The New York School of Abstract Expressionism was a major art movement in the post-war era. California-born artist Taro Yamamoto belonged to this school. One of his Modern Abstract oil paintings will be featured in the upcoming New York Estate Auction, presented by Showplace Antique + Design Center. Another leading lot is a painting by George W. Waters. Belonging to the Hudson River School, the oil on canvas work is titled Bringing the Herd Back from Pasture. It depicts a shepherd with his cows on a mountainous landscape.
Another highlight of the auction is a Rolex men’s watch from the mid-1950s. The Oyster Perpetual Explorer has a honeycomb dial, 25 jewels, and automatic movements. An Edwardian 14-karat white gold filigree ring with a round, brilliant-cut diamond in the center represents the jewelry lots in this sale. Also showcased is a floor lamp with a wrought iron base and floral and spiral motifs, designed in the manner of Edgar Brandt. An antique wall-mounted console table, carved with acanthus leaves, shells, swirls, and a human face, is offered as well. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
