BRUSSELS — An important private collection of 46 master works in sculpture, ceramics and art head to market at Piasa in Brussels, Belgium on Monday, November 20. The catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

Founder of the art brut movement, Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) focused on a humanistic approach to art and avoided traditional approaches to beauty. Passe cortège (La Procession) is a 1965 oil on canvas that has been exhibited numerous times and has a fully documented ownership chain to the present collection. It is one of the sale’s top estimated lots, at €1 million-€1.5 million ($1 million-$1.5 million).

Father of European lyrical abstraction, Georges Mathieu (1921-2012) built a wealthy clientele for his art by working for United States Lines, a passenger ship company, in his home town of Le Havre, France. In assisting and greeting arriving elite passengers, he would ultimately meet Salvador Dali, among many others. La Bataille des Éperons d’or (The Battle of the Golden Spurs) is a 1957 work featuring gold leaf. The work was widely exhibited beginning in 1959 and has had only three owners to date. The oil on canvas is estimated at €1.2 million-€1.8 million ($1.2 million-$1.9 million).

The sale includes two bronze sculptures by Rembrandt Bugatti (1884-1916), the talented but tragically doomed Italian artist who would take his life at age 31 as a result of depression brought on by his World War I experiences. Like his famous brother Ettore, founder of Bugatti motor cars, Rembrandt had a unique gift, manifested in his sculptures turned to bronzes. Lionne dévorant from around 1904 is estimated at €200,000-€300,000 ($212,900-$319,400), and the 1906 bronze Femme nue assise se coiffant is estimated at €100,000-€150,000 ($106,400-$159,700).

A selection of 17 Picasso works, primarily ceramics, are also included from the private collection. Vase aztèque aux quatre visages from 1957 is the top-estimated Picasso lot at €80,000-€100,000 ($85,100-$106,400).
