"Swedish, Finnish, German and Austrian, French, Asian and American furniture items such as chairs, chaise longues, sideboards and cabinets, occasional tables and chests are in abundance and estimated conservatively to sell," said Cynthia Maciejewski of Neue Auctions. Online bidding will be via LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Bidsquare.com.
A bronze coffee table by Philip and Kelvin LaVerne, titled Eternal Forest, is expected to inspire brisk bidding. As a father-son team, Philip (1907-1987) and Kelvin (b. 1937) LaVerne created stunning, functional art pieces (chief among them, coffee tables) in patinated bronze, pewter and silver. Their designs were made using a unique technique that took years to perfect, and their furniture was created in limited editions of twelve, making them highly collectible items today.
Furniture by Louis Majorelle (French, 1859-1926) will feature a dining table and chairs (estimate: $4,000-$7,000)
Fans of Pablo Picasso (Spanish, 1881-1973) will be treated to an aquatint from the artist's Sable Mouvant (1964), published in 1966, of a painter and model (estimate: $2,000-$4,000)
Maxfield Parrish (American, 1870-1966) is also in the auction, with a lithograph titled Stars. Parrish was a painter and illustrator active in the first half of the 20th century, known for his distinctive saturated hues and idealized neo-classical imagery. His career spanned 50 years and was wildly successful. His painting Daybreak is the most popular art print of the 20th century.
