What not to miss in Alex Cooper’s upcoming July 22nd Gallery Auction:

The upcoming auction is a Contemporary Art powerhouse.  Whether you are a novice collector or a seasoned buyer, there is something for everyone.  It’s hard to pick just five, but I’ve listed five pieces you must see.

Lot #1020: Keith Haring, Untitled for Herb Ritts, auction estimate $45,000-$50,000.

Keith Haring (1958-1990) was an American artist whose work expressed New York street culture including birth, death, sexuality and war.  The piece above was in collaboration with Herb Ritts using the artist’s ripped-up  photographs.  Although not his most recognizable style of the work, his unique collages with Ritts are extremely rare.  It is a show stopper, it’s a political commentary, and it’s a Haring.

Lot #1026a: Romare Bearden, The Lantern, lithograph, auction estimate $300-$400.
