Morton Bartlett
Waving Girl (2010)
Morton Bartlett (1909 - 1992)
With a sublime combination of genius, observation, eccentricity and passion, Morton Bartlett created a fantasy family of model children, 3 boys and 12 girls. Meticulously sculpted, perfectly dressed and posed, they were then photographed in a series of staged scenarios, at once quotidian and dramatic, with images including girls curled up reading, a boy at the beach or a teenager practicing ballet.
 
Greco-Buddhist head of a Bodhishattva
2nd to 3rd Century AD
Head of a Bodhisattva in finely carved dark gray schist for this sculpture in ronde bosse. Typical iconography of the art of Gandhâra at that time, presenting a handsome even face, slightly bulging eyes, delicately drawn lips showing the whisper of a smile and topped by a wavy mustache and an aquiline nose in the Greek-style that inspired it. The Urna is situated above the arch of the eyebrows, symbolizing omniscience; a forceful and meditative gaze emerges from the heavy, half-closed eyelids.
 
Pair of Phoenician Earrings Roman period with garnet (30 - 337 AD)
Pair of 24-karat earrings in the form of a bunch of grapes made up of 5 granulated spheres, the last one separated by a horizontal ring, and surmounted by a crescent ornamented with a very beautiful garnet cabochon.
Historical Origins: Roman Phoenicia (30 - 337 AD) The spherical ornamentation of these earrings and their granulation recalls a pomegranate. Attribute of the Roman goddesses of love (Venus) and marriage (Juno), this fruit is the symbol of fertility and prosperity, and also rebirth.
 
Picasso - plate with Four Interlaced Profiles (1949)
Round plate representing four interlaced profiles. Original work from 1949 of which a limited edition of 25 was produced. The figures' contour is in relief highlighted by a midnight blue line and black vegetal decoration, all on a very light ivory-white background.

On the back: the contour of a stylized figure in the same tones of blue and black and the inscriptions: Empreinte Originale De Picasso and “Madoura plein feu”.
