Hindman’s Timed Auction Offers European Furniture & Decorative ArtsOct 19, 2021 11:00 EDT - Oct 20, 2021 11:00 EDT
French artist Charles-Henri-Joseph Cordier was among the most celebrated sculptors in the 19th century. Working as an ethnographic sculptor for the Muséum national d’histoire naturelle in Paris, the artist built an international following. He was best known for depicting people of varying ethnicities. Cordier drew inspiration from the Orientalist movement. A bust crafted by Charles-Henri-Joseph Cordier will lead the upcoming Hindman auction. The piece shows a young girl wearing a large hat. She gazes away from the viewer.
The sale offers a range of European decorative art and furniture pieces. One of the featured lots is an 18th-century Flemish tapestry depicting the story of Hero and Leander. This Greek myth revolves around a virgin priestess of Aphrodite, named Hero, who fell in love with Leander of Abydos. In this tapestry, Leander swims across the Hellespont to visit her.
