Contemporary + Modern: Art & Design by Circle Auction

Auction Description

The Bill & Ellen Morgan collection of early Nicolas Africano works offers a rare and far-reaching view of one of contemporary American art's deeply unique voices, a document of Africano's process and journey. As a Illinois State University professor emeritus and member of the arts community of Normal, IL, Bill Morgan had the opportunity to collect dozens of Nicolas Africano works, from his time as an undergraduate through his career as an internationally recognized artist. Among the other auction highlights is a collection of contemporary French street art, including works by Brusk, Kan, Fenx, Victor Ash, and Zest. Selections of mid-century modern furniture are headlined by an exceptional group of Charles and Ray Eames designs for Herman Miller. Also on offer are works by Helen Frankenthaler, Imi Knoebel, Rufino Tamayo, Jonathan Green, Jim Dine, Jenny Pohlman and Sabrina Knowles.
