American Art

The American Art department specializes in historically significant paintings, drawings and sculpture, encompassing a wide range of schools and genres from the nineteenth century through modernism. The department has contributed to scholarship with the rediscovery and authentication of long-lost works, including Sanford Robinson Gifford’s Study of the Parthenon, 1869, which sold in June 2016 for $269,000.

Top lots include The Beach, Isle Adam, by William Glackens, which sold for $581,000 in June 2017. In the same sale, a rediscovered watercolor by John Marin, titled Small Point, Maine, from the Bumper, reached $50,000.

The department offers original works by such artists as Charles Burchfield, Elsie Driggs, Walt Kuhn, John La Farge, Joseph Stella, Abraham Walkowitz, Guy C. Wiggins and Marguerite Zorach. Notable collections offered include James D. Smilie’s late nineteenth century drawings, as well as Paul Cadmus & His Circle, which featured works previously in the artist’s collection, including the egg tempera and oil painting Venus and Adonis for $245,000, consigned by Jon Anderson and Philis Raskind-Anderson.
