A prosperous and admired medical doctor in Chicago, Dr. Chua quietly assembled his extraordinary collection over the course of three decades. With a discerning eye for quality and the curiosity of a true connoisseur, he was drawn to the colorful and innovative works in glass inspired by natural forms created during the Art Nouveau era. The collection is rich with fine examples of French art glass by such prominent makers as Daum, Gallé, Majorelle and Gabriel Argy-Rousseau, as well as a selection of pieces by American makers Handel, Pairpoint and Tiffany Studios.
Color & Light: The Collection of Dr. Thomas Chua will be presented as a featured section of the Doyle at Home auction. These popular sales attract thousands of savvy, sophisticated buyers with a diversity of stylish furniture, decorations and art from prominent estates and collections in the New York area and across the country.
Additional property from the Collection of Dr. Thomas Chua comprising paintings, prints, jewelry and coins will be offered in select sales during the upcoming season.
