CHESTER, N.Y. – William Jenack Estate Appraisers and Auctioneers will hold a fine art and antique auction at their New York facility, and with on-line bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com on Sunday, April 1, commencing at 11 a.m. Eastern.
The fine art portion of the auction is perhaps the highlight with a large canvas Gathering Firewood by Henry Hadfield Cubley; an oil on canvas Madonna and Child, Italian School of the 19th century and signed verso F. Alinari; an oil on canvas, Happiness & Fortune by Anton Skorubsky Kandinsky; an acrylic on canvas White House and Bouquet by Peppino Gino Mangravite (signed/titled, estate #142); a wonderfully executed oil on panel by Franz Nowak; an oil on canvas The Beet Wagon by Frans Van Leemputten; oil on panel Winter in the Forest, signed Jan Stanislawski; an oil on canvas, courtyard with peacocks, by Douglas Arthur Teed; and a small work by George Nemethy, oil on panel, Sailing Sloop on the Hudson.
For the collector of Chinese objects we will be offering several lots of porcelain, hard stone, wood and paper. Always fascinating scholar’s rocks seem to capture a huge landscape in a single stone as with the mountainous view afforded by the Lingbi stone to be sold. Also in the stone area will be a set of four dendritic stone panels that suggest brush painted landscapes that naturally occur in the stone. One of the auctioneer’s favorite lots is a finely carved soapstone weathered log with a cicada perched upon it that is so realistically done one expects the insect to move. There will be several watercolor scrolls and a collection of porcelain from a former prominent New York, Madison Avenue dealer.
There will be over 50 lots of African and tribal art being offered including a number of vintage carved elephant ivory and ebony figures. Some of the more unusual ivory pieces being offered are candelabra, a large camel bridge, a pair of vases with carved alligators and a copy of the Egyptian bust of Nefertiti. Of the vintage masks, carvings and other objects being offered will represent the cultures of Senufo, Yoruba, Mokonde, Cameroon, Dogon, Bambara, Baule, Dan, Chamba and others.
As with all of Jenack’s sales there will be furniture, carpets, silver, bronzes and collectible glass including Steuben, Victorian satin glass, Richard, Peking and others.
Previews will be held at the William Jenack auction facility located at 62 Kings Highway Bypass, Chester NY 10918 daily beginning Wednesday, March 28, including the morning of the sale from 9 to 10:45 a.m.
