Augusta Savage, the first African American to open her own art gallery

When Augusta Savage arrived in New York at the height of the Harlem Renaissance, she only had a few dollars in her pocket. However, she quickly found herself in the company of the prominent writers and activists of the 1920s, including W.E.B. Du Bois and Marcus Garvey. Savage joined them while simultaneously combating poverty and racism. A plaster edition of Savage’s well-known Gamin was offered in the Two-Day Fine Art, Antique, & Jewelry Auction, presented by Case Antiques. Her work, though often overlooked, captured a distinct era of American history. As the first African American woman to open her own art gallery, Savage divided her time between creating art and supporting the next generation Savage was born to a devout Methodist minister who “almost whipped all the art out of [her].” Despite this difficult start, Savage was relentless in her pursuit of education. In 1923, she applied to a summer art program in France. Though accepted into the program and corresponding scholarship, the French government refused her after learning she was Black. “As soon as one of us gets his head above the crowd there are millions of feet ready to crush it back again…”. Savage wrote in her public response, which was printed in the New York World. “For how am I to compete with other American artists if I am not to be given the same opportunity?” It took six years of activism, but Savage was eventually permitted to study in France. That struggle permanently fused her ideals with Augusta Savage art, which explores the African American experience in the Jim Crow era. During the Great Depression, Savage found work by running an art school and creating portrait busts of her fellow African American activists. However, Roberta Smith, writing for The New York Times, identifies the artist’s portraits of everyday people as her strongest works: “Savage’s radicalness lies in her determination — one shared with many Black artists today — to populate art with active representatives of Black life.” She created her most famous portrait of a young African American boy, titled Gamin, with that goal in mind. Modeled after her nephew, the bust was intended to represent the countless young boys who populated the streets of her city. Savage could not afford bronze when she made the piece, instead using white plaster, brown paint, and shoe polish. “What’s so remarkable about this work is that, quite simply, it presented an African American child in a realistic and humane fashion,” says Wendy N.E. Ikemoto, the coordinator of a recent exhibition of Savage’s work at the New-York Historical Society. A plaster and bronze patina version of Gamin will soon come to auction with Case Antiques. The title of the work is carved on the boy’s chest, and it is signed by the artist on the back. Bids will begin at USD 3,400 against a presale estimate of $7,000 to $8,000. In several past events, the Augusta Savage sculptures reached well above those figures. John Moran Auctioneers sold an edition of the piece for $35,000 in 2007, and it was more recently auctioned for $68,750, more than twice the high estimate.

According to CNBC reporter Robert Frank, NFTs have evolved from a speculative sideshow to a real asset class. Beeple is its main influencer. Beeple also appeared on the television program for a live interview following the auction results. Christie's captured footage of Beeple watching the NFT auction conclude in the segment's beginning. Jon Fortt, the show's host, announced at the start of the segment that the segment almost broke the art internet yesterday. A good deal of the interview was framed as a feel-good story with a few questions about the future of NFTs. As part of the interview, host Jon Fortt pitched NFTs as an "alternative asset class" for millennials and Generation Z, echoing Robert Frank's remarks on the same program. Beeple responded with his own pitch, positioning NFTs as an "alternative asset class" for millennials and Generation Z. During the interview, Beeple also mentioned the possibility of NFTs being a market bubble on the verge of bursting.

Artist Jorge Marín

One of the most prominent voices of contemporary Mexican sculpture is Jorge Marín, an artist who has worked to blur the division between public and private art. Alas de México, the best-known facility located in Mexico City, gathered international attention after becoming a symbol of freedom, freedom and resistance. Marín has passed a career exploring those topics. Born the youngest of ten children, a young Marín moved from a small town of Michoacán to Mexico City. He was given a significant freedom to pursue an artistic career, then gaining degrees in graphic design and art art restoration. Once Marín discovered bronze, however, he cemented an interest in the sculpture that would last more than 30 years. The main figures in Jorge Marin sculpture are human bodies balanced in acrobatic positions. Many have extended the wings and masks of the macabre peaks that remind pest doctors. This balance between the light and dark elements can be partially attributed to the fantastic Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch, who Marín quotes between his influences. Despite the nuances of Moody to the sculptures of him, the artist saw them, not as angels or demons, but as extensions of humanity. Marín spoke about his winged figures in a 2017 interview with Vice: "We do not like a government, we are going to change it, we do not like corruption, we no longer accept it ... the wings serve to remind us of the great skill we have to fly No fantasy is so great that we can not see it. " The next sale of Morton Auctions will have engraved angel (engraved angel), a bronze sculpture that includes each key piece of Marín style. It represents a curly figure around a polished black sphere. The wings of it spread in a dramatic form 'V' behind him. While sculpture looks mysterious with his surprising form and his symmetry, the figure is dyed sadness: it seems to be crying behind his bird mask. This sculpture has a prior estimate of MXN of 160,000 to $ 200,000 (USD 7,470 - $ 9,337). Because he has made a concerted effort to maintain his work of public art, few of the sculptures of Marín arrive at the auction block. However, there is a greater interest in his work, especially after the sculpture of Alas de México left viral in 2010. His art flew under the auction radar before then, a sculpture of Acrobat sold by USD 3,250 in A Sale of Christie 2009. Many parts of Marín are now regularly $ 10,000 or more on the auction. Split in one hand, for example, sold with Morton auctions in May 2020 for USD 16,246. The price was more than three times the high estimate.
