COMPRISED OF TWO PRIVATE AMERICAN COLLECTIONS OF ICONIC FRENCH DESIGN
WORKS BY CHAREAU, DUNAND, FRANK, GRAY, LEGRAIN, LALANNE, PUIFORCAT, ROYÈRE, RUHLMANN
Christie’s announces the spring sale of Design taking place on June 20, 2018, at Rockefeller Plaza. The auction is comprised of two private American collections with a curated focus on works by some of the most iconic names of French design. The artists featured include Pierre Chareau, Jean Dunand, Jean-Michel Frank, Eileen Gray, François-Xavier Lalanne, Pierre Legrain, Jean Puiforcat, Jean Royère, and Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, who are among the most representative of an era in which France led the world as a hub of creativity of the highest quality and sophistication, a period of little more than a decade through which the country’s output attracted the attention of an appreciative, elite international clientele.
Beth Vilinsky, Senior Specialist, Design, remarks: “The appearance at auction of two collections such as these, comprising works of the highest caliber constitutes an event of real significance. We are delighted and honored to unveil and present these works from two notable collections in a focused sale to allow these masterpieces of French design to be in conversation and present a comprehensive look at this important moment of design history.”
