Marine Van Shoonbeek's Picks

Louise Nevelson
Estimate: 70,000 – 100,000 EUR
Louise Nevelson
Marine Van Schoonbeek: "I am fascinated by Louise Nevelson’s avant-garde assemblages which I had the chance to closely study when I was working at the Chicago MCA. This sculptor, who was a pupil of Hans Hoffmann and Diego Rivera, broke free from the codes of her time by abandoning color in favor of raw material."
Sam Francis
Estimate: 45,000 – 55,000 EUR
Sam Francis
Marine Van Schoonbeek: "How not to select such an appealing composition by one of the greatest masters of abstract expressionism which obviously marks a major turning point in twentieth century art history and whose radical gestural works are today taking their rightful place!"
Ulla Von Brandenburg
Estimate: 4,000 – 6,000 EUR
Ulla Von Brandenburg
Marine Van Schoonbeek: "This work echoes to a theme dear to this great artist's heart that is central to "The middle is blue", a permanent installation at the Palais de Tokyo echoing our need of dramatization. It also reminds me of Caldéron's major play, The Grand Theater of the World."
Théo Mercier
Estimate: 6,000 – 8,000 EUR
Théo Mercier
Marine Van Schoonbeek: "I was really impressed by his exhibition at the Musée de la chasse in 2019 entitled Every Stone Should Cry. His works reveal the tensions existing between man and nature which were also amazingly staged by Laurent Le Bon in another great show entitled Cabinets de curiosités at the Hélène and Edouard Leclerc foundation last summer."

Contemporary Art | Paris features works from some of the most important female artists from the Post-war and contemporary eras such as Louise Nevelson, Louise Bourgeois and Kiki Smith.
