George Luks - Blue Devils on Fifth Avenue

ESTIMATE: $600.00-$700.00. Artist: George Luks - Title: Blue Devils on Fifth Avenue - Medium: Fine Art Giclee on Canvas - Image Size: Approximately 27.75 inches x 32 inches - Framed: Unframed on Unstretched Canvas - Biography: Luks painted working-class subjects and scenes of urban life, the hallmarks of Ashcan realism, with great gusto. "Hester Street" (1905), in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum, captures Jewish immigrant life through Luks's vigorously painted representation of shoppers, pushcart peddlers, casual strollers, and curious onlookers of the ethnic variety that characterized turn-of-the century New York. Luks's work typifies the real-life scenes painted by the Ashcan School artists. Hester Street also demonstrates Luks' ability to effectively manipulate crowded compositions and to capture expressions and gestures as well as gritty background details. Allen Street (1905) and Houston Street (1917) are equally successful in this sense. The Lower East Side was a rich source of visual material for George Luks.

Valmier,are available as a group or individually. Born and educated in France, Georges Valmier was a pioneer of the Cubist Movement. He studied with Luc-Olivier Merson at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts from 1905 to 1909. As early as 1911, he adapted the Cubist designs for practical application such as futuristic decorations for Marinetti’s theater. He exhibited his works in Paris at the Salon des Indépendants. In 1932 Valmier joined the Abstraction-Creation group, and in this later period of his career created three large panels for the French railway SNCF company’s pavilion at the International Exhibition of 1937 in Paris. Valmier was also an accomplished musician, and this love comes forth clearly in works throughout his career. In fact, beginning in 1919, he began giving his paintings musical titles such as Improvisation and Scherzo. Collections: Solomon R.
