Sale 2205 Lot 5

JoAnn Greenberg
(American/Louisiana, 1928-2013)

Group of Twelve Newcomb Studio Art Pottery Pieces

painted, glazed and incised pottery
of figural motifs, including ten tiles, one bowl and one vase, most with incised signature.
bowl dia. 15-1/2", largest tile 11-1/2" x 28"

Provenance: Collection of Dr. Nia Terezakis, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Notes: A graduate of the art program at Newcomb College, Tulane University, Joanne Greenberg continued in that institutions's tradition of pottery, but in her own distinctive style. Newcomb Pottery, established by the Woodward Brothers, fostered creativity among the female students but within strict guidelines; the women artists decorated but did not throw the pots and their focus was limited to the flora and fauna of Louisiana rendered in a green/blue color scheme. With an exuberant and whimsical quality, Greenberg's pottery features unconventional shapes that she constructed herself and energic scenes often depicting nude women.

Estimate $1,000-1,500
