Es­ti­mated to fetch be­tween $250,000 and $450,000, the paint­ing was a gift for their host­ess Madame Eu­ge­nia Er­rázuriz, and El­iz­a­beth Mann Rhodes, Dal­las Auc­tion Gallery’s fine arts as­so­ciate di­rec­tor, notes,“this fresco cel­e­brates the artist’s new marriage to Olga Khokhlova as well as the love and in­spi­ra­tion he drew from the Mediter­ranean.”

The sale will fea­ture a large se­lec­tion of works by Texas artists, in­clud­ing paint­ings by Por­firio Sali­nas and Robert Wood, who con­tin­u­ally prove pop­u­lar with col­lec­tors.wood’s un­ti­tled oil show­cases a tra­di­tional Texas scene of a field of blue­bon­nets at sun­set, and is es­ti­mated at $6,000 to $8,000. Sali­nas’ Au­tumn in Hill Coun­try is es­ti­mated to achieve $10,000 to $15,000.

Rhodes says, “Known and beloved for his land­scapes of the Texas Hill Coun­try, this work by Sali­nas cap­tures the colors of a beau­ti­ful fall day, com­plete with bright, au­tumn leaves and a crisp blue sky.”
