The art piece by Hildegard Hamilton (1898-1970) is one of the beautiful pieces presented in the auction characterized by subtle bright use of colors. Behind every painting, the painter had a wonderful story to unravel which is not very unlikely as she spent most of her adult life traveling and painting landscapes. The painter surrounded her paintings with pictures of beautiful places.
She stole the essence of the street corners and alleys and smearing it over her canvas. She often chose to capture the aesthetics of the place rather than the people. Her fondness of painting landscapes is what can be seen in most of his paintings. The estimated price for the painting was $2300-$500. The painting was sold for $189.
The following sculpture “La Retour de la Chasse,” was created by a French artisan, Alfred Dubucand (1828-1894). He was a splendid sculptor who mainly sculpted models in bronze during his lifetime. He drove his inspiration in order to make the subject seem lively. He was an artist who showed much of his enthusiasm in the realistic portrayal of animals.
He has the skill to capture the moment of their subjects. The estimated price for this rare beauty was $2,000-$2,500. It was sold at $2,268.
This beautiful look-alike pair of Zsolnay Art Nouveau chargers are perfect examples of decorated design. They have an eye-catching decoration at the rim that looks like a floral pattern. The light background in the center showcases a contrast effect to the overall piece.
It gives away an intricate sense of Art Nouveau element. The estimated price for this pair was $2,000-$3,000 and was sold for $2,835.
The sale also includes the artwork of a British painter, Charles W. Oswald who was celebrated for his exquisite oil paintings. He has given a good amount of depth in his painting—from hills to the animals. He mostly dedicated his time and effort into art and his career took off at 1890 and 1900.
