Diverse offerings in Jasper52 Nov. 15 fine paintings and prints auction

On Tuesday, November 15, starting at 8 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will offer a sale of Exquisite Fine Art Paintings and Prints. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

The 163 lots that appear in the lineup of the November 15 sale present a wide range of eye-pleasing images that represent an equally wide range of forms, subjects and eras. Of particular note are several charming beach scenes by French artist Huguette Ginet-Lasnier; an Italian circa-1600 painting of an old man and a courtesan; an 1869 Dutch School scene of barges on a canal in the process of loading; a Victorian English oil on canvas of a red-jacketed huntsman in full gallop atop his black steed, surrounded by a pack of running, eager hunting dogs; and a circa-2000 market scene that deftly dances the line between the figurative and the abstract.

Francisco Ruiz Ferrandis, ‘The Pottery Seller,’ estimated at $1,500-$2,000

Jasper52 presents Fine Art and Prints from the UK, Sept. 6

On Tuesday, September 6, starting at 9 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will present a 113-lot sale of Fine Art and Prints from the United Kingdom. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

The first highlight is an undated monochromatic mixed media portrait of singer Bob Marley by British artist Paul Karslake (1958-2020). He built his reputation through painting portraits of high-profile sitters such as Princess Grace of Monaco, Michael Caine, the Rolling Stones and Johnny Depp (admittedly, it must have helped to have a connection in the form of his sister, Jo Wood, now an ex-wife of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood). In 1990, Karslake was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. The Marley portrait measures 79 by 98cm (31 by 381/2in) and carries an estimate of $14,000-$17,000.

John Alfred Wheeler, ‘Taking a Fence,’ estimate $5,000-$6,000

How to measure prints and posters like an expert

Accurately measuring prints and posters can be challenging. This guide will give you the tools to accurately measure them. Before handling your prints and posters, make sure your hands are clean and dry, and use gloves if you have them.

The standard format for reporting measurements of a print or a poster is as follows: Height x Width. For a framed artwork, use this format: Height x Width x Depth.

Experts need three different measurements to assess your print or poster: Sheet, Image and Plate. If the work is in a frame, they also need to know the Sight and Frame measurements.

Sheet: Measure the entire sheet of paper. If your item is in a frame, you may not be able to take this measurement. See the red line in the illustration below.

Image: Measure the colored area. See the yellow line in the illustration below.

Plate: Plate marks are faint indentations surrounding the image, and are usually square or rectangular in shape. See the blue line in the illustration below.

Sight: This is the area of the artwork that is visible inside the mat or frame. See the orange line in the illustration below.

Frame: This is the overall size of the frame. See the purple line in the illustration below.

How to measure prints
BASIC TYPES OF MEASURING TOOLS:
Measuring tools

  • Seamstress tape: Soft and flexible, good for measuring circumference, three-dimensional objects or curved objects.
  • Measuring tape: Rigid, can be hooked onto a frame or canvas, good for measuring straight items that are longer than one foot.
  • Ruler: Rigid, good for measuring straight items smaller than one foot, particularly small items that can be laid directly on the ruler.

How to Measure:

  1. Place the “Zero” end of your ruler at one end of your print (the “Zero” end is usually on the left side of the ruler).
  2. Make sure the end of your ruler is flush (in line) with your print.
  3. Adjust your ruler so that it is aligned with your print.
  4. Move to the opposite side of the print you are measuring and read the ruler.
