The upcoming Twentieth-Century Art & Design – Online Only sale, offered by Casco Bay Auctions, presents fine art alongside jewelry, furniture, and other decorative items. One of the available paintings, by Beverly Hallam, is titled Paperwhite’s Farewell I. An American printmaker and artist, Hallam often focused her work on oceans and rock formations. She particularly mastered and was best known for her detailed airbrush paintings of flowers.
Among the featured decorative art items, a LeCoultre Atmos clock by Jean-Léon Reutter stands out. Invented in 1928, the Atmos is driven by changes in ambient temperature. It holds a sealed capsule that expands as the temperature rises and contracts as it falls, winding the mainspring of the clock. Also available is a sculpture by Abe Ajay. Known for his shallow, boxlike wall constructions and collages, Ajay combined found objects, polyester resin, wood, canvas, and wire into his mixed-media constructions.
