Art from Skagen
What better way to welcome the spring than with art from the famous artists’ colony in
Skagen? Blue skies, clear water and women in light robes certainly feature in a
great many of the auction’s paintings created by some of the biggest names in
Danish art. This is especially true of the collection of the well known Skagen family Holst.
It’s not every day you see world-class jewellery on the Danish market! You will now,
however, when we offer a unique collection of extravagant diamond jewellery –
all with unusually fine cuts, clarity and high carats. They come from the
bankruptcy estate of Stein Bagger and IT Factory, and are being sold at the
request of the Attorney General.
Robert Jacobsen 100 years
2012 marks the centenary of one of the heavyweights of Danish art. The man in question is
“Big Robert”, alias Robert Jacobsen (1912-93), and we will be celebrating an
outstanding contribution to European art with 40 of his works. The pieces
featured are wide-ranging – from lesser known paintings and his first attempts
at sculpture in wood from the 1930s, to the perfectly executed iron sculptures
from the 1950s and onwards.
True to form, the auction also features world class Danish design. With an arm chair
from 1953, you have the opportunity to become the owner of one of Hans J.
Wegner’s (1914-2007) rarest pieces of furniture. The chair makes strong
references to the famous “Peacock” chair, and only ten of them were made by the
architect’s longstanding collaborator, cabinetmaker Johannes Hansen.
The versatile Johan Rohde
One of the early names in modern Danish design is the versatile Johan Rohde (1856-1935).
Not only was he a fierce art critic, but he also mastered with great
superiority many forms of artistic expression – including painting, silverware
design and not least furniture design. Included in the auction is his unique
set of furniture from 1898.
