with host artist Miriam Schulman
It’s going to be a busy fall in the art auction world.
In this podcast, you will discover…
Paul Allen’s Art Collection Headed to Auction
The late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, was an avid art collector and it’s all going to auction. It’s valued at 1 billion dollars.
What can you get? One of my favorites is Gustav Klimt’s Birch Trees. It inspired me for more than one of my collage musical tree paintings.
You could also grab Georgia O’Keeffe’s White rose and works from Agnes Martin and Louise Bourgeois.
There doesn’t seem to be a recession when it comes to major collectors. This is expected to sell for the highest ever in art-auction history.
Grace Hartigan and the Ninth Street Women
Her work received new attention when it was part of an exhibit in Denver. She was also featured in the book Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art.
Elaine and Willem de Kooning
Elaine de Kooning was an accomplished landscape and portrait artist active in the Abstract Expressionist movement of the mid-twentieth century.
I knew about Willem and Elaine de Kooning, but I wasn’t aware that they had such a turbulent history. The couple had what was later called an open marriage; they both were casual about sex and about each other’s affairs. They separated for years to reunite again later in life.
Elaine’s art reflected the turbulence similar to today’s world of conflict and uncertainty. You can find out more about her influences in the book Ninth Street Women: Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, and Helen Frankenthaler: Five Painters and the Movement That Changed Modern Art.

Wonderful podcast for artists at all levels
I started painting (again, after a 20 year hiatus) last year. And Miriam’s podcast was the first art podcast that really captured my attention! I particularly like her interviews with writers. She has a knack for finding the most interesting authors and interviewing them about creativity. I’ve even bought a couple of their books after being introduced to them in this podcast! Thank you Miriam 🙂
