The first day of the Luxury Estates and Private Collections auction, offered by Great Gatsby’s Auction Gallery, will include works of fine and decorative art as well as furnishings, jewelry, and antiques. Among the key lots in this auction is a carved wood sculpture of a nude woman by Francisco Narváez. A Venezuelan sculptor, Narváez used local materials to create his works. The sculpture included in this sale is signed on its circular base.
An additional example of the included fine art is a signed work of glass by Richard Ritter. Though based in North Carolina, Ritter’s work was selected for the traveling Smithsonian Institution show titled “The White House Collection of Craft” in 1993. Other decorative and fine artworks on offer include a mechanical globe and moon model, a limited edition bronze Erte sculpture titled Rigoletto, and a bronze figurine of Lady Justice holding her scales.
