Visions of Collecting: Royal and Aristocratic, An Important Private Collection

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 1 settembre 2019

London – On the 19 September, Christie’s will offer Visions of Collecting: Royal and Aristocratic, An Important Private Collection. Comprising 350 lots, this collection reflects a fascination with both Royal provenance – with objects from the British and other European Royal families – and Britain’s great country houses. The breadth of furniture, paintings, ceramics, sculpture, tapestries, silver, objects and works of art, lighting and soft furnishings, are united by their romantic and historic past, which have been skilfully and imaginatively woven into a kaleidoscopic vision, Royal and aristocratic, grand and exotic, ornamental and practical, to be enjoyed and treasured again. Leading the sale is Corso auf dem Monte Pincio, 1911 by Max Liebermann, which was owned by Paul Cassirer, the influential modern art dealer and publisher (estimate: £200,000-300,000). The Collection is expected to realise in excess of £2 million.Charles Cator, Deputy Chairman, Christie’s International: “There is always a vision behind any collection, a desire to create, to improve, to beautify. So it was with this intriguing and diverse group of works of art, assembled with an eclectic but immensely discerning eye over more than thirty years. If there is one theme that stands out, the leitmotif linking all these objects together, it is provenance. Where things come from, where they are going – these objects are on their journey just as we are. Their past life, who has owned and enjoyed them, the palaces and great houses they have adorned, is all part of their story and their appeal – the romance of objects.”

Dance of colours

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 maggio 2009

danceHamburg until 16/8/2009. Hamburger Kunsthalle Glockengiesserwall –  Nijinsky’s eye and abstraction Curators of the exhibition: Prof. Dr. Hubertus Gaßner und Dr. Daniel Koep the Russian dancer Vaslaw Nijinsky (1889-1950) and the ballet company Les Ballets Russes had their European premiere in Paris. Nijinsky immediately became an unrivalled star on the stages of Europe, and ranks as the most important dancer of the twentieth century until today. Apart from his exceptional career as a dancer and choreographer, Nijinsky also created large numbers of coloured paintings and gouaches in 1918 and 1919. These works are here for the first time presented comprehensively. With finely-drawn coloured circles and ellipses and strongly-coloured plane surfaces, Nijinsky produced series of images where space and line are interwoven and rhythm and colour are transformed into a painted choreography of intense emotions.  The exhibition offers an entirely new perspective on the origins of abstraction from dance. It is a unique contribution to the worldwide events that mark the centenary of the Ballets Russes’ spectacular debut in Paris. The historic personality of Nijinsky, the outstanding dancer of the twentieth-century, comes alive in a separate section of the exhibition in photographs, posters, paintings and sculptures by leading artists of Nijinsky’s time, on loan from the private collection of John Neumeier.
