A forthcoming sale at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers features 19th and 20th century artwork from American and European masters
Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ upcoming American and European Art sale will take place on October 15 beginning at 10 a.m. and features fine art from distinguished private collections, including the collection of M.anthony Greene in Jackson, wyoming, and the estate of William Yaple in Naples, Florida. A preview of these paintings will be open to the public starting October 11 through 14.
Among the works in the sale are pieces by Childe Hassam, Frederick
Carl Frieseke ,adawalter Shulz, Thomas Moran and Guy Carleton Wiggins, as well as European masters. A common theme, especially among works by Hassam and Moran, is setting. One of the top highlights of the sale is Hassam’s landscape Aspens, Isles of Shoals, Late Afternoon, a bright and airy impressionist piece that serves as a prime example of the artist’s Maine coastal scenes.the piece comes from the collection of M.anthony Greene with an estimate of $80,000 to $120,000.“It’s a wonderful work from his time in Maine,” says Anastasia Hall, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers’ senior fine art specialist.“hassam spent quite a lot of time painting outdoors up there. It’s estimated that about 10 percent of his total body of work came from Isle of Shoals,” she says, adding that the body of work is nearly forgotten, as people do not frequently visit that area anymore.
Moran’s Cataloochee Mountain, North Carolina (est. $8/12,000) is “a wonderful work,” says Hall.“it is a place in North Carolina that’s really specific to Southerners... people from
the South will immediately recognize it in terms of what it represents—it’s beautiful and full of wilderness.” Hall adds that the Cataloochee Mountain area hasn’t been touched by the tourist industry too heavily, allowing it to remain a special spot for locals.
An oil by Frieseke, The Fur-trimmed Peignoir (est. $50/70,000), circa 1919, portrays a young, crimson-haired woman in a floral gown with bright red trim.the painting, which was exhibited at the Terra Museum in 1983, comes from a private Chicago collection. Other notable pieces in the sale include an oil by Wiggins titled Wall Street View of Old Trinity in Winter (est. $15/25,000) and Shulz’s A Windy Day, a cheery oil depicting two children in a field beneath a cloudy sky, estimated at $20,000 to $40,000.
