The upcoming auction presented by Christie’s, The Collector: Property from Four American Collections, offers a wide array of fine art and furniture from around the world. With an estimate of $20,000, Claude Venard’s Femme et Nature Morte (Woman and Still Life) is one of the standout items in the auction. Venard, a popular French post-Cubist and still-life painter from the 20th century, pushed the boundaries of Cubism and challenged the existing art community to better explore colors and angles.
A North Italian walnut bookcase also stands out. Built during the late 18th century, this bookcase holds portrait medallions, sliding compartments, and an optical illusion scene on the lower drawers. Also of interest is an elaborate pair of Italian cut-glass chandeliers. To explore these lots and many more, visit Christie’s and register to bid.
