AMSTERDAM, N.Y. – On Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012, Carden Family Auction Services will offer a selection of fine art by Lithuanian artist the late Matthew M. Orante IV. The sale will feature more than 300 lots, with Internet live bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com.
Auction lots include Orante artworks from the 1930s through 2003. Among the offerings are oils on canvas, woodcarvings, stone sculptures and a fantastic line of Orante hand-made violins.
“The violins are of the highest quality in both looks and sound,” said auctioneer Kenneth E. Carden. “We will also auction many other instruments hand crafted by Matthew Orante.”
The event will open with several of Orante’s paintings of kings, knights, battle scenes, and castles, along with shields, landscape art and some florals. The grouping will be followed by 59 lots of musical instruments and additional Orante artworks.
The sale will close with several lots of oils displaying symbols and shields reflecting Orante’s Lithuanian homeland, as well as some of his unique hand-carved wood belt buckles, several medieval folk art instruments and weapons. Standing guard over the collection is a complete knight’s suit of armor, which will be auctioned, as well.
The Sunday, Oct. 28 auction will commence at 2 p.m. For additional information on any item in this sale, contact Kenneth E. Carden by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 518-369-1467.
