Nye & Company's Estate Treasures Auction, June 2-3, Features A Selection of Fine and Decorative Art

Bloomfield, NJ, USA, May 19, 2021 -- Nye & Company Auctioneers’ two-day, online Estate Treasures auction, slated for Wednesday and Thursday, June 2nd and 3rd at 10 am Eastern time both days, is sure to delight collectors, designers, dealers and institutions alike. The catalog includes an exceptionally strong selection of blue-chip artists’ names and a large selection of both traditional and modern furniture, rugs and lighting from private New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Long Island households.

The fine art is quite diverse in its scope and breadth and ranges from the 17th century through the 21st century.  There is an extraordinary group of paintings from a private East Coast collection. Highlights include a terrific watercolor and ink drawing of a Venetian canal scene signed by Francesco Lazzaro Guardi (Italian, 1712-1793).  The work captures the vibrance of this active city of water that served as a major financial and trading hub.

Also offered is a fabulous oil on canvas depicting a bucolic scene with a figure preparing a cart for market, attributed to Thomas Gainsborough (English, 1727-1788).  The painting retains an exhibition label from the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and captures rural life in the 18th century.

Further headlining the auction are works from the Steve and Stephanie Alpert collection. Steve Alpert demonstrated unbridled enthusiasm for all types of fine and decorative art. He and Stephanie are known in collecting circles, and their passion for collecting shines through in each object they collected. Their support and patronage of contemporary artists is nothing short of amazing.

From the Alpert holdings, one will find numerous examples of contemporary photography by artists such as Harry Bowers, Boyd Webb, Ke Francis and Betty Connors.   These works are exceptional and are wonderfully expressive and evocative. The collection also offers contemporary works by artists such as Robert Gordy, Doug Anderson, Leonard Baskin and Gerry Bergstein.

An exciting selection of fresh to the market paintings is also in the sale. This small group is being deaccessioned from the Charles Shultz House to benefit the collections fund of the non-profit Montclair History Center in Montclair, N.J.
