NANTUCKET, Mass. — Esteemed auction house Rafael Osona brings to market quality Nantucket-related art and estate merchandise in its 660-lot Late Summer Auction set for Saturday, August 26. Online bidding is available through LiveAuctioneers.

The sale features objet d’art from the estate of Stephen Weinroth of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and also the contents of several recently sold Nantucket ocean-front homes and estates.

A key grouping of works by famed Nantucket artist John Austin (1918-2001) are included in the sale. Austin’s Nantucket body of work is substantial, and entirely reflective of the locale. A skilled draftsman, he would often sketch his subjects on location, making detailed notes for color, and later finished the work in his studio.

Leading the lots is Sankaty Head Light Interior, a tempera on board estimated at $1,800$2,500. 

Another important lot is Fishing Vessel Johnny A. Entering Nantucket Harbor at the Jetty, depicting a classic American trawler. It carries an estimate of $1,500$2,000.

A small grouping of items from Nantucket artist Harriet Mottes is also featured. Mottes was known for painting Nantucket scenes both on board and on boxes. Nantucket’s North Wharf Cottages, painted on a cherry Shaker box, is estimated at $400$600. 

And what Nantucket-themed home would be complete without Weatherend furniture? The Maine-based company creates island lifestyle outdoor furnishings, often finished in what’s known as “white yacht” paint, so perfect for any beach setting. A pair of Weatherend Southern Harbor chaise lounges, with two end tables, are estimated at $2,000$3,000. 

The top lot in the sale is a Donald Allen Mosher (1945-2014) oil on canvas entitled Glory Days, Gloucester, Massachusetts. The 30.5 by 36in. original is estimated at $6,000$8,000.
