Modern and Contemporary Art, Furniture and Design
Consignments Are Currently Being Accepted
NEW YORK, NY -- The Doyle+Design® auction on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 10am will showcase furniture, design and art by some of the most prominent designers, makers and artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. This sale category takes a look at 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. Among the Modern and Contemporary paintings, drawings and sculpture are works by both established and emerging artists.
A set of twelve chargers by noted London silversmith Gilbert Marks (1861-1905) from the Estate of Bruce C. Denton are richly chased with floral specimens in the best of Arts and Crafts tradition. Magazine articles of the period noted how Marks skillfully transferred flowers into silver on his works without the use of machinery. His short career produced beautifully artistic works which, as is the case here, are often signed by the artist himself (est. $25,000-35,000).
Ole Wanscher (1903-1985) drew on classic furniture design to create pieces that have come to represent great Danish Mid-Century design. Offered are eight of his T-Chairs from 1957 that combine beauty and functionality with their simple, clean lines and elegant form ( est. $15,000-25,000).
Vasa, born Vasa Velizar Mihich in Yugoslavia in 1933, moved to Los Angeles in 1960 and was among the pioneers of artists using cast acrylics as an artistic medium (est. $1,000-1,500).
