Known as Clodion, Claude Michel (1738 – 1814) was a French sculptor who favored the Rococo style. He was particularly noted for his terracotta and bronze works. One of the highlights of the upcoming New York City Estate Auction, presented by Showplace Antique + Design Center, is a Clodion bronze sculpture. This figural group is arranged in a Bacchanalia scene, identifiable by the groups of satyrs and clusters of grapes. Another key lot is a Hamilton Gibbs Wilde oil on canvas painting titled Granada Market. A 19th-century painting, this depicts an open-air market scene. It bears period labels with handwritten inscriptions on the reverse, including ones from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Great Central Fair.
A noteworthy jewelry lot is a Lynda Benglis sterling silver Olympia brooch pin. Known for her poured latex sculptures, Benglis is an American sculptor and visual artist. The auction also showcases a Maison Francois Daide French parquetry cabinet with a shaped white marble top. The piece has a swing door cabinet, gilt bronze mounts, and claw feet. Another lot of interest is a marble and enamel mantel clock designed with aesthetic movement. It depicts an artist, a model, and a lute player, as well as brass finials and Corinthian columns on the front. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
