Talk and Slideshow - The Stained Glass Restoration of " Morning "

HudchauwebpostLgWebview

On Saturday, February 23rd at 3 p.m., the Hudson Chautauqua Lecture Series  will present a talk and slide presentation by stained glass artist Doris Cultraro (DC Studios LLC) on her restoration of the late 19th century stained glass window entitled “Morning”.  The magnificent 10’ x 6’ figural panel, was designed by Elihu Vedder, best known for his fifty-five illustrations for Edward FitzGerald's translation of The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. 

Tiffany commissioned Vedder to design glassware, mosaics and statuettes for the company. His works decorate the hallway of the Reading Room of the Washington Library of Congress, and his mural paintings can still be seen there. Numerous works are also on display at the Brooklyn Museum, The Met, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Hudson River Museum, and many other national museums.

Ms. Cultraro has worked for over 35 years in the art of original stained glass design and fabrication, as well as meticulous restoration. The discovery, rescue and finally restoration of this magnificent artwork is a particularly fascinating story, both from a historic and artistic point of view.

Stair Galleries Auction, Rare George Nakashima "Weatherbee" Table

75029-1

We are pleased to offer this rare George Nakashima "Weatherbee" table at auction on February 2, 2013, estimate $5,000-10,000, 14 3/8 x 18 3/4 x 17 5/8 in.

The end table was designed and produced by George Nakashima for his very first show at Odakyu Halc in Shinjuku, Tokyo in 1968.  All the wood for this initial show was sent over from Nakashima's collection in Pennsylvania, and this was one of the rare three-dimensional English Oak Burls personally purchased in London and milled by Nakashima himself.  Purchased by Meredith ("Tex") Weatherby, editor-in-chief of Tokyo's Weatherhill book publishing company, the table was named "Weatherbee" in his honor, but very few were subsequently made.  Mr. Weatherby was a friend of Masayuki Nagare, founder of the "Minguren" group which Nakashima joined in 1964, and lived on the same property as Marion Nakashima's older sister Thelma in Tokyo.  The original drawing remains in the offices of Sakura Seisakusho's Nakashima Memorial Gallery in Takamatsu, Japan, where George Nakashima designed and built the furniture for all of his shows in Japan.
