The upcoming Estate Jewelry, Fine Art & Collectibles auction presented by Kodner Galleries will feature two works by Impressionist French artist Edouard Léon Cortès. Known for his oil paintings depicting the streets and scenes of Paris, Cortès followed the style of earlier Impressionists such as Claude Monet. A prolific yet reserved artist, he was ever committed to his craft: “As long as I am able to get up and go to my easel, I will paint… I will die happy if I am in front of my easel.” Both Cortès pieces available in this sale show pedestrians walking the streets of the city on wet autumn days. Fine art pieces from Grace Hartigan, Earl Biss, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec will be presented as well.
An 18 karat white gold diamond engagement ring is among the leading lots; the center baguette-cut stone weighs 0.5 carats, flanked by smaller diamonds on either side. Also on offer is a rose gold and diamond bracelet from Cartier. The piece, both signed and stamped, comes with a matching screwdriver. Beyond the fine art and jewelry, this auction will include collector’s coins, decorative art, and Asian items. Browse the full catalog and register to bid on Bidsquare.
