Manierre Dawson Artwork & Vintage Chanel Lead the Upcoming New York City Estate AuctionAug 06, 2023 12:00 EDT
Manierre Dawson was not confident about showcasing his paintings when asked by Arthur Bowen Davies to participate in the International Exhibition of Modern Art, better known as the Armory Show, in 1912. Nevertheless, Dawson (1887 – 1969) exhibited in Chicago and launched his career as a successful avant garde and Cubist artist. An untitled oil painting attributed to Dawson will lead this upcoming New York City Estate Auction, offered by Auctions at Showplace. It is a wood board painting depicting an abstract Cubist composition dated 1912. It is housed in a carved gilt wood frame. Another leading lot is a set of three 20-karat yellow gold bangles. All three are distinct, with different enamel colors and engraved designs. They can be worn as slip-over-the-wrist fixed bangles.
Notable collectibles in the sale include Cedric Hartman bronze model ‘91 CO floor lamps and an antique Persian silver tray. Designed in 1978, the bases of the Hartman lamps are signed “Cedric Hartman Omaha.” Hartman (American, b. 1929) is a contemporary artist born in 1929. The lamps available in the sale are made of stainless steel, brass, and aluminum. They have a CO Reflector shield, with 120V Philips dual envelope halogen. The reflector rotates 155 degrees on the socket, and the socket rotates 180 degrees on a vertical pivot. The offered Persian tray has a highly decorated rim with a repousse technique of figures and flowers. The inner surface has incised decoration of foliage and a central motif of warriors and horses, probably from a battle scene. The weight of the silver tray is approximately 38.6 ounces.
