NEW ORLEANS – Crescent City’s two-day Important Summer Estates Auction, slated for Friday and Saturday, July 15 and 16, will be packed with nearly 900 lots of French, English and American furniture, original paintings by noted regional artists, French clocks, bronzes and porcelain. The sessions will start at 10 am Central time both days. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
The selection of artworks will be led by Greenwood, a 1985 oil on panel by James Kendrick III (American, 1946-2013), estimated at $700-$900; and a 1978 embellished lithograph with collage by Robert Allen Nelson (American, 1925-2021), titled Cannonball Cadre and estimated at $300-$500.
