MONROVIA, Calif. – On May 25, the spirit of the wild west flowed through the 10,000-square-foot showroom at John Moran Auctioneers during its Art of the American West sale. Cowboys and American Indians played nicely through paintings and bronze sculptures, but there was a showdown of epic proportions between bidders participating on every platform available. Beautiful hand-woven rugs, blankets, and baskets had a 100% sell-through rate, and contemporary Western artwork earned its place next to historical depictions of the West, placing bright splashes of color next to rich browns and reds.
