Another Cropsey Discovered in New York.

While sifting through a large box lot of art dropped off at the Larchmont, NY gallery by what is known in the trade as a “picker,” Nelia Moore, Art Specialist/Auctioneer at Clarke Auction spotted a beautifully executed but very dirty painting on panel of a woman in a veil. After dusting it off and studying the painting she spotted the Prendergast Paris signature on the lower right of the panel. The quality and style of the small oil lead both Mr. Clarke, auction owner, and Ms. Moore to believe they had made a very important discovery, especially relevant in a time of economic gloom.&nb...
