Atlanta, GA, USA, February 9, 2024 -- A 1965 offset lithograph in colors of Andy Warhol's (American, 1928-1987) iconic image of Liz (Taylor); a large 1988 oil on canvas painting by the French artist Andre Brasilier (b. 1929); and a large and important early mixed media assemblage by Radcliffe Bailey (Ga., 1968-2023) are a few expected highlights in Ahlers & Ogletree's next auction, planned for Friday, February 23rd.

The 458-lot Art Deco to Post-Modern Art & Design auction, starting promptly at 10 am Eastern time, will feature contemporary and modern art and furniture, as well as the Atlanta collection of noted interior designer Bill Stewart. It's being held live in the Ahlers & Ogletree gallery located at 1788 Ellsworth Industrial Boulevard Northwest, as well as online. Phone and absentee bids will be accepted.

Few artworks by Andy Warhol are as instantly recognizable as Liz. The offset lithograph in colors from 1965 depicts a close-up portrait of actress Elizabeth Taylor on a bright red ground. It's signed and dated '65' in ballpoint pen to the lower right margin, and is one from an edition of 300 printed by Total Color (N.Y.). The sheet size, less frame, is 23 inches by 23 inches. The estimate is $25,000-$35,000.

The oil on canvas by Andre Brasilier, titled Chant du Soir (Evening Song), is artist signed to the lower right, titled and initialed en verso. The canvas is impressive, at 38 inches by 51 inches, and the frame measures 48 inches by 61 inches. The painting should bring $25,000-$35,000. Brasilier's work is typified by a breezy lyricism, where real-life subjects are transposed into dreamlike settings.

The mixed media assemblage by the iconic Southern African American artist Radcliffe Bailey, titled The Magic City (1994,) was pulled from the outstanding private collection of Bill Stewart. It was made from a wild combination of door, carpet, beeswax, dried flowers, iron brands, collage, tar and photos. The monumental work 80 inches tall by 131 inches wide is expected to bring $20,000-$30,000.

An untitled Abstract Totem sculpture, made from carved and painted wood by the Cuban-French artist Augustin Cardenas (1927-2001), stands 61 inches tall and is monogrammed to the lower edge 'AC'. It is accompanied with graphite renderings of the sculpture, signed A. Car (est. $20,000-$30,000).

A mixed media on canvas modern polychrome still life by Ida Kohlmeyer (American, 1912-1997), an Abstract from the Duolith Series (circa 1979), is signed in graphite lower right and framed. The collage is 30 inches tall. The frame measures 47 inches tall by 34 inches wide (est. $15,000-$20,000).

A pair of Rena Dumas (French, 1937-2009) and Peter Coles (French, 1955-1985) reclining outdoor pear adjustable lounge chairs for Hermes 'Pippa', designed in 1983, with cowhide Clemence bullcalf leather, on canted legs and with stamped marks to both, will be sold as one lot (est. $10,000-$20,000).

A sheet copper and wire Hinged Poem Dress #3 by Lesley Dill (American, b. 1950), 62 inches tall by 22 inches wide, is embedded with a quote from Catalan poet Salvador Espriu (1913-1985). It reads: "I have given my whole life to words / Chewed this dog hunger into a long meal" (est. $8,000-$16,000).

A mixed media artwork by Todd Murphy (Ga., 1962-2020), titled Woman with Microphone (1995), is 96 inches by 72 inches (est. $8,000-$12,000). It's ink signed, dated and inscribed. Murphy's large-scale paintings, digital prints and sculptures explored images of flora, fauna and bodily forms.

A circa 1937 painted wood and hide upholstered bench by Serge Roche (French, 1898-1988), features three hide upholstered cushions and is raised on front lion paw feet. The 74-inch-wide bench has an estimate of $10,000-$15,000. Many of Roche's creations reflect a fascination with mirrors and frames.

An untitled paint on wood and foam core rendering of a Red Shack by Beverly Buchanan (American, 1940-2015), created in 1988, is 15 inches tall (est. $8,000-$12,000).
