Sarasota Estate Auction To Sell 1,500 Lots Of Art And Antiques
Two-Day Sale Set For Sept. 18 And 19
The second day will lead off with an oil-on-canvas by Peter Caledon Cameron and followed by an Eric Sloane painting of the New York skyline with one of its bridges. Over 800 lots each day of the sale will include Chinese, American, African and European artifacts, art, and bronzes, with a large collection of marble sculptures and porcelains from the 17th century.
American George Inness (1854-1926), often called "the father of American landscape painting, is best known for his works that exemplified the Tonalist Movement but also displayed an original and uniquely American style. An oil on canvas, Montclair, will go up for bids. An original piece by Howard Chesner Behrens (1933-2014) will also be sold. He was known to have said, Many years ago, I learned that the only way I can really achieve what I feel in my paintings is to create them using a palette knife instead of a brush. Additionally works sold will be from G.L. Brown (1814-89), Henry Justice Ford (1860-1941), and R. Yoshida (1868-1912). And not to be forgotten are works by Andy Warhol and Picasso on the block.
As always, the auction will include exceptional furniture and home furnishings such as American, Continental and English furniture.
