Shagal in Russia, but when he became a member of the Ecole de Paris, he adopted French citizenship and the French spelling of his name. Today, his work is highly collectible.
Another name that will be familiar to art aficionados is that of Joan Miro (Span., 1893-1983). An abstract aquatint etching hand-signed by the artist should garner $6,000-$8,000. Miro left his native Spain for Paris at age 26 and became friends with artists such as Pablo Picasso. He became renowned for his abstract curvilinear design paintings, collages and murals.
Another artwork expected to hit $6,000-$8,000 is a framed silkscreen by Friedensreich Hundertwasser (Austrian, 1928-2000). The son of a Jewish mother and a Christian father (who died when he was one), Hundertwasser was born in Vienna and studied at the Vienna Academy of Art. He left after only three months, but earned a reputation anyway as a fine modern painter.
The auction will also feature a 17th century unsigned Old Master oil painting of dancing villagers (est. $20,000-$30,000) and a pair of 17th or 18th century Italian baroque oil floral still lifes (est. $6,000-$8,000 each). Also sold will be a stunning turquoise and diamond 18kt white gold necklace suite and a 14kt gold diamond deco brooch necklace (est. $20,000-$30,000 each).
Previews will be held on Friday, Jan. 13, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday, Jan. 14, the date of sale, from 10 a.m. until the first gavel comes down at 1 p.m. in the main auction. Elite Decorative Arts will be exhibiting at the Miami Beach Antique Show (Feb. 2-6, 2012 -- Booths 2105, 2107 and 2109). The event bills itself as the world’s largest indoor antique show.
