Painted in the 1960s in Spain, her vibrant landscapes were so well-received by the local inhabitants that Stern quickly became a point of interest. She was named "La Picasso" in the local press and even held a broadcast in English which was then translated into Spanish. ..So you see - where I go to - I still cause a bit of an uproar."

Suzuki Chōkichi, who made the present pair of vases, was one of the greatest Japanese craftsman-entepreneurs of the later nineteenth century. He started his own bronze-casting business in Edo (present-day Tokyo) at the age of 18, around the very start of the Meiji era, and in 1874 began to work for Kiryū Kōshō Kaisha (The Pioneering Craft and Commerce Company), a public-private trading partnership set up to promote Japanese crafts overseas (see also lots 1 and 10). During his eight years at the Company Suzuki created several major sculptural masterpieces that have found their way into foreign museums. In 1896, Suzuki was appointed to the order of Teishitsu Gigeiin (Artist-Craftsman to the Imperial Household).⠀

Known as the “wild man of Pouilly,” Didier passed away tragically in 2008, leaving his son to carry the torch for the domaine, which is biodynamic since 1993 and known for wines of incredible precision and expression of Pouilly terroir.

"It has been said that faith is like an oak tree, it grows steadily but, once established, it endures for centuries."
This unseen and tender letter by Nelson Mandela, written from his prison cell on Robben Island will come to auction in London this September. It is addressed to Barbara Lamb and sends condolences on the death of her father Michael Harmel - Mandela's friend and fellow anti-apartheid activist.
The conditions under which Mandela lived when the letter was written were brutal. Although by 1974 he had progressed from a Grade D to a Grade A prisoner, and was able to maintain more contact with the outside world, he was still sleeping every night on a stone floor, breaking stones in the yard every day during the week, and was confined to his cell 23 hours a day at the weekends. Yet, despite the hardships and the sad circumstances that prompted him to write, Mandela still maintains a sense of perspective and humor.

This Art Deco ruby and diamond bracelet by Van Cleef and Arpels, (circa 1940, $300,000 - 500,000) is a dramatic, geometric highlight of next month's Fine Jewelry sale, September 21 in New York.
.
Van Cleef and Arpels opened at Place Vendome in Paris in 1906 and quickly gained notoriety, amongst royalty and high society alike, as leaders in innovation and design. In 1942 they opened their first store in New York; with the outbreak of World War II, it was a welcomed opportunity.
The Maison established themselves in New York by building relationships with the finest craftsman in the city and began manufacturing jewels in the French style for the American esthetic. This dramatic ruby and diamond bracelet is an exceptional example of the jewelry produced by the Van Cleef and Arpels, New York branch, during this period. - Sylvie Raulet, "Van Cleef & Arpels", Paris, 1986 (page 171).

Nothing better than that #FridayFeeling! #StellaShawzin's #bronze #sculpture "Athlete I" part of her Athlete series is included in our South African sale on September 12 2018.
The dramatic posture and exaggerated hands and feet of the monumental figure participate in creating a dynamic and expressive piece that depicts the precise moment the athlete breasts the tape in a final desperate bid for victory. By capturing the fluidity of movement rather than a static pose, the artist evokes the #athlete's ceaseless striving, as well as a sense of the inner yearning from which physical excellence springs.

From Russia with love 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺 Our last #BonhamsPostcard comes from our New York Specialist @alana_ricca who is currently visiting St Petersburg. This incredible sculpture by Italian Arte Povera artist Giuseppe Penone is currently on display in the Great Courtyard of the Winter Palace, which forms part of the complex of buildings of @hermitage_museum. Nature is a recurring theme of Penone’s works, which constantly challenges art to go beyond the museum walls by literally deconstructing & reassembling forms - in this case a tree. The placement of the work in the baroque facades of the palace, emphasizes the artist’s exploration of the relationship between humans & nature.

Another ⭐ lot from our upcoming South African sale is this captivating portrait by #GerardSekoto, one of the pioneers of South African modern art.
Sekoto discovered his facility for drawing whilst he was training as a teacher. After he was awarded 2nd prize in an art competition in 1938, he decided to pursue his passion full time, moving to #Sophiatown in #Johannesburg. Sekoto's work from this period depict daily life in the #township. They record the hardships of black people under the apartheid regime. His paintings are not overtly political; however, his sensitive portraits emphasize the humanity of his sitters, challenging the racist rhetoric of the National Party that likened black people to animals. His township scenes reveal the strong sense of community; neighbours chatting together over dinner, school girls gossiping on their way to class, a mechanic mending a friend's bicycle.

MUROE KICHIBEI 室江吉兵衛 (1841-1903)
A Rare Pair of Large Bronze Hōō Bird and Tortoise Okimono Ornaments
鳳亀彫金象嵌ブロンズ置物一対
Meiji era (1868–1912), circa 1880
$60,000-80,000

This striking, boldly modeled pair of ornaments features two of the ancient Chinese mythical animals associated with the four cardinal directions: the hōō (conventionally translated into English as "phoenix") and the kame, a tortoise-like creature, here with what looks like a dragon's head. These creatures are depicted on some of the earliest masterpieces of Japanese Buddhist art and the hōō has long been a symbol of the emperor, in both China and Japan, making it a particularly apt iconographic choice during a period defined by the re-assertion of imperial power in the person of the Meiji Emperor.

Muroe Kichibei and his colleagues in Takaoka and Kanazawa combined outstanding bronze-casting and bronze-finishing skills, honed by centuries creating Buddhist images, with the crafts of inlay and chiseling that had long been an essential component of sword decoration. .
Offered in the upcoming 'Ancient Skills, New Worlds Twenty Treasures Of Japanese Metalwork' auction, September 12, 2018 in New York.
