A Japanese-American ceramic sculptor, Akio Takamori (1950-2017) carved characters from both rural and urban settings. Takamori’s works were inspired by Japanese culture and largely drew from his childhood years in his homeland. Akio Takamori’s stoneware sculpture of two figures is among the highlights of I.M. Chait Gallery’s upcoming Asian Art, Antiques, & Estates auction. The painted sculpture depicts two women. One rests her arm on the shoulder of the other.
A polychrome ceramic figure by Ralph Bacerra (1938-2008) will be available as well. Bacerra’s artwork is acclaimed for its eye-catching color combinations, which he achieved with a multi-stage overglazing technique. The available sculpture features intricate geometric patterns inspired by Imari and Kutani ware of Japan, Tang ceramics of China, and Persian miniatures. The auction also offers a 1922 black lacquer finish parlor grand piano from Steinway & Sons. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
