CHICAGO, Jan. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Louis Daniel Brodsky Collection of Art Nouveau features furniture and decorative arts from Louis Majorelle, Emile Galle, Loetz and Tiffany Studios. It also includes works of art by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Marie Mucha and Henri Privat-Livemont.
Mr. Brodsky was a prolific poet, scholar and collector. By the age of 73 he had written nearly 12,000 poems. The passion Mr. Brodsky provided to his writing is similar to that of his collecting. He had a love of the Art Nouveau period his entire life and became a meticulous collector.
"He specifically went out of his way to only purchase from the most respected and well known galleries and only purchased the highest quality examples he could find and one of a kind items. He didn't just collect Art Nouveau, he collected the best of the best," said Troika Brodsky, Louis Brodsky's son.
Over 350 lots are available in the auction. Highlights include a Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec color lithograph Divan Japonais ($10,000/20,000), an Emile Galle Wood Marquetry Vitrine ($6,000/8,000) and a Tiffany Studios Favrile Glass and Bronze Pomegranate Lamp ($8,000/12,000).
