THE FOLLOWING TWO LOTS ARE PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF MRS. NELSON A. ROCKEFELLER
Derek E. Ostergard, George Nakashima: Full Circle, New York, 1989, p. 157
Mira Nakashima, Nature, Form and Spirit: The Life and Legacy of George Nakashima, New York, 2003, p. 176
Begun in 1974, the Japanese House commissioned by Governor and Mrs. Nelson Rockefeller in Pocantico Hills is arguably the largest and most impressive private commission undertaken by George Nakashima. The home, designed by Junzo Yoshimura, contains a superb interior almost completely comprised of Nakashima designed furniture. Called Greenrock by Nakashima, this interior included over 200 pieces, many unique designs as well as some forms that have since assumed this name. The current lot is not only part of this landmark commission, but also was included in Full Circle, which was the first solo exhibition devoted to the work of George Nakashima.
