Coming Up: Clarke Auction- Oct. 27

Clarke Auction will offer an incredible array of important and finely executed works by artists of historical note on October 27th. The featured work in the fine art selection is oil on canvas Parisian scene entitled “Ponte Marie” by famed Parisian cubist painter, Francis Picabia (1879 -1953).
Picabia’s “Ponte Marie” is an exciting and historically valuable work due to the technique and manner in which its context is expressed. Classically trained, Picabia played a role in the Dada movement after a brief transition through post-impressionism at the turn of the century between 1902 and 1908. Picabia’s “Ponte Marie” at Clarke Auction is a fine example from the artist’s post-impressionist phase that displays his early developments as an emerging artist.
