Teaching Chinese Textiles – What is the Forbidden Stitch?

New Blog Post Alert!

The forbidden stitch, to the arts layperson, might sound a little like H.P. Lovecraft mixed with a crafts book. What eldritch knot following non-euclidean geometry (and crafted from hand-spun hypoallergenic alpaca yarn) could such a thing be?

In Qing-dynasty (1644-1912) China, the imperial family and high-ranking officials wore elaborate dragon-patterned robes made of precious silk and gold. Why was this one refashioned as a wall hanging? It might have been inherited by a family member who wasn’t legally entitled to wear it, or made into a hanging after the Qing dynasty’s demise in 1912, when court robes became obsolete. Or perhaps it simply became too threadbare to wear. Dragons were auspicious creatures in Chinese legend, so a hanging like this would have been appropriate for display during any festive occasion #FabricFriday

Oakridge Auction Gallery has been entrusted to bring an archive of paintings by Francis Focer Brown (American, 1891-1971) and Beulah H. Brown (American, 1892-1987), a.k.a. Beulah Elizabeth Hazelrigg Brown, to market.

Little Tavern – A Forgotten Icon

Happy Monday!

Check out our latest article and take a ride down memory lane:

“Oakridge Auction Gallery has several items from Little Tavern restaurants in our November Antiques, Collectibles, Advertising, Militaria, Toys & Dolls auction. These Little Tavern pieces were initially purchased from the company warehouse in Silver Spring, Maryland after the 1991 closing. They have been retained by the buyer since then and this is the first time they have been offered for sale.” By: Keith Spurgeon

If you, like me, grew up in the Washington DC area in the 1960s and 70s you probably remember the ubiquitous Little Tavern Burger joints.

Drawn to the Past: Becoming Andre Gisson

The first in a series of original articles by Oakridge Auction Gallery:

"His color pallet is restrained and the use of light is pure and clear. This gives his still life a sense of the otherworldly, providing a soothing and bright view for the audience, rather than the sometimes riotous and hyperpigmented experience of a 19th century Impressionist painting." - Lizzie Doerr

The still life pictured featured is Lot #6 of our upcoming auction: Fall Fine Art, Antiques & Jewelry Auction on October 27th, 2018.

*This piece has never been offered publicly*

Carl Paul Jennewein (American, 1890-1978), is best known and has garnered much praise for his 1933 polychrome figures in the pediment of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Our signature auction piece, circa 1920, titled ‘Young Mercury’ or ‘Infant Mercury’, depicts a running child, mounted to a column base of dark green, mottled stone.

“The British street artist Banksy pulled off one of his most spectacular pranks on Friday night, when one of his trademark paintings appeared to self-destruct at Sotheby’s in London after selling for $1.4 million at auction.”

Moments after the gavel sounded on the $1.4 million sale of the Banksy artwork, an alarm sounded and it slipped through a shredder hidden in the frame, cutting it to pieces.
