As Modernism made its way into the realm of art, many shared a prevailing desire to create new aesthetic reality. The pieces offered in the upcoming Fine and Decorative Art: Premier Auction by Cowan’s Auctions shows the transformation of mimetic tradition into the rebellious mood of the 20th century.
Works of acclaimed artists such as Jessie Botke and Birger Sandzen are being presented in the auction. Botke is an artist well known for her decorative works on exotic birds. Inspired by Japanese screens, she often used nature as a background for her oil compositions. Similarly, Sandzen experimented with the palette of rich and bold colors on his landscape paintings. Not only do both artists share their fascination with nature, but their works are the highest estimated items in the auction.
The collection showcases a combination of fine and decorative items, along with a range of elegant furniture. Those looking for decorative pieces will not go disappointed. Redefined decorative arts such as Andrew Clemens sand bottle and Lalique Poissons vase with attention to detail are featured items. Their unique forms capture the curiosity.
