An American LOT to talk about

Auction houses like Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Phillips and others offer free admission to selling exhibitions for a few days before each auction. From time to time I will select notable auction lots to bring to your attention. This blog feature is not endorsed by the auction house nor written by any kind of art expert. Just idle musings that I hope encourages you to visit an auction house yourself to see what’s on view and available in New York City.

Sotheby’s New York will present an American Painting Sale on March 28.  The exhibit is open from March 24 to 27.  There are some notable names in the sale from Norman Rockwell to Grandma Moses to Wolf Kahn.  I know that collectors value the artist message, what the provenance is, the relative value and scarcity.  Sometimes I just like to topic of a particular painting.  Is that so wrong?  So here is my choice from the sale, the view from one of my favorite corners of Central Park.  I just love the view.  Enjoy.
