Featuring Property from the Collection of Tom Britt

and vignettes styled by Sarah Bray, Interiors Editor, Modern Luxury, and Anne Spilman, Designer

 Christie’s announces the summer sale of Interiors taking place on August 22, 2018 in New York. The auction presents over 400 lots of furniture, decorative objects, and fine art, led by a selection of Property from the Collection of Tom Britt. Taking place concurrently is the online sale The Collection of Melva Bucksbaum: Design and Interiors (August 16-23). Both auctions will be on view at Christie’s New York August 17-22.

Designer and collector, Tom Britt’s interiors are consistently dynamic, inventive, and optimistic, with palettes presenting a rainbow of primary colors often emboldened with splashes of glossy black or brilliant white. Featured in the sale are furnishings emblematic of his signature aesthetic, blending together luxuriously gilded European antiques with Indian temple fragments, Chinese tables flecked with mother of pearl, and consoles modeled after the capitals that grace ancient buildings in the Middle East.

Additionally, Christie’s worked alongside tastemakers Sarah Bray, Interiors Editor at Modern Luxury, and Anne Spilman, designer, to select objects from the sale and create a series of vignettes set against gem-colored walls enhanced by signature Schumacher prints. For more information about their selections and insights into how to incorporate antiques into diverse, modern interiors, see link to video on Christies.com.

THE COLLECTION OF MELVA BUCKSBAUM:

DECORATIVE ARTS AND DESIGN

Online | 16-23 August 2018

 Taking place August 16-23 and on view alongside the Interiors sale, is the online sale The Collection of Melva Bucksbaum: Decorative Arts and Design, which presents over 100 lots of decorative art and design featuring an exceptional collection of Boch Frères Keramis ceramics, European silver, 19th/20th Century design, Chinese furniture and textiles, and a selection of rare art books.

Across her many years in philanthropy, leadership and collecting, Melva Bucksbaum stood as one of the art world’s most beloved figures. Tireless in her support of artists and their work, she held an unwavering belief in the power of the creative process to transform individuals and communities. Seeking to share her passion for art with all, her unshakeable belief in the artistic process led to what is perhaps her greatest public feat: the Bucksbaum Award, established in 2000.

Nowhere was Melva Bucksbaum’s commitment to art more apparent than in her private collection of fine art, decorative art and design, displayed with pride at her residence in New York, where she demonstrated how to truly live with art every day. Additional property from the collection will be sold in October 2018, in a dedicated online sale The Collection of Melva Bucksbaum: Post-War and Contemporary Art, Photographs and Prints (October 16-24).

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.

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.

Rubens: Portrait of the Artist’s Daughter, Clara Serena – A Rare Glimpse into the Private Work of One of The Masters of Western Art

RUBENS:

Portrait of the Artist’s Daughter, Clara Serena

A RARE GLIMPSE INTO THE PRIVATE WORK OF ONE OF THE MASTERS OF WESTERN ART –

 Christie’s will offer Portrait of Clara Serena, the Artist’s Daughter by Peter Paul Rubens in the London Old Masters Evening Sale on 5 July, during Classic Week (estimate: £3-5 million). Never intended for public display, this seminal work offers a rare glimpse into the private life of the greatest artist of the Northern Baroque. The portrait is on public view in New York until 5 May, later going on view in Hong Kong from 24 to 28 May, before being exhibited in London in the lead up to the sale.

Henry Pettifer, Head of Old Master Paintings, Christie’s London: “Rubens’ paintings of his family members, freer and bolder than those of his wealthy clientele, count amongst his greatest achievements in portraiture. This spontaneous likeness of Clara Serena, his only daughter with his wife Isabella Brant, painted around the time of her untimely death at the age of twelve, is extraordinary for its intimacy and timeless appeal.  Its appearance on the market this summer comes after the picture has featured in recent high profile exhibitions at the Rubenshuis in Antwerp and the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh, and it is the first major work by Rubens to appear at Christie’s in London since the record breaking sale of Lot and his Daughters in July 2016”.
