Opening this spring’s Evening Sale, BRUSHWORK II – ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE celebrates the newly globalized and interconnected post-war arena in which artists painted for the world – not just for local audiences. In their cross-cultural search for a common international language on the global ‘stage’ of abstraction, artists turned to performances, process, and dynamic synthesis of East and West.

‘Yamaguchi Takeo – Composing Monochrome’ pays respect to one of the most iconic and pioneering artists of the twentieth century. An important mentor of Lee Ufan who provided both financial and artistic support to Kim Whanki as well as countless Japanese students in the post-war period, Yamaguchi Takeo single-handedly composed a one-man monochrome symphony that heralded the 1970s wave of monochrome artists in Asia. His distinctive paintings were shown at the São Paolo and Venice Biennales, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York as early as the 1950s and 1960s. The present sale offers works spanning six decades, tracing the elegant evolution of a trailblazing legacy.
