SHANNON’S ONLINE SPRING AUCTION FEATURES AMERICAN ART, MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ART AND FINE PRINTS
MILFORD, CONN. - Shannon’s recently expanded their online auction program in response to the developing “stay home, stay safe” public health initiatives, postponing their Spring catalog and opting to proceed with an online auction. The online auction will take place on Thursday, April 30th at 2:00PM. The catalog is now available on shannons.com and via Invaluable.com.
There is no shortage of quality in Shannon’s 185-lot online auction. The sale is led by a Daniel Ridgway Knight painting titled Summer Afternoon, Seine Valley. The painting is of a young peasant woman in a colorful garden, with the Seine River visible in the background. Purchased in New York City at John Levy Galleries, the painting descended in one family for generations and is now being offered at a $35,000-45,000 estimate.
Other highlights in American Impressionism include a watercolor Ravine at Arkville, New York by Walter Launt Palmer, Horse Drawn Carriage by the Shore, Florida by Gifford Beal and Preparing the Boat by Anthony Thieme among others.
