ORANGERIE Selected Objects
The auction format “ORANGERIE Selected Objects,” much like an actual Orangery, puts the best from across the world on display. It places no boundaries on the epochs, genres, or materials of the works of art offered. The auratic objects are conversation-starters, and their juxtaposition in the context of the exhibition, the catalogue, and the auction contributes to the formation of tastes. The objects offered span the range from antiquities of remarkable provenance to autographs from the pens of luminaries. The magazine-like catalogue prepared for the Orangerie presents these exceptional artworks to great effect with comprehensive art-historical context, thus encouraging collectors to expand their horizons and move into new fields.
