Grigory Gluckmann Painting, Versace Mansion Chairs at Akiba Antiques

Published February 1st, 2022 by Akiba Galleries

In advance of Valentine’s Day this February, Akiba Antiques will offer an assortment of fine art, collectibles, porcelain, and furniture for the discerning collector. An oil painting by Russian-born artist Grigory Gluckmann is a key lot. Gluckmann completed his art training shortly before the Russian Revolution began in 1917. After fleeing the country, he studied in Germany, Paris, and Florence. Teachers in each location influenced his painterly style. Available in Akiba Antiques’ sale is a 1926 work that departs from Grigory Gluckmann’s typical subjects of dancers and nudes. The signed painting shows a Parisian street scene, complete with multi-colored awnings, lingering pedestrians, and signs for a coiffeur. Other available works of fine art include a signed drawing by Jean Dubuffet, two framed paintings by Barend Graat, and several sculptures by Ernest Trova.

Beyond fine art, this auction includes notable pieces of furniture from around the world. Among these is an antique Chinese hardwood panel screen that dates back to the late 18th or early 19th century. One side of the screen depicts vases, fruits, and other grouped objects. The reverse shows swirling clouds, dragons, and symbols. A six-piece set of Venetian Renaissance-style upholstered chairs from the Versace Mansion of Miami Beach is another lot of interest.
