Sotheby's is priveleged to offer a wonderful selection of Abstract Expressionist and Color Field works from a Private Collection. Quality, above all, was keystone to this remarkable offering which includes wonderful examples by some of Contemporary Art's most towering figures. Ranging from the expressive and exquisite brushtrokes of Willem de Kooning, to the simple elegance of Jules Olitski, to the awe-inspiring color of Morris Louis, this collection was curated with a prescient, sophisticated and careful eye. Additionally, outstanding paintings by lesser known but no less important figures such as Leon Polk Smith, Ray Parker and Friedel Dzubas are represented in the collection underlining the true connoisseurship of the selection. Rounding out the group are prime examples by Ellsworth Kelly, Adolph Gottlieb and David Smith which demonstrate the depth and breadth of this truly extraordinary group.
