Shannon's Fall Fine Art Auction, Sept. 17
Shannon’s fall auction on Thursday, September 17th, at 6 pm Eastern time, will be presented in a 180-page color catalog filled with important paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture. A live-stream of the auction and live-online bidding will be available via Invaluable.com. Telephone bids can be reserved in advance and absentee bids will be accepted before the auction. For more information, visit www.shannons.com or call 203-877-1711. The centerpiece of the sale is the Jeanne and Carroll Berry Collection, assembled with great care over the past 30 years. The collection includes works by sixteen of the original “Irascible Eighteen.” The Berrys knew “advanced art” when they saw it and collected works by these leading Abstract Expressionist artists ahead of the trend. The Berry Collection was initially advertised in the spring and has generated a buzz of excitement for the fall auction. Alongside the other quality offerings presented by Shannon’s this sale is not to be missed.
