Stunning collection of Rene Lalique’s art glass at Bonhams auction

Items worth approximately £150,000, most produced in the 1920s, include a large selection of vases, as well as car mascots, statuettes, dishes and bowls, ceiling lights, and perfume bottles. A notable feature of the collection is the proliferation of coloured glass. While much of Lalique is clear or opalescent, the shades of green, blue, and amber of many pieces offered here are harder to find.

Vincent Van Gogh’s Still Life painting at Sotheby’s New York auction

Sotheby’s will offer Vincent van Gogh’s Still Life, Vase with Daisies and Poppies in its Evening Sale of Impressionist & Modern Art in New York on 4 November 2014. Painted at the home of Dr. Paul Gachet just weeks before the end of Van Gogh’s life, the artist uses the richly-colored bouquet of wildflowers to convey his psychological state at the time – a hallmark of the Expressionist icon.
