Tom Slaughter was an American artist best known for his brightly colored prints and paintings. He often captured modern urban life through geometric lines and patches of colors. Much like Stuart Davis, Slaughter blurred the line between commercial design and fine art. The upcoming New York City Estate Auction, presented by Auctions at Showplace, will feature an acrylic painting from Tom Slaughter. Executed in 1990, the Pop Art painting depicts a man, house, and water tower.
An 18-karat yellow gold ladies dress watch by Bueche Girod is another lot of interest. Bueche Girod is a watchmaking company established in 1947 by Vital Bueche. Bueche was widely recognized for designing elaborate, jewelry-like timepieces. He also pioneered the moon-phase design and plain calendar feature. The available piece features a florentine textured bracelet and mechanical movement. A Korean ceramic moon jar from the Joseon dynasty is also highlighted. This monochromatic jar is characterized by a settled base and lunar arc. Interested collectors can explore the full catalog and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
