American Art Auction @ Sotheby’s 11/30/04

American paintings, drawings and sculpture
including property from the collection of Rita and Daniel Fraad
Sotheby's Auction House

I stopped by to see the exhibit and I was surprised by both the amount and the quality of the art on view. Especially impressive were the number of Winslow Homer paintings, several of very high quality. I was particularly struck by a painting by Guy Pene Du Bois (an old favorite of mine). His work reminds me of a bygone era, of “olde New York” where dinner jackets, five-o clocktails and pre-theater dinners were the order of the day.
Paris Railroad Station
I am planning to stop by tomorrow to catch the auction in the late afternoon. More to follow...

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!
I have a art website antique painting for sale

That promotes my very good friend Mark Connors artwork that pretty much covers antique painting for sale
articles and other related themes.
Mark's work is the produce of his passion for art, when looking at every piece the attention to detail is nothing short of spectacular and many a person will notice different details upon each viewing, they are truly a joy to observe. There are many talented artists around the world but few achieve the effect in their work as Mark does, when looking at his work that there is more than just a painting or a illustration there is a element of fantasy behind each piece that brings the inner child out of you and draws you in.
Come and check it out if you get time :-)
