I having put any new offerings on the website in quite some times and the place is absolutely brimming with paintings, prints and merchandise. Like this wonderful oil on canvas modernist painting by Emil Kosa Jr. (1903-1968) that came out of my friend, the late Martin Medac’s, collection. It measures 40 x 30″ plus strip frame. I really love it.
I have seen a fair amount of Kosa’s abstraction and this one is the absolute best I have seen. His modeling and volume here is extraordinary. Much of his abstraction is two dimensional and he was stepping out here. It doesn’t have a title, my overactive mind is thinking winged hydra holds up the world. $4800
Have you ever heard of an artist named Julie Speed (b. 1951)? A transplant to Texas, she is a remarkable artist and already has a monograph out. Very talented painter and printmaker. I recently found this lovely hand colored gravure, Singing Yolanda. approx. 12 x 9″. Edition of 40. $800
I bought a magnificent sterling silver overlay cuff by the late Michael Kabotie (1942-2009), the famous hopi painter and silversmith, son of the equally if not more famous Fred Kabotie. signed Lomawywesa verso sold
I am helping a friend and compatriot sell this 38 x 32″ oil on canvas still life by the noted California modernist Robert Frame (1924-1999) 38×28″.$2500
A Navajo modernist cuff with Kingman turquoise by the noted silversmith Mark Roanhorse Crawford. Originally sold by the Heard Museum at an annual sale. $800
Two paintings by the hot modernist artist Bradford Salamon (b. 1963) Brad is noted for his quirky surrealism. He has sold to Museums and has done very well at auction. These two nonobjective abstract oil on canvas paintings from 2007 and 2017 respectively are a steal I think and a great investment. They each measure 36 x 36″. $1800 per painting.
Two large Polia Pillin (1909-1992) ceramic plaques, each approximately 17″ square and framed in nice and clean plexiglass boxes. These are very rare, as large as you will find with this artist as this was her maximum kiln measurement. call for price.
