Leonor Fini (b. 1907 in Argentina) was the only woman fully inducted into the original circle of Paris Surrealists, led by Andre Breton and including Salvador Dali and Max Ernst, among others. Distinguishing characteristics of Fini’s Surrealism include the presence of female subjects as active protagonists, as well as fanciful, theatrical depiction of clothing and costumes, which were of great interest to the artist, who also designed ballet sets and costumes in midcentury Paris. Fini’s fame through the 20th century regarded her public persona as much as her painting. She dressed flamboyantly, appeared at every party of note, and generally failed to fit the mold of the proper, polite woman.
This series of lithographs produced in 1969 are associated with a poem by Baudelaire in which the main character falls in love with a beautiful burlesque dancer. References to dance and movement, and an emphasis on the sumptuous fabrics of her subjects' costumes, abound.
Use the link in bio to see all available pieces with details and pricing. Each original color lithograph is signed, and all are 14.5 x 11 inches, printed on fine paper of two varieties.

Works by Mike Sleadd in the June Exhibit include dynamic ink drawings on paper as well as a new series of mixed media works that highlight the artist’s eye for composition and intuitive mark-making. When you visit, ask to see additional works in the flat file.
See Farëna Saburi figurative works in oil and mixed media drawing on the walls through this month. These large-scale pieces represent great mastery of the subject and media, and ask viewers to consider the meaning of the body in the realm of art.
Josh George oil paintings incorporate collage in such a unique manner as to bring not only detail but great energy to his cityscapes and scenes of human interaction. See them in the June Exhibit through this month!
This painting was created in 1898 in France, in the Bearn region on February 6, judging by the inscription, bottom right recto. Likely a commissioned portrait, this piece depicts the relatively young officer at a time of battle and some upheaval -or at least transition- in the French navy. Perhaps a memento at a time of uncertainty, the style hearkens back to traditional portraiture with a focus on the likeness in individual features, in the process even inclining a bit toward folk art. Cleverot’s nuanced attention to tonal value and intricate brushwork are ultimately timeless, contributing to an intriguing and beautiful historical work.
The painting was revarnished in 1898 and does carry some signs of wear, most notably two abrasions within the background, all commensurate with age. It has been beautifully reframed since our acquisition.
Reach out to learn more or arrange to see this work in person!

Esterio Segura is new to the Sager Reeves roster but well-established and world-renowned for his witty, expertly-crafted sculpture, drawing, and painting. A tightly curated selection of his recent works spanning various media graces the May Exhibit through the 27th. Must-see; must discuss.

Santiago Olazábal is a master of dynamic composition and symbolic mark-making. His works deal with ritual and reverence in his religious practice, but at their core these paintings handle ideas of connection and relationship. Each line, body position, sewn-in object, and mark relates his subjects to each other and their environments.
See Santiago’s work in the May Exhibit through the 27th, or request a pdf catalog by DM any time.

You’ve seen the large-scale figurative scenes of Cuban painter and previous Artist-in-Residence Andy Llanes Bultó. It’s always remarkable when an artist’s skill with their chosen subject matter and media translates in scale - not an easy feat. Through May, an entirely new series by this prodigious young artist is on the walls, beautifully rendered and small-scale, just 13 x 11 inches each.

Josef Albers (b.1888, Germany ) built legacies as an artist, designer, and teacher, and may be familiar to any former student of art or design (even if for only one, introductory class) as the author of the seminal Interaction of Color (1963, Yale University Press). Before his professorship and writing at Yale, he’d been among the original faculty of the Bauhaus school of design in Germany, and taught at the legendary, experimental Black Mountain College upon immigrating to the U.S. He developed, in both his curricula and his own work, notions of optical illusion, relative experience of color and form, and the intersection of function and design. In the 1960s as he delved into printmaking as a direct artistic medium alongside his partner Anni Albers, he created a series of inkless prints as an exploration of line, shape, and form, completely absent color and value. He called these compositions Embossed Linear Constructions, or E.L.C.s, and produced them by hand in limited edition, signing, dating, and numbering each delicately in pencil.

New contemporary Cuban exhibit is on the walls - ready for member previews this week and our #firstfriday opening, this Friday 6-8 PM!
@andyllanesbulto has been on our roster of represented artists since 2017 and was our first artist-in-residence in 2019. Brand new figurative works are small scale, classically astute in exactly the way we’ve come to expect of this impressive young artist.
