June 1: Selected works

BECKMANN (Leipzig, 1884 - 1950 New York) - Animal garden in winter, oil / Lwd., Signed and dated, 1937 Max BECKMANN (Leipzig 1884 - 1950 New York) BECKMANN (Leipzig, 1884 - 1950 New York) - Animal garden in winter, oil / Lwd., Signed and dated, 1937 Max BECKMANN (Leipzig 1884 - 1950 New York)

From the window of his Berlin apartment, artist Max Beckmann could see a piece of forest. In 1937, the artist captured the forest in a dark and ominous style, reflecting the gloomy mood of Beckmann. That same year, the government confiscated more than 500 of his works from German museums, putting them on display in the infamous Degenerate Art exhibition in Munich.

OTTO MUELLER (Liebau / Schlesien 1874 - 1930 Breslau) - Two female acts in the forest, watercolor / chalk / paper, signed OTTO MUELLER (Liebau / Schlesien 1874 - 1930 Breslau) OTTO MUELLER (Liebau / Schlesien 1874 - 1930 Breslau) - Two female acts in the forest, watercolor / chalk / paper, signed OTTO MUELLER (Liebau / Schlesien 1874 - 1930 Breslau)

The harmony between man and nature is the focal point of Otto Mueller's oeuvre. The artist would repeatedly paint and draw lush plants in an Expressionist style. Mueller tried to reproduce plants and figures with the greatest possible simplicity and sensuality.

CONRAD FELIXMÜLLER (Dresden 1897 - 1977 Berlin) - Woman in the forest (Wiesbaden), Oil / Lwd., In the woods (Wiesbaden), oil and canvas, titled, numbered and signed. , Titled, numbered and signed, 1918 CONRAD FELIXMÜLLER (Dresden 1897 - 1977 Berlin) - Woman in the forest (Wiesbaden), Oil / Lwd., In the woods (Wiesbaden), oil and canvas, titled, numbered and signed. , Titled, numbered and signed, 1918

Conrad Felixmüller's image of his wife in the forest arose shortly after the First World War, when hope and fear went hand in hand. The woman portrayed appears anxious, yet seems to be in perfect harmony with her surroundings. Like the crescent moon of the hunting goddess Diana, a golden yellow element rises above her brow.

ANDY WARHOL (Pittsburgh 1928 - 1987 New York) - Mona Lisa (Four Times), Silkscreen ink / Lwd., Circa 1979 ANDY WARHOL (Pittsburgh 1928 - 1987 New York) , cira 1979 ANDY WARHOL (Pittsburgh 1928 - 1987 New York) - Mona Lisa (Four Times), Silkscreen ink / Lwd., Circa 1979 ANDY WARHOL (Pittsburgh 1928 - 1987 New York) , cira 1979

Andy Warhol saw the original Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci, when the painting was exhibited in 1963 in Washington and New York. As Warhol had done with 20th century icons such as Marilyn Monroe, he felt compelled to work with this icon of art. The result is a fascinating work, which gives the famous face four different looks as well as bringing the Mona Lisa into the 21st century.
