Estates Fine Art & Antiques Auction, March 14th
An Impressionist oil on canvas painting by Norwegian artist Frits Thaulow (1847-1906), depicting a young woman by the edge of a river with her home in Norway behind her, is an expected headliner in Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ Estates Fine Art & Antiques auction on Saturday, March 14th, online and in the Cranston, Rhode Island gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue, at 11 am EST. The painting, titled Woman by a River, has a pre-sale estimate of $15,000-$25,000. Thaulow studied art in Copenhagen with marine specialist C. F. Sorensen before going to France where he was introduced to contemporary French realism. He applied French realism to his paintings of Norway before permanently moving to France, where he mingled with French artists and became good friends with Claude Monet, effectively becoming a main link between France and Norway. Doors will open on auction day right at 8 am Eastern time. Online bidding will be facilitated by bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com, LiveAuctioneers.com, Bidsquare.com and Invaluable.com, or by downloading the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay.
