New York, NY, February 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- The auction features a large group of Polish and European artwork from the Estate of Serafin Dobczynski. After emigrating to the United States in the late 1940s, Mr. Dobcynski started the first shipping company that moved goods between the US and Poland. On one of his many trips to his native country, he befriended naive artist Nikifor Krynicki who was homeless and sold his work on the street. For years, Mr. Dobczynski brought him supplies and purchased much of his work. Now recognized as a cultural icon in Poland, many of Nikifor’s pieces hang in a museum devoted solely to his body of work.
Dobczynski was an avid art collector who founded Pol-Art Gallery in New York City. On auction are works from his private collection including pieces by Charyton, Falat, Iwanowski, Kramsztyk, Menkes, Nikifor, Rubczak and Szewczenko.
Other auction highlights include English, American and French furniture and decorative arts, silver including Tiffany, Caldwell and Kirk, Ceramics including Rookwood, Staffordshire, Royal Vienna and Royal Doulton, Marklin Train Set and Other Collectibles, Asian art, Rugs and many interesting group lots.
