Ben Schonzeit "Two Protea" Large Acrylic On Canvas 1989 (signed)

Evan Lobel

Schonzeit 250 acrylic 60 x 40 painting148 main.jpg

Large original acrylic on canvas "Two Protea" by Ben Schonzeit, American 1989, signed and dated on reverse with gallery label that reads: (Ben Schonzeit “Two Protea, Acrylic on canvas excecuted in 1989). The photorealistic flowers are emblematic of Schonzeit’s work. The dark figures are from his Comedia series done in the late-1980’s.

Ben Schonzeit is internationally recognized as a pioneer of the Photorealist Movement (1970's) along with artists such as Richard Estes, Chuck Close, Robert Bechtle and Malcolm Morley. However, Schonzeit sets himself apart from this movement by choice and depiction of subject matter. Schonzeit’s canvases were filled with highly magnified fruits, vegetables and flowers sometimes reproduced in a deliberately skewed, out of focus manner. Schonzeit's aesthetic is clearly informed by the concurrent movements of Pop, that of color field painting, whose concerns were more formal. Schonzeit uses familiar objects as a vehicle to explore issues of color, form, content, and abstraction. He is a prolific artist who embraces imagination as opposed to observation; the invented rather than the depicted. Schonzeit is concerned with narrative color, abstraction, intellectual experience, drama and beauty. His work speaks of sensation, nostalgia, memory, relationships and associations unique to each viewer and each viewing.

Schonzeit was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1942. He is a graduate of The Cooper Union. He has exhibited widely both here and abroad since 1969. Schonzeit is a leading representative of the so-called Photo-Realists, who use photographs rather than reality as a basis for their paintings. Schonzeit has also created works on paper from life and his imagination using a variety of mediums such as pen & ink, brush, and watercolor. His paintings, drawings, and photographs are included in the collections of many important museums around the world including The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, The Basel Kunstmuseum, The Denver Art Museum, and The Brooklyn Museum.

Elger Esser Large Framed Photograph "Enfeh II, Lebanon" 2005 (Signed)

Evan Lobel

Esser 350 Cprint diasec enfeh 2 infosheet.jpg

Large framed photograph “Morgenland” (Morning Land Series), “Enfeh II, Lebanon” by Elger Esser, German 2005. C-print on Diasec Face. Label on the back that reads (Elger Esser, Enfeh II, Lebanon 2005. 1/7 ).

 Elger Esser is a German artist known for his photography of nature and the landscapes are central themes throughout Elger Esser’s photographic oeuvre. Often in muted, sepia or monochromatic colors, his works have a stillness about them that evokes a sense of the sublime. Esser’s large-format photographs typically depict European lowlands with his characteristic low horizon lines, pale luminous colors and vast skies, beaches, wetlands or seas. His skillful use of traditional processes, such as photogravure printing, gives his images an intense sharpness, depth and luminosity. Inspired by the literary works of Gustave Flaubert, Marcel Proust and Guy de Maupassant, paintings of the Romantic period, and early nineteenth-century photography. Elger Esser’s works originate from the travels he has undertaken since 1996, across France, Italy, Spain, Scotland, Ireland, the Netherlands, the USA, and Australia.

Keith Sonnier Tullos Monumental Drawing on Paper 1996 (signed)

Evan Lobel

_MG_7638-Recovered 1.jpg

Keith Sonnier monumental “Tullos” (Cat Doucet Series), charcoal colored flocking on rag, 1996. Signed with Keith Sonnier initials and year on the drawing, original Leo Castelli galery label on the back that reads ( KS (D-156) Keith Sonnier TULLOS, 1996 charcoal, colored flocking on rag paper 93 1/2 x 631/2 “ ).
Keith Sonnier is a contemporary American artist known for his pioneering light sculptures. Employing materials such as latex, neon, and found objects, Sonnier achieves a drawing-like quality with his sculptures. “I love light in my work but I was never influenced by neon signage in itself, rather its effect on nature and architecture,” he has explained. Born on July 31, 1941 in Mamou, LA, he received his BA from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in 1963, and his MFA from Rutgers University in 1966. It was during his time at Rutgers, that Sonnier fell under the influenced of Robert Morris. By the late 1960s, he along with his peers Bruce Nauman and Dan Flavin, had begun employing neon tube lights in their work. Over the years, he has incorporated materials used by other cultures into sculptural installations. Sonnier currently lives and works between New York, NY and Bridgehampton, NY. Today, his works are held in the collections of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra, among others.
