By: Gray's Auctioneers & Appraisers
Fine art will be offered in abundance, starting with lots 1 and 2, a pair of oil on board paintings by Harold Newton, a founder of the legendary Florida Highwaymen group of artists. Both paintings depict a beach by moonlight, gently lapping waves and palm trees rustling in the warm evening breezes. The glow of the moon appears to be peeking out from under the frame, a masterful, elegant trick of the eye. Both paintings carry estimates of $3,000-$5,000.
Lots 9 and 10 are beautifully rendered oil on canvas domestic scenes with figures that appear to have been painted by the same Old Master artist, in the style of the Dutch or Antwerp Old Masters from the 17th or 18th century. Both are unsigned and each one measures 28 ½ inches by 16 ¾ inches. They have been assigned reasonable pre-sale estimates of $5,000-$7,000 each.
Lot 11 is a charming portrait of a young girl in a white dress by the American artist Henry Inman (1801-1846). Inman was an accomplished portrait, genre and landscape painter, but he truly excelled in portrait painting. Among his many subjects were prominent political figures, Native Americans, British luminaries and others. The lovely portrait in the auction is expected to change hands for $2,000-$4,000.
In all, 355 lots will come up for bid. The full catalog is up and online now and pre-bidding is open at GraysAuctioneers.com (https://auctions.graysauctioneers.com/
