Sarasota Estate Auction to Offer Jack Squier Fiberglass Sculpture, Antique Chinese Export Silver Bowl, and MoreMay 20, 2023 11:00 EDT
Jack Squier (1927 – 2015) was considered one of the leading sculpture artists of the 20th century. Squier earned his degree from Indiana University in 1950. Two years later, he got his Cornell MFA and began teaching at Cornell. He developed an innovative sculptural style in media, often experimenting with wood, bronze, and polyester resin. An example of his work is up for bid during Day One of the Monumental Two-Day Sterling Silver Fine Art & Antiques Auction, offered by Sarasota Estate Auction. The Torso, a black large fiberglass sculpture by Squier, was rendered by the artist in 1966. A modernist-painted bronze and steel sculpture of a male figure in a photographer’s stance is another sculpture highlight. Created by Spanish-born artist Aurora Cañero Lopez, the piece is titled Fotografo II.
The first session of this sale features modern art, design, and antiques, while Day Two particularly features sterling silver and jewelry. Other notable lots include an antique Chinese export silver bowl with two ornate dragon handles, a canvas by artist Jorge Blanco from his self-portrait series, an Imperial Iris Persian glass sculpture by American artist Dale Chihuly, and a collection of chandeliers, rings, and dinner plates.
