Welcome to Modern Art + Design, Bukowskis anticipated auction dedicated to the pioneers of modern art and the most sought-after design of the 20th century.

Bukowskis are pleased to present a rich selection from the Swedish students of Matisse, where Sigrid Hjertén's masterpiece "The Blue Locomotive" from 1919 is one of the highlights of the auction. For a few years (1908-1911), the French artist Henri Matisse led the independent art-school Academié Matisse in Paris, where some 40 Swedish artists studied. The academy was of great importance for the students' future artistic expression. Additional highlights from some of these artists are Nils Dardel's "Ekipaget", Einar Jolin's "Liggande Modell", and Leander Engström's "Portrait of Countess Bille-Brahe".

The art department also includes significant works by members of the Halmstad group, where Waldemar Lorentzon's "Street musicians" is the most outstanding piece of art. Göteborgskoloristerna (a group of Swedish artists from the west coast) is well represented with several prominent works by, among others, Carl Kylberg.

The furniture and design department includes a wide selection from the golden age of design history. An unusual example is the iconic armchair "Chieftain" / "Chief Justice" by Finn Juhl, with an estimate of 600,000 - 800,000 SEK. Finn Juhl is considered to be one of the most influential designers in Danish furniture design, the Chieftain Chair is considered to be one of Juhl's absolute masterpieces.

The department also offers a rich selection of internationally sought-after Axel Einar Hjorth objects as well as classics from Hans J Wegner, Fritz Hansen, Bruno Mathsson and Josef Frank of course. See also a fantastic bird sculpture by Birger Kaipiainen as well as exquisite rugs by Märta Måås-Fjetterström and Barbro Nilson. Also unique to this spring's auction is the extensive collection of glass, which brilliantly shows the glass development from early Art Nouveau to the 1990s.
