MILFORD, Conn. - Oct. 10, 2019 - PRLog -- Shannon's next major cataloged auction of Paintings, Drawings, Prints and Sculpture will be held online and in the Milford, Connecticut gallery on Thursday, October 24th at 6 pm Eastern time. The sale will feature 271 lots of quality fine art, to include American and European works from the 19th century, Impressionism, Modern and Contemporary art.

Highlights from the sale include an exceptional Grandma Moses painting Over the Bridge depicting children playing in the winter and riding a sled over a covered bridge. The scene captures all the excitement after a heavy winter snow in Moses' nostalgic, recognizable style (Estimate $80,000-120,000).

Another highlight in American Art is a sporting scene by Percival Rosseau. The painting is a master work by the artist measuring 23 x 32 inches and depicting four pointers on the hunt. Each dog has unique identifiable markings and is painted in a highly realistic style. The painting is believed to be painted at Overhills, Percy Rockefeller's hunting grounds in North Carolina (Estimate $60,000-80,000).

Leading the 19th century American Art category is a view of "Half Moon Cove at Gloucester Bay" by James Renwick Brevoort estimated at $50,000-75,000. Brevoort, a second-generation Hudson River School artist, mastered the Luminist techniques of painters like J.F. Kensett, this painting is a rare example of a Hudson River School artist painting in Gloucester. Brevoort was elected to the NAD in 1863. Another view of Gloucester Bay by Brevoort is in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

The cover lot is an engaging and beautiful portrait of a young flower girl by J.G. Brown (est. $70,000-100,000). Brown, known for his paintings of children, veered from his usual subject matter of street urchins to paint this upper-class young maiden. She looks directly out at the viewer holding abundant baskets filled with roses, lilacs and pansies. The artist spared no detail, painting her ringlet curls, the flowers, and the elaborate lace collar and sleeves of her blouse with exacting precision.

A sculpture by Abastenia St. Leger Eberle titled "Windy Doorstep" and cast in New York is a rare early example dated 1910. It was exhibited at the National Academy of Design and subsequently purchased by four museums. Eberle worked with Anna Vaughn Hyatt Huntington on early joint commissions and was a contemporary of the Ashcan school in New York.
