Di Donna Galleries has released its packing list for Art Basel, Switzerland taking place June 13–16, which includes a selection of paintings, sculptures, and works on paper by 20th-century masters:
- Constellation with Bottles (1943), a rare example from Alexander Calder’s “Constellation” group of small wood sculptures made during World War II when metal was scarce, which displays his ties to Surrealist biomorphism.
- An oversized gilt apple by Claude Lalanne, Pomme de Londres (2007; cast 2013).
- A drawing by Salvador Dalí of Leda Atomica (1947), an interpretation of a classical theme in the age of modern warfare that the artist made in preparation for a famous oil painting now at the Dalí Museum in Figueres, Spain.
- Tom Wesselmann’s Seascape #2 (1965), a painting celebrating the female body.
- Femme à la rose (1936), a painting by Paul Delvaux that renders a dreamlike scene that implies a mysterious narrative within an ambiguous spatial environment.
The gallery will also present significant works Alexander Archipenko, Victor Brauner, Max Ernst, Emil Filla, Philip Guston, Auguste Herbin, Wassily Kandinsky, Richard Lindner, Matta, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Wolfgang Paalen, and Antoni Tápies.
