MASTERWORKS : A Contemporary Glass Auction Thursday, April 25, 2013


MASTERWORKS : A Contemporary Glass Auction An auction of contemporary glass works from the 1970s and beyond. Thursday April 25th, 2013 Preview 6:30-8:00 pm — Auction 8:00-9:30 pm Welcome to Habatat Galleries 11th International Masterworks Auction. This year we offer sculpture from several notable collections including Jean Claude Chapelotte who owned the Chapelotte Gallery from 1980 – 2012. During that period he acquired some very special and very rare works for his private collection. Several of these works are represented in this auction. Tom Kully, a major Chicago collector, passed away in 2011. His interest in art ranged from a significant Asian collection to contemporary paintings and works in glass. The sculptures that are available in this auction are a testimony to his extraordinary eye and understanding of how glass relates to the fine arts. Another early collector, whose love of art led him and his wife to develop a substantial collection, was Sol Iwrey (1926 – 1993) and his wife Sylvia. This auction features several early works from their collection.
