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.
