    Fine Art by Fantin-Latour, British Impressionist Painters Available at NY Elizabeth

    Henri-Théodore Fantin-Latour made a name for himself in 19th-century England for his flower still lifes. He worked in a soft, Impressionistic style that drew lessons from the Old Master paintings hanging in the Louvre. An oil on canvas painting by Fantin-Latour depicting the Greek transformation myth of Daphne and Apollo will soon come to auction with NY Elizabeth. Using dark shades and tight brushstrokes, Fantin-Latour depicted a brief moment of contact before Daphne transformed into a laurel tree at the river’s edge.  This sale showcases fine examples of British fine art from across the centuries. Styles represented in the catalog range from Impressionism and Classicism to stern portraits and sweeping landscapes. Collectors interested in religious art can consider a 17th-century Dutch painting showing the marriage of the Virgin Mary. Its style closely resembles the workshop of Peter Paul Rubens. Joseph stands in the center of the frame, accompanied by a white-clad Mary, while cherubs toss down flowers from above. Additional lots of note include a 19th-century portrait of Irishman Henry Gordon Evans by Frederick, Lord Leighton, a Russian Impressionist twilight scene by Alexandr Moravov, and a circular portrait of two young girls by English painter Frank Salisbury.

    Henry-Theodore Fantin-Latour’s Mystical Depiction of Daphne & Apollo Leads British Fine Art Auction

    A rare Napoleonic War-era portrait thought to be of Juliette Récamier is coming to NY Elizabeth’s upcoming auction of British Fine Art. It is an 18th-century French Napoleonic portrait of a lady seated in an interior believed to be painted by Ingres, Simon, or Gerard. Juliette Récamier, born Jeanne Françoise Julie Adélaïde Récamier in 1777 Paris, was a beloved French socialite during her time. Numerous paintings and sculptures were modeled after her modest beauty and mannerisms. As a salon leader, she was a host to notable artists and literary and political figures of her society. In popular culture, because she loved reclining, furniture was termed after her as the récamier. Another legend is brought to life in a 17th-century oil painting. It is believed to have been painted by an Italian Old Master from the Bolognese School. It depicts Diana, goddess of wild animals, and her hound perched on her lap. The Bolognese School was the epicenter of Italian painters of great caliber, and many were heavily influenced by Christianity and saints, giving rise to the Baroque style. One of the most notable lots in the auction is a 19th-century Classical Impressionist scene of Daphne and Apollo by Henry-Theodore Fantin-Latour. The two nude mythical figures, bathed in the moonlight, represent sensual, unattainable love in a beautiful nocturnal woodland scene. Find the listed items and more online auctions on Bidsquare.

    From Rolex Sea-Dweller to Air-King, NY Elizabeth Presents Luxury Watches

    The watch that conquered the deep ocean is coming to 66 | A Collection of Assorted Timepieces auction at NY Elizabeth. It is the Rolex Sea-Dweller Automatic in stainless steel with a 40mm case. The Rolex Sea-Dweller is waterproof to a depth of 4,000 feet (1,220 meters). The first Sea-Dweller was launched in 1967. This watch is the ultimate manifestation of Rolex’s leadership in divers’ watches and the result of decades of collaboration with diving professionals. From deep sea divers to aviators, Rolex has made watches for record makers and breakers over decades. Other collector’s watches from Rolex like the Air-King, Oyster Perpetual 41, and Datejust are also available in the auction.  Apart from Rolex, this auction offers the world’s most famous reversible watch, Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Reverso Grande Night & Day. It is an 18-karat rose gold watch with a 27.50mm case and automatic movement. The story of its origin begins in the middle of the 19th century in Manipur (India), where the Manipur royals and locals played “sagol kangjei,” translating as horse hockey. The players on horseback hit a ball across a rectangular field. British Lieutenant Sherer reported his observations to Captain Robert Stewart, and the two began playing the game that is now known as polo. In 1930, during a visit to India, Swiss native César de Trey encountered polo-playing British officers who sought a robust timekeeper for use during the game. That resulted in the Reverso– a wristwatch that had a case primarily of two parts, one of which was a swiveling capsule that could be pivoted 180 degrees on a hinge.

    NY Elizabeth Will Make Bugatti’s Tribute Type 35 Model Available at Auction

    NY Elizabeth Luxury Watch Auction Highlights Patek Philippe Nautilus

    A Patek Philippe Nautilus luxury sports watch will be highlighted in the upcoming NY Elizabeth auction. Patek Philippe’s release of the Nautilus meant competition for the Royal Oak, the steel sports watch of Audemars Piguet. Both luxury sports watches were designed by Gérald Genta. The Swiss watch designer came up with Audemars Piguet’s Royal Oak model first in 1972. A few years later, in 1976, he created Patek Philippe’s Nautilus. Although similar in design, the Nautilus continues to be the most sought-after luxury sports watch of the two. The Nautilus’ design– its octagon shape, sleek edges, and no visible screws around its bezel– give the watch an elegant, timeless look. The way the bezel and case are screwed together is meant to represent a ship’s porthole. The nautical-themed dial is comprised of horizontal grooves that bear black baton-shaped hands and indexes for a contrasting-colors look.  Brands such as Vacheron Constantin, Rolex, Hublot, and Panerai can also be found in this catalog.
