More than 150 works of art from a major Northern California art museum will be part of Sacramento-based Witherell’s auction that runs online from November 4 to 18, 2015.

The art ranges from 19th century European and American to contemporary 21st century works and Asian.

Contemporary Northern California artists from a well-known museum abound in the fall auction of more than 400 lots.

Wayne Thiebaud has a familiar etching, entitled “Toy Box” while Tony King has a landscape, Karl Kasten an abstract, Robert Ransome a humorous man with dog, and Clay Pinkerton a satiric painting of the capitol.

“It’s a fun and eclectic mix—and the artists are all well known,” said Brian Witherell, Witherell’s chief operating officer. “The work is inspired by comic books, photo realism, Latin art and more.”
