A leading lot of the upcoming Palm Beach Collections auction, presented by Hindman, is a sculpture carved by Arno Breker. Originally from Germany, Breker abandoned his studies in 1924 and moved to Paris. While there, he began to meet with artists such as Pablo Picasso. Breker would later play a significant role in the development of art and architecture in Nazi Germany. His sculptures were popular during and beyond the Third Reich. The available sculpture depicts the ideal Aryan man.
Offering items ranging from antiques to furniture, this auction includes 300 lots. Among the leading items is a 22-piece set of Meissen porcelain. Dating back to the 19th century, these figures depict a fully-clothed band of monkeys singing and playing instruments. An oil painting by Hyperrealist painter Yrjö Edelmann will also be presented. Influenced by French Surrealism and its dreamlike motifs, Edelmann helped develop the style of Hyperrealism. Frequently depicting packages, wrapping paper, and pieces of string, his paintings play with shape and shade. Visit Bidsquare to browse the full catalog and register to bid.
