Auctions at Showplace’s upcoming sale, featuring works from estates in New York City and the surrounding areas, will present over 200 lots of fine and decorative art by the likes of Annette Ollivary and Nguyen Thanh Binh. Leading the sale is a mixed-media painting by Annette Ollivary, a French artist. Ollivary’s paintings portray a world that is reminiscent of a lost Eden or a golden age. An artist of naive expression, her works depict bliss and happiness. Ollivary depicts jungle creatures living in peace in her forests and fields, including peaceful lions and tigers living as companions of children in wonder. The available painting, titled Les Belles Histoires (The Beautiful Stories), portrays a woman sharing stories with children outdoors. The piece is signed and titled on the gilt frame.
Another notable lot in this sale is an oil painting on canvas after Johannes Evert Akkeringa. The Dutch artist is best known for his depictions of fishing women and children on the sands and the beaches, in addition to beautiful floral still lifes. The present lot portrays a Dutch scene with traditionally-dressed women repairing fishnets amid blue skies and thick clouds. The catalog also includes a diverse selection of fine jewelry, antiquities, silver, lighting, sculptures, and other items.
