Important photography from Jan Saudek, Edward Sheriff Curtis, and Ansel Adams highlight Clars sale
Clars will be selling three of Edward Sheriff Curtis’ (American, 1868-1952) Orotone prints including one of his more famous pieces “The Vanishing Race” (1904) that is estimated at $4,000 - $6,000.

OAKLAND, CA.- Clars Auction Gallery’s January 14 and 15, 2017 sale will be highlighted by important and rare photography offerings. This two-day event will also feature a fine selection of Asian Art and Antiques, Jewelry and Timepieces, Decorative Arts and Furnishings as well as Fine Art.

Clars Auction Gallery has assembled an extensive and unique compilation of photography for their January 15th 2017 sale of fine art. From urban landscapes by George Tice (American, b.1938) to Rock ‘N’ Roll candid portraits by Jim Marshall (American, 1936-2010), Clars’ sale will have genres for all photography enthusiasts, collectors, and dealers. The major highlight in this sale will be thirty-seven exquisite hand-colored gelatin silver prints by renowned photographer Jan Saudek (Czech, b. 1935) from the Seattle Art Museum (Seattle, WA). This intriguing collection includes some of Saudek’s most famous images including “Burden #348” featured as the cover of Adolf Zika’s film “Jan Saudek: Bound by Passion,” (2008) and “Knife” included as the album cover for Daniel Lanois’ “For the Beauty of Wynona” (1993). The sale’s thirty-seven Saudek photographs demonstrate the artist’s characteristic application of sexuality, religious symbolism, and social aberrancy to formulate whimsical dreamlike worlds.

Other rare photographs to be offered are those by Edward Sheriff Curtis (American, 1868-1952), known for his depictions of the vanishing Native American life in the West. Clars will be selling three of Curtis’ Orotone prints including one of his more famous pieces “The Vanishing Race” (1904) estimated at $4,000 - $6,000. This print demonstrates Curtis’s ability to not only document the typical lifestyle of the Native American but also capture the emotion and mood of these figures and their existence in the American West. Curtis’s photographs of Native Americans are timeless pieces as they capture an integral part of transitional life of the Native American through the new Western lens.

Four photographs by Ansel Adams (American, 1902-1984) will also be available in this month’s sale at Clars. Known for his crisp renderings of landscapes, Adams often used a large-format camera to bring as much detail and clarity to his photographs. "El Capitan, Winter, Yosemite National Park," 1948, which will be included in the sale, exhibits Adams’ ability to capture environmental reality through precision and depth. The photo is also a great example of Adams’ desire to display, through his photographs, the American National Parks prior to extreme tourism and loss of natural habitat.

Among the other American fine art highlights will be an oil on canvas by Edward Cucuel (American, 1879-1954). Titled “Nude on a Bed,” this work will be offered for $10,000 - $15,000. From Julien Alden Weir (American, 1865-1919) will be “Still Life with Flowers,” an oil on panel estimated at $8,000 - $12,000 and an oil on board by Edgar Payne (American, 1881-1947) titled “French Tuna Boats,” that will be offered for $6,000 - $9,000. And coming from America’s most loved illustrator, Charles M. Schulz, (American, 1911-2000) will be his black crayon on paper drawing titled “Linus with Electric Blanket,” circa 1962 that is estimated to achieve $2,000 - $4,000. (Estate of Henry Fagliano, San Francisco, CA).

Highlighting the European fine art offerings will be “Gardiennes de Vaches pres de l’Etang,” a charcoal and pencil with watercolor embellishments on paper by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (French, 1796-1875). This work will be offered for $8,000 - $12,000. For the same estimate, will be painting by Georgiy Alexandrovich Lapchine (Russian, 1885-1950) titled “Harbor Scene with Fishing Boats.”

A 17th century Flemish verdue tapestry depicting a bucolic country landscape will be the highlight of this category’s offerings. Coming from a prominent Los Angeles (CA) estate, this tapestry will be offered for $8,000 - $12,000.

Also of note to be offered will be a pair of monumental Sevres style porcelain and bronze mounted urns estimated at $4,000 - $6,000 and a beautiful 19th century Georgian William Kent style carved giltwood console that will be offered for $3,500 - $5,500.

For those passionate about accessorizing perfectly, this month’s sale will feature an exceptionally large collection of colored stone brooches and bangles. For those who want to make a bold yet elegant statement, there is a diamond, emerald and 18k gold Tiger bracelet that will be offered for $3,000 - $5,000 or a round brilliant-cut diamond ring, centered by a 1.80 cts diamond, set in 14k yellow gold that will be offered at the same estimate.

The Asian offerings will be highlighted by an impressive selection of Himalayan decorative items. Topping this selection is a Ladakh headdress (perak) that is set with turquoise pebbles and was worn by high-ranking females. (Estimate: $6,000 - $9,000). The Himalayan items will also include a Thankga depicting the Medicine Buddha and a Tibetan oracle crown set with a five-skull form diadem.

The Chinese offerings will be highlighted by a pair of calligraphy, the five-character couplet, attributed to Wu Zhuhui (Chinese) that will be offered for $3,000 - $5,000 and a beautiful brocade textile, fragment from a blue ground dragon robe, is estimated at $2,000 - $4,000.

Clars’ Fine Art, Decorative Art, Furniture, Jewelry/Timepieces and Asian Art Auction will be held on Saturday and Sunday, January 14 and 15, 2017. The sales will begin promptly at 9:30am on Saturday and Sunday.
