After reinventing the process of holding an art auction during these unexpected times, the recent Scottsdale Art Auction proved to be a success. Organizers offered bidding both online and in person, with safety measures in place.
Over 350 lots of some of the finest in Western, wildlife, and sporting paintings and sculptures will be on offer in a state-of-the-art facility in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale.
Funds raised from the auction, which includes more than 200 pieces, will support frontline charities and NGOs providing healthcare, food, and guidance to those affected by the contagion.
Included in the auction are works by Mary Cassatt, Julio González, Albrecht Dürer, Francisco José de Goya, and more.
The auction will include frames that surrounded works such as van Gogh’s “Paysage sous un Ciel Mouvementé,” Rockwell’s “The Gossips,” and Picasso’s “Le Peintre et son Modèle.”
Preview this sale of Old Master & British Drawings, which offers a wide variety of works on paper covering over five hundred years of design and European creativity from around 1480 to the mid-19th century.
The 200 pieces offered for sale include work from artists’ estates the gallery represents, among them Elaine Wesley, Joseph Garlock, Konrad Cramer, Margery Ryerson, Ed Baynard, and more.
Guests to “Beaux Arts” are invited to come dressed in a 1930s, 1940s, or 1950s glam style to complement a signature painting donated by Joseph Lorusso.
This auction traces the development of draftsmanship over several centuries from late-Gothic, early-Renaissance works of the 15th century, to Baroque and Rococo drawings of the 17th and 18th centuries.
Christie’s “Thinking Italian Evening Auction” will take place during Frieze Week on October 4. Preview it here.
