Two-Day Crescent City Sale Features Luxury Jewelry, Paul Frankl Furniture, and American PaintingsJan 20, 2023 11:00 EST
A wide range of fine art, jewelry, furniture, and decorative art items will be available in Crescent City Auction Gallery’s upcoming two-day sale. Among the top lots from the first session is a bamboo living room suite designed by Austrian-American maker Paul Frankl. Closely associated with the Art Deco movement, Frankl designed furniture using unusual materials that embraced a luxe brand of American Modernism. The available living room set was produced around 1950. A bold flower print decorates the blue-gray background of the cushions. Other notable lots from the first day of the event include a 14-karat yellow gold and ruby link necklace and a pierced triangular pendant necklace featuring a trillion-cut tanzanite.
The second session of the Winter Estates Auction particularly highlights fine paintings and art prints. Among them is a 1987 untitled painting on paper by Keith Haring. Signed by the artist along the bottom, this piece shows a Mickey Mouse-shaped red figure falling downward while clutching fistfuls of cash. This work also includes a signature from Haring’s former studio manager and the executive director emeritus of the Keith Haring Foundation, Julia Gruen. Collectors can also consider a woodland painting by Louisiana-based artist Robert Malcolm Rucker. The artist was an American Impressionist who used his skills to capture and uplift the culture of his community. The available painting depicts a weathered cabin nestled by a pond.
