GUY PÈNE DU BOIS Exceeds Estimates!!!

Whew, what a day for Mr. Du Bois at Sotheby's today. A painting, "Paris Railroad Station" by Guy Pene Du Bois has sold at more than twice the estimate of $150,000—250,000 for a whopping $512,000. It's my guess that this is a record for a Du Bois painting. Something to check out, but I wouldn't be too surprised if that is a record.
Guy's brother Rene was a noted Broadway Set Designer and I would bet that his prices are on the rise as well, although clearly not in the same range - since oil paintings always fetch higher prices than the " workaday" renderings, sketches and designs for the theater in any case.
