Highlights include a Frank Schoonover painting Trappers on the Lake ($150/250,000), important watercolors by Frank W. Benson, two quintessential Edmund Osthaus oil paintings, the Ernest and Carolyn Kramer Collection of American Prints, and exemplary works by sporting art masters. Decoy highlights include a stellar selection of works by A.E. Crowell, such as a rare “dust jacket” plover in original paint and emerging plumage ($30/40,000). Also set to cross the block is a rare Charles Birch swan ($60/70,000) and a flying mallard pair with outstretched wings carved and painted by the Ward brothers of Crisfield, Maryland ($40/50,000).
