Léon Herbo and Retna Paintings Open the Eclectic Eye Auction by Akiba AntiquesJan 25, 2022 12:00 EST
Paintings from Léon Herbo and Retna will lead the Eclectic Eye auction, presented by Akiba Antiques. A multi-colored watercolor on paper piece by Retna depicts symbols in colorful hues that the artist once gifted to his personal assistant. Marquis Lewis, better known as Retna, is a contemporary artist known for his eclectic graffiti art. He has developed a constructed script which he uses in his art. Recently, Retna’s work illustrated the album Purpose by Justin Bieber. This event from Akiba Antiques also brings a painting from Léon Herbo (1850 – 1907), a Belgian painter commissioned to paint famous people of his time. Featured in the catalog is The Charmer by Herbo. It depicts a brunette woman with two birds hovering above her.
Among jewelry, several carved jadeite lots are notable. An early 20th-century carved Chinese jadeite plaque with fine moth carvings is available in the auction. The jadeite rests in a 14-karat yellow gold mount. Other interesting lots include a Royal Copenhagen porcelain dinner set, a St. Dupont limited edition James Bond 007 lighter, crocodile-skin combination lock briefcases, furniture, glassware, and more. Find the catalog on LiveAuctioneers and register to place a bid.
