Bloomfield, NJ, USA, June 2, 2023 -- Nye & Company Auctioneers will hold a two-day sales extravaganza on Wednesday and Thursday, June 14th and 15th, featuring an extensive selection of silver and jewelry, as well as a broad selection of fine art and prints, starting at 10 am Eastern Time both days. The Chic and Antique Estate Treasures auction features around 800 lots and is online-only.

The sale is a curated mix of fine and decorative arts, spanning from the 16th century to present day. It features a variety of collectible categories that will be sure to delight even the most seasoned and scrupulous collector, dealer and institution alike. Real time Internet bidding will be provided across several platforms, as well as the Nye & Co. website: www.nyeandcompany.com.

Of particular importance is a superb selection of 19th century period copies of recognizable Abraham Lincoln albumen photographs. These include copies of Mathew Brady photographs of Lincoln, descended in the family of the 19th century photographer Davis Garber (N.Y.). These striking images capture the strength and fortitude of one of the nation?s most beloved presidents.

There are also images of the fabled and iconic General Ulysses S. Grant?s funeral; a striking image of Yosemite by Isaiah West Taber; and late 19th century images of Egypt attributed to Davis Garber. Another New York/New Jersey metropolitan area photographer named Walter M. Westervelt is also represented in the auction with his early 20th century still life photography.

Continuing with art that hangs on the wall, there is a terrific selection of modern and contemporary works. Highlights include two Keith Haring chalk subway drawings featuring a Mother and Child and See no Evil ? perfect representations of the graffiti art movement that would later lead to Haring?s rise as one of the most important Pop Art artists in New York City.

There is also an exceptional self-portrait lithograph by Jim Dine, who became close with Claes Oldenburg and Marcus Ratliff and the Judson Gallery and Church in Greenwich Village; plus colored offset lithographs by Banksy: Di-Faced Tenners and Rude Snowman. These works offer buyers an opportunity to acquire pieces from the popular, enigmatic British graffiti street artist.

As for more traditional art, there is an exceptional Barbizon style landscape with stream by the English/New York artist Ernest Parton (1845-1933). With impeccable provenance from the highly regarded James Graham & Sons gallery, this picturesque work captures the striking natural beauty that Mother Earth has to offer. There is also a sporting picture by William E. Skilling (1862-1964), depicting gentlemen on horseback with their dogs in front of a village.

The sale also includes a work by the Indian artist Jamini Roy (1887-1972). Roy was honored by the Indian government in 1954 with the prestigious Padma Bhushan award. His artwork can be found in many private and public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The painting in the auction features an image of a beautiful woman in a lovely pink sari.
