From several major estates in South Florida comes an auction of broad categories, unexpected discoveries, and artwork from the masters. This autumn sale presented by Abington Auction Gallery covers the reaches of fine art, beginning with an abstract landscape by Roger Muhl. Les Pins recollects the style of the impressionists while contributing something decidedly modern to a traditional view.
Fine art plays a central role in this sale, covering the work of major artists such as Pablo Picasso. The cubist painter’s Visage a la Barbiche is an earthenware tile emblazoned with a goateed face—it is a recognizable example of Picasso’s signature style. This is not simply a sale of paintings, however, for the artistry highlighted crosses beyond the canvas into sculpture, furniture, jewelry, and décor. From a hanging plant sculpture made of bronze to a European silver wine coaster, a certain elegance defines this auction.
Over 225 lots are available, ranging in estimate from $200 to $12,000. A variety of collectors will appreciate the sale, whether in search of one particular work to complete a collection or simply one last item to complete a room. Modern art in all its whimsy remains the focus of this auction, supported by classic forms and vintage beauties. To view the complete catalog and register for online bidding, visit Bidsquare.
