Automata: Life and Other Illusions
Our August sale features the automaton collection of Michael Kam. Over 150 vintage and modern mechanical marvels will go on the block, including rare and unusual examples by Vichy, Lambert, Phalbois, and their contemporaries. Fine and unique examples by modern makers of these intricate living sculptures will also be represented. The automatons will be complemented by a selection of kinetic art, puppets, and associated objects.
Catalogs ship approximately three weeks before the auction. Previews will be held in our gallery August 22—23, 10—5pm.
