Oscar Howe was a Yankton Sioux painter from South Dakota, best known for his influence on contemporary Native American art. During his childhood, Howe was often sick and therefore stayed home learning traditional art with his grandmother. His paintings would later transition from a Santa Fe-style to a more mature look achieved with tempera and casein. The upcoming auction, presented by Cottone Auctions, will offer Umini Wacipi (War and Peace Dance) by Howe. This 1958 casein and gouache abstract painting shows pristine lines, vibrant colors, and dynamic motions.
Another highlight of the auction is a sterling silver gold plated flatware set by Birks. Henry Birks first founded the company in 1879 as a small jewelry shop in Montreal. In the 1950s, the company overtook Roden Bros. Ltd., which manufactured silverware and medals. Today, Birks silverware remains known for its intricate patterns and high quality. An ancient gold inlaid Persian Qajar helmet and shield, several antique carpets, vintage toys, and earthenware pieces will be featured as well.
