This lot of rare art comes from the estate of a friend of the artist. Outside of very few specialty auctions, Mr. Gorse work is next to impossible to come by.

Over the past 15 years, fewer than 5 of these sculptures have come to auction, fetching in the ranges of $800.00 to over $4000.00 USD, though, Mr. Gorse’s sketches are extremely rare and have never come to market.

As far as I can tell, only a few select national galleries in Slovenia have examples in their collections.

Included in this unique sale:

1. Sculpture featured in the New York show catalog “Studia Slovenica VIII” in 1971.
Measures 18 x 8.5″ signed and dated 1970 and includes original gallery catalog autographed by the artist.

2. Sketch of child sitting on parents shoulders – Dated 1981 – 16 x 20″

3. Three adults and child – Dated 1971 – 16.5 x 12.5″

4. Woman posing right – On Fabriano Paper – Dated 1973 – 14 x 10″

5. Woman posing left – Dated 1973 – 10.5 x 16.5″

6. Woman posing right with foot on pedestal – 1973 – 17 x 10.5″

7. Abstract person posing right – Dated 1972 – 7.5 x 12″

8. Mary & Baby Jesus – 1969 – 9 x 11.5
