Auction Details: Sotheby’s June Design season culminates with WYETH: The Art of Timeless Design. In response to this sale's resounding success in June 2016, Sotheby’s is collaborating with WYETH once again to curate another postwar design collection that speaks to the unique aesthetic vision of WYETH's Sagaponack gallery located in the East End of Long Island. Chic and sophisticated works of Scandinavian, American mid-century, and Italian design are unified by integrity of materials, impeccable craftsmanship and beauty of form. Iconic works are presented by masters including Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl, Poul Kjaerholm, Jens Quistgaard, Paavo Tynell, Carl Auböck, Gino Sarfatti, Edward Wormley, and George Nakashima. With estimates starting at $800, this auction represents a unique opportunity for collectors to discover a new side of WYETH’s signature aesthetic.
