Description:
Description: BROR ALEXANDER UTTER (American, 1913-1993) Pitcher, Two Fish, and a Lobster, circa 1950 Oil on canvas 14 x 10 inches (35.6 x 25.4 cm) Signed lower left: Bror Utter From the Estate of Kelly Fearing. Vessels of many varieties formed an important component of Bror Utter's visual iconography. His compositions often incorporated urns, urns with lids, urns with and without handles, chalices, pitchers, libation cups, bowls, bowls with legs, vases, or conch shells, each of these forms seemingly plucked from some treasure chest of antiquity. In Utter's hands, the particular posture of a vessel could slyly suggest human attributes. Slim-waisted containers with wide mouths and bases appeared to lean and tilt with undeniable feminine energy. What all of these vessels were designed to contain was secondary to their beautiful lines and elegant forms. Indeed, Utter was transfixed throughout his life by the form and shape of things. Pitcher of Fishes combines Bror Utter's love of forms with his equally strong affinity for color. If painted in black and white this image would still intrigue, but when seen through a prism of Aegean-like blues, the pitcher becomes an unlikely yet effective crucible of life. Bror Utter's color sense was a constant source of wonder to his Fort Worth contemporaries and continues today as a main source of Utter's appeal.

Description:
BROR UTTER (American, 1913-1993) Palatine Hill III , 1957 Oil on linen 28 x 36 inches (71.1 x 91.4 cm) Signed and dated lower right: Bror Utter 2/'57 EXHIBITED: Pennsylvania Academy, Philadelphia, 1957; Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, 1958; Fort Worth Art Center, Fort Worth, "Bror Utter Retrospective Exhibition", 1961. LITERATURE: S. Canty, A Retrospective Exhibition of the Work of Bror Utter Under the Auspices of the Forth Worth Art Association , Texas, 1961, no. 73. Bror Utter was one of the leaders of the artist group known as the Fort Worth Circle. He painted Palatine Hill III in 1957. It was probably composed from sketches in his notebook, often watercolored and beautiful works of art in their own right, made when he had traveled to Rome four years before. In 1961, this painting was part of the Retrospective Exhibition of the Work of Bror Utter Under the Auspices of the Fort Worth Art Association , curated by the legendary art patron Sam Cantey III. It was reproduced in the catalogue for which Cantey also wrote the introduction. This excellent painting depicts the Imperial building complex which was the centermost of the Seven Hills of Rome upon which the city was built. The historic Roman subject was the perfect vehicle for Utter's favorite styles and themes. The remaining ruins rise out of the rocky hill. They are a skeleton of massive, crumbing columns and empty arches. Utter was always fascinated with Roman arches, niches and compartments. He also uses a distorted grid structure to create mismatching planes throughout the composition. This kind of abstraction is almost always present in his skies. The painting's precariously harmonized and eccentric colors are hallmarks of his sophisticated style. All of these elements combine in Palatine Hill III to create the surreal quality, brooding mood, and sense of timelessness that characterize his work. Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000. BROR UTTER : . Condition Report*: Excellent condition.

Landscape with Houses is painted in a regionalist style which characterizes much of Bror Utter's work from the late 1930s and early 1940s. His distinctive use of color is already in evidence; the tones of green, yellow and orange contribute to the surrealistic mood of the painting.
