    Neue Auctions Presents Tale of Two Artists: Erté and Louis Icart

    Roman Petrovich Tyrtov was the son of a distinguished Russian admiral and was expected to follow in his father's footsteps. In 1910, though, he moved to Paris to become an artist. He changed his name to Erté to avoid bringing shame to his family. Now, Neue Auctions will offer numerous bronze works by Erté in the upcoming sale. This includes a late Erté piece depicting Zeus and Hera. Both figures are draped in long, blue robes that circle around their feet. Also available from Erté is the artist's reimaging of Gilda from the Giuseppe Verdi opera, Rigoletto. Work by Louis Icart will also highlight this sale. Like Erté, Icart found inspiration in Paris at the start of the 20th century. He is best known for his depictions of Parisian women. The etching Thoroughbreds by Icart shows a woman riding a horse. Her makeup and scarf provide the only color in the etching, guiding the viewer's gaze in that direction. In Speed, Vitesse, Icart once again explores movement. Three greyhounds run forward as a woman holds their leashes, her clothes fiercely waving as they race. Those interested in this or any other piece can register to bid on Bidsquare.

    July Summer Art & Antiques

    Tinsel pictures gained popularity in 19th-century America as an evening activity between mothers and daughters. Crafting these pictures was later used to calm wounded soldiers in the Civil War. Coming to auction as part of the July Summer Art & Antiques event, presented by Neue Auctions, is a set of 14 tinsel pictures. Subjects of the pictures range from fruit bowls and flower pots to bluebirds and butterflies. Several decorative art pieces are highlighted in this sale, including a cloisonné vase by Japanese artist Hiroaki Ota. Decorating the vase is a prunus tree in bloom. Bidders will also find several collectible albums. Featured among these is a copy of Pink Floyd's Animals signed by band members Roger Waters, Richard Wright, Nick Mason, and David Gilmour. The band used imagery from George Orwell's novella Animal Farm (1945) to criticize the British government in the 1970s. “You better stay home/ And do as you're told/ Get out of the road if you want to grow old,” warns the album’s penultimate song, “Sheep.” Those interested in this or any other lot can register for the event on Bidsquare.
