Brunk Auc­tions will host its three-day Pre­mium & Em­po­rium Auc­tion Septem­ber 12 to 14 with an ar­ray of paint­ings, sculp­tures and more hit­ting the block. Among the ma­jor high­lights in the Amer­i­can art cat­e­gory are Charles An­drew Hafner’s A Mother with Two Chil­dren and Hans Hof­mann’s Fall Fo­liage. Hafner’s sculp­ture, as the auc­tion house ex­plains, is “rem­i­nis­cent of Venus and frol­ick­ing putti but re­flected in an earthy man­ner, sug­gest­ing a happy fam­ily, per­haps even his own. ”the Hof­mann, fea­tures the reds, or­anges and greens that are as­so­ci­ated with au­tumn. Both works have pre­sale es­ti­mates of $20,000 to $30,000.
