Auction catalogue. Publisher's description: A granite sphinx by sculptor David Edstrom from the 1915 SF Panama-Pacific Expo, gnarled wood and root lounge chairs from Al Capone's Wisconsin hideout and a 1951 Bianchi motorcycle are just a few of the fascinating works included in this auction catalog from renowned Los Angeles dealers and arbiters of taste Adam Blackman and David Cruz. Lavishly styled for their joint exhibition with Wright, the catalog includes furniture, design, art and objects typical of their selective and inquisitive eye. Composed of a wide-ranging assortment of good design from antiques to their own contemporary productions and accompanied by brief and enlightening narratives by the duo, this collection is united by a distinct aesthetic sensibility celebrating the virtues of drama, humor, ingenuity and sculptural boldness. The inclusion of work by designers Josef Hoffmann, Carlo Bugatti, Andre Sornay, Paolo de Poli and Arturo Pani makes this alluring catalog an enduring historical document.
