NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s June Design season culminates with WYETH: The Art of Timeless Design on 6 June 2017 in New York. In response to this sale's resounding success in June 2016, Sotheby’s is collaborating with WYETH once again to curate another design collection that speaks to the unique aesthetic vision of WYETH's Sagaponack gallery located in the East End of Long Island. The full contents of the sale will be on public exhibition in Sotheby’s New York galleries beginning 2 June, alongside Sotheby's auctions of Important Design and The Estate of Carol Ferranti: Masterworks by Tiffany Studios.

Hand built by WYETH’s owners in 2008, the modernist post and beam structure set within 3 acres of verdant woodland represents the ultimate vision of WYETH’s owners where the tenets of good design, architecture and nature converge. The auction and catalogue are infused throughout with the same sense of light, space and indoor/outdoor informality of a summer season in the Hamptons. This auction represents a unique opportunity for collectors to discover a new and invigorating side of WYETH’s signature aesthetic.

WYETH: The Art of Timeless Design will offer approximately 200 pieces of furniture, lighting and design objects from across the 20th century, with each item hand selected for its individual design merit, quality of craftsmanship and integrity by one of the greatest connoisseurs and innovators in the field today, WYETH founder, John Birch.

The sale showcases chic and sophisticated works of Scandinavian, American mid-century, and Italian design that are unified by integrity of materials, impeccable craftsmanship and beauty of form. Iconic works are presented by masters such as Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, Poul Kjaerholm, Paavo Tynell, Ejner Larsen and Aksel Bender Madsen, Jens Quistgaard, Carl Auböck, Edward Wormley, George Nakashima, and Gino Sarfatti. With estimates starting at $800, there is a diverse range of objects for collectors at every level.
