Romanian artist Sandú Darié Laver, also known as Sandu Darie, received formal training in law but eventually becoming a painter. He was closely associated with the Concrete Art movement. Darie joined MADI, the Latin-American geometric abstract art group, in 1946 and later joined Los Diez Pintores Concretos. A 20th-century oil painting by Sandu Darie is a key highlight of the upcoming Akiba Antiques auction. The painting portrays geometric shapes in several colors. It bears Darie’s signature and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

An antique Chinese pendant necklace made of 22-karat yellow gold and carved jadeite leads the listings as well. The 19th-century pendant has character markings below. China’s connection to jade traces back to the Neolithic period. Considered to be a symbol of purity, the stone has been valued for its aesthetics and durability for generations. The sale also features a metal sculpture by Sergio Bustamante. It depicts a sun head with a boy’s body in an acrobatic position. The lot also includes a book titled The Mexico of Sergio Bustamante produced by Tyler Smith and Clint Clemens. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit LiveAuctioneers.
