The Coeur d’Alene Art Auction (Reno, Nevada) is pleased to announce its 34th annual Western art auction, to be held at the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada, on July 25, 2019. With over $300 million in sales over the last fifteen years, the auction has been hailed as “The Biggest and Most Successful Auction of Western Art” by the Wall Street Journal and was named “The Most Important Annual Event for Collectors of Western Art” by the New York Times.

Coeur d’Alene Art Auction
CHARLES M. RUSSELL (1864–1926), “Creased,” 1911, watercolor, 28 x 23 in. Presale Estimate: $800,000–$1,200,000

From the organizers:

Museum-quality paintings will cross the block, headlined by a pair of masterpieces by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. “Casuals on the Range” is a rare oil by Remington, and Russell’s “Creased” is a prime 1911 watercolor. Both come from the estate of John J. “Jack” Mitchell, a renowned collector and co-founder of United Airlines. Mitchell began collecting in the 1930s and amassed a fine collection of Western art. Both paintings are fresh to the market and carry presale estimates of $800,000–$1,200,000.
