Viviano Codazzi Paintings, Royal Copenhagen Porcelain, and More From ShowplaceJul 11, 2021 12:00 EDT
Mythical Roman scenes, gladiatorial combats in the Colosseum, classical ruins, and churches come alive in Viviano Codazzi paintings. The Italian painter (1604 – 1670) is best known for his capriccio paintings that mixed architecture and fantasy. Two Viviano Codazzi capriccio paintings will be available in an upcoming Showplace auction. They combine classical architecture with an imagined landscape. One depicts figures by a fountain while the other shows a man and dog next to an old archway. The two paintings are from a private residence at the Pierre Hotel and were formerly sold at Christie’s.
For watch connoisseurs, a Patek Philippe ladies wristwatch is available. The watch is an 18-karat yellow gold Calatrava stamped with the seal of Geneva. The classic round design has 18 jewels, a lizard leather strap, and a manual winding movement. This sale will also include Royal Copenhagen porcelain dinner plates. A set of four “Flora Danica” plates with pierced rims is available in the estate auction. They are hand-painted with botanical scenes. The underside carries the species names in Latin and maker’s marks. The auction brings 280 lots of fine art, porcelain, jewelry, and accessories from various estates in New York City. Visit Bidsquare for more details.
