René CHAR

Lot 328: René CHAR " Le Visage nuptial ".

by Artcurial - Briest - Poulain - F. Tajan

April 16, 2014, 2:30 PM CET

Paris, France

Estimated Price: €10,000 - €15,000

Description: René CHAR " Le Visage nuptial ". Poème autographe signé. 7 pages in-4 à l'encre noire, dont le titre sur autant de feuillets de papier vélin. Une petite feuille d'arbre collée en tête du poème. Indications typographiques. Reliure signée de Georges Leroux. Plein box ivoire ; plats ornés d'un grand décor ovoïde de bois traversé horizontalement d'une bande de liège, avec au centre une nouvelle forme ovale horizontale cette fois, de box vert et liège mosaïqué ; dos lisse, titre doré, tanches dorées. Chemise-étui. Superbe poème autographe dans une magnifique reliure de Georges Leroux. Ce très beau poème fut écrit par René Char en 1938 et lui a été inspiré par son amour pour Greta Knutson. Dans une lettre à Gilbert Lély, il l'a ainsi évoqué : " Je travaille à un long poème, peu émondable, sorte de monologue de mise au point d'amants. " " À présent disparais, mon escorte, debout dans la distance ; La douceur du nombre vient de se détruire. Congé à vous, mes alliés, mes violents, mes indices. Tout vous entraîne, tristesse obséquieuse. J'aime. (...) " Il a paru pour la première fois - avec quatre autres et sous ce titre générique - dans la revue Cahiers d'Art (1940-1944), puis fut repris dans Seuls demeurent (1945).

Lot 41: Verdura, Gold Rope-Link Bracelet Watch, USA, c. 1960

by Auctionata

May 7, 2014, 6:00 PM CET

Berlin, Germany

Estimated Price: €8,000 - €10,000

Description: 14 carat yellow gold USA, around 1960 Fulco di Verdura (1898-1978) - Italian jeweler Dial signed 'VERDURA' Clasp marked with the purity '14K' Movement: mechanical In signed navy leather case Length: 18.5 cm, Width: 1.9 cm Weight: 116.5 grams Very good condition Provenance: from the estate of a New York City philanthropist This 14 carat yellow gold bracelet watch was designed by the Italian jeweler Fulco di Verdura in the 1960s. The elegant bracelet is formed from 14 curbed rope-links, of which one forms the setting for the watch head. Before opening his own salon in New York in 1939, Verdura designed jewelry for both Schiaparelli and Chanel. Verdura client Greta Garbo, the Swedish actress working in Hollywood, wore a polished version of this watch, paired with a matching bracelet on the same wrist, as her signature look. The bracelet watch is in very good condition with usual traces of wear. The clasp is marked with the purity '14K' and the dial is signed 'Verdura'. The length of the bracelet is 18.5 cm and the width is 1.9 cm. The overall weight is 116.5 grams. Verdura (founded 1939) Fulco di Verdura (1898-1978) collaborated with fashion designers Schiaparelli and Chanel working in costume jewelry. In the early 1940s he moved to New York and broke with American design standards to set entirely new trends. He was one of the first designers to make it fashionable for diamonds to be worn both during the day and evening. He is also known as one of the first major designers of the 20th century to set colored stones in yellow gold, at a time when diamonds set in platinum was the safe choice. The result were many exceptional designs, including a series of brooches made of seashells encrusted with precious stones. Other enduring influences were Greek mythology, Christian iconography, medieval themes and most notably Byzantine patterns, which resulted in his famous Maltese cross cuffs. Verdura maintains a retail salon at 745 Fifth Avenue in New York City, where they offer vintage pieces as well as contemporary jewels produced from designs in their vast archive.
