LONDON – 14 JUNE 2019 – Phillips’ June sales of 20th Century & Contemporary Art will offer works from a number of private collections, including the Miles & Shirley Fiterman Collection, property from the Estate of Ryan Brant, and property from the collection of American baseball star Alex Rodriguez. The Evening Sale, taking place on 27 June, will present 36 lots of Modern, Post-War, and Contemporary Art, and will be followed by the Day Sale on 28 June, comprising 160 lots.

Luc Tuymans’s Schwarzheide, 1986, leads this season’s Evening Sale with unparalleled conceptual and historical significance. The painting – essentially a landscape depicting a line of sparse pine trees – appears to present an innocuous subject. However, taking its name after a World War II concentration camp, Schwarzheide belongs to a cycle of works that Tuymans commenced in the latter half of the 1980s, touching on themes of loss and violence in the context of the Holocaust. Tuymans has said of the work, “I wanted to make my paintings look old from the start, which is important because they are about memory.”Having resided in the same private collection since its execution, the work has been exhibited extensively over the last three decades, including showings at Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, The Tate Modern in London, the Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, and at Documenta IX in Kassel in 1992. It has recently been reproduced as an immense marble mosaic at the Palazzo Grassi, Venice, on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition La Pelle.

Worth a trip to to see "The Van Gogh and the Sunflowers" at the Van Gogh Museum June 12-September 1 2019! Book your tickets !!!

Zonnebloemen_uitsnede_PB_LR.jpgCreditline: Vincent van Gogh, Sunflowers (detail), 1889. Oil on canvas, 95 × 73 cm. Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam (Vincent van Gogh Foundation). 
If you have already registered for this opening, please find this email as not sent. 

Dear journalist,

We are pleased to invite you to the press preview of Van Gogh and the Sunflowers.

Sunflowers (1889), one of Vincent van Gogh’s best-known paintings, will be the centrepiece of the summer exhibition Van Gogh and the Sunflowers. The presentation will highlight the flower’s significance to the painter and what he hoped to achieve with his Sunflowers. Van Gogh himself thought that this work was among the best things he had done.
A great deal of study has been devoted to the masterpiece from the Van Gogh Museum’s collection in recent years. The exhibition will show what the latest technical research has contributed to our knowledge of Van Gogh’s working methods, the discolouration of certain pigments and the painting’s conservation history and current condition. The public will also have a first opportunity to see the back of the masterpiece, including the wooden strip that Van Gogh himself added to create more space for the sunflowers.

Andrea Bersaglieri finishes her residency at Shoebox Projects with te(r)ra desideratum a one day exhibition of brand new work

660 South Avenue 21 #3, Los Angeles 90031
Sunday, June 16, 2019 3 – 6 PM
Humans have a predetermined aesthetic preference for nature. It is an evolutionary remnant. But the formal, conceptual, emotional relationship between urbanites and nature is fraught with contradictions. These contradictions are the inspiration for Andrea Bersaglieri's Artist-in-residence exhibition, te(r)ra desideratum, at Shoebox Projects, May 27 to June 16.

The trees, the shrubs and grasses, were nearly all planted here by someone in an attempt to simulate the ideal savannah. We know that, but their presence still stirs our ingrained unshakable appreciation of the aesthetic. They have become our “substitute nature”. The context in which we experience nature seems to amplify its importance. The mundane frameworks within which nature manages to exists here concentrates its beauty and power.

Going from tree to plant to weed to soil looking for, looking at, trying to understand. Bersaglieri uses traditional observational drawing methods in an effort to record this evolution and understand it.

Please join us for the closing reception of te(r)ra desideratum on June 16, 3-6pm.

Andrea Bersaglieri was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area and came to Southern California to attend California State University, Long Beach where she earned an MFA in Drawing and Painting in 1991. She has lived, worked and studied in Florence, Rome, and Philadelphia. Andrea teaches Drawing and Painting at Cerritos College and California State University, Long Beach. Her most recent work deals with our earnest, often misguided attempt to encourage, yet control nature in suburban Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited locally, nationally and internationally.

Of course the NYT headline at the time focused on how the helmeted, armed police were affected, rather than the couple of hundred citizens who they harrassed, intimidated and beat up for being
