Unique Artistic Legacy: Dreweatts to Auction Pablo Bronstein’s Personal Collection in Special Event

Dreweatts is to auction the private collection of contemporary artist Pablo Bronstein (b.1977). The special auction, titled “Pablo Bronstein: Diversions of a Contemporary Mind,” is scheduled for Tuesday, January 9, 2024. Renowned for his distinctive artistic approach, Bronstein’s creations span from exquisite drawings reminiscent of 18th-century French architectural plans to immersive art experiences and performances, all centered around the theme of architecture.

The Argentinian-born artist has gained global recognition for his installations, drawings, and paintings, prominently displayed in prestigious institutions such as The Metropolitan Museum, the Pompidou, the V&A, and the Tate Gallery. The auction will feature items from Bronstein’s personal collection, previously housed in his charming Kent home, including fine and decorative furniture, rare Dutch Delftware, and Old Master Paintings.

Joe Robinson, Head of Sale at Dreweatts, describes Bronstein’s interiors as a living installation—a domestic manifestation of his artistic aesthetic characterized by color, atmosphere, and authenticity. The collection, reflecting a blend of historical and whimsical elements, presents a unique opportunity for buyers to acquire truly distinctive pieces suitable for contemporary as well as traditional spaces.

Highlighted in the collection is a key piece from Bronstein’s Chinoiserie room—a stylish ‘Knoll’ sofa upholstered in velvet, dating from the 20th century, estimated at £600-£800 (lot 22). Another notable item is a highly decorative black lacquer and Chinoiserie decorated ‘cockpen’ armchair in George III style, dating from the late 19th to early 20th century, with an estimate of £300-£500 (lot 44). An elegant English or Dutch ‘scriptor’ writing cabinet in walnut, featuring a fitted interior and frieze detailed drawers, is estimated at £1,500-£2,500 (lot 185).

Among the ceramics, a Dutch Delft transitional style charger and a blue and white transitional style punch or fruit bowl, both dating from circa 1700, carry estimates of £300-£500 (lot 165). Additionally, a pair of attractive Chinese porcelain Imari lamps from the Kangxi period, featuring vibrant floral designs, is estimated at £1,000-£1,500 (lot 52).

The paintings in the collection include a Dutch School work titled “Figure in a Garden Pavilion” from the 18th century, estimated at £3,000-£5,000 (lot 121). A dramatic French School depiction of Neptune from the 18th century is estimated at £2,000-£3,000 (lot 9), while a 16th-century German School portrait titled “Portrait of a Gentleman Contemplating Death” carries an estimate of £2,000-£3,000 (lot 13).

Pablo Bronstein, born in Buenos Aires in 1977, studied at the Slade School of Fine Art and Goldsmiths College in London. He currently lives and works in London, regularly exhibiting his work, including participation in a group exhibition at Tate Britain in 2020.
