Harriet Whitney Frishmuth Bronze Sculpture and 20th Century Design Sale by Abington Auction GalleryOct 29, 2020 17:00 EDT
Most of Harriet Whitney Frishmuth’s sculptures depict dancing women and are housed in museums across the United States. In her lifetime, Frishmuth was also a recipient of numerous awards such as the Joan of Arc Silver Medal from the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors and the St. Gaudens Medal from the Art Students League of New York. A bronze sculpture from Frishmuth showing two dancers holding each other by the hand will be featured in the upcoming 20th-Century Design auction, presented by Abington Auction Gallery.
Among the jewelry lots, an 18-karat yellow gold necklace and bracelet set once owned by Salvador Dalí stands out. Titled Ama de Laves, the pieces are unmistakably Dalí’s with a signature keyhole central motif. Dalí thought that sleep was a waste of time and slept with a key in his hand to wake up as soon he heard it fall to the floor. Several additional lots are featured as well, including an oil painting from John Nieto of a Morning Star warrior and a monumental totem pole from the Northwest Coast. View the entire catalog of 238 lots and place a bid at Bidsquare.
