Frederick Judd Waugh was a marine painter and camouflage artist for the U.S. Navy during World War I. A member of the National Academy of Design, Waugh is best known for his dramatic depictions of crashing surf. The upcoming April Fine Estate Auction, presented by Briggs Auction, features two oil on canvas pieces from Waugh. Respectively titled Rocky Shoreline and Surf, they both show waves crashing on rocks.
In the 1950s, the husband/ wife designer duo Charles and Ray Eames took on a project to design a luxury chair. Charles Eames wanted a chair with “… the warm receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” The Eames Lounge Chair grew out of that vision. Unveiled in 1956 on Arlene Francis’ Home television show, the Eames lounge chair and ottoman became a popular status symbol. Offered in this sale is an Eames and Herman Miller rosewood chair and ottoman. The auction will also offer several textiles, including a room-size Heriz carpet with a center medallion.
