Artist Lanny Ross was known in his local community of St. Paul, Minnesota, as “The Man of Colours.” Many of his works explore his trips across Asia, from Hong Kong to Saigon, while also experimenting with color. Among the featured lots in the upcoming Eclectic Collection of Estates Worldwide auction, presented by Akiba Antiques, is a Lanny Ross mixed media work based on his experiences in Singapore. In the piece, orchids of various colors bloom, juxtaposed against a monochromatic green background.
The event includes both fine and decorative art, along with jewelry. This includes a bronze sculpture, titled Couples, by Italian artist Ferruccio Polacco. After emigrating from Italy to Argentina during World War II, Polacco transitioned away from his traditional aesthetic to more abstract work. Couples is an example of this later style. Among the jewelry pieces available in this auction is a platinum ring with a 7.96-carat Ceylon sapphire. Those interested in this or any other piece can register to bid on Bidsquare.
