It is a fabulous work whose ghost-like figures standing before an orange and red bent pole on a beach near rippling water is an extremely beautiful abstraction. It might be just a sketch, but thank goodness it was never completed as it is perfect as is and no abstraction ever since can match it for stunning beauty and deft composition!

It is the finest work to be offered at auction this season!

It has an extremely modest estimate of $70,000 to $90,000. It sold for $86,500 including the buyer's premium as do all results mentioned in this article.

Lot 320, "Spiritual Pleasures," by Rudolf Bauer, oil on canvas, 51 1/4 inches square, 1933-8


Lot 320 is a Bauer oil on canvas from 1933-8 entitled "Spiritual Pleasures."  It is 51 1/4 inches square.

The catalogue provides the following commentary:

"German-born Rudolf Bauer was a principal innovator and exponent of Non-objective painting, the term favored by Solomon R. Guggenheim himself to describe autonomous abstractions from lyrical expressionism to geometric constructivism.   Bauer began his career in Berlin at the onset of World War I, becoming a prominent figure in the avant-garde circle at Herwarth Walden's famed Galerie Der Sturm alongside fellow luminaries Paul Klee, Franz Marc and Wassily Kandinsky.  It was the latter artist who influenced Bauer the most, and their shared passion for spiritualism and musically-derived improvisation in art led them to collaboratively refine their styles and theories and exhibit together often through the late 1910s and early 1920s....Bauer's daring new brand of abstraction was first exposed to the American public in1920 when the renowned collector and Societé Anonyme co-founder Katherine Dreier purchased a major oil at Der Sturm and exhibited it in New York to rave reviews.  Despite these early accolades, Bauer's true success came seven years later when copper magnate and then-fledgling art collector Solomon Guggenheim was shown works by Bauer and Kandinsky by German art advisor and future Guggenheim Foundation director Hilla Rebay.  Guggenheim was enthralled by the vanguard genius of Non-objective art, and then devoted himself to building what is now one of the world's greatest modern art collections around the primacy of Bauer and Kandinsky....Guggenheim acquired hundreds of Bauer's works over the years and in 1939 went so far as to preemptively purchase the artist's entire estate.  He filled his massive suite at the Plaza Hotel exclusively with Bauer's work, gave Bauer funds to create to create a museum devoted to Non-objective art in Gmerany and even entrusted Bauer to purchase works from other emerging European artists on his behalf.  As a result Bauer was personally responsible for selecting many of the greatest works by Kandinsky in the Guggenheim collection, through a letter from Hilla Rebay to Bauer reveals that in one case, 'Mr. Guggenheim likes the Kandinsky very much but [he likes] yours better.  He would like all your most recent works.  He is very excited and wants nothing else in his bedroom.'"

Lot 320 has an estimate of $300,000 to $400,000.  It sold for $314,500.

Self portrait by Eva Gonzales

Lot 134, "L'Espagnole (Portrait de la Modiste)," by Eva Gonzalès, pastel on canvas, 18 1/8 by 15 inches, circa 1882-3

Lot 134 is a brilliant and very ravishing pastel on canvas by Eva Gonzalès entitled "L'Espagnole (Portrait de la Modiste)."  It measures 18 1/8 by `5 inches and was created circa 1882-3.  The only pupil of Manet, she first received critical attention at the Paris Salon of 1870 when she exhibited four works and was the subject of a portrait by Manet.

The catalogue provides the following commentary:

"The relative obscuity of Eva Gonzalès is attributable to both her untimely death and to a discordant reception history.  Unwilling to exhibit with the Impressionists, Gonzalès stayed the course in the Salons with her maitre and achieved significant critical acclaim despite her lack of popularity in the eyes of the public.  Her death at the age of thirty-four left no time for a wide-sweeping survey of her life's work, which for historians and collectors today provides the breathtaking, if stilted, unveiling of an oeuvre of indeterminate size andscope....The shimming and weightless pastels on this canvas are profoundly vivacious, offering evidence of a young and energetic artist in her prime.  The continued rediscovery of Gonzalès's skillful hand seats her in the pantheon of female Impressionists Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt, while her  life's narrative inextricably links her to both the female and male masters of the era."

The lot has a modest estimate of $180,000 to $250,000. It failed to sell.

Thelot has a modest estimate of $200,000 to $300,000.  It failed to sell.

Portrait of a lady by Lautrec

Lot 384, "Portrait of Béatrice Tapié de Céleyran," by Henri Toulouse-Lautrect, oil on panel, 9 3/4 by 6 7/8 inches, 1897

Lot 143, "Femme Dans Un Intérieur," by Pierre Bonnard, oil on canvas, 19 1/8 by 18 1/8 inches, circa 1903

The catalogue entry for this lot shows a photograph of Bonnard and Vuillard at Lake Como in 1899 and provides the following commentary about this lot:

It quotes Sarah Whitfield that "the moments he chooses to paint at the soothing lulls that punctuate a domestic routine.  These are intensely private prictures."

"As is the case ofor many of Bonnard's best interior scenes, this picture requires the viewer to take time to look at the composition to make sense of the spatial relationships among its elements. Bonnard once said that he intended for his pictures 'to show what one sees when one enters a room all of a sudden' and the present picture exemplifies this objective. Jean Clair wrote of the experiene of looking at Bonnard's paintngs, asserting that the artist intended 'to paint the feeling of 'visual entirety' that one experiences on entering a room, before one has recognized, distinguished, bought into focus and identified the various details...the revolution in painting bought abut by Bonnard was that, for the first time, a painter attempted to translate onto canvas the data of a vision that is physiologically 'real....' He was the first artist to have attempted to portray on canvas the integrality of the field of vision and so bring near to the eye what classical perspective had kept at a distance."

The lot has an estimate of $250,000 to $350,000.  It sold for $266,500.
