For those of us that cherish post-war abstract expressionism, Artnet is at present putting up an interesting online sale called Abstract paintings New York school 1940-1970, featuring 60 original works by some 50 artists, more or less associated with the school, some pre-eminent. This is the online art market at its best: highlighting a niche of the market for the benefit and enjoyment of the collector. Beyond the sheer pleasure of seeing these works together, the presentations are clear-cut, photographs good and reports on provenance and condition impeccable. Even when considering it as a commercially coloured non-event, it’s a virtual ‘group’ exhibition not to miss.
Norman Bluhm, although present in the offering of numerous galleries at the moment, possessing a Bluhm is always a thrill and why not this one. Detail (24×19.75 in):
Alexander Liberman, An interesting work by someone most known for his sculptures. A bargain for this quality. Detail from Red Tangents (11×11 in):
Robert Motherwell, Collage monotype. Detail (26×19.75 in):
