William Vareika Fine Arts, Newport, July 14–September 30, 1989.

N.B. John La Farge painted this rare early landscape either while visiting Louisiana in the spring of 1860, or in his studio in New York shortly after his trip south. Journeying by boat down the Mississippi River, he went to Louisiana to visit Margaret Perry (his future wife) who had spent the winter as a guest at the sugar plantation “Oaklawn Manor,” at Irish Bend, near the town of Franklin. La Farge had spent the years 1856 and 1857 traveling in Europe and studying art in the Paris studio of Thomas Couture. By 1859, La Farge had made his way to Newport to work with fellow Couture disciple William Morris Hunt. Hunt had also studied with Barbizon artist Jean-François Millet and shared La Farge’s interest in the paintings of Millet and JeanBaptiste-Camille Corot. In a style recalling that of the Barbizon artists, La Farge depicts here two slaves rolling a cask of sugar to a small riverboat. La Farge’s grandson, Henry A. La Farge, inspected On the Bayou Teche in 1966 and confirmed its authenticity. He also noted that the artist’s sketchbook from the trip to Louisiana included drawings of figures rolling barrels that correspond to this painting (the sketchbook is now lost; however, photographs of the relevant pages from the sketchbook are included with the lot). The artist painted at least one other painting of the Louisiana landscape, On the Bayou Teche, Morning, Louisiana, which is in a private collection. The lot includes a dossier with extensive correspondence regarding the work and its authenticity. $70,000-90,000

(The letter replaced a letter dated March 23, 2009, which was written by Dr. Quick to the former owner.) In the letter, Dr. Quick wrote that this work dates from a period when “...Inness favored more complicated compositions of this kind, and when his technique used the extensive colored glazes that add rich atmosphere and color to Sunset. Often, as in this case, sharp detail in a large foreground tree is contrasted with the deftly managed softness of the glazed middle ground and distance. During the period Inness also painted a few landscapes with dimly seen mystical cities, as in this painting.” $15,000-25,000

N.B. The lot is accompanied by letters discussing the painting from William H. Gerdts (dated November 21, 1984) and Judith O’Toole (dated February 16, 1988). Both indicate that the work may be authentic, described as “highly likely” by Gerdts, but also discuss the possibility that Roesen produced his prolific still lifes with the aid of a workshop and that the artist had many students and followers also working in his genre. William Gerdts suggests in his letter that the painting dates from the 1850s. $7,000-9,000

277 Henry Merwin Shrady (American, 18711922) George Washington at Valley Forge Signed “H.M/SHRADY” in the bronze on the top of the base near the horse’s rear hooves, incised “ROMAN BRONZE WORKS N-Y-” along the left side bottom edge of the base. Bronze with brown patina, height 25 in. (63.5 cm). Condition: Small ring on the bit missing causing one piece of rein to be loose, right stirrup loose, dust and dirt to interstices. N.B. Henry M. Shrady was a self-taught sculptor. He began his artistic pursuits as a young man and recent graduate of Columbia University (1894) by sketching animals at the Bronx Zoo. His early sculptures displayed his talent for observing and rendering detail, catching the eye of Theodore B. Starr, a New York jeweler, who encouraged the artist to produce small animal statuettes to be cast and sold in his Fifth Avenue gallery. These small bronzes attracted the attention of

Karl Bitter, director of sculpture for the Pan American Exposition (Buffalo, 1901), who invited Shrady to enlarge some models for the fairgrounds. Pleased with the opportunity but at a loss with no formal training, Shrady accepted Bitter’s offer to use his Weehawken studio and enjoyed a few weeks of technical instruction from the Viennese-trained Bitter. That same year, Shrady won the competition for an equestrian statue of George Washington, which was installed at the Continental Army Plaza in Brooklyn and dedicated in 1906. Shrady had entered the competition for the George Washington sculpture at the suggestion of a member of the selection committee who had seen his small bronze The Empty Saddle at Theodore B. Starr’s showroom. Shrady chose to depict Washington as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the difficult winter of 1777-78 at Valley Forge. Washington is presented as a strong, contemplative figure

astride a horse which lowers its head against the severe weather. During the creation of the work, Shrady sought the critique of Augustus Saint-Gaudens who found the lines, sentiment, and character to be admirable. Several replicas of the final maquette were cast. Although it is not known exactly how many were made, examples may be seen in museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Bennington (VT) Museum, the Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, the Henry M. Flagler Museum in Palm Beach, and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, Pennsylvania. Shrady was later commissioned to make a replica of the monument for Kansas City, Missouri, which was dedicated posthumously in 1925. Information for this N.B. was drawn from American Sculpture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Vol. 2, Thayer Tolles, Editor (New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 2001), p. 544-548. $2,000-4,000

321 Loïs Mailou Jones (American, 1905-1998) Dinghies at a Shallow Mooring Signed “Loïs M./Jones” l.r., signed or inscribed “L.M. JONES” on the reverse. Oil on canvas, 10 x 13 in. (25.3 x 33.1 cm), framed. Condition: Small paint losses to u.c., minor craquelure, surface grime. N.B. For more than fifty years, Loïs Mailou Jones forged a successful career as a painter, teacher, book illustrator, and textile designer. An artist of international acclaim, she has been represented in more than seventy group shows and the subject of twenty one-woman exhibitions since 1937. Born in Boston, Jones was educated at Boston’s High School of Practical Arts (19191923), and graduated with honors in 1926 from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, the only African American among the student body. From her earliest years, Jones spent summers on Martha’s Vineyard where her grandmother Phoebe Moseley Adams Ballou was one of the first African American summer

residents of the Island, and, with Thomas Hart Benton, Jones is claimed as one of the island’s own. The Vineyard life and landscape, particularly Menemsha, inspired many of her paintings. In 1928, Jones took a position teaching art at one of the country’s first preparatory schools for black students, Palmer Memorial Institute, in Sedalia, North Carolina. Less than two years later, Jones was recruited by James V. Herring of Howard University in Washington, DC, which marked the beginning of her distinguished fifty-year career as a professor. She became associated with the William E. Harmon Foundation shortly after moving to Washington, and was a frequent participant in its exhibitions during the 1930s. Jones expanded her education with a fellowship to France in 1937, where she studied painting at the Académie Julian, learned to speak French fluently, and painted views of Paris and surrounding areas. She wrote that in France she was allowed “to be shackle free, to create and be myself.”1 Jones was the only African American female painter of the 1930s and 1940s to achieve fame abroad, and the earliest whose subjects extended beyond the realm of portraiture.

Back in the United States, Jones continued to paint and exhibit, including a successful show at Robert Vose Galleries, Boston, in 1939. In 1941, Jones entered her painting Indian Shops, Gay Head, Massachusetts in a competition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. Despite her impressive credentials, Jones could not submit the work directly, because African Americans were not permitted to enter the contest, so she had a white friend deliver the painting to the gallery. When it won the Robert Woods Bliss Award for Landscape, Jones had the award mailed to her to keep her identity a secret.2 A half century later the museum publicly apologized to the artist for its past prejudicial policies at its reception for her 1994 solo exhibition, The World of Loïs Mailou Jones.3 Much of the information in this N.B. was drawn from “Against All Odds,” an article by Karla Araujo that appeared in Martha’s Vineyard Magazine, November 2014. 1.

N.B. Accompanied by a letter from Dr. Joachim Pissarro dated June 22, 2017, stating that the work will be included in the forthcoming Catalogue Raisonné of Drawings by Camille Pissarro. Dr. Pissarro’s letter explains that Pissarro was particularly interested in market scenes in the 1880s and 1890s, especially for the interactions among ages, classes, and sexes. The work at hand is closely related to a gouache by Pissarro titled Marché aux Pommes de Terre, Boulevard des Fossés, Pontoise. The two foreground figures are almost identical in each work, although the gouache presents some extra detail particularly in the background. Pissarro likely conceived of this drawing around the same time as the gouache, c. 1882. $8,000-10,000

Oil on canvas, 23 3/4 x 36 1/8 in. (60.5 x 91.5 cm), framed. Condition: Lined, drying cracks. Provenance: Sotheby’s New York, Russian Art, April 23, 2004, Lot 20, to a private Rhode Island collection. Exhibitions: Petit Palais-Gèneve, PostImpressionisme (1880-1910), July 1– September 30, 1980; Musée de Montmarte, Paris, Russes, June 20–September 21, 2003, illustrated in the catalog for the exhibition, p. 8. N.B. Please note that the artist’s name has many English and French spelling variations when translated from Cyrillic, including Filip Andreevic Maljavin, Philippe Maliavine, Filipp Andreevic Malyavin, and Philip Andreevic Maliavin, or Maljawin. Philippe Malyavin (Filipp Maliavine) was one of the leading Russian painters of the early 20th century. Born into a large and very poor peasant family in the village of Kazanka, Malyavin developed an early love of art from the exposure to icons brought to the village by travelling monks. He convinced his family

to send him to Mount Athos to study icon painting, and with the help of the village, at age 16 he made the journey to Greece. He was disappointed when he arrived to learn that the monks there were actually copying Russian icons, but since he lacked the money to return home, he became a novice assigned to paint icons and murals. Through the generosity of the artist Vladimir Beklemishev, who visited the monastery and recognized the talent of the young artist, Malyavin returned to Russia in 1892 to study at the St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, entering the studio of Ilya Repin. There Malyavin developed his skills as a gifted portrait painter and also began his paintings of Russian peasants, a theme which while initially controversial would become his lasting legacy. Laughter (1899), his bold painting of peasant women in flowing red dresses in a green meadow, created as his graduation work for the Academy of Arts, was actually rejected by the Academy, but subsequently earned Malyavin the Gold Medal at the World Exhibition in Paris (1900). The more conservative Academy awarded Malyavin the title of “Artist” based on the quality of his work in portraiture, while his peasant canvases found favor abroad and were purchased by museums in Paris and Venice. From 1901 through 1910 Malyavin lived in Ryazan province, where he developed his paintings of large-scale peasant figures, who appear as strong-willed and independent

individuals. In these compositions, sometimes of single figures, other times showing two or three together, the figures are brought to the foreground and are presented from a low angle to increase their monumentality. These peasants are not always beautiful, but they radiate inner strength and integrity, and they reveal age, character, and mood. Malyavin’s style developed as a fusion of Russian Impressionism and traditional folk themes with abstraction, influenced by French painting and by the Swedish artist Anders Zorn. His works are noted for his expressive brushwork, sweeping movement, and love of strong color, especially reds. However, by 1910 Malyavin was falling out of favor with the official art critics. He was not banned, but was considered “decadent” by the influential critic Vladimir Stasov, for whom the lively, healthy, and colorful peasants of Malyavin did not coincide with the political image of the oppressed people of the countryside. By the 1920s the Russian hierarchy would only permit the exhibition of paintings deemed to have “educational value,” and the country’s rich holdings of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and Fauve works were removed from view. Malyavin immigrated to Paris in 1922, and lived there and in Nice through the 1930s. During World War II he fled to Brussels, where he was arrested by the Gestapo in 1940 and accused of espionage. He was subsequently released and is said to have walked all the way back to Nice, where he died the next year. $80,000-120,000

Exhibitions: Annual Salon, Towarzystwo Zachety Sztuk Pieknych, Warsaw, 1919, checklist no. 278. N.B. Born in Belarus to Polish-Jewish parents, Eugeniusz Zak studied art in Paris at the École des Beaux-Arts under JeanLéon Gérôme and at the Académie Colarossi with Albert Besnard. He worked on idyllic landscapes and Arcadian scenes populated by shepherds and fishermen during this time. With the outbreak of World War I, Zak moved to Poland and painted several works similar to Young Acrobat. These paintings all depict a solemn figure in a sparse interior setting and recall Pablo Picasso’s Rose and Blue Period paintings, as well as the elongated figures of Amedeo Modigliani’s works. Often associated with the group of early twentiethcentury artists known as the École de Paris, Zak was sure to have been familiar with the works of Picasso and Modigliani. Zak’s stylized and graceful figures also bear the influence of his interest in Renaissance artists like Sandro Botticelli. Returning to Paris in 1923, Zak’s works maintained the nostalgic and melancholic tone he had adopted during the war. $40,000-60,000

N.B. Paul Cadmus met dancer Donny Nardona through the painter Elwyn Chamberlain in 1956. At the time, Nardona was a student at The School of American Ballet and Cadmus had recently returned to the United States from a two-year stint living and working in France and Italy. A skilled and prolific draughtsman, Cadmus had begun as a student at the National Academy of Design in 1919, at the age of 15, and had studied drawing exclusively for the following four years. He continued to create beautifully detailed charcoal, pen and ink, and egg tempera portraits throughout his career, often using the same male models repeatedly. He made at least four other drawings of Nardona, including a more formal version (in egg tempera) of this work (see Guy Davenport, The Drawings of Paul Cadmus [New York: Rizzoli, 1989], pp. 70-71, 76). A great admirer of Italian Renaissance artists, Cadmus began working with the early Renaissance medium of egg yolk tempera paint around 1940. Because it could take up to six months to finish a painting with egg tempera, Cadmus produced only a few paintings each year. He continued to work on figure drawings, however, throughout his career using his partner, Jon Anderson, as his principal model after 1965. Shortly after Nardona modeled for Cadmus, he quit dancing and moved to Florida. $5,000-7,000

Acrylic on canvas, 83 3/8 x 21 1/2 in. (211.8 x 54.6 cm), framed. Condition: Minor surface grime. Provenance: Hokin Gallery, Palm Beach, Florida; Andre Emmerich Gallery, New York, 1982; to a private Massachusetts collection. N.B. Participating in his first major group show in 1965 and still working today, Larry Poons has had a long and successful career. First associated with Op Art (his contribution to that first group show, “The Responsive Eye” at The Museum of Modern Art, was Nixe’s Mate, 1964, a large red canvas with an orderly array of oval dots spread across its surface), Poons began experimenting with acrylic paint in the early 1970s in a manner most similar to the Abstract Expressionists. He threw and poured the paint onto huge canvases he rolled out to cover the walls of his studio. He would spend several painting sessions working on a mural-sized canvas, then he would isolate areas of the canvas with masking tape and cut those out into smaller compositions. Though very physical in his methods, and necessarily at the mercy of uncontrollable forces such as gravity, Poons concentrated on the formal qualities of color, texture, format, and scale. Colonial (Lot 424) perfectly exhibits Poons’s interest in density—for this work, he applied a large amount of paint to the canvas, layering and mixing to create an immediate impression of deep, dark color. However, Poons began with a generous splash of pastel pink which, along with aqua and bright lemon yellow, occupies the uppermost portion of this long, narrow canvas. With the help of gravity, he pulled the paint downwards into strong vertical rivulets of intense eggplant and earthy brown, shot through with stripes of bright turquoise, orange, and crimson. As the pigment slides down, it clots, pools, and drips along the way, and the shades grow deeper and darker in tone. 423

Pockmarks left by air bubbles and a few deep crevices (drying cracks) give character to the thick and otherwise smooth texture of the surface. Poons played even more with texture in this untitled work (Lot 423), in which areas of thick impasto contrast with sections of paint that are thin enough for the weave of the underlying canvas to be discernible. Many stretches of paint have a rough texture, where Poons must have added something like sand to the acrylic. In the 1980s, when he created this work and Colonial, Poons began to obstruct gravity’s pull on the flow of paint by placing various objects, including crumpled paper and pieces of foam, on the canvas. Around these obstacles, the paint formed bulges, peaks, and chasms. The hues in this untitled painting are more muted than those in Colonial—pastel yellows, peaches, and white, though streaks of fuchsia and royal blue prevent the work from being meditative. While indebted to Jackson Pollock in the physicality of his method, Poons expanded upon Pollock’s drips and pours by using the power of his entire body to hurl large amounts of paint onto canvases (as opposed to Pollock’s elegant, dance-like movements). Poons’s works of the 1970s and 1980s are dense in both texture (thick layers of paint) and color (rich, surprising combinations add to the sense of depth). Poons is often associated with Color Field painters like Kenneth Noland and Helen Frankenthaler; however, while color certainly plays a distinct role in Poons’s work, it does not supersede considerations of scale, texture, and gesture. $20,000-40,000

434 Alexander Kosolapov (Russian/American, b. 1943) Mickey-Lenin Signed and dated “A. KOSOLAPOV/2002” on the base on the reverse, title provided by the artist. Bronze with a golden brown patina, height 50 in. (127.0 cm). Condition: Abrasions and nicks to the edges of the base. N.B. Alexander Kosolapov’s sculptures, paintings, and prints provoke harsh criticism, sometimes censorship, and often humor. His jokes are not partisan—they poke at both Russia and the United States. He appropriates imagery from Soviet history, pop culture, religion, and art history that he combines in often subversive ways. Taking a cue from Andy Warhol, Kosolapov delights in iconic symbols of American consumerist culture. For Kosolapov, these include Mickey Mouse, Marlboro, and Coca-Cola, images of which he links with political and religious figures central to Russian culture, including Stalin, Lenin, and Christ. He never forgets his place in the continuum of art history, often including some nod to artists who preceded him. In Mickey-Lenin, the major players are obvious: Mickey Mouse and Vladimir Lenin, and the connotations come easily: East–West, Russia– United States, communism–capitalism, good–evil, and high–low. Kosolapov modeled the figure’s body after statues of Lenin by the Soviet sculptor Nikolai Tomsky, and its pose is that of a classical Roman figure sculpted in the traditional medium of bronze. Kosolapov developed the idea for Mickey-Lenin shortly after immigrating to the United States in 1975. He found the discarded plastic head of a Mickey Mouse toy, took it home, and placed it atop a small sculpture of Lenin that he kept on his desk. Kosolapov identifies with a movement known as Sots Art. Developed in Moscow in the 1970s by the art duo Komar and Melamid, Sots Art (an abbreviation of “socialist pop art”) reacted against the conformist, state-sanctioned style of Socialist Realist art and the bold graphic style of Soviet state propaganda by using their imagery in Dadaist artworks and conceptual performances. By the 1980s, the Soviet government recognized the political criticism of Sots Art and began to put pressure on artists associated with the movement to emigrate. Still wary of political criticism, Russian authorities do not roll out the red carpet for Kosolapov. Artworks in a 2003 group show, Caution! Religion!, at the Andrei Sakharov Museum in Moscow, to which he contributed works including a print entitled This Is My Blood (a depiction of Christ next to the Coca-Cola logo), were vandalized by Russian Orthodox radicals, eventually resulting in the arrest of the exhibition curator, museum director, and one of the artists. The same museum director and a curator were arrested again after the group show, Forbidden Art 2006, in which Kosolapov also participated. $25,000-35,000
