A SPHERE AS A MEMORIAL


The works of sculptor Fritz Koenig can be admired not only in Bavaria, but all over the world. His main work is the "Large Spherical Caryatid NY", created between 1968 and 1971 for the plaza of the World Trade Center in New York. Weighing 20 tons and almost eight meters high, the bronze sculpture, better known as "The Sphere", survived the catastrophe of 9/11 and is now an important memorial. A miniature of the famous spherical caryatid will be offered by NEUMEISTER in the March auction.

Together with her husband Heinrich Hoerle, Trude-Alex (1903 - 1986) belonged to the circle of artists who were active in Cologne in the first half of the 20th century. Her gaze penetrates the viewer with clarity and determination. The color palette is reduced, strict brown and green tones lend the picture deep, subtle nuances and a restrained yet significant expressiveness. Hoerle uses them deliberately to create a certain seriousness and sobriety and to convey emotional or social messages. The use of color in his paintings often reflects the mood of the times and the turbulent political events that shaped Germany during this era. The formal stylization element in Hoerle's works, paired with sharpness and objectivity, testifies to an innovative artistic approach.


WALK TO THE MONASTERY.


 In the late summer of 1913, Wilhelm Trübner visits the old Benedictine monastery Stift Neuburg near Heidelberg, a popular meeting place and center of attraction for bourgeois salons and writers' circles at the time. He stayed there until October and was inspired by the setting. During his stay, he created a group of views of the "Terrace of Neuburg Abbey" as part of a series with different motifs around the monastery. In this version, the viewer looks through the leafy wall of the southern cloister wing on the left and the foliage wall on the right, over a hedge of flowers, towards Schlierbach, which lies on the southern bank of the Neckar. The white tower of the Protestant mountain church, built in 1910, stands out there. The work shows a precise rendering of the landscape and atmosphere in a sweeping style and reflects Trübner's engagement with French Impressionism - a movement to which he had already devoted himself intensively in his early creative years.

SPACE WONDER


Since the 1970s, Gerhard Merz has developed an artistic concept that is strongly influenced by architectural thinking. His art reflects the idea that modernism can only be continued through architectural means. He systematically explores the viability of certain architectural forms of expression, particularly those of Mies van der Rohe, and incorporates conceptual approaches from the art theory of the 1970s and 1980s. His works encompass a variety of media, including painting and sculpture as well as installations and drawings. Merz is particularly known for his minimalist and conceptual approaches to art.

This two-part painting is characterized by its monochrome design. With imposing dimensions of 250 × 700 cm, the work dominates the viewer. The chosen color, a penetrating red, plays a central role and creates an intense sensual effect. The generous dimensions of the painting allow the viewer to fully immerse themselves in the powerful presence of the red color nuances. This artistic decision not only takes up space, but also creates a haunting emotional resonance that permeates the viewer's space.

IMAGE LANGUAGE


In the thirty-part photo series "Converging Territories", Moroccan photographer and painter Lalla Essaydi addresses the complex reality of Arab female identity. From her unique perspective - her personal experience as a Moroccan woman, artist and Muslim - Essaydi defies stereotypes and goes beyond mere criticism of the Arab and Western world. Impressive and at the same time intimate, Essaydi gives the viewer an insight into the private world of the Arab woman. Oscillating between past and present, the photographer - now living in New York - returned to her homeland to photograph the limited private spaces of her childhood.

In the present photograph, Essaydi uses an impressive technique to stage three veiled young women who seem to break through the domestic space with a direct gaze. Essaydi envelops the women in Arabic calligraphy, a sacred Islamic art traditionally inaccessible to women, using henna, a decorative practice usually attributed to "women's craft". By returning to the rich tradition of calligraphy and henna art with its feminine connotations, the artist subversively explores the boundaries between public and private space, gender hierarchy and the restrictive aspects of Islamic culture. She does not see herself as a representative of all Arab women, but rather as an artist exploring a mind-expanding language that defies conventional notions of "Orientalism".

EDUARDO CHILLIDA´S VISIONS

SHOOTED. NOT SHOCKED.


 In 1925, Felixmüller and his wife Londa produced a picture book entitled ABC - a "shaken, shaken alphabet" in pictures with verses by Londa and Conrad Felixmüller. The first woodcut with a dedication page "For my children Luca and Titus......." shows Felixmüller in a self-portrait with his two children. The final sheet shows a printer (Zielinsky?) and indicates that the work was created under the artist's supervision at F. E. Boden in Dresden. A beautifully colored ABC book with animal, circus, play and fairy tale scenes.

One of the few copies that Felixmüller colored by hand and signed on each sheet will be auctioned. According to Söhn, only around 10 copies were colored by the artist.

FOR FLOWER FANS


The US-American of Canadian origin questioned rigid role models and the associated marginalization of female handicrafts. In the form of oversized fans, which she provided with a stylistically pluralistic patchwork design in bold, contrasting colors, Schapiro created compositions that transcend temporal and cultural boundaries.

Miriam Schapiro's works also show how seamless the transitions - at least in terms of materials - between art and fashion are. For example, the artist uses gold or silver brocade - like Michel Goma for a two-piece ensemble of coat and dress that he designed for Lanvin (see lot 572)

A fan by Miriam Schapiro, a coat by Lanvin and the creations of Natascha Müllerschön show that the boundaries between art and fashion are fluid. Above all, it is the fantastic craftsmanship that inspires - which is another reason why NEUMEISTER enjoys auctioning top-class fashion.
