My father, Andres Laszlo Senior put together two collections of "popular Spanish art", and he exhibited them for the last time in 1969 (I think). As he died 15 years later, I (Andres Laszlo Junior) inherited them, and apart from making sure that they do not fall to pieces (deteriorate more than necessary), I have done nothing with them. Whereas the other collection (wooden sculptures) has been authenticated by the best, the glass paintings are more a case of "what you see is what you get" but as these were all collected in the 1940s-1950s (maybe also 1960s) there is no reason to suspect foul play. As I unpacked them, I have broken a few, some have a bit of paint missing, and some might not have an original/very old frame. However, what I can say with certainty is that these pictures are well-chosen, and sort of "the best of the best" of what my father came across (because the rest he sold). There is a catalog but to what extent these paintings occur in these, I cannot tell.

I started collecting Swedish art glass as a way to become well-enough off to venture out on an all-the-things-a-ma-should-have-done-project, but half way though the project, I was captured by the beauty of Swedish Crystal, and I even wrote a book about it (Svenskt Konstglas). It was fun when I tried to challenge Birgitta, the biggest actor on the market, by obsessively pursuing my desire to put together an excellent Orrefors collection during the 1980s. Of course, I failed – she was a billionaire, and I was a pauper, at least relatively speaking – but I still managed to put together a seriously good collection. However, I felt sad the day that I realized that I would probably never be able to afford to complete my collection, donate it to Moderna Museet, and maybe get an “Andres Laszlo, Jr., Collection room” named after me; something I believe my father would have approved of and appreciated (and even been a wee bit jealous of). Though I love Swedish art glass, especially Orrefors 1920 - 1940, I have started to sell off my collection.

 

 

Unique Fishgraal


“The Paper Weight Fish Graal” is a bit of a conundrum, and it is so for two reasons. [1] Fishgraals were normally made as spherical or drop-shaped vases, occasionally as ashtrays, and, very rarely, as dishes; this is a unique or at least extremely rare shape. [2] In 1944, when this Graal allegedly was made, 1499 other thick Graals had been made before it, and the technique had “improved” so it was then quite easy to produce much clearer/sharper contours than this. This Graal looks as if it had been made among the first hundred or so. Why? Look at these fish. The contour is so vague, lacking all the sharpness that now (in 1944) was so easily achieved. Is it because the material was thicker than normal? Is it because they had used an old "ämne"/"cartridge"? or was it The result of an attempt to imitate “the technique of yesteryearʼs”? More

Kraka Collection
 
Four Kraka pieces - "a maybe the best Kraka though not unique," "a maybe the best standard Kraka", "a maybe unique" and "an interesting early experiment" - that together could well make up the most complete "small" Kraka collection there is. More

Super Fish Graal

This is probably the most attractive Fishgraal ever made. The shape, the size, the mass, and the wonderful way that the fish really swim, makes this vase quite stand out not only from its relatives but even from its contemporaries. The Fishgraal was eventually to freeze into the shapes of “drop” and “ball”, but this was made "long before that"; in the late 1930s each Thick Graal was a unique piece of art, and much as 1939 was "the year of the Ariel," 1937 was "the year of the thick Graal." Thick Graals from this time should thus be seen as exactly that - Thick Graals - and not Fishgraals with all its negative connotations to technical over perfection & mass-production. This piece shows fish that really do swim.  More

Stunning Ravenna

This huge "double" Ravenna speaks for itself, and you are probably tired of listening to somebody, one who is not even an art major, describing his stuff (sorry, artefacts). I have been extremely lucky to be able to acquire these four great Ravennas, and to try to go "one better" and show even more exuberance about this piece would simply be beyond my vocabulary and show me off as an even greater admirer of Swedish art glass than I would like to be seen as. When they came to object numbers like 999, etc. Orrefors often took an old "ämne"/"cartridge" and this could well be an example of this practice. More

Early Orange Hald Graal

Hald has designed so many Fishgraals, that when seeing a Graal-piece signed “Hald” and with seaweed “in it”, one more or less automatically assumes “a Fishgraal.” However, this piece is not a Fishgraal. It is a Thick Graal, and though it might well be seen as a predecessor to the Fishgraal... Letʼs take a closer look; [1] Itʼs from the first year of thick Graal making [1937], and technically excellent. [2] The glass is frosted [it has been dipped in acid] which is very unusual. [3] Graal colours varied a lot, true, but orange and lilac/blue... Unheard of! [4] The shape of the vase is, if not unique, yet rather unusual. [5] Hald wasnʼt much given to put air in his Graals; this is a very rare exception, and it could well have been signed "Ariel". More

Modernist Ravenna

“The Modernist Ravenna” from 1953 represents a deviation from traditional Ravenna pattern and form. In a pattern, it is modernistic rather than of the time/traditional, and the opaque layer of white glass is, if not unique, very rare. In shape itʼs slicker and smoother and more “internationally modernistic” than what was common at the time, especially in Sweden; it very much depart from the traditional Swedish "form language" of the early 50s, and it thus so in very interesting ways. This boat-shape was common among the earliest Ravennas, and itʼs maybe in these early boat-shapes - semi-figurative motif, with a clear base and a matching rim - that Ravennas reaches itʼs highest level. The opaque outer layer is very unusual, note the rim of clear glass that appears orange as it reflects the colour of the background. When I - in my books - talk about the best Ravennas combining technique and artistry to read world class, this is the sort of object Iʼm thinking of.  More

Öhrström Picasso Graal

This Thick Graal from 1948, if "it" really is from 1948, represents one of the few times somebody managed to sneak a design past Edward Hald and into the “Graal studio”. However, as this piece (i) Was purchased together with two Ariel vases from 1939 and (ii) Looks much more like something from before the war than after, it is likely to be one of rather few "cartridges"/"ämnen" that survived the war so as later to be blown into something. I.e., this is probably a pre-war design completed (or signed) in 1948. Strangely, Öhrström was much more likely to be inspired by Picasso in his very limited Graal-designs, than in his much more numerous Ariel-designs - maybe he used Thick Graal for experimentation... In this Thick Graal, Öhrström most certainly got things right and had it only been a size or two larger, it would most definitely have been a best-Graal contender. More

The @ Ravenna

This boat-shape was common among the earliest Ravennas, and itʼs maybe in these early boat-shapes - often with semi-figurative motifs, a clear base, a matching rim and a double layer of glass plates - that the Ravenna reaches itʼs highest level. When I - in my book - talk about the best Ravennas combining technique and artistry to reach world class, this is the sort of object Iʼm referring to. In later Ravennas the colour-powder was often forgotten or seen as an unnecessary nuisance. In the early Ravennas however, the colour-powder was an important ingredient, and this very early Ravenna illustrates this very well. Having the rim in a different colour than the background, particularly in the same colour as the motif, was not unusual for the early Ravennas. We all know that Sven Palmqvist was a great technician - that he allegedly invented Ravenna, Kraka, Fuga, Selena, etc. - but few, if any had realized that, as this piece proves, he was thinking about inventing the internet. More

Autumn Leafs Ravenna

Blue & Red Rider

When two colours were combined in an Ariel piece, they were normally contrasted; never have I seen two colours so harmonizing, melting into one another like this. “The Blue & Red Rider” is - in my opinion, taken for all in all - the most attractive Ariel I have ever seen (beware, the photos does not make the piece justice). More

Hald Ariel

Read the books written on Orrefors and its history [including mine], and you will learn that Gate and Hald stayed away from Ariel-making, sort of leaving this “new technique” to the two new guys on the block [Lindstrand & Öhrström]. This little bowl proves us all wrong. This, a not all that beautiful a bowl that carries the name of Edward Hald is, as far as I know, the only Ariel by Hald ever to reach the market and possibly the only ever made. The bowl, in the base, has an uncoloured line right across it, something that can hardly have been put there intentionally. More

Heaven and Hell

“Heaven and Hell” was designed for the Paris Exhibition in 1925, and it is one of the few main engraved pieces that can actually be identified from the photos from the fair. Other examples of this model can be seen in “Simon Gate, Edward Hald” p 80, “LʼArt d ́écoratif modern en Suede” p 25 and in The Brilliance of Swedish Glass p 212. This piece is, as far as I know, the only example of “Heaven and Hell”, having reached the auction houses. Thus, if it is so, and if one holds Orreforsʼ engraved pieces above the coloured - and "Heaven and Hell" above the “Bacchus Bowl” and “Girls Playing Ball” - then this is arguably the best piece of Swedish glass ever having reached the market. The dish is of later date, and not of a corresponding quality. More

Early Graal Experiment

The first properly signed thick Graal, Orrefors is not believed have been produced until 1937. Before that - before Thin Graal was turned into Thick Graal - some experimenting had been done. Such transitional pieces were not signed “Graal”. This is such a piece. More

Gate Portrait 

This portrait of an unknown man was made from a drawing by Simon Gate. Both Simon Gate and Edward Hald are known to have made such portraits, though their numbers are extremely limited (try to enter Orrefors, Gate, engraved, portrait on Google). Their main use was as exclusive presents, given as presents by Orrefors, the Swedish government or by the artists themselves. An engraving like this gives the engraver an opportunity an excellent opportunity, quite possibly the best, to show off his skill. Gösta Elgström - Simon Gate's favourite engraver, upon seeing this portrait - claimed responsibility for the engraving; A portrait like this tests the engraverʼs skill like nothing else, be it a “Heaven and Hell”, “The Paris Goblet” or “The Bacchus Bowl”, said Gösta Elgström to me. However, though Gösta Elgström recalled having made the engraving, he didnʼt remember who the depicted man was. When this piece was exhibited at Orreforsʼ showrooms in Malmö much effort was given to the task of identifying this man and though none succeeded, there were several suggestions, varying from a Norwegian king to a taxi driver with whom Gate run up a big tab. More

Aqva Graal

This “Aqva Graal” in the shape of a pear is one of rather few relatively pleasant-looking objects made in this technique that is sort of a mixture of Thick Graal, Ariel and Ravenna. The pear-shape was occasionally used when making “Slipgraals”, and the Aqva-Graalʼs closest living relative indeed is said to be the “Slipgraal”. Yet, this piece has a pattern resembling that of a Ravenna, the thickness of a Thick Graal, the air-bubbles of an Ariel, the shape of an unusual Slipgraal and the look of a thick graal: a strange piece indeed. More

THE CATALOGUE'S INTRODUCTION

C’est insensé, et si cela ne brise pas notre logique, cela provoque au moins une désagréable dissonance. Et cependant c’est cette convention arbitraire qui nous fournit, paradoxalement, notre titre, car le caractère du « Primitif » est de ne dire que l’essentiel, sans rechercher les effets de perspective, de construction, de réalisme anatomique, etc...

La Renaissance, dans sa plénitude, n’a jamais atteint l’Espagne. A part la peinture, son influence dans la pensée, l’architecture et surtout dans la sculpture est restée très limitée. Le baroque est venu, presque sans transition, succéder aux arts médiévaux. Voilà pourquoi les auteurs de cette collection, artisans, sculpteurs anonymes, bergers, religieux et religieuses, restèrent primitifs esthétiquement parlant pendent un millénaire.

On peut constater les différentes influences subies pendant ces siècles, y compris même celles de la lointaine Flandre. Mais la véritable base, la source, restera et reste la conception primitive aussi bien au sens spirituel qu’historique.

Qu’il nous soit pardonne se, pour certaines pièces, il se trouve quelque erreur dans l’appréciation de l’époque. Ave l’aide de Maria Luisa Gomez Moreno, la plus haute autorité espagnole en ce domaine que nous tenons à remercier pour son aide si précieuse, nous avons fait pour les mieux. Mais certaines pièces, notamment celles de Galice, ou, au XVIe encore, le style roman dominait toujours l’esprit  de plusieurs sculpteurs, nous laissent dans l’expectative, d’autant plus qu’elles furent repeintes au cours des deux derniers siècles.

My father, Andres Laszlo Sr. was an avid collector. However, unlike me, he had the good sense to exhibit his collections and occasionally sell a piece or two, something I have failed miserably in, resulting in that I now can no longer afford to keep them. The pieces displayed below are all listed in the last exhibition - 1000 ans de sculpture primitive Espagnole/collection A. Laszlo - at Galerie Jean-Francois Apesteguy, Deauville 1969 in Paris.

This, as far as I know, was the last time the collection was shown to the public. I know for certain that they have been exhibited in New York, Anesi (France) and Paris, i.e., on three continents, but as it was once my father's main income, there must have been many other places. There are copies of the 1969 catalogue and two old catalogs. You can read the French catalog here.

In the catalog, you can find information about height, age, where the piece was bought (i.e., not necessarily from where it originates). Below you can see slideshows of some of the most interesting pieces:

  • SPANISH SCULPTURES - PART I

    Saint Anne, the Virgin and the Baby Jesus

    Time has, unfortunately, had its way with this charming old sculpture. It has number "2" in the exhibition catalogue" 1000 ans de sculpture primitive espagnole/collection A. Laszlo when it was last exhibited at Galerie Jean-Francois Apesteguy, Deauville, 1969 in Paris. Images

     

     

    Christ Aux Outrages

    It could well be that this piece, that had number "3" in the 1969 catalogue, has been incorrectly attributed, I believe, and many have suggested that this is an early "Virgin en Majesté". Whether or not, this exquisite old piece had number "2" in the exhibition catalogue "1000 ans de sculpture primitive espagnole/collection A.

    Okay, so it might not be totally free from blemishes, but then several of the apostles are said to have been seriously badly treated, which I hope shall make this sort of ok. This seriously hard-done-by apostle had number "7" in the exhibition catalogue "1000 ans de sculpture primitive espagnole/collection A.

    Saint Martin (from tours)

    This is an absolutely amazing sculpture. It's in an absolutely unbelievably good state. Of course, I cannot say that it was never, like for instance in the 15th century, restored. However, I can tell you that it looks absolutely fantastic and the horse is definitely out of this world. This rider had number "9" in the exhibition catalogue "1000 ans de sculpture primitive espagnole/collection A.

175 snails, and yet not four! He will become a collector. 
Jenny Aspenwall Bradley

 

 

Senior was a true collector, in the sense that he enjoyed collecting for the sake of it, and he put together collections of all the four series of Goyas engravings - Los Caprichos, Los Desastres de la Guerra, Los Proverbios, and La Tauromaquia - as well as collections of "1000 Years of Naive Spanish Sculptures" and one of Spanish religious glass-paintings, the latter presented below. Collecting can be fun, and Senior radiated with joy as he told who had been sneaking around Tangiers at night, bulling down bullfighting posters that in reality was first-prints of La Tauromaquia. I had a lot of fun as a collector as well - Senior's literary agent said the above about me as Senior proudly declared that I had started to collect snails - but as it was about to get the better of me, a friend told me "Andres, you are becoming a crook!" and that sort of jolted me out of my passion.

  • SPANISH SCULPTURES

    The sculptures here presented were last shown to the public in 1969. I, Andres Laszlo Jr., inherited them in 1985 together with a collection of glass paintings. I have since then sold the collection off "from below," so that today I am left with the 30 or so most attractive pieces, apart from 4 medieval polychrome Virgins. They have been exhibited all over Europe and in the United States. The photo shows my father explaining something about the glass paintings to Juan Miro. These (35 or so) glass-paintings from 17th/18th Century) also are included in the collection). In 1969 the collection (131 pieces) was exhibited on "Galeri Jean-Francois Apesteguy Deauville 1969". Today I have sold "the least attractive" on Alcala Auctions in Madrid, and I am looking for a way to sell the remaining quality-part together with the glass-paintings. Below some of them are presented.

    The catalogue (in translation) was titled "1000 Years of Primitive Spanish Sculptures"/The Andres Laszlo Collection" and can be viewed here. The collection has been "authenticated" by the then leading authority in the field (my father did that) and later by the chief antiquarian at the Louvre in Paris (I did that). There were other catalogues, but these have been lost, so if you have one, please make contact. An evaluation of thecollection from 1969 is available. As you can see on this website, I am about to start promoting my and my father's texts, and I am therefore eager to sell. I have photos of all 33 sculptures and 55 glass-paintings: just ask and I will send. Read More 

  • SWEDISH CRYSTAL

    I started collecting Swedish art glass as a way to become well-enough off to venture out on an all-the-things-a-ma-should-have-done-project, but half way though the project, I was captured by the beauty of Swedish Crystal, and I even wrote a book about it (Svenskt Konstglas). It was fun when I tried to challenge Birgitta, the biggest actor on the market, by obsessively pursuing my desire to put together an excellent Orrefors collection during the 1980s. Of course, I failed – she was a billionaire, and I was a pauper, at least relatively speaking – but I still managed to put together a seriously good collection. However, I felt sad the day that I realized that I would probably never be able to afford to complete my collection, donate it to Moderna Museet, and maybe get an “Andres Laszlo, Jr., Collection room” named after me; something I believe my father would have approved of and appreciated (and even been a wee bit jealous of). Though I love Swedish art glass, especially Orrefors 1920 - 1940, I have started to sell off my collection. Read More

     
  • GLASSPAINTINGS

    The painting of glass-paintings has probably existed for nearly as long as glass panes have existed, which in the case of Spain brings it back to and past the middle of the second millennia. It was a trade (or, at its best, a profession) that more often than not would call for an artist/artisan with an itinerant spirit because the painting of glass-paintings was strongly associated with the traveling artisans, and the chosen motifs were equally strongly associated not only with religion but also with the naive/popular tradition of art that for nearly a millennia (early on, especially as sculptures) existed alongside more "legitimate" traditions aligning themselves with mainstream European styles.  Read More
