An eclectic collection
22
With its bold mix of genres and periods, juxtaposing Canton enamels with abstract paintings by Schneider
and a Lalanne sheep with an 18th century commode, the collection to be sold at Drouot on 22 October by the Thierry de Maigret auction house is certainly eclectic. The variety and quality of the pieces make this a remarkable collection of some 200 lots, now coming onto the French market with a total estimate of €2 M. The collection mainly consists of enamels from Canton and Beijing, dominated by this Qianlong period perfume-burner in Famille Rose enamel, probably produced in the Beijing imperial workshops (€200,000/250,000). The pair of lions accompanying it dates from the late Yongzheng period or the beginning of the next reign: a completely new model, according to the auction house (€30,000). Then, echoing the radiant colours of the enamels, come compositions by masters of lyrical abstraction, notably Gérard Ernest Schneider, represented by several paintings (including a 1959 work estimated at €60,000/80,000), but also Georges Mathieu ("Entéléchie carolingienne V", an oil on canvas of 1956: €80,000). Connoisseurs are sure to linger over the furniture section of the collection. This includes some fine 18th century pieces rarely found on the market, including a pair of Coromandel lacquer corner cabinets with J. B Gallet's stamp (€20,000/35,000) and a commode embellished with gilt bronze stamped by Jacques Dautriche (€40,000/50,000). Here, eclecticism is decidedly synonymous with quality.
