Art­work by 20th-cen­tury painters Ge­orge Ro­drigue, Nell Blaine and Woodrow Blagg were notable. Blagg’s paint­ing Three Jacks (est. $10/20,000) be­came a new auc­tion record for the artist at $23,750.An­other record set was for Nell Blaine, whose The Green Table­cloth (est. $5/7,000), sold for more than five times its low es­ti­mate at $27,500.
