The first session of Ahlers & Ogletree’s upcoming Spring Fine Estates & Collections sale focuses on contemporary fine and decorative art. The auction will offer George Nakashima’s walnut Minguren coffee table, executed in 1966. The coffee table displays Nakashima’s signature free-edge technique. This style uses irregular edges to bring out the natural contour of a wood plank. Nakashima primarily focused on using woods in their natural form. His work was influenced by both Japanese and early American traditions.
Offering a contemporary sculpture is Arnaldo Pomodoro’s Sfera. The bronze piece depicts a reflective, deconstructed sphere. The artist is best known for his geometric bronze works. “For me, the ‘destruction’ element in form was my most important discovery, and the most authentic both in terms of myself and my times,” he once said. Also included are works from Carroll Tyson Jr., Ida Kohlmeyer, and Ed Mell. Find more fine and decorative art online by visiting Bidsquare.
