After being expelled from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague for being the ringleader of a protest, Czech artist Antonín Chittussi supported himself by making illustrations for magazines such as The Czech Bee (Česká včela). He was soon after influenced by the work of the Barbizon School and became interested in landscapes. Later, after a move to Paris, Chittussi was further influenced by a major Impressionist exhibition. He adopted the style to create his own paintings. One of Antonín Chittussi’s Impressionist landscapes is currently up for bid in the New York City Estate Auction, presented by Showplace. Also available is a set of four seasonal allegory paintings from the French Neoclassical school.
Other items in the same sale include a Cartier Panthère yellow gold ladies watch, two large gilt-bronze and painted porcelain ebonized cabinets from the late 19th century, and a set of Reed & Barton sterling silver flatware with 158 pieces. Bidders can also consider several limited edition Montblanc Meisterstuck pens, two English Sheraton manner cabinets, Owens Pottery Arts and Crafts matte green vases, vintage leather gloves, and more.
