BLOOMFIELD, N.J. - EntSun -- Nye & Company Auctioneers' two-day, online Chic and Antique Estate Treasures auction, April 21st and 22nd, caters to its international audience, be they interested in contemporary design or more traditional collecting categories. Included is a large selection of modern furniture, rugs and lighting from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island, while simultaneously bringing a strong selection of noted, blue chip artists' names to market.

Start times both days are 10 am Eastern time. Of the roughly 600 lots, included will be Part II of the refined collection of Cornelia and Simon Michael Bessie of Lyme, Conn. Both are well-known and respected in the literary publishing world. Mr. Bessie was one of the co-founders of Atheneum Books (N.Y.) in 1959. A year later, Cornelia joined the firm in an editorial capacity.

Cornelia was introduced to fine art as a child by her parents, Hanns and Kate Schaeffer, owners of the Schaeffer Gallery in New York City. Her passion was Old Master works on paper.  The auction features works by artists such as Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux, Claude Joseph Vernet, Jacques Philippe De Loutherbourg, Jean-Louise-Andre-Theodore Gericault and Dominico Valeriani.

From the Alpert holdings, one will find numerous examples of Leonard Baskin's lithographic portraits of Native American Indian Chiefs. The Jack Beal pastel titled Chincoteague Refuge captures the ambiance of the beach, while Frank Stella's abstract circular wool wall tapestry, titled Sinjerli Variations II, and a similarly abstract burst of color and geometry in Victor Vasarely's aluminum Kroa sculpture, are just two examples of visual excitement up for bid.

International consignors contributed to the auction as well. A French collector consigned a fine ink drawing by Georges Braque of Diana the Huntress and Kees Van Dongen's watercolor of a man, while a New York/Italian family is selling a wonderful collection of prints and multiples. Highlights include a Henry Moore lithograph from the Mother and Child series; a Jasper Johns lithograph of a face (Black State) from casts from untitled and a Mixografia on handmade paper by Helen Frankenthaler.
