Enrique Alferez bronze sculpture for Bruneau and Co sale

. December 29, 2017

Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers announce a 379-lot Winter Antiques & Fine Arts Auction on Saturday, January 6th, featuring fine items pulled from several prominent New England homes. The sale will be held online as well as in Bruneau & Co.’s gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, beginning at 11 am Eastern.

Starting the auction will be 100 lots of fine art from several estates, including pieces from a gentleman’s collection out of Dorchester, Mass. Art will be followed by 19th and 20th century decorative arts, to include fine bronzes, elegant and unusual chandeliers and Part 1 of a collection of more than 60 lots of Chinese Export porcelain out of New York.

A strong candidate for top lot of the sale is a fine bronze sculpture of a female nude by Mexican-born realist Enrique Alferez (La./Tex., 1901-1999), titled The Bather (1983), 8 ¼ inches tall (est. $10,000-$15,000). “It will be exciting to see how the sculpture performs, seeing that it’s been off the market for over seven years,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer.
