Hindman is pleased to announce the upcoming auction of fine art, photographs, books and manuscripts, Asian, American and European furniture and decorative arts and silver from prominent estates and collectors, including the Estate of Charles S. Ackerman. The auction, featuring almost 600 lots, will take place on Thursday, September 19 at 10AM (ET) at the Hindman galleries located at 668 Miami Circle NE, Atlanta. The public exhibition will be held Friday, September 13 through Wednesday, September 18 from 12pm-5pm daily.

In addition to reaffirming its visible presence in the vital Atlanta arts community, Hindman is particularly pleased to have been chosen to offer property from the Estate of Charles S. Ackerman at auction. Charles S. Ackerman, the founder and chairman of the storied Atlanta commercial real estate firm, Ackerman & Co, has long been recognized as one of the visionaries of Buckhead’s modern skyline. In addition, he founded Ackerman Security, and was involved with numerous civic and cultural institutions.

Highlights from the diverse collection include a painting by Francois Brunery (Italian/French, 1849-1926) entitled The Latest Gossip (estimate $8,000-12,000), an etching and aquatint by Jasper Johns (American, b. 1930) titled 0-9, 1975 (estimate $7,000-9,000), a first edition of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind, (estimate $1,500-2,000), and a selection of Tibetan Thangkas dating from the 18th through the 20th centuries (estimates $500 to $2,000).

From the Estate of Deanna Vondrak will be several American Renaissance and Aesthetic pieces of furniture, attributed to such makers as Herter Brothers, George Schastey & Co. and Pottier & Stymus. Vondrak was a well-known authority on American 19th century furniture and decorative arts, and for many decades placed exemplary pieces in well-known museum and private collections.

The auction continues with impressive offerings of European furniture and decorative arts from collections, estates and various owners, highlighted by a fine Louis XV gilt-bronze-mounted kingwood and tulipwood salon table ($15,000-20,000), a William IV Irish silver tea and coffee service (estimate $2,500-3,500) and a selection of Chelsea and Derby18th century porcelain figures from a Southern Collection.
