Art from the Renaissance period is unlike all others. Such art forms, that go beyond the visual arts, include revolutionary pieces of furniture from the period. Fine and Decorative Art: Live Discovery Auction by Cowan’s Auctions builds upon these themes, featuring a monumental, Renaissance, revival-style sideboard as the highest bid in the collection. Beyond the mythological components, the furniture is also inspired by historical and religious themes.
The artists featured in this auction will remind us that beautiful art knows no bounds. Notable artists include Maxfield Parrish and Eric Jacobsen, two celebrated individuals in American art history. The astonishing style of Maxfield Parrish, featuring figures in pastoral landscapes explains his popularity in the early 20th century. The artist focuses on the compositions of whimsy which led to the creation of his masterpieces. From the work by Eric Jacobsen comes a sense of serenity. The oil on canvas displays the wonder he has for nature.
Capturing the expression of a portrait sets the difference between mediocre and excellent artistry. One portrait by Eleanor Hancock Pryor, depicting a rockabilly guitarist, not only capture the subject’s expression but also reflects broader human emotions.
