Hindman to offer unique blend of Post War art and design in one July auction
How Soon is Now, Post War Art & Design, July 28, 2020.

CHICAGO, IL.- This carefully curated collaborative auction offers works from some of the most important names in art and design from the second half of the 20th century. Sophisticated acquisition opportunities are available for connoisseurs and savvy emerging collectors alike, including examples by Sol LeWitt, Chuck Close, Keith Haring, Christo, Harry Bertoia, Edward Wormley and Paul Evans.

“We are thrilled to present How Soon Is Now as part of our Summer auction schedule. This curated selection of art and design has given us the opportunity to pair artists and designers in the same auction for the first time at Hindman, which has made this a truly cross-departmental effort. We are looking forward to the success of the auction and to creating a new category within the Fine Art and Modern Design departments,” said Joe Stanfield, Director of Fine Art.

Among the highlights are Sol Lewitt’s (American, 1928-2007) 1996 work, Cube without a Cube. Lewitt is considered by most art historians to be one of the founders of conceptualism and this iconic design appears over and over throughout the artist’s work through the years as he experiments with geometry, form, and pattern. It is expected to sell for between $15,000-25,000. The auction also features a quintessential bronze bush sculpture by famed American sculptor Harry Bertoia (1915-1978). Coming from a Florida estate, this 1970s untitled bronze sculpture is also estimated at $15,000-25,000.

Additional fine art included in the sale are Larry Zox’s (American, 1937-2006) expansive 1972 work, Tahoma, which holds a presale estimate of $10,000-15,000 and one of Robert Indiana’s most famous works, Love, from 2000.

For design lovers, pieces by some of the masters of the field will be offered, including works by Wendell Castle (American, 1932-2018), Charles and Ray Eames (American, 1907-1978 | American, 1912-1988), and Paul Evans (American, 1931-1987). The highlight of the category is expected to be a pair of mahogany, mother-of-pearl, and leather chairs from 1989 by Castle, which are estimated at $6,000-8,000.

Additionally, a suite of six lots of Italian lighting by noted designers including Arredoluce, Pirro Cuniberti (Italian, 1923-2016), and Angelo Lelii (Italian, 1915-1979) is likely to draw significant interest. An Arredoluce lacquered and enameled brass chandelier with frosted glass should fetch the highest price of the group, estimated to sell for between $2,000-4,000.

Bidding for the July 28 auction will begin at 10:00 am CT. Bidders will be able to participate via absentee bid, by phone, or live online. Previews for the auction will be available at Hindman’s Chicago facilities by appointment only. For more information about the auction, including the full online catalog, please visit
