When sculptor and Pop artist Ernest Trova created his signature humanoid figure, The Falling Man, he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “The figure is a personal hypothetical theory on the nature of man. I believe that man is, first of all, an imperfect creature.” In 1969, Pace Editions published a set of ten silkscreens from Trova titled Falling Man Manscapes Portfolio. Available in the upcoming Eclectic Collection of Estates Worldwide sale, presented by Akiba Antiques, this lot shows Trova’s Falling Man in various poses. The faceless and armless figure is both separated from and juxtaposed with others.
Another key item is an abstract diptych by Michael Rubin titled In God’s Light. An Abstract artist, Rubin is known for constructing luminous and carefully arranged color fields in his works. Beyond fine art, this auction also includes over 100 lots of furniture and decorative art. Leading these is a three-piece French clock set that features a painted panel of a courting couple. An early 20th-century tri-fold Chinese wood screen decorated with dragons is also available. Explore the full catalog for this auction and register to bid on Bidsquare.
