NEW YORK - Roland Auction of New York City will hold its next auction on Saturday, Feb. 16, at 11 a.m. EST. With well over 500 lots of impressive fine art, furniture and decorations, the auction promises to offer many choice lots for both the collector and dealer. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live biddingThe emphasis of the sale is its formidable collection of paintings, which includes examples by such notable artists as David Burliuk, Henriette Ronner Knip, John Costigan, Andre Marchand, Emil Carlsen, Fritz Thaulow, Isaac Soyer, Leroy Neiman, Arbit Blatas, Hilda B. Kayn, Charles Fazzino, and many other luminaries. Most of these sought after works were removed from a single collection and were acquired over many decades.
Another interesting feature of the sale is a large and significant collection of Native American ceramics and blankets. The ceramics, which are Hopi and Navaho in origin, offer a variety of form and decoration. Among the array of woven blankets are many examples labeled with the name of the weaver.
As always, there is a good selection of American, English and French period-style tables, sets of chairs, sideboards, occasional tables and more. Fine bronze and crystal chandeliers, sconces and lamps are included.
One of the areas of collecting for which Roland has become well known is that of modern design. This auction includes a healthy mix of Art Deco and mid-century modern furniture and decorations but perhaps the most notable inclusion is a serpentine sofa and love seat by legendary designer Vladimir Kagan. The pristine pieces (lots 221 and 222) are iconic examples of modern design by a true master.
No estate sale would be complete without an offering of estate silver and jewelry, and Roland has all bases covered.
"We're have a good sale coming together and we're looking forward to seeing old and new faces at the exhibition, said co-owner Robert Roland. "We're proud to maintain long-term relationships with our clients."
