    Two-Session Sale From Everard Auctions and Appraisals Offers Victor Vasarely’s Serigraph Neptune-3, Rock Crystal Table Clock from Seaman Schepps, and More

    Everard Auctions and Appraisals’ upcoming two-session sale includes hundreds of fine and decorative art items from various Southern estates and collections, as well as Outsider Art. Leading the first session is an artwork by Victor Vasarely titled Neptune-3. A Hungarian painter and sculptor, Vasarely was considered a leading figure in the Op Art movement. A distinctive characteristic of his work is the grid-like surface of his paintings and sculptures, which play with the viewer's perception of form by creating an illusion of spatial depth, perspective, and motion. Rearranging colored squares is a hallmark of his pieces, in which he was able to create an endless variety of permutations by repeating just a few colors. The available lot is a serigraph with shades of blue, red, purple, and green. It belongs to an edition of 250. It is pencil signed by Victor Vasarely on the lower right. Other notable works in the catalog include a twisted organic bronze sculpture with a high-polish finish by American artist Bob Bennett and a George III-style six light chandelier with scrolling details. Among the top lots in the second session of this event is a rock crystal table clock from Seaman Schepps. Designs by Schepps were characterized by the combinations of rare materials, such as wood or shell, with semiprecious and precious gem cabochons. The face of the available lot has a shell logo, with 'Seaman Schepps Est. 1904' and '18K Stone Base Clock Gold Plated Base Metal' inscribed on its faces.

Highlights include a newly discovered and expertly authenticated waterscape by Sanford Robinson Gifford, John J Audubon’s White Heron, a sizable collection of outsider art, sterling silver, mid-century modern furniture, Asian art, jewelry, watches and autographed sports collectibles.  John James Audubon (American, 1785-1851), ‘White Heron (and Horned Agama),’ hand-colored aquatint with engraving from ‘The Birds of America,’ Havell Ed., 1837. Size: 39in x 51in framed, 25 1/8in x 37 7/8in sight. Estimate $25,000-$35,000 Fine Art One of the auction’s premier art entries is Hudson River Scenery, an 1858 oil on canvas on board by the revered Luminist and landscape painter Sanford Robinson Gifford (American 1823-1880). Gifford was a prominent second-generation Hudson River Valley School artist and a founder of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In fact, he was such an icon of his day that he was posthumously honored with The Met’s first monographic retrospective and a memorial catalogue of his known paintings.  Gifford’s Hudson River Scenery was recently inspected and authenticated by the leading Sanford R. Gifford scholar, Dr. Ila Weiss, who wrote, “It was a surprise and especially delightful for me to encounter this painting as I have been intimately familiar with a half-size oil study for it for many years and had no idea until now that it existed.” She went on to say, “The most significant change between the study and your developed image is the effect of warmly tinted aerial-luminosity, a Gifford stylistic hallmark … The veiling effect of warm, late afternoon light suffusing the landscape not only unifies the image but conveys sentiment: the artist’s deep affection for characteristic American scenery on return home from his first trip abroad of 1855–1857.” The artwork measures 10¾ inches by 19 15/16 inches and has an auction estimate of $60,000-$80,000.…

The variety is endless, spanning the traditional fine and decorative art realm from both a Western and Asian point of view. In addition, there are dozens of specialty categories, such as 19th-century lay-down scent bottles, folk art canes, Venetian glass, holy water fonts, Russian lacquer boxes, Royal Vienna porcelain, Sumidagawa pottery, portrait miniatures, antique maps and scientific instruments. Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), ‘The Seasons,’ 1896, complete suite of four color lithographs. Estimate: $20,000-$30,000 The elegance and enduring influence of the Art Nouveau aesthetic are gracefully present in this sale through the peerless work of Alphonse Mucha, Tiffany Studios artists, and celebrated sculptors of the period. An additional highlight from the first half of the 20th century is a collection of chic, always in-demand Art Deco jewelry.  Fine Art Leading the Fine Art category is a complete set of Alphonse Mucha’s The Seasons, a suite of four lithographs created in 1896. Each of the color lithographs is sized 39½ inches by 19½ inches and conveys the artist’s inimitable talent for allegorical storytelling through the use of soft pastel colors and flowy spiraling lines. The set is estimated at $20,000-$30,000 and has a $12,000 reserve.  Alphonse Maria Mucha (Czechoslovakia, 1860-1939) stands at the summit of Art Nouveau illustration and design. He studied art in Munich before moving to Paris, where he was a student at both the Académie Julien and Colarossi. While living and working in France, he transformed the art of the poster and continued to break new ground with his increasingly ambitious commissions.  The first half of Mucha’s career was spent creating theatrical panels, but he went on to design jewelry, wallpaper and carpets, as well as theater sets and advertisements. He later retired to Prague and dedicated himself to the crafting of his…

    Everard’s Oct. 18-20 Fall Southern Estates auction series highlighted by renowned John and Virginia Duncan collection of antiques and Lowcountry treasures

    Amassed over 75 years, Duncan collection encompasses fine, folk & ethnographic art; antiques, furniture, rare maps and broad range of material culture of Southeastern United States SAVANNAH, Ga. – Everard Auctions takes great pleasure in announcing highlights of its Oct. 18 Fall Southern Estates auction to be followed on October 19-20 by a very special sale of the John and Virginia Duncan collection of fine, folk and ethnographic art and antiques. Bidding options include absentee and live online, with gallery previewing available at specified times.  Leonora Quarterman (Savannah, 1911-1979), ‘Savannah City Market,’ watercolor, 1948. Size: 18½in x 22in. From the John and Virginia Duncan collection, Savannah, Ga. Estimate $2,000-$3,000 Fall Southern Estates Auction – Oct. 18, 2022 The October 18 fine art selection includes two works by famous female artists from the Estate of Betty Melaver, Savannah, Georgia. The first is a colorful untitled Texas landscape by Georgia O’Keeffe (New Mexico/New York, 1887-1986). The 1917 watercolor measures 8¾ inches by 12 inches and is listed as Item 196 in the artist’s catalogue raisonne, which also notes that the artwork is associated with O’Keeffe’s Pink and Green Mountains series. The auction estimate is $100,000-$150,000, with a $90,000 reserve. O’Keeffe’s early watercolors, while not as well known to collectors as her oils, may provide another perspective on a storied career. In 1916, the artist took a job as the chair of the art department at West Texas State Normal College, in Canyon, Texas, where the Pink and Green Mountains series was created the following year. In a similar vein, the watercolor offered by Everard demonstrates her facility with what is widely acknowledged to be a very difficult medium in which to work. By 1918, O’Keeffe had returned to live in New York, where Alfred Stieglitz, her dealer and future husband, encouraged her to move away from watercolor, fearful of its association with amateur women artists. This may help to explain the limited number of watercolors O’Keeffe executed during her career.  The second featured artwork from the Melaver estate is Louise Nevelson’s (New York, 1899-1988) Clouds IV, a 1984 painted wood wall sculpture…

    Philip Taaffe Abstract Art and Harrington Mann Portrait Highlight Winter Southern Estates Sale

    Contemporary American artist Philip Taaffe is best known for his visually stimulating works. His art is a synthesis of cultural motifs, abstract patterns, and process-based techniques. From Islamic mosques to Japanese perforated screens, Taaffe borrows richly from his extensive world travels. His works have been displayed at solo exhibitions, including art galleries in Dublin, Paris, and Brooklyn. Taaffe’s oil on paper mounted to canvas, Anthology III, is a key lot of the upcoming Winter Southern Estates sale at Everard Auctions and Appraisals. Dated 1991-92, the painting highlights dense patterns in shades of green, purple, and pink on a pale yellow background. It is also noteworthy for its iconographic abstraction.

The oil on canvas depicts the young girl dressed in a blue dress and yellow tights with a hula hoop in her hands. A member of the influential Glasgow Boys movement in the 1880s, Harrington shared a collective passion for naturalism and realism. Glasgow School artists painted real people in real settings using techniques considered innovative for the time.  French glassmaker Lalique’s glass and chrome Chene chandelier (1955) is a striking decorative lot.

    Everard’s Feb. 23-24 auction offers superlative fine and decorative art, jewelry and furnishings from distinguished Southern estates

    Featured: William Kentridge bronze, Philip Taaffe abstract painting, Chagall etchings, Halsman print of iconic Einstein portrait, deaccessioned art from Savannah museum SAVANNAH, Ga. – A growing interest in items that are unique or finely crafted has the auction market off to a robust start in 2022. Everard Auctions & Appraisals’ February 23-24 Winter Southern Estates Auction is ready to meet the demand with more than 650 lots of fine and decorative art from select sources in Georgia, South Carolina, Florida and beyond. Absentee bidding is now in progress, with Internet live bidding slated to begin at 10 a.m. ET on both days of the auction series. Signed bronze is by South African artist William Kentridge (b. 1955-). When rotated, the work changes from an abstract expressionist shape to the form of a nose. Estimate $30,000-$50,000 4 – Anthology III The auction features a wide range of modern and contemporary art, including an important bronze by William Kentridge (NY, South Africa, b. 1955-) titled Sculpture for Return (Commendatore Naso). It is initial-signed WK and numbered 11/12 on the side of the base. When rotated, the sculpture changes to form a nose, hence the “Commander Nose” referenced in the title. “For Kentridge, the process of recording history is constructed from reconfigured fragments to arrive at a provisional understanding of the past—this act of recording, dismembering and reordering crosses over into an essential activity of the studio,” says a commentary from the Marian Goodman Gallery, which notes his interest in “fragmentation and reconnection, the fragility of coherence.” The sculpture comes from a Sea Island, Georgia, estate and is estimated at $30,000-$50,000.  Philip Taaffe’s (b. 1955-) Anthology III, a 28-by-40-inch oil on paper mounted to canvas, is dated 1991-1992 and has an estimate of $10,000-$15,000. “Philip Taaffe is one of the most exciting contemporary artists of his peer group.

The memory of Everard’s exciting October 2020 sale of a Stephen Scott Young painting titled Tenth Son is still fresh in the minds of Southern regional art collectors. Young’s captivating watercolor depiction of an African American boy in summer attire – a signed “first study” – charmed bidders and had no trouble reaching a winning bid of $31,250. While many art aficionados were already familiar with Young’s work, others were delighted to discover the talented contemporary realist, whose luminous watercolors sensitively capture the people, landscapes and architecture of America’s coastal Southeast.
