Auction Archive Finds - Winter 2011



Max Koch (1859-1930) Bathers
*

Here are the last postings of Auction House archives and a few current listings. There is one contemporary work, Nancy Grossman's "Figure with Folded Arms" that really got my attention in her use of materials and color in that work. Hans von Bartels' (1856-1913) "Farm Boy working in the Field" really hit me with his use of texture, motion, and color. Enjoy.
