A collotype print of Andrew Wyeth’s The Reefer is one of the highlighted lots in the upcoming Luxe Boutique Auction, presented by Pook & Pook, Inc. In the piece, a man wearing a reefer jacket walks down the stairs. In front of the figure, the viewer can observe rays of sunlight streaming into the room through a small window. Throughout his career, Wyeth attempted to depict, in his words, “… the real feeling of a subject, all the texture around it.”
The upcoming event offers over 600 pieces of fine and decorative art, jewelry, furniture, and more. This includes British-Mexican artist Leonora Carrington’s lithograph titled Menashe y Rabbi Mendl. Carrington was among the leaders of Surrealism, opposing the constraints of the rational mind. Her art often explored the concepts of gender identity and feminism, along with themes from Celtic mythology. Collectors can also consider Reed & Barton’s sterling silver five-piece tea service. One of the oldest silversmiths in the United States, Reed & Barton was founded in 1824 by Isaac Babbitt before selling to Henry G. Reed and Charles E. Barton.
