Skinner Winner

In night of haphazard online auction house hunting (a welcomed distraction from the Monday Night Football humming in the background) I came across Skinner Auctions and Appraisers. Holy auction house heaven! Their September 11th auction of American & European Paintings & Prints had me basically drooling over my keyboard. I have a few items in mind for something on the horizon, but for now I will give you all a little peek inside this Boston gem.

Lot 53 After Edgar Degas (French, 1834-1917) Avant la course, 1910. Estimate $3,000-$5,000

Lot 76 Frederick Childe Hassam (American, 1859-1935) Easthampton, 1917. Estimate $2,000-$3,000

Lot 220 John S. Johnston (British/American, born c. 1839-1899) Lot of Five Yachting Images: Volunteer and Defender, Defender, Merlin, Norota, and Asthore. Estimate $800-$1,200

Lot 365 Hendrik Savry (Dutch, 1823-1907) Ships at Harbor. Estimate $2,000-$4,000

Lot 700 Attributed to Georges d'Espagnat (French, 1870-1950) Reading the Paper. Estimate $1,000-$1,500

Lot 460 Leopold Ziller (German, 19th Century) View of Venice Signed "Ziller" l.l. Estimate $800-$1,200

Lot 482 David Cunningham Lithgow (American, 1868-1958) Woods Behind David Lithgow's Cottage in the Adirondacks, 1922 . Estimate $500-$700
