JUNE 6, 2018 | NEW YORK

Christie’s announces the spring sale Interiors: New York Visions taking place on June 6, 2018 in New York. The auction encompasses collections from three celebrated style and design icons including The Estate of Kenneth Jay Lane, The Collection of Arnold Scaasi and Parker Ladd, and Robert Couturier: Elements of Style, presenting over 350 lots of decorative art and fine art from their collections. Additionally, over 30 signed pieces of jewellery are being offered from the Kenneth Jay Lane, Inc. Archives including a selection shown at the Rhode Island School of Design exhibition, Fabulous Fakes: Jewelry by Kenneth Jay Lane (2007-08). The full sale will be on view at Christie’s New York June 2-5.

THE ESTATE OF KENNETH JAY LANE | LOTS 1-155

Jewellery designer Kenneth Jay Lane embodied glamour, elegance, and joie de vivre. A self-declared “fabulous fake” and unwavering proponent of fashion as fantasy, he presided over a moment in which the world’s most stylish women chose to adorn themselves in Lane’s bold masterworks of costume jewellery. Lane’s insatiably curious eye allowed him to curate a vision of elegance that extended through to his personal collecting. From the late 1970s, he filled his imposing Stanford White-designed Park Avenue residence with a striking assemblage of treasures, summed-up by Lane’s fanciful phrase: “I always think of myself as living in a tent.”

Surrounded by decorative arts and Orientalist paintings hung salon-style in his double-height living room, Lane inhabited a unique mise-en-scène. Included in the sale are 150 lots from his collection spanning contemporary and 19th century fine art, European and English furniture, continental silver and ceramics, Asian works of art, costume jewellery and memorabilia. The sale will benefit WNET New York Public Media.

THE COLLECTION OF ARNOLD SCAASI AND PARKER LADD | LOTS 189-272

Arnold Scaasi and Parker Ladd were passionate individuals who strove for excellence in their chosen careers. Mr. Scaasi attained acclaim as a couturier who dressed First Ladies, socialites and celebrities for five decades. Mr. Parker climbed the heights of New York’s publishing industry at Charles Scribner & Sons and the Association of American Publishers to work with some of the most celebrated authors of the second half of the 20th century.

Together they collected a diverse group of fine art and decorative art that reflects their intellectual curiosity and exuberant approach to life. Included in the Christie’s sale is a selection of 20th century fine art and sculpture, including works by Louise Nevelson and Paul Jenkins, European furniture and decorative arts, silver and ceramics.

ROBERT COUTURIER: ELEMENTS OF STYLE | LOTS 273-390

Robert Couturier, renowned designer and architect, has maintained his place at the top of his profession for decades. Couturier’s curated eye balances his deep understanding of the classical, acquired at the Ecole Camondo in his native Paris, combined with his forward-looking appreciation of contemporary art, design, and photography.

Christie’s has worked in close conversation with Robert to curate a selection reflecting his own inimitable and witty perspective, culling pieces from his fashionable New York apartment. Offered in the sale is a selection of 20th century photographs, design, including works by Jacques Adnet, Andre Sornay and Armand Albert Rateau, European furniture and decorative arts, silver, ceramics and glass, Asian works of art and carpets. Additionally, Robert will be co-hosting the Christie’s Lates event on Monday, June 4 in celebration of this sale.

Christie’s Russian Art Sale

ENCHANTMENTS ACROSS THE AGES

– RUSSIAN ART AUCTION –

4 JUNE 2018, LONDON

 On 4th June, Christie’s Russian Art sale will offer a selection of works by numerous highly sought-after artists including Boris Grigoriev, Alexandre Iacovleff, Konstantin Somov, Nicholas Roerich, Dmitry Stelletsky and Yuri Annenkov. Session II will offer Russian Works of Art, including over forty works from the famous workshop of Fabergé, Imperial jewels, rare bronzes, Soviet Porcelain and works by the Imperial Porcelain Factory.

A highlight of the sale, Boris Grigoriev’s La Mère Agathe is one of the finest and most characteristic of Grigoriev’s Breton cycle paintings of the 1920s, which was exhibited at several major exhibitions including at the artist’s solo show in the New Gallery in New York (5th December 1924 – 2nd January 1925). As evident in the above painting, Grigoriev took care to capture his sitters and this work successfully conveys a strong sense of character in the elderly Breton woman (illustrated above, estimate: £250,000 – 350,000). Brittany, with its archaic cultural context, the crystalline clarity of medieval architectural forms, and the colourful richness of summer landscapes, provided Grigoriev with novel artistic materials, subjects, textures, and colours. Showcasing the painting at the 24th Annual International Exhibition in Pittsburgh in 1925 and subsequently at Grand Central Art Galleries in New York in 1926 cemented its success and attracted the attention of an illustrious collector called Edgar J. Kaufmann (1885-1955).

The Mark of a Genius: Rembrandt’s ‘Christ Presented to The People’ from The Collection of The Late Samuel Josefowitz

The Mark of a Genius: Rembrandt’s ‘Christ Presented to The People’ from The Collection of The Late Samuel Josefowitz

THE MARK OF A GENIUS:
REMBRANDT’S
‘CHRIST PRESENTED TO THE PEOPLE’
FROM THE COLLECTION OF THE LATE SAMUEL JOSEFOWITZ
-THE LAST KNOWN FIRST STATE OF THIS REMARKABLE DRYPOINT IN PRIVATE HANDS –

Christ Presented to The People (‘Ecce Homo’) is considered to be among Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn’s (1606-1669) most significant achievements in any medium (estimate on request: in the region of $3-5million). One of the world’s most versatile, innovative, and influential artists, Rembrandt is viewed by many as the greatest printmaker of any generation. Epitomizing an artist at the height of his powers, both artistically and technically, this extraordinary drypoint of 1655 dates from his third decade as a printmaker. Executed on a monumental scale, the present work is one of only eight known impressions of the celebrated first state of this print and is the last known example in private hands. The other seven known impressions of this state are in major museum collections: Kupferstichkabinett der Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, The British Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Ashmolean Museum, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Musée du Louvre (Rothschild Collection) and the Graphische Sammlung Albertina.

Offered from The Collection of the late Samuel Josefowitz, it is on public view at Christie’s New York until 5 May; going on view in Hong Kong from 24 to 28 May and then in London from 15 to 28 June and 30 June to 5 July, ahead of being offered for sale during Christie’s Classic Week in London, in the Old Masters Evening Sale on 5 July.

Jussi Pylkkanen, Christie’s Global President: “Sam Josefowitz was amongst the greatest Old Master Print collectors of his generation. Sixty years of connoisseurship and enthusiasm for Rembrandt led him to create an outstanding Rembrandt collection and the eventual acquisition of this masterpiece, which is the last known example of the drypoint in private hands. This impression is a celebration of the skills of Rembrandt, the master printmaker, and Sam Josefowitz, the most scholarly and respected of collectors.”
