Dakota Jackson’s Cadette Dining Chairs & Jan Valentin Saether’s Painting Offered by Cain Modern AuctionsApr 10, 2023 12:00 EDT
A diptych oil painting by Jan Valentin Saether (1944 – 2018) takes center stage in an upcoming sale from Cain Modern Auctions. Saether, a Norwegian figurative painter, was one of the pioneers of the Neo-Figurative movement that emerged in Norway. He experimented with sculpture and different media besides classical figurative painting. The available untitled oil canvas depicts two open boxes, one empty and the other featuring a bearded man with curly hair. The composition reflects the artist’s fine attention to detail. Saether started art schools in Los Angeles and served as a professor of figurative painting at the National Academy of the Arts in Oslo for many years.
Another notable lot in this sale is a set of six Cadette dining chairs by designer and furniture maker Dakota Jackson. The chairs have solid mahogany frames with a veneered back and an espresso-stained finish. They have fully upholstered brown-colored seats of premium Italian calfskin leather. Other noteworthy furniture pieces in the catalog include a Ledletto queen bed by Cini Boeri, a French center table in brass and wrought iron with an octagonal slate top, and a 2007 circular swivel sofa by Antonio Citterio. The latter piece was designed by Citterio for the Maxalto collection for B&B, Italia.
