Sale Overview

Our November 20th American Art auction features an outstanding selection of works ranging from American Modernism and Illustration to the Hudson River School and art of the American West. The sale includes strong works from the Wyeth family, including Andrew Wyeth’s stunning tempera Oliver’s Cap from the Ron and Diane Disney Miller Collection and a striking N.C. Wyeth of the infamous pirate Blackbeard. American Modernist icons, such as Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe and Marsden Hartley, feature alongside Grant Wood’s charming Adolescence. The Collection of Richard L. Weisman headlines our offering of American Illustration with Norman Rockwell’s Harvest Moon, while nineteenth-century works include a rare Civil War oil painting by Winslow Homer. Further highlights of the sale are a beautiful Isles of Shoals painting by Childe Hassam and Western works by Albert Bierstadt and Eanger Irving Couse.

The auction will be exhibited in our Rockefeller Center galleries in New York from 16-19 November.
