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.

Highlighting the furniture and design offerings are examples by Piero Fornasetti, Diego Giacometti, Georg Jensen, Philip and Kelvin LaVerne, Gilbert Marks, George Nakashima, Jean Royere, Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, Tiffany Studios, Ole Wanscher and Charles J. Weinstein Co.

Among the Italian designers of the 1960s, none made a bigger splash than Piero Fornasetti. A Leopard chest of drawers combines his whimsical sensibility with functional design. The surface decoration transforms the ordinary into the unexpected. His work is as fresh today as
it was half a century ago (est. $15,000-20,000).

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).

Louis Comfort Tiffany is rightfully regarded as one of America’s most important and successful proponents of the Art Nouveau era. Nature at her zenith was masterfully captured by Tiffany’s designers, craftsmen and craftswomen, as seen in a bronze and gold Favrile Glass Ten-Light Pond Lily lamp from the Estate of Marian Clark Adolphson (est. $8,000-12,000).

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).

Modern and Contemporary paintings, drawings and sculpture offer works by both established and emerging artists, including James Brooks, James Brown, Paul Cadmus, CRASH, Francis Hyman Criss, Ibrahim Hussein, Edward Schteinberg and William Zorach.

Lucas Samaras (b. 1936) participated in Allen Kaprow’s Happenings and came of age at the emergence of Pop, Minimalism and Performance Art, yet Samaras created a universe all his own. Working in a wide range of conventional and nonconventional media, Samaras is comfortable with drawing, painting, sculpting, photography and installation. His body of work most closely resembles Surrealism, but placing his work in a category would diminish his genius in solemnity (est. $2,000-3,000).

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).
