The American artist Louis Michel Eilshemius earned critical acclaim for his work relatively late in life. In the 1930s, he caught the attention of the collector and critic Duncan Phillips (of the Phillips Collection), who gave him a steady rise to fame. A landscape painting by Eilshemius will be featured in the upcoming Online Only Decorative Arts auction, offered by Pook & Pook, Inc. The sale will include a selection of furniture, service ware, and armoires.
Israel Abramofsky’s Peasant Woman is also featured. Originally from Russia, Abramofsky was trained in Paris before settling in the United States. He is known for his works revealing Jewish life in Eastern Europe. The available painting shows an older woman leaning on a stick. Other lots of interest include a pair of Chinese armorial plates. First appearing in the early 18th century, armorial porcelain was made to order with European coats-of-arms. Visit Bidsquare to browse the full catalog and register to bid.
