The October 7th sale offers a wide range of Impressionist and Modern art to the experienced and new collector alike. Francis Picabia's Impressionist-period oil, our back cover, presents the viewer with a luxuriant autumnal landscape in brilliant October hues. Gustave Loiseau's striking scene of the Arc de Triomphe is one of several views of the French capital, including Pierre-Eugene Montezin's view of Les Halles and Jean Dufy's Place du Tertre. The sale is rich in landscapes by Albert Marquet, Albert Lebourg and Maximilien Luce. In the Modern section of the sale, drawings by Jean Arp, Pablo Picasso and Ben Nicholson and sculptures by Alexander Archipenko and Henry Moore are sure to attract attention. At the heart of the Russian section are a large group of works by Pavel Tchelitchew which come directly from the Estates of Charles Henri Ford and his sister Ruth Ford. Charles Henri Ford and Pavel Tchelitchew were companions for the last 20 years of Tchelitchew's life and they collaborated on the décor and costumes for the Paper Ball, a major social event at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut in 1936. The Russian section is also particularly rich in paintings by David Burliuk. Among the Latin American highlights are drawings by Diego Rivera and Francisco Zuniga,and sculptures by Alicia Penalba.
