Covering November’s new drops, restocks, and promising auctions, Something Curated has compiled a list of nine of the most coveted items available for purchase this month, spanning art, fashion, home and more.
6 Wythe Avenue Brooklyn
6 Wythe Lane is a stunning brand new single family home spanning approximately 4,454 square foot of interior living space over five floors. Oversized windows, high ceilings on every level, and the finest design and craftsmanship distinguish the home from virtually any other townhouse in Brooklyn. A private mews, Wythe Lane, runs behind the townhouse garden, providing a distinctive entryway for welcoming guests into the home. Available at Town Residential.
Got Me Scattered in Pieces, 2016 || Jala Wahid
London-based visual artist Jala Wahid’s works, often executed in pinks, oranges and reds, simultaneously evoke a feeling of repulsion and sensuality. In many of Wahid’s pieces, conventional sculptural materials such as plaster, acrylic paint, lacquer, ceramic, steel, bronze and copper are combined with less expected, sometimes edible elements including sugar, grapefruit, clove and bergamot oils as well as Kurdish sweets, touching on Wahid’s heritage. Available at Paddle8.
Los Angeles No. 1, 2000 || R.B. Kitaj, R.A.
This work is part of a series by American artist R.B. Kitaj, depicting the artist and his beloved wife and muse Sandra Fisher, who tragically died of an aneurism in 1994. Los Angeles No. 1 is the first in the series, showing Kitaj reuniting with Sandra in the afterlife in a variety of erotic embraces, portrayed as angels. These personal paintings mark an important stylistic departure for Kitaj. Available at Christie’s.

Veneto-Byzantine Ring, 15th Century || Unknown Maker

The Beard Pictures || Gilbert & George
To coincide with the collaborative duo’s latest exhibition THE BEARD PICTURES AND THEIR FUCKOSOPHY, White Cube has published this catalogue with writing from Michael Bracewell.

Available at White Cube.
Fashion Together: Fashion’s Most Extraordinary Duos on the Art of Collaboration || Lou Stoppard
