Wright’s fall auction agenda includes debut of Modern Glass sale
In addition to the semiannual Important Design auction, which will be conducted this year on Dec. 8, Wright will feature a double bill on Dec. 10 consisting of a Postwar and Contemporary sale, and the debut of a Modern Glass sale
Wright’s carefully vetted Important Design sale includes not only significant modern design but also highlights historical antecedents of modernism and contemporary design.

Additionally, the sale will feature 81 Mylar prints documenting the construction of the World Trade Center North Tower. The prints will be divided into 25 lots.
For the first time, Wright will offer the work of mid-century Mexican Modernists such as Pepe Mendoza, Arturo Pani and Pedro Friedeberg, alongside Scandinavian masterworks and notable French and Italian designs.
Introducing a sale dedicated to glass, Wright’s first Modern Glass sale on Dec. 10 features Masterworks of the 20th and 21st centuries from Murano. Curated by Dan Ripley, this sale will include works from top artists including, Carlo Scarpa, Fulvio Bianconi, Luciano Vistosi and Dino Martens among many others.
Finally, Wright’s autumn auction agenda will conclude with the company’s Postwar and Contemporary Art sale. In this auction Wright will offer works of various media – from works on paper to paintings to photography to sculpture – by important artists of the 20th and 21st centuries.
From the collection of a prominent New York collector, Wright will offer Security and Serenity by Haim Steinbach, and Truism Footstool by Jenny Holzer, along with artworks by several notable artists.
