By: Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers
The auction – 380 lots in all – will be held online and in the Bruneau & Co. gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston. Online bidding will be provided by bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com, Bidsquare.com, LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com, or by downloading the mobile app "Bruneau & Co." on iTunes or GooglePlay. Telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted.
A 200-lot pre-auction, with no online bidding, will precede the main event, at 10 am Eastern.
"This auction is sure to have something for every collector," promised Bruneau & Co. president Kevin Bruneau. "The selection ranges from Chinese jade and jadeite carvings to French arts and quarter-midget go-karts. It's going to be interesting to see were the final hammer falls on the Chinese censer." Doors will open promptly at 8 am Eastern time on auction day, Bruneau added.
The Chinese censer he mentioned is an 18th century Chinese Qing dynasty bronze tripod censer, originally used to burn incense to honor ancestors, purify the air or cure ailments. The front and underside of the 1 ½ inch tall censer are both impressed with the Xuande character seal mark. In overall good condition, with original untouched patina, the lot has an estimate of $3,000-$5,000.
"My personal favorite of the auction is the Heinrich Kley mythical dragon painting," said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer. "He's an artist we're very familiar with, having set his world auction record in 2017. Plus, I'm sure the Auguste Rodin study and Stanley Woodward paintings are sure to stir art collector interest. All in all, it should be a great sale."
Previews will be held Thursday and Friday, August 15th-16th, from 9 am to 5 pm Eastern time.
