CHICAGO – An extraordinary surreal Gertrude Abercrombie painting set a new world auction record for the artist at Hindman Auctions on February 17 when it sold for $387,500. The 1964 oil on panel, entitled The Dinosaur, was the highlight of Hindman’s Somewhere Out There auction, which featured incredible one-of-a-kind artworks from the more “out there” regions of the imagination. Led by the Abercrombie piece, the auction achieved a total of $970,656, nearly tripling its presale estimate.
