Top lots sold online on Bidsquare showcase strong art and modern design
George Nakashima Cross-Legged Single Pedestal Desk; Sold for $19,200 on Bidsquare in Rago's Modern Design auction May 19, 2019.

NEW YORK, NY.- Spring auction season is proving to be strong online, as bidders turn to Bidsquare for art and design finds. Modern design, 20th Century and fine art lead sale results in May and early June on Bidsquare. Highlights include a Lino Tagliapietra wall sculpture; a George Nakashima Pedestal Desk; a Sonia Delaunay on paper and more.

A standout piece by glass maestro Lino Tagliapietra was the highlight of Hindman's May Modern Design auction, realizing a final price of $113,400 from a Bidsquare bidder - two times the original estimate.

Hudson Berry, Specialist, Modern Design at Hindman, stated: “It’s no surprise the Lino Tagliapietra surpassed the presale estimate in the way it did. The work truly has a presence both in scale and color. The sculpture also displays some of the finest handwork which varies wildly from piece to piece, creating an almost musical theme and variation feel to the pieces. It’s also worth remembering Tagliapietra’s seminal role as an educator in the history of the American Studio Art Glass Movement as well as his contribution to the legacy of Modernist Italian Art Glass.”

In the same Hindman sale, a Ron Arad Victoria and Albert Chair sold on Bidsquare for $30,240. The chair is a 2001 artist proof 2/5, from an edition of 20 and 5 artist proofs.

An exceptional piece by master furniture designer George Nakashima sold during Rago's Modern Design auction on May 19. This walnut cross-legged single pedestal desk sold for $19,200.

George Nakashima wasn't the only star in Rago's May sales on Bidsquare. This bright work by Le Pho garnered much attention. Offered in the American and European Fine Art auction, this oil on canvas sold for $19,200 on Bidsquare.

June started off strong at Stair, with a colorful gouache and charcoal on heavy paper from 1967 titled Composition by Sonia Delaunay, selling for $28,160 on Bidsquare.
