Highlights Modern Art + Design

Bukowskis Modern Art + Design Sale features a stunning selection of paintings, works on paper and sculpture by leading international artists of the twentieth century.

The exceptional sale includes a brilliant red “Concetto Spaziale” by Lucio Fontana, an intriguing late portrait by Pablo Picasso from 1969, and a magnificent large-scale bathroom scene by Fernando Botero.

Enriched by Marc Chagall’s dreamy L’artiste et l’ange”, a unique wooden relief by Sérgio Camargo and a Wifredo Lam painting from his Albissola studio, this sale brings together works across mediums and genres.

Further highlights that include works by Fernand Léger, Antoni Tàpies, Kurt Schwitters, Asger Jorn, Fernandez Arman, and Francois Morellet are accompanied by a strong selection of modern sculpture, and an array of Cubist and Surrealist works.

The design section contains interesting furniture and applied art that represent the development of furniture design in the Nordic region during most of the 20th century. Around 20 items, which have all been previously owned by Svensk Tenn’s Estrid Erickson, are included in the auction. The different types of objects clearly show what is still significant today for Firma Svenskt Tenn, for instance a broad mix of timeless objects that never seems to be outdated and constantly awakens the desire among new generations.

Further highlights in the design section are Gustaf Fjaestad's sculpted and carved furniture from the beginning of the 20th century, alongside Axel Einar Hjorth's furniture group "Sandhamn", the only model among the Sportstuge furniture that were most likely manufactured at Nordiska Kompaniet’s own workshops.

When it comes to pottery and stoneware, Bukowskis have the joy of selling fantastic items from some of our most reputable Scandinavian potters from Gustavsberg, Wilhelm Kåge, Berndt Friberg and Stig Lindberg. Michael Schilkin, Birger Kaipiainen and Rut Bryk represent Finland, while Axel Salto represents Denmark. Highlights include an extremely rare dragonfish by Wilhelm Kåge in "Farsta-blue" glaze.
