137. François Gall (French, 1912-1987), "Picnic in the Woods", oil on canvas, signed lower left, 19 1/2 in. x 23 1/2 in., framed. $4000/6000
Provenance: Ross L. Peacock Madison Avenue Gallery, New York, 1986.
Note: Hungarian-born Francois Gall studied at both the Accademia de Belle Arti in Rome and the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Paris before the commencement of World War II, which he spent in Hungary and Austria. Returning to Paris and becoming a naturalized citizen in 1949, Gall married and spent the remainder of his life in France. He greatly admired the work of the Impressionist painters, particularly Edgar Degas, and their influence is apparent in the painting offered here with its light palette, plein-air scenery, and careful brushwork. The woman seated on a picnic blanket appears lost in a reverie, and the dappled light is portrayed particularly well on her dress and the surrounding grass.

Note: Born in Houston, TX, Donald Roller Wilson has lived and worked in Fayetteville, Arkansas since the late 1960s. Roller Wilson creates meticulously detailed paintings with the technique and precise brushwork of 16th century Dutch masters. His subjects include finely clothed chimpanzees, dogs, cats, wooden matches, dill pickles, asparagus stalks, olives, pencils and cigarette butts. His off-the-wall characters have names such as Cookie the Baby Orangutan, Jane the Pug Girl, Jack the Jack Russell "Terror," Loretta the Actress Cat, and offered here, “Beverly.” Each one springs from the artist's vivid imagination into the viewer’s world through lengthy captions and intriguing canvases that at once captivate and baffle.

156. Ida Rittenberg Kohlmeyer (American/New Orleans, 1912-1997), "Untitled: Synthesis Series", 1982, mixed media on canvas, signed and dated mid-left, 20 1/2 in. x 21 3/4 in., framed. $7000/10000

157. Rene Portocarrero (Cuban, 1912-1985), "Head with Leaves", 1979, mixed media on paper, signed and dated lower left, 35 1/2 in. x 26 in., framed. $2000/3000
Note: Rene Portocarrero began painting at the age of 14. He enrolled in the San Alejandro Academy, but he rejected academic training as “incompatible with my temperament,” resulting in his consideration as a self-taught artist. Portocarrero traveled extensively throughout Europe absorbing Cubism and Surrealism and participating in many informal apprenticeships. He characterized his art as a constant search for a freedom of style and changed his techniques often. Portocarrero claimed to work spontaneously, never having planned a work until the brush was about to strike the canvas. There are a few consistent themes in his subject matter however, such as women, flowers, birds and mythology, of which the painting offered here is a prime example. Considered by many in Latin America to be on par with Picasso, Portocarrero is often referred to as Cuba’s greatest painter.

158. George Rodrigue (American/Louisiana, 1944-2013), "Center Stage", 1993, acrylic on linen, signed lower right, signed and titled on stretcher, 11 in. x 14 in., framed. $10000/15000
Provenance: Rodrigue Studio, Royal Street, New Orleans.

159. Clarence Millet, A.N.A. (American/New Orleans, 1897-1959), "Saturday Night, French Quarter Cafe", oil on canvas, signed lower right, 25 in. x 30 in., original painted frame. $20000/30000
Note: The only New Orleans artist who became a National Academician, Clarence Millet had a wonderful understanding of composition and color, which is clearly demonstrated in the exceptional work offered here. Saturday Night, French Quarter Café, with its jewel-tone palette and chiaroscuro, depicts a rare twilight street scene. Having often painted plein air French Quarter scenes throughout his career, Millet’s adoption of American Realism and American Scene painting styles in the early to mid-20th century, which focused on portraying accurate representations of ordinary people in their everyday lives, elevated his work and enabled him to create this masterful painting. Depicting people from different walks of life, such as the café-goers, the vegetable vendor, and the men in discussion under the street lamp, Millet captures a slice of life not often seen by visitors in the city. The placement of the figures on the street, the balcony, and in the café all perfectly lead the eye around the canvas to tell the story of a typical locals night in the Vieux Carré, elevating the scene to an iconic level.

160. Enrique Alferez (American/New Orleans, 1901-1999), "Kneeling Nude", terracotta, unsigned, h. 27 in., wood base, overall h. 29 1/4 in. $10000/15000
Note: Enrique Alferez’ classic and iconic Art Deco style punctuates the scenery of New Orleans with his sculptures in parks and public spaces throughout the city he called home for over six decades. While elegant, stylized works such as "Repose" and "Gymnast", located in the Enrique Alferez Sculpture Garden in City Park, epitomize Alferez’ technique in bronze, sculptures such as "Kneeling Nude" offered here display the artist’s skill with the textural, expressionistic shaping of terracotta. Alferez' mastery in combining modern design components with Pre-Columbian elements and an emphasis on his Mexican roots is clearly seen in "Kneeling Nude." The earth tones, as well as the texture of the woman’s skin call to mind traditional Mexican terracotta sculptures while the sensuous lines and curves of the woman’s pose exhibit the artist's talent in depicting the female form.

Note: The painting offered here is a prime example of Claude Schurr’s earlier figurative works. The Elysée Palace is presented in a three-quarter view as passersby populate the city streets in the foreground. The linear elements used to define the scene can be perceived as a precursor to the artist's later style when he adopted a brighter color palette and moved in the direction of cubism and abstraction.
