On July 27, Hindman
will present Never Too Much, the spirited fourth installment of the firms fine art and design summer auction series inspired by a pop hit.
Never Too Much features so many outstanding examples of post-war production with cross category appeal, commented Zack Wirsum, Vice President, Post War & Contemporary Art. From complicated paintings by William Copley, Alfred Leslie, and Masami Teraoka to more restrained works from George Rickey and Sol LeWitt, there is no shortage of hits and rarities for collectors to tune in to and explore this summer.
A range of iconic international design will be featured, including innovative works by Mario Minale, Jorge Pardo, Pierre Paulin, Archizoom Associati, and Florence Knoll, to name just a few, commented Hudson Berry, Director, Modern Design. We are also excited to see how a fresh-to-the-market collection of American Studio Art glass will perform.
