NU D Sensual Nude Woman Mikio Watanabe Art Mezzotint

Lot # 10105 (Sale Order: 16 of 673)

"I am absolutely convinced that at the heart of all things existing in this world, there is something very simple and pure which goes beyond the complexity of appearances," says the artist Mikio Watanabe. This conviction, perhaps, is what makes Watanabe's mezzotints of the naked female form so mesmerizing: Title: "Nu D" ("Nude D") 1988 Mezzotint on Rives Numbered from a limited edition of 75, plus XV Roman Signed in pencil in the margin LR Sheet: 11 × 15 Image: 4¾ × 5½ Hinge residue top edge verso; slight creasing in the margins L Otherwise very good - excellent condition Certificate of Authenticity Watanabe creates a mezzotint by repeatedly pressing a curved, serrated mezzotint rocker over the surface of a copper plate until has received many thousands of tiny indentations from this tool. This procedure is extremely time-consuming — most of the plates take 70 - 80 hours to produce — but plates made this way yield velvety blacks that can be obtained no other way. After the entire surface of the plate has been roughened, scraper and burnishers are used to raise tones of gray and white. "During the slow process of engraving, as I scrape the burrs that I have incised on the copper plate and then polish it, the sensitivity which lies inside me can be revealed. Giving shape and light to what was before absolute darkness, I try to feel this universe of purity which exists deep inside the human body," says the artist. Mikio Watanabe (Japan, b. 1954) completed his studies in Tokyo in 1977 and settled in Paris, where he learned engraving techniques at the Atelier 17. Since 1981, Mikio Watanabe has focused on mezzotint and his works can be found in many public collections including Bibliotheque National in Paris, the Central...more

Louis Nizer (1902-1994) was an English-born Jewish American man who had many talents. He was known widely as a lawyer and author. He graduated in 1924 from the Columbia School of Law. His clients included many celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin, Mae West, and Johnny Carson. He defended those who were blacklisted during the 1950's. He wrote both words and music of songs.

DUETTO II 2 Nudes Sensuous Mikio Watanabe Art Mezzotint

Lot # 10107 (Sale Order: 18 of 673)

"During the slow process of engraving, as I scrape the burrs that I have incised on the copper plate and then polish it, the sensitivity which lies inside me can be revealed. Giving shape and light to what was before absolute darkness, I try to feel this universe of purity which exists deep inside the human body," says the artist Mikio Watanabe. Perhaps it is this deeply felt process that makes Watanabe's mezzotints so beautiful:

  • Title: "Duetto II" ("Two Bodies II")
  • 1994
  • Mezzotint on Rives de Lin Moulin du Gue paper; all four edges softly deckled
  • Numbered from a limited edition of 90, plus XXX Roman

  • Sheet: 15 × 20
  • Image: 6¼ × 8
  • Very good - excellent condition; never mounted, matted or framed

Manon Elder CROSSROADS Motorcycle Art Canvas Medium

Lot # 10114 (Sale Order: 25 of 673)

Offered here is a very handsome and collectible limited edition "Moto" art print by well-known artist Manon Elder:

  • "Crossroads"
  • Giclée on canvas
  • 20 × 44
  • Limited edition of 200
  • Signed by the artist
  • Excellent condition; never mounted, matted or framed
  • Certificate of Authenticity
This biographical information is from the artist's web site:
Manon Elder's initial travels into motorcycle art started in 2001 when the subject of a portrait sitting asked to be painted on his Harley. She obliged and was surprised by her attraction to painting chrome surfaces and mechanical intricacies. Intrigued by the relationship between motorcycle and the rider, Elder — a portrait painter for 15 years before that — saw the glimmerings of a new path open up. She found that the motorcycle culture resonated with her own desire to experience new adventures in new locations.
"In 2003, Elder had a chance to pursue this new inspiration and did so with an enthusiastic vengeance. She has immersed herself in understanding the essence of the riding experience: the relationships between the bikes, the riders and the landscapes they travel through.
"Before a photo is taken or a brush dipped in paint, Elder gets to know the riders and their bikes. She focuses on capturing the energy of the moment as well as the multitude of details that must be accurately rendered on canvas. While paintings are in progress, many of her motorcycle-rider subjects offer her guidance to ensure the authenticity of their bike's structure. Attention to detail is a hallmark of her work."
An exciting addition to any collection or décor!

Upon graduation, Sokol taught elementary school while pursuing a career as a working artist.  To his great surprise and delight, at the end of one year, and after only a few outdoor art shows, two New York art galleries offered to represent him.  Soon he was working full time as an artist. One show led to another and his list of collectors began to grow. In 1977, Sokol was introduced to Felicie. Enchanted by his paintings, she became his exclusive publisher for his limited edition graphics and exhibition posters. With her worldwide distribution to galleries, she began producing his editions. In Paris , she came up with a special embossing technique on many of his lithographs to accentuate his striking use of lines.  In New York , Felicie had Sokol work on his silk screens using enamel inks to bring out the vibrancy of his colors. She held numerous exhibitions of his paintings in her gallery, and his limited editions and posters were on view year round. One of the most distinguishing characteristics of th...more

Exciting Manon Elder RIDE WITHIN Motorcycle Art Canvas

Lot # 10130 (Sale Order: 41 of 673)

Popular "moto" artist Manon Elder created this compelling and collectible limited edition motorcycle art print:

  • "Ride Within"
  • Giclée on canvas
  • 20 × 38
  • Limited edition of 200
  • Signed by the artist
  • Excellent condition; never mounted, matted or framed
  • Certificate of Authenticity
This biographical information is from the artist's web site:
Manon Elder's initial travels into motorcycle art started in 2001 when the subject of a portrait sitting asked to be painted on his Harley. She obliged and was surprised by her attraction to painting chrome surfaces and mechanical intricacies. Intrigued by the relationship between motorcycle and the rider, Elder — a portrait painter for 15 years before that — saw the glimmerings of a new path open up. She found that the motorcycle culture resonated with her own desire to experience new adventures in new locations.
"In 2003, Elder had a chance to pursue this new inspiration and did so with an enthusiastic vengeance. She has immersed herself in understanding the essence of the riding experience: the relationships between the bikes, the riders and the landscapes they travel through.
"Before a photo is taken or a brush dipped in paint, Elder gets to know the riders and their bikes. She focuses on capturing the energy of the moment as well as the multitude of details that must be accurately rendered on canvas. While paintings are in progress, many of her motorcycle-rider subjects offer her guidance to ensure the authenticity of their bike's structure. Attention to detail is a hallmark of her work."
A wonderful addition to any collection or décor!

American artist David Salle (b.1952) first caught the attention of the art world in the early 1980s through his randomly constructed paintings employing thick application of paint along with various images. Salle states: "When people started paying attention to my work, it seemed so unlikely that somehow it wasn't so remarkable. I made my work for a small audience of friends, other artists mostly, and that has not really changed. At the same time, having shows is a way of seeing if the work resonates with anyone else."

Upon graduation, Sokol taught elementary school while pursuing a career as a working artist.  To his great surprise and delight, at the end of one year, and after only a few outdoor art shows, two New York art galleries offered to represent him.  Soon he was working full time as an artist. One show led to another and his list of collectors began to grow. In 1977, Sokol was introduced to Felicie. Enchanted by his paintings, she became his exclusive publisher for his limited edition graphics and exhibition posters. With her worldwide distribution to galleries, she began producing his editions. In Paris , she came up with a special embossing technique on many of his lithographs to accentuate his striking use of lines.  In New York , Felicie had Sokol work on his silk screens using enamel inks to bring out the vibrancy of his colors. She held numerous exhibitions of his paintings in her gallery, and his limited editions and posters were on view year round. One of the most distinguishing characteristics of the artist s work is a highly sensitive an...more

Elegant Kaoru Saito MANICURE Modern Japanese Art

Lot # 10144 (Sale Order: 55 of 673)

This elegant mezzotint is by well-known Japanese artist Kaoru Saito:

  • Title: "Manicure"
  • 1989
  • Mezzotint
  • 11¼ × 13-1/8
  • Signed and numbered from an edition of 93
  • Bright and fresh; never mounted, matted or framed
  • Certificate of Authenticity
Kaoru Saito is basically self-taught in the mezzotint process, yet he is considered to be one of its most accomplished technicians. It is an extremely difficult, labor-intensive and rarely practiced print method, including scratching hundreds, if not thousands of passes across a metal plate until the entire surface has a rough, uniform texture. The plate would print solid black if it were now run through the press. A burnishing tool is then used to rub smooth the areas which will print from gray to white. Mezzotint rewards the skilled practitioner with subtle shading and incredible graphic detail. Images in this series that include color were printed with additional, aquatint plates. Saito, now in his 70s, was born and still lives in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.

NOSTALGIA Beautiful Woman Mikio Watanabe Art Mezzotint

Lot # 10149 (Sale Order: 60 of 673)

"I am absolutely convinced that at the heart of all things existing in this world, there is something very simple and pure which goes beyond the complexity of appearances," says the artist Mikio Watanabe. This conviction, perhaps, is what makes Watanabe's mezzotints of the female form so mesmerizing: Title: "Nostalgia" 1993 Mezzotint on BFK Rives; all four edges softly deckled Numbered from a limited edition of 75, plus XXX Roman Signed in pencil in the margin LR Sheet: 15 × 22 Image: 5½ × 12½ Very good condition; LR corner lightly creased; readily matted out Certificate of Authenticity Watanabe creates a mezzotint by repeatedly pressing a curved, serrated mezzotint rocker over the surface of a copper plate until has received many thousands of tiny indentations from this tool. This procedure is extremely time-consuming — most of the plates take 70 - 80 hours to produce — but plates made this way yield velvety blacks that can be obtained no other way. After the entire surface of the plate has been roughened, scraper and burnishers are used to raise tones of gray and white. "During the slow process of engraving, as I scrape the burrs that I have incised on the copper plate and then polish it, the sensitivity which lies inside me can be revealed. Giving shape and light to what was before absolute darkness, I try to feel this universe of purity which exists deep inside the human body," says the artist. Mikio Watanabe (Japan, b. 1954) completed his studies in Tokyo in 1977 and settled in Paris, where he learned engraving techniques at the Atelier 17. Since 1981, Mikio Watanabe has focused on mezzotint and his works can be found in many public collections including Bibliotheque National in Paris, the Central Academy of Ar...more

Christine Picavet Horse Art Print: Turning Left

The subtle turning of horses on a pathway is the focus of this lovely print, portraying the gentle beauty of these animals. Artist: Christine Picavet Title: Turning Left Medium: Lithograph Image Size: 18 x 23 Sheet Size: 23 x 28 1/2 inches Signed in pencil, lower right Numbered from an edition of 600 Excellent condition; never mounted, matted or framed Certificate of Authenticity included Christine Picavet was born in 1951 in Paris, France, and grew up in Villard de Lans, a ski resort in the Alps.  Having grown up in an artistic family, and developing a passion for horses at an early age, it made sense that Picavet would become an equine artist.  After showing horses and becoming a riding instructor, Christine moved to Chantilly where she worked for the top racing stables in France while painting Thoroughbred horses. After moving to New York, she continued to work as an exercise rider, but it was here that she received her first commissions to paint famous horses.  Eventually Picavet moved to Southern California where she worked for Hall of Fame trainer Charles Whittingham while her reputation as an equine artist grew.  She married an equine veterinarian (you might say, she picked a vet), and in 1980, when expecting her son Eric, she ended a decade of riding race horses to become a full-time equine artist. After painting race horses for twenty-five years, Christine expanded her subjects to include western scenes, wildlife and animal portraits. Twice she has studied with leading Western artist Howard Terpning at the Cowboy Artists of America Museum. In 2004, the International Museum of the Horse at the Kentucky Horse Park honored the artist with a one woman show entitled, Thoroughbred Champions, Mustangs & A Cow...more

    Jonathan Lasker -Unconscious Construct Art Print

    Lot # 10180 (Sale Order: 88 of 673)

    This abstract lithograph features a modern abstract display of geometric shapes, done in a more unusual freehand drawing style. The title suggests the artist may be more concerned with creating from the unconscious, rather than geometric forms on the surface.

    • Artist: Jonathan Lasker
    • Title: Unconscious Construct
    • Date: 2002
    • Medium: Lithograph
    • Signed and numbered in pencil along with year, lower left
    • Edition size: 75
    • Size: 30 1/4" x 22 1/8"
    • Condition: Excellent
    • Retail gallery price 1,250 USD
    • Certificate of Authenticity included
      This litho print is a nice variation on the abstract form.

      Jonathan Lasker (1948- ) studied at the School of Visual Arts, New York, and California Institute of the Arts, Valencia.
      From the artist's own words:

      "A critic once wrote that my work asked the same question of its viewer that John Q. Public would ask when looking at an abstract painting. The question being, What is that supposed to be? What the critic, Stephen Westfall, meant was that although my forms are abstract, my paintings give viewers suggestions to help them perceive pictorial images in my paintings. Suggestion, of course, being the only way one sees images in a painting, even if the painting is supposedly realistic."

      Lasker's work has appeared in many group shows in the U.S. and Europe, and can be found in public collections, including MIT Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, MA, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and Wacoal Art Center, Tokyo.

    Kaoru Saito Manicure Mezzotint Fashion Lady Art Print

    Lot # 10181 (Sale Order: 89 of 673)

    This mezzotint artwork portrays a woman with a luminous gaze. The title calls attention to her fingers, which point in a different direction, giving balance to her delicate pose.

    • Artist: Kaoru Saito
    • Title: Manicure
    • Date: 1989
    • Medium: Mezzotint
    • Signed and numbered
    • Edition of 93
    • Size: 13 1/8" x 11 1/4"
    • Condition: Excellent
    • Retail gallery price 600 USD
    • Certificate of Authenticity included
      This is a stylish image, and a fine mezzotint.

      Kaoru Saito is basically self-taught in the mezzotint process, yet he is considered to be one of its most accomplished technicians. It is an extremely difficult, labor-intensive and rarely practiced print method, including scratching hundreds, if not thousands of passes across a metal plate until the entire surface has a rough, uniform texture. The plate would print solid black if it were now run through the press. A burnishing tool is then used to rub smooth the areas which will print from gray to white. Mezzotint rewards the skilled practitioner with subtle shading and incredible graphic detail. Images in this series that include color were printed with additional, aquatint plates. Saito, now in his 70s, was born and still lives in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.

    NU C Sleek Sensual Nude Mikio Watanabe Art Mezzotint

    Lot # 10187 (Sale Order: 95 of 673)

    "During the slow process of engraving, as I scrape the burrs that I have incised on the copper plate and then polish it, the sensitivity which lies inside me can be revealed. Giving shape and light to what was before absolute darkness, I try to feel this universe of purity which exists deep inside the human body," says the artist Mikio Watanabe. Perhaps it is this deeply felt process that makes Watanabe's mezzotints so beautiful:

    • Title: "Nu C" ("Nude C")
    • 1986
    • Mezzotint on BFK Rives
    • Numbered from a limited edition of 50, plus XV Roman
    • Signed in pencil in the margin LR
    • Sheet: 10 × 13
    • Image: 5 × 5
    • Tape residue top edge verso; otherwise very good - excellent condition
    • Certificate of Authenticity
    Watanabe creates a mezzotint by repeatedly pressing a curved, serrated mezzotint rocker over the surface of a copper plate until has received many thousands of tiny indentations from this tool. This procedure is extremely time-consuming — most of the plates take 70 - 80 hours to produce — but plates made this way yield velvety blacks that can be obtained no other way. After the entire surface of the plate has been roughened, scraper and burnishers are used to raise tones of gray and white.

    Mikio Watanabe (Japan, b. 1954) completed his studies in Tokyo in 1977 and settled in Paris, where he learned engraving techniques at the Atelier 17. Since 1981, Mikio Watanabe has focused on mezzotint and his works can be found in many public collections including Bibliotheque National in Paris, the Central Academy of Art, Kuala Lumpur and the New Orleans Museum of Art.

Artist: Edward Sokol Title: Ice Skaters Medium: Serigraph Image Size: 24 x 32 1/4 inches Sheet Size: 30 x 38 3/4 inches Signed and numbered Edition: 300 Excellent condition; never mounted, matted or framed Certificate of Authenticity Edward Sokol always knew he would be an artist from his first crayon drawings on the wall at age three, through his formal training at New York s High School of  Music and Art, and Hunter College , where he received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting. Upon graduation, Sokol taught elementary school while pursuing a career as a working artist.  To his great surprise and delight, at the end of one year, and after only a few outdoor art shows, two New York art galleries offered to represent him.  Soon he was working full time as an artist. One show led to another and his list of collectors began to grow. In 1977, Sokol was introduced to Felicie. Enchanted by his paintings, she became his exclusive publisher for his limited edition graphics and exhibition posters. With her worldwide distribution to galleries, she began producing his editions. In Paris , she came up with a special embossing technique on many of his lithographs to accentuate his striking use of lines.  In New York , Felicie had Sokol work on his silk screens using enamel inks to bring out the vibrancy of his colors. She held numerous exhibitions of his paintings in her gallery, and his limited editions and posters were on view year round. One of the most distinguishing characteristics of the artist s work is a highly sensitive and seemingly innate sense of color.  Whether using a palette of strong or soft colo...more

    Sensitive Kaoru Saito VIOLET REST Modern Japanese Art

    Lot # 10189 (Sale Order: 97 of 673)

    This sensitive mezzotint is by popular and avidly collected Japanese artist Kaoru Saito:

    • Title: "Violet Rest"
    • 1988
    • Mezzotint
    • 14¼ × 16-1/8
    • Signed and numbered from an edition of 93
    • Bright and fresh; never mounted, matted or framed
    • Certificate of Authenticity
    Kaoru Saito is basically self-taught in the mezzotint process, yet he is considered to be one of its most accomplished technicians. It is an extremely difficult, labor-intensive and rarely practiced print method, including scratching hundreds, if not thousands of passes across a metal plate until the entire surface has a rough, uniform texture. The plate would print solid black if it were now run through the press. A burnishing tool is then used to rub smooth the areas which will print from gray to white. Mezzotint rewards the skilled practitioner with subtle shading and incredible graphic detail. Images in this series that include color were printed with additional, aquatint plates. Saito, now in his 70s, was born and still lives in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan.
