In his 20s, Simon Tissot-Dupont was a photographer for Napoleon III, a position that allowed him to better understand the styles of the Parisian upper class. He soon founded his own company, S.T. Dupont, which produced luxury travel cases and, later, cigar lighters and cutters. A highlighted lot in the upcoming Treasure Chest: Online-Only Timed Auction, presented by Eldred’s, is an S.T. Dupont “Windsor Noir” lighter. This piece includes a black enamel center panel and comes to auction unused.
Several works of 20th-century fine and decorative art are also on offer in this event. Among the available paintings is John French Sloan’s Blonde Nude. Sloan was associated with the Ashcan School movement, which prioritized gritty, everyday life over traditional “highbrow” subjects. In particular, Sloan became known for his non-romanticized depictions of prostitutes. In Blonde Nude, a woman looks off in the distance, unaware or uncaring of the viewer’s gaze. Collectors can also consider Paleolithic Flux 1955 by 20th-century Abstract artist Charles Green Shaw. Register to bid on this or any other piece by visiting Invaluable.
