Jorge Zalszupin was a Polish Jew who moved to Romania to seek refuge during World War II. After studying in Romania, he left on tour to study Brazilian architecture. The post-war development in Brazil provided Zalszupin an opportunity to create his modern and sensual furniture designs. The upcoming Showplace Antique + Design Center auction presents T Invertido, a Brazilian mid-century modern sofa by Zalszupin. The sofa has caramel tufted leather upholstery on a chromed metal frame. Furniture designs by the Modernist furniture maker show a balance of his architectural and furniture-making techniques.
Another highlight is an acrylic and collage piece titled Suits by second-generation Pop artist Donald Baechler. Baechler’s collage-paintings reflect his passion for collecting objects in what he refers to as an “illusion of history.” The available 1991 acrylic, gesso, and paper collage by Baechler shows his abstract style, often compared to the works of Keith Haring and Jean Dubuffet. Also showcased is a 1993 stylized figure painting by Russian Surrealist artist Mihail Chemiakin. The New York City Estate Auction also offers Judaica Russian silverware, bronze sculptures, Swiss and French coins, mantel clocks, and Chinese porcelain.
