NEW YORK, NY -- The Doyle+Design® auction on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 at 10am will showcase furniture, design and art by some of the most prominent designers, makers and artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. The sale presents design that has transformed the way we use living spaces while questioning where we draw the line between fine art and furniture and decorative objects.
Furniture & Design
Among the furniture and design are examples by André Dubreuil, Wharton Esherick, Diego Giacometti, Georg Jensen, Vladimir Kagan, George Nakashima, Albert Paley, Gio Ponti, Emile-Jacques Ruhlman, Tiffany Studios and Hervé van der Straeten.
Furniture by George Nakashima (1905-1990) is renowned for its organic forms that incorporate the natural unfinished edge of the wood plank, as seen in two chests of drawers in the sale. Often chosen in consultation with his clients, the wood retains the expressiveness found in the graining and imperfections of each plank (est. each $30,000-50,000).
Vladimir Kagan’s (1927-2016) furniture from the 1950s took American homes in a completely new direction, re-imagining everyday objects into works of art. The sale offers a pair of Contour lounge chairs that illustrate why Kagan is known as one of the great furniture designers of the last century (est. $12,000-18,000).
The fine art section of the sale is wide ranging within the realm of Modern and Contemporary art. Form meets function with wonderful tapestries by Yaacov Agam, Nassos Daphnis and others. American abstraction is represented by Jimmy Ernst, John Levee and Robert Goodnough, as well as a wonderful Robert Natkin formerly in the collection of author Joseph Heller. The sale includes realism by the Long Island contingent with works by Wolf Kahn, Lois Dodd and Jane Freilicher. The Parisians are present with examples by Francois Gilot, Marcel Mouly and Claude Venard. There are also sculptures by figurative artists, such as Boris Lovet-Lorski and Reuben Nakian, and abstractions by Michael Steiner and Clement Meadmore. Diversity rules the day with regard to price range, genre and artist’s nationality.
