The entire contents of the Riverdale, N.Y., estate that served as a set for the black comedy-cult classic will be sold, without minimums or reserves.
“Bad” (official title: “Andy Warhol's Bad”) tells the story of a woman named Hazel (played by Carroll Baker) who runs a beauty shop out of her house but makes money by providing ruthless women to provide hit jobs.

The plot thickens when L.T. -- a parasitic male friend, played by Perry King – contacts Hazel looking for work when he runs out of money. She reluctantly assigns him a trial hit.
Several other side plots are woven in, populated with characters from the sleazy side of life. Warhol produced the film, for his legendary Factory Films company. “Bad” was nominated for two awards by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. Carroll Baker won for Best Supporting Actress. Vivian Vance (“Ethel Mertz” on “I Love Lucy”) turned down the role of Hazel.

The “Bad” property will be the centerpiece of Stamford Auction's inaugural sale at its new location. The firm was previously housed in the historic former Yale & Towne Manufacturing building, located at 737 Canal Street in Stamford. Rapid growth, and a 2006 fire at the Yale & Towne facility, necessitated a move. The new location comprises 13,000 square feet of clean, user-friendly space.

The sale will also feature important 20th century designer furnishings, to include a set of 10 George Nakashima dining chairs and a Philip Laverne dining table, as well as many exceptional paintings from the American Collection of Swiss Re-Insurance Company; plus additional paintings from an important New York estate. Just a few of the renowned, listed artists in the auction include:

Hermann Herzog (American, 1832-1932). Born in Bremen, Germany, in 1832, Herzog died 100 years later in Philadelphia. He was known for his landscapes and seascapes, as well as many views of Norway. Among his collectors were Queen Victoria and Czar Alexander II. Two of his paintings will be sold: “The Little Goose Girl” (oil on panel) and “View of the Mountains” (oil on canvas).

Eliot Clark (American, 1883-1980). Son of the landscape painter Walter Clark, Eliot was a precocious artist who became a landscape painter in the late American Impressionist style. A move from New York City to Albemarle, Va., in 1932 made him one of the few Impressionist artists in the Southern states. His work “At the Pond, Autumn” (oil on canvas), will come under the gavel.

Ernest Albert (American, 1857-1946). Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Mr. Albert was a distinguished theatrical and scenic designer who later became a noted landscape painter and muralist. He showed talent early on, and received the Graham Art Medal at age 15. Two of his works will be offered: “A Sea of Opal” (oil on canvas) and “Winter Twilight” (oil on canvas).

Richard Edward Miller (American, 1875-1943). A plein-air painter as well as an illustrator, Mr. Miller was especially known for his paintings of female figures in sunlit interiors. He was part of the American art colony in Paris from 1894-1914. Two of his works will be sold: an oil on canvas portrait of a seated lady; and an oil on canvas portrait of a father and daughter on a farmstead.
