Auction Description

Canadian Modernist Single Owner Sale by Abington Auction Gallery, Inc.
Fort Lauderdale, FL Canadian Modernist & Brutalist Design Sale Abington Auction Gallery of Fort Lauderdale, FL is pleased to announce the sale of a Canadian modernist collection, spanning c.1940 through c.1990. The sale includes jewelry, pottery, paintings and sculpture exclusively designed and created by Canadian artisans. Abington expects the sale to appeal to all levels of interest, from museum quality acquisition opportunities, one of a kind pieces and rare pieces for the advanced collector, and decorative pieces for the new collector. The collection was amassed over a period of 11 years by a collector who was first inspired by a brutalist design pin by Guy Vidal (Lot #1). The collector started researching Vidal?s work and soon discovered that Canada had its own renaissance in modern design, dating back to the 1930s. While the modernist design movement is more commonly associated with the US and European nations, this collection offers a glimpse into the equally striking and creative period of Canada. (Modern furniture was also produced in Canada during this period, but such makers are not represented in this collection). Every province of Canada contributed its talents, with the population centers Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia taking the lead. By offering his collection for sale, the owner hopes to inform, educate, and strike further interest in the Canadian modernist movement. Read more
