Auction Watch : George Nakashima at Ritchies

. Monday, September 15, 2008

This Wednesday, an impressive collection of Nakashima works will be offered by the Toronto auction house Ritchies.

All works are from a single private collection, that of Susan Wepman Seidman, Toronto. All works were acquired directly from George Nakashima.

For myself and I'm sure many others, Nakashima's oeuvre has always possessed an aura of mystery and mystique. A few years ago Sotheby's created a beautifully produced video to accompany the sale of one of the most important works ever created by Nakashima, the "Arlyn Table". Every fan of modernism should watch this video.... everyone.

P.S. Thanks Shaun for the tip!
