Art, Prints, Automotive, Horses, Golf, Etc.

Worth Auctions is pleased to present an extensive and carefully selected group of fine and decorative prints, paintings, and drawings. Central to this specialist art sale is a fine array of antique natural history prints by such masters as Audubon, Wolf, Thornton, Smit, Ettingshausen, Redoute, Catesby, and Gould. These include scores of classic ornithological and botanical images as well as compelling renderings of rarer subjects like tigers and buffalo. Modern and contemporary pieces will also be featured, including an early Jim Dine masterpiece; several pastel portraits by Howard L. Munns; and distinctive paintings by First Nation artists Gerda Christofferson, James Allen, and James Marshall Speck that are ex-collection of a major Canadian museum. Automotive enthusiasts will take great interest in the unique vintage concept drawings by noted designers like Alex Tremulis, Richard Arbib, and William A. Moore, as well as the series of pochoir prints of early race cars by Gamy-Montaut. Likewise, sporting fans will enjoy Marco Ceri's oil on copper scenes of Edwardian golfers, poloists, and tennis players, as well as Girard Thibault?s seventeenth-century fencing prints. Also worthy of special mention are a quintet of hand-colored aquatints after Karl Bodmer depicting American Indians; a series of lithographs by David Roberts showing monuments of the Near East; a majestic color lithograph of the Grand Canyon after Thomas Moran; a pair of Western etchings by Edward Borein; and an excellent example of Eugene Delacroix's famous 1865 etching "Juive d'Alger." Further complementary material will be featured in future sessions in 2017. These cataloged live sales will take place in the Galleries at Worth Asset Brokerage in Freeville, New York and will be simulcast to a global bidding audience via Invaluable, LiveAuctioneers, and eBay Live.
