I am sorry Betty but i urge you to take this gallery down.
This is child abuse. That boy faced torment mentally and physically
from his evil mother. She even forced him to be her latex gimp.

Thanks. I couldn't resist trying to enhance & extend the one of the fella in the cute tutu sissy dress. I love a pretty dress!

Hello everybody and welcome back to My Weekly Flickr.

The Rockefeller auction didn’t earn a billion dollars but still set a record at $833M.  The item that generated the most astounding return was a 14-karat-gold money clip depicting Rockefeller Center which sold for $75,000 with fees (against an estimate of about $1,200). Not bad. All the proceeds will go to charity, including museums. A success all around I would say.

This week I walked up to Sotheby’s for their Impressionist and Contemporary Auction previews. The main reason to go was a remarkable Modigliani Nude, Nu couché (sur le côté gauche). It’s one of 22 reclining nudes he painted in a three year span from 1916 to 1919. It’s a very large painting 35” x 58” and the only one of the 22 to include the entire figure. It’s truly magnificent and in remarkable condition, it looks like it was painted recently. In 2015 Christie’s auctioned off one of the horizontal nudes and it brought in $170 million and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that record is broken. It’s listed as estimate on request on the website but articles have speculated that it should go for at least $150 million. This is the link to website page with a very long essay under Catalog Note.

This is the only real blockbuster in the auction, others will garner multi-million dollar bids but nothing like the Modigliani. I’ll list some of the other pictures I saw which I found enjoyable.

Claude Monet - MATINÉE SUR LA SEINE – There are three Monet’s in the auction and this is the big one moneywise with an estimate of $18-$25M. Very moody and tranquil, the essay describes it as a meditation in sky and water, trees and shrubs, reflection and suspension. Also below is a brief video explaining how Monet was a precursor to the abstract artists.

Claude Monet - INONDATION À GIVERNY – With an estimate of $2-$3M I actually prefer this lovely landscape to the one above. The essay for this one says, it strikes a balance between the naturalist-realist origins of Impressionism and a boldly experimental approach to capturing the changing qualities of light.

Édouard Manet - PROFIL DE JEUNE FILLE – I don’t think Manet’s come up for auction quite as often as Monet’s, certainly not in the same quantity. This is noted as a portrait while the painting of the young man below is considered, “a personification of the engagement of a people with the foreign and spectacular.” While the young woman is pensive the toreador expresses action.


Edvard Munch - SOMMERNATT (SUMMER NIGHT) – Much of Munch can be dark and oppressive but this is a bright landscape which owes a lot to Van Gogh’s influence on Munch.

Marc Chagall - L'ESPRIT DE ROSES (AU-DESSUS DES FLEURS) – Chagall was Russian and Jewish so suffering persecution from prejudice and the pogroms, it was difficult for him as an artist. He traveled to France to study art and eventually came to the United States during the second world war. He painted he and his wife at the top of many of his paintings floating in the ether or in flight from persecution. This painting shows an angelic like being floating above a brilliant bunch of blood red roses.

Camille Pissarro - MAISON SUR LA FALAISE – There are five Pissarro’s in the auction and this one caught my eye because it’s only approximately 7 ½ by 5” and the actual painted image is substantially smaller than that. But it’s a charming little landscape of a house by the sea with boats sailing by and clouds in the sky.

Camille Pissarro - ALLÉE DANS UNE FÔRET – A striking landscape of a path in the deep woods with tall trees and vegetation with a tiny solitary figure amidst the isolation. I can only speculate that it’s the artist and his figure really isn’t defined.

Maurice de Vlaminck - SAINT MICHEL PRÈS DE BOUGIVAL – There were nine paintings by Vlaminck, a French painter who along with Andre Derain and Henri Matisse is considered one of the principal figures of the Fauve movement which emphasized intense color. He must have been very prolific as there are always a number of his paintings at these auctions. It’s the colors and boxiness of the houses that appeals to me.

Maurice de Vlaminck – FLEURS – It’s the colors again that leap out at you from this still life.

Henri Matisse - TÊTE DE FEMME (LORETTE) – The essay describes how models were hard to come by in World War I Paris and how upon the recommendation of a fellow artist Matisse came to know a young Italian woman named Lorette who, in the course of their year-long association, he painted some fifty times.

Salvador Dalí - PORTRAIT DE MADAME DUCAS – Dali, like Picasso, did a lot of art that was questionable being motivated more by profit than muse. The essay says he was a masterful portraitist and this is quintessential Dalí in its physiological intensity and prodigious technicality. In addition to the woman there’s a lot going on in the background that’s interesting not the least of which is the way he portrays the clouds in the sky.

Eugène Boudin - SAINT-VALÉRY-SUR-SOMME, LEVER DE LUNE SUR LE CANAL – Boudin is another artist who appears regularly in the auctions and I’m fond of his beach scenes of which there are many. This time I was taken by this picturesque landscape with the big bright moon shining overhead.

It was not a good day for traveling. On the way into the City my bus was late and standing room only so I waited for the next one. I spent about an hour and fifteen minutes at the Gallery so I was tired when I left. When the Crosstown bus got to 72nd Street on the West side I was not happy to see that the 72nd Street station was closed. I walked up to 79th Street and just missed the train which got me to the Port Authority so I just missed the bus. I was glad to be home but happy that I had seen the Modigliani. When I wrote to my brother to vent a little about the subway he sent me a MTA notice stating that the 72nd St and 86th Street stations will be closed for repairs until October. These end dates are always more of a wish than a statement. I will have to remember each time I come into the City for an exhibit depending on where it is.

The first Impressionist auction will be held Monday, May 14th while the second will be on Tuesday, May 15th. Until the auction has been held you can see all the items offered for bid in the first two links. Once the auction is over you’ll have to click on the third link, Auction Results, and look for the auction by date. You can narrow the list to just New York by using the drop down menu next to Locations.

Map of visitors to Betty's during the past 30 minutes. This is combined with visitors to here, stories, some Unclegadget sites, & archived sites. On average though, almost 2/3 of the visitors are at stories, almost 1/3 are here, & just a few percent are everywhere else.

It's the pre-dawn hours here in the Allentown Arts district of Buffalo & still the middle of the night west of me, but it's after breakfast time for most in the UK. Once again, I'm always amazed at how many in the UK like to spend their mornings with us... especially on weekends. Here in the USA many won't even get up early on a weekend unless they really have to. But that may be because it's almost required to stay up very late on weekends in the USA. The bulk of our USA, Canadian, & S. American visitors come during their lunchtimes, or in their evening hours.

I think most Americans who get online in the mornings are more likely to check their messages, mails, facebook, or news first, & wait until later to check sissy sites.

Thanks for this andyg,
I had not seen this until now but it looks like it might be pretty good. So used to seeing Jim in comedy roles but he seems to be great in this one.
