Dozens of original artworks and other personal effects from the estate of John Douglas Patrick (1863-1937), who studied in France and achieved worldwide acclaim by being one of the first Americans ever to be awarded a medal by the Paris Salon in 1889 for his seminal work Brutality, will be sold in an online auction Monday, January 15th, at 7 pm Central. The auction is being conducted by KC Auction & Appraisal Company, based in Kansas City, Mo. The catalog is scheduled to be published and open for pre-bidding on New Year’s Day, January 1st, at the website www.kcauctioncompany.com. There will be no live, phone or absentee (left) bidding. It’s an absolute auction; everything sells to the highest bidder, regardless of final price. The auction will exclusively feature artworks by Patrick, plus other items from his estate. The balance of his body of work and personal effects will be sold over the course of several more auctions, folded into general fine art and antique auctions planned throughout 2018 by KC Auction & Appraisal Company. All 500-600 of his artworks have been stored away for decades. The artworks in the January sale cover a wide range of styles. Patrick was a classically trained figural painter who also created wonderful plein air (outdoor) works depicting fields, orchards, trees and other nature-related subjects. His drawings and portraits are mostly classical in nature.
