The upcoming Important Fine Art and Design event, presented by Auctions at Showplace, will offer bidders a chance to own items by several notable artists and designers. Featured in the auction is a 1950 painting titled L’entrée du port à Sainte-Adresse by Raoul Dufy. Henri Matisse’s Luxe, Calme et Volupté inspired Dufy’s profound interest in Fauvism. His works were characterized as optimistic, decorative, and celebratory. Saint-Adresse is an oil on canvas that captures the landscape of a French port.
The second version of Table Berceau by Swiss sculptor and designer Diego Giacometti is also on offer. The glass top table stands low in height and features patinated bronze legs. A gem-set gold clock by luxury watchmaker Vacheron Constantin is also available. The 18-karat gold-cased clock rests on the paws of a reclining white bear with ruby eyes. A Rolex Oyster Perpetual 18-karat gold wristwatch and Pablo Picasso’s Lampe Femme vase is also on offer. To view the full catalog or to place a bid, visit Bidsquare.
