The James Fairfax Collection of Decorative Arts sells for $1.74 million
Featuring the “Collection of the Late Dr Erst Fooks”. Leonard Joel is proud to be entrusted with the dispersal of the personal collection of the late Dr Ernest Fooks, a well respected architect and cultural visionary of Melbourne. The residence of 32 Howitt Road Caulfield which Dr Fooks shared with his wife Noemi is of great historical significance to Victoria and encapsulates the correlation between architecture and bespoke interiors, which was a hallmark of interior design in Melbourne post World War II. Dr Fooks was a highly talented, progressive, European-trained migrant who made an important contribution to architecture, education of town planners, and to the cultural life of Melbourne in the decades immediately following the Second World War. The auction will showcase a variety of Scandinavian and Australian post-war furniture, complemented by ceramics and art from the period.
