"Highlights from this remarkable sale will include a Floridian coastline by Harold Newton, one of the founding members of the Florida Highwaymen, and a collection of paintings from three generations of the artistic Widlicka (Widlizcka) family - Anton, Leopold and Frederick," said Serena Harragin of Gray's Auctioneers. "The Newton painting is one of the finest Highwaymen works I have ever seen."

Harold Newton (1934-1994) was a founding member of the Florida Highwaymen, a group of African American landscape painters. His work in the sale, titled Beach Scene, is an oil on canvas board nicely housed in a 28 inch by 34 inch frame. It carries a pre-sale estimate of $20,000-$40,000 and was acquired directly from Mr. Newton by the consignor.

The Widliczka collection includes a 19th century ink and gouache on paper by Anton Widliczka, titled Crucifixion of Jesus, signed and dated ("1898") lower center and presented in an 11 inch by 8 ¼ inch frame (est. $800-$1,200); and an oil on canvas by Frederick Widlicka (1907-1994), titled Adirondacks Post Office, Upper St. Regis Landing, signed and dated "77" lower left and in a frame (est. $200-$400).

A 1940 lithograph titled Approaching Storm from an edition of 250, signed by Grant Wood (American, 1892-1942), famous for his iconic work American Gothic, 11 ¾ inches by 8 ¾ inches, has an estimate of $2,000-$4,000. Also, an oil on canvas signed front and back by Walter C. Hartson (American, 1866-1946), Wassaic, New York, Early Spring, in a 42 inch by 48 inch frame, should sell for $1,500-$2,5000.
