From Antiques and the Arts Weekly – DETROIT, MICH. — DuMouchelles hosted two days of March auctions on March 17 and 18, with almost 1,000 lots of fine art, decorative arts, jewelry and more. The queen of both days’ sales was an oil on canvas, mounted to board painting of the Virgin Mary by Zofia Stryjenska (Polish, 1894-1976). In addition to painting, Stryjenska was a graphic designer, illustrator and stage designer who was part of the “Rytm” (rhythm) art group. She often used tempera for her work and is well-known for her series of Slavic idols and saints. This example was painted circa 1950 and sold for $25,800 to a bidder in Poland.
