LITHOGRAPHS

13001. LANTERN ON THE OLD WOOD BARN. by Robert Sarsony. American (1938-). Lithograph, print number 40 of 100. Signed and numbered in pencil by the artist. The print 20 x 30 inches on 26 x 35 inch heavy acid free paper, Generally excellent condition. Provenance: Purchased at an upscale estate sale in the 1990's. Signature. Print number.

Robert Sarsony is a well known American artist and lithographer currently residing in North Carolina. He began exhibiting in local shows in New Jersey in 1963. The following year he made his New York debut in a group show at Allied Artists. From 1969 until about 1974 he did a series of paintings based on book and magazine illustrations - "Pop antiques," he calls them - from the 1920's through the 1940's. Subjects ranged from silent movie photographs and pictures of important historical events to reproductions taken from period children's books. In the corners of his canvases Sarsony often paints small images copied from cards found in cigarette packages and cereal boxes during the first half of this century. In doing so he follows in the steps of the nineteenth-century trompe l'oeil artists who depicted visiting cards that looked as though they were tucked under the edges of their paintings' frames. More recently Sarsony has portrayed figure and landscape subjects with an attention to light effects that gives his canvases an impressionistic air.

Provenance: A private American collection. Acquired at auction, c. early 2000.

Three Peter Fendi color lithographs said to be from the erotic collection of Julius Streicher, the Nazi Gauleiter (Governor) of Bavaria.

10947. PETER FENDI (1796 - 1842), EROTIC COLOR LITHOGRAPH. 6.5 x 10.5 inches on a 12 x 16 inch sheet, Embossed circular mark with a rooster and shield bottom left. Excellent condition. The work much better than the photograph shows. Three others from this series published pps. 146/7 in 'Erotica II, Hill and Wallace" 1993.

Peter Fendi was court engraver to the Habsburg Court in Vienna, Austria and was a member of The Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. He was one of the leading artists of the Biedermeier period. Multicolor prints by Fendi are considered pioneering achievements in the field of lithography. They are all very rare because most of his erotic works are privately owned and rarely seen. His works are owned by the Hermitage, the Albertina Museum, The Austrian Gallery in the Belvedere, Kunsthistorisches Museum and in the collections of the Prince of Liechtenstein in Vaduz. More information.

Provenance: A private American collector. Acquired at auction in the 1980's in Manhattan. Said to be from the collection of Julius Streicher, the Nazi Gauleiter of Bavaria at Nuremberg.
