Saloua Raouda Choucair (Lebanese, 1916-2017) attr. Modern Painting

Artist: Saloua Raouda Choucair (Lebanese, 1916-2017), Attributed to. Title: Medium: Oil on panel Size: 12‰Û x 16‰Û approximate panel size (30 x 42 centimeter) Date: 1951 Provenance: A Miami private collection Saloua Raouda Choucair, born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1916 was a pioneer of abstract modern art in the Arab world. Notably one of the rare female artists in the Arab world, Choucair was highly experimental, working in an elegant style of abstraction, unleashing her creativity across multiple mediums and materials in painting and sculpture. Choucair‰Ûªs small-scale geometric paintings reflect a distinctive, highly refined understanding of line, form and materials. It is only in recent years that Choucair‰Ûªs work has been ‰ÛÏre-discovered‰Û by the international art community, starting with a show at the Tate Modern in London in 2013, as well as Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Whitechapel Gallery in London and the Haus der Kunst in Munich. Saloua Choucair helped found the Arab Cultural Center in Beirut, and in 1947 exhibited at its gallery in what was often cited as the first showing of modern abstract art in the Arab world. That year she left for Paris to study at the Ìäcole des Beaux-Arts, whose traditionalist training she supplemented with classes at the more freewheeling AcadÌ©mie de la Grande Chaumi̬re. After hearing the painter and sculptor Fernand LÌ©ger speak at the Ìäcole des Beaux-Arts, she spent time at his studio before coming into her own as an early member of L‰ÛªAtelier d‰ÛªArt Abstrait (the Studio of Abstract Art), led by Edgar Pillet and Jean Dewasne. Choucair developed a series of jewel-like small paintings of interlocking geometric forms that she exhibited with the Salon des RÌ©alitÌ©s Nouvelles, founded by Sonia Delaunay and Nelly van Doesburg. In 1951 she had a solo show at the Galerie Colette Allendy, before returning to Lebanon. This lot appears to be an early experimental work produced during the artist‰Ûªs Paris period.Read more

William G. Congdon Italian Modern Oil Painting

Artist: William G. Congdon (American 1912-1998) Title: Medium: oil on wood panel Size: 13 1/2” x 21” inches (34.2 x 53.3cm) Date: 1950 circa Provenance: Gift of the artist to Laetitia Cerio, Capri 1950’s, by descent to her son, Fernando Alvarez de Toledo, Duke of Bivona and Count of Caltabellotta, then by descent to the current consignors. William G. Congdon William Grosvenor Congdon (1912-1998) was associated with the “New York School” Abstract Expressionists of the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, starting with his first one-man show at the Betty Parsons gallery in 1949. The show was positively reviewed by art critic, Clement Greenberg who was impressed by Congdons use of color to evoke “real painterly emotion”. Congdon showed alongside Clifford Still in 1950, and his association with Betty Parsons gallery lasted over 20 years. At the peak of his success in the early 1950’s, Congdon, becoming more interested in spirituality, turned his back on “The American Dream”, moving to Venice, Italy. Venice became a source of endless inspiration for Congdon’s paintings which were extensively collected by Peggy Guggenheim. “William Congdon is the only painter since Turner, who has understood Venice, its mystery, its poetry and its passion. He has a modern way of expressing himself, but his insight is as old as the city itself. He has been able to gather up the emotional essence of many centuries and has melted this vision into such a fantastic and beautiful dream that his paintings leave one breathless.” - Peggy Guggenheim 1953 Just as fascinating as the paintings being offered is their trans-Atlantic provenance. The painting in this collection were originally gifted by Congdon to fellow artist Letizia Cerio (1908-1997), of Capri, during the 1950’s. Letizia Cerio, an artist talented in her own right (Graham Greene remarked, “There is only one painter of Capri: Letizia Cerio, in whose paintings there is magic in the air”) often painted alongside Congdon during his travel in Italy. The paintings of Venice were likely given in the traditional artist exchange during these trips. The Cerio family, one of the oldest and most renowned on Capri, were famous for hosting all the leading figures of the 20th century who came to the island: from Maxim Gorky and Lenin, to Jackie Kennedy Onassis, and Alexander Calder. The Cerio family’s branch extended to Newport, Rhode Island and Boston and as a result Letizia formative years were spent in Newport and Boston society. Letizia married Ramiro Alvarez de Toledo, Count of Caltabellotta, and Duke of Bivona, moving to Argentina as the Second World War began, before finally settling in Concord, Massachusets, with their son, Fernando. Fernando Alvarez de Toledo, who inherited his father’s titles, Duke of Bivona and Count of Caltabellotta, became a protege of Joseph Albers at Yale University, and a leading industrial designer and pioneer of medical device technology with 39 patents, and a career that spanned the globe. The Congdon painting collection, was inherited by Fernando, and after his passing last year, passed by descent to the current consignors.Read more
