The play of light and shadow animates Michaan's September Gallery Auction. Sunbeams flood the canvas of Eric Zener's “One” ($10,000-$15,000), a superb example of the artist's signature swimming pool paintings. The auction features “Sunny Landscape” ($15,000-$20,000) by Maurice Braun (1877-1941), and works by other prominent early 20th Century Californians such as Maurice Logan and Carl Sammons, as well as a Leroy Neiman pencil drawing and Picasso's lithograph, “Fumeur” ($1,000-$1,500). Rare treasures of fine crystal and glass from Steuben, Baccarat, Tiffany, Lalique, and Daum are especially radiant in the early autumn sunlight; a Tiffany Studios Favrile lamp is estimated at $5,000-$7,000 and Steuben's museum-quality Swan Bowl is $12,000-$15,000. September's glittering period jewelry includes Edwardian and Victorian bracelets, an Art Deco star ruby ring ($4,000-$6,000) and a Belle Époque pearl and diamond ring ($500-$700). Sparks of brilliant light fly from an estate diamond ring of more than three and a half carats ($18,000-$25,000). Sterling silver highlights include Schofield's famous “Baltimore Rose” flatware ($2,000-$3,000). Fine furniture ranges from Chinese rare Huanghuali and Zitan wood altar tables to Hans Wegner's Mid-Century Modern teak and woven cord dining chairs. The large selection of Asian art and collectibles includes books, prints, and memorabilia of excellent provenance by Zhang Daqian, one of the 20th century's most admired Chinese artists.
