Akiba Antiques will bring nearly 850 lots of fine art, furniture, decorative art, and collectibles under the hammer in November. Among the top lots is an artist-proof screenprint from Andy Warhol. Created in 1984 for the Details from Renaissance Paintings series, the available work shows a landscape scene with a peach-colored mountain and ominous trees. In the foreground, a hand reaches into view with a blessing gesture. Another hand rests on draped fabric or a book. This composition appropriates Leonardo da Vinci’s The Annunciation from 1472. Warhol divorced the original work from its context, applied vibrant Pop Art colors, and offered a critique of art consumption. Another notable fine art piece on offer is The Robe, a 1988 oil painting by Jim Dine.
The upcoming November’s Treasures sale will include several notable pieces of decorative art. Among them is a figural bronze sculpture by Erté. The Art Deco designer prioritized glamor and elegance in his works. The available Erté sculpture, King’s Favorite, shows a woman reclining on a golden pillow. While her pose is casual, she looks boldly toward the viewer. Other lots of interest include a Chinese carved jade pumpkin sculpture, a bronze lion desk set from Austria, and various silver items.
