Ascension of Christ Russia (Yaroslavl), 17th century Egg tempera with gold leaf on a wooden panel surfaced with gesso and linen 72 x 48.5 cm This monumental icon shows an unusual division of planes. In the upper register, Christ is depicted in a green mandorla that is carried to heaven by two angels. The footprints in the earth beneath the mandorla show how Christ was still standing on the earth shortly before. The disciples left beneath gaze and point upwards in wonder. Noticeably, the disciples are standing before the openings of a cave, a reminder of Christ's resurrection from the grave. Directly below Christ, the Mother of God is depicted, flanked by radiant white angels. She bows her head slightly and raises her hands in prayer and reception - a pose reminiscent of the Annunciation. Just as Mary received her divine child at that time, she now leaves him to return to his heavenly father.

William Hendrik Gispen (Amsterdam 1890-1981 The Hague) Saturnuslamp, Giso n° 2055, 1931 Executed by N.V. Gispen, Culemborg The Netherlands, 1945-1957 Matte brass nickel-plated pendant with an opal glass sphere and two frosted glass discs with bright edges H 105 x Ø 60 cm William Hendrik Gispen was a Dutch designer and manufacturer of modernist furniture and lighting. He was an important representative of the functionalist movement, promoting and selling modern interior designs at the beginning of the 20th century through his salesrooms in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Brussels, Paris, London and Nottingham. This design was introduced in his lighting-catalogue 29 as n° 66 in 1931. It changed to no. 2055 in 1936, and later on the pendant was called ‘Saturnuslamp’ which means ‘Saturn-lamp’. The possibility to move around the world at high speed in cars, planes, trains but also rockets and space traveling were an inspiration for designers creating futuristic designs at the beginning of the 20th century. W.H. Gispen designed a lamp with two glass disks around an opal glass sphere that looks like the planet Saturn. Lighting by W.H. Gispen is part of the permanent collections of The Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Rotterdam, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, V&A Museum London, The MOMA in New York and the MFAH in Houston USA.

Madonna and Child Malines, late Gothic, first quarter of the 16th century Walnut with original polychrome and gilding, marked with the ‘M’ mark in the front and Malines three-bar Guild mark on the reverse H 32.4 cm (incl. base) Recorded at KIK-IRPA, Brussels, object n° 11016890 Certificate of expertise by Mrs J.

Zeberg Antiques NV, Antwerp, TEFAF Maastricht 1996, acquired by private collection, Antwerp Literature: Exhibition catalogue 1996 TEFAF Maastricht. Den Bosch: The European Fine Art Foundation, p. 293, with ill.; F. Cayron & D. Steyaert, Made in Malines. Les statuettes malinoises ou poupées de Malines de 1500-1540. Étude matérielle et typologique, 2019; Brussels: KIK-IRPA, p. 150, ill. 3.55 Exhibition: TEFAF Maastricht, March 1996 This statuette of the Madonna and Child is a prime example of the Malines sculpture production of the early sixteenth century. The polychromy is attributed to the anonymous Maître aux fleurettes isolées (ca. 1501–ca. 1550). Cayron and Steyaert have identified three other sculptures with applied polychrome and gilding by this Malines master (2019, p. 150)

It will feature something exceptional in the history of art: the first Slip Print made in 1961 by Antonio Recalcati (1938-2022). After beginning to make prints of his own body in oil paint in 1960, the following year Antonio Recalcati placed traces of his own clothes (shirt, pants, socks, pants, T-shirt, etc.) at the centre of his paintings. At the same time, Yves Klein was producing his beautiful Anthropometries, done in public and using the bodies of naked women as paintbrushes. On the other side of the Atlantic, Pop Art artists were also incorporating everyday objects into their paintings. But the references and atmosphere of Recalcati's paintings are radically different. The fruit of a hand-to-hand encounter between the painter and his canvas, in the solitude of the studio, these works have a dramatic tension that is offset by a singular luminosity and a great deal of vitality. In 2022, Galerie Kaléidoscope and Antonio Recalcati decided to embark on an ambitious process of rediscovery in France and abroad. Since the artist's death a year ago, she has represented the Estate, and will shortly be contributing to the launch of a catalogue raisonné of 60 years of painting. Antonio Recalcati was at the forefront of the great figurative renewal of the second half of the twentieth century, while constantly engaging in dialogue with his elders: from Etruscan painting to Picasso, via of course the masters of the Italian Renaissance.

Hairs related this work to work 'n° 119' from Daniel Seghers' inventory. This work was described in the diary of Philippe Chifflet (from the entourage of Cardinal Infante Ferdinand of Spain). Chifflet noted that Ferdinand visited Seghers in his studio where this work was presented to him (See: G. Wilmers, Corneli Schut (1597-1655): a Flemish Painter of the High Baroque, Belgium 1996, pp. 172-73). This is a great collaboration between two specialists in their genre: Schut's free 'Rubenesque' figuration is broken by Segher's hyperrealism and bright use of colour. Although the two painters retain their individuality and their own style, they reinforced each other in this work and built a composition together. (Schut and Seghers worked together several times during this period, resulting in several cartouches with putti).
