Seeking Fantasy

The Surrealism and Magic Realism auction will be held on March 30, 2021 at the Desa Unicum auction house. Works by leading representatives of fantasy art such as: Zdzisław Beksiński, Rafał Olbiński, Tomasz Sętowski, Jacek Yerka and Maria Anto will be auctioned off.

 

Several dozen works characterized by oneiric stylistics, proving the intense work of the imagination of their authors will be put up for auction.  The auction will include early works by a icon of surrealism - Zdzisław Beksiński. His early canvas depicting a headless woman in a hellish setting will be put up for sale. This is one of the examples of Beksiński's paintings, where it can be seen that he was able to create controversial visions unhampered by convention and principles of aesthetics. During the auction it will also be possible to buy the canvas by Rafał Olbiński "Cities of the world". In his characteristic way, the painter combined, in a fantastic manner, architectural motifs from many world metropolises. The performance created by Olbiński has an element of absurdity - which could be seen in other works by the author. The entirety of the presented architecture floats ... on the back of a fish.

 

For the upcoming auction, we are still looking for works by artists such as:  Zdzisław Beksiński, Wojtek Siudmak, Jerzy Duda-Gracz, Erna Rosenstein, Maria Anto, Kazimierz Mikulski, Jacek Szynkarczuk, Tomasz Alen Kopera, Karol Bąk, Maksymilian Novák-Zempliński, Jarosław Jaśnikowski.
