Upcoming Auction Preview: Bonhams & Butterfields




Bonhams & Butterfields Auctioneers is hosting an auction of California and American Paintings & Sculpture in August. The bidding begins at 6:00 PM on the 3rd, but the auction is in previews leading up to the auction in both San Francisco and Los Angeles. It is another great opportunity to see this wonderful artwork all in one location.





It looks like an incredible group of works for sale, especially in the arena of California art. Artists in the auction include Edgar Payne, Maynard Dixon, Richard Schmid, William Wendt, and Granville Redmond, just to name a few. To see the lots, check out the online exhibition catalog.






Previews begin July 24th in San Francisco, and continue through the 26th. On the 31st of July, the previews open in Los Angeles, and remain on view until the auction. Whether San Francisco or Los Angeles, viewing hours are from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM. For more information, visit Bonhams website.

Interesting, there is a piece by Richard Schmid. Using the Flash mode you can zoom in brushstroke close. Looking at the signature there is a significant change from what may be familiar to many people. Oddly enough he wrote out his full name and with a back slant.
