MILFORD, Conn. - Sept. 8, 2020 - PRLog -- Shannon's fall auction on Thursday, September 17th, at 6 pm Eastern time, will be presented in a 180-page color catalog filled with important paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture.

The centerpiece of the sale is the Jeanne and Carroll Berry Collection, assembled with great care over the past 30 years. The collection includes works by sixteen of the original "Irascible Eighteen." The Berrys knew "advanced art" when they saw it and collected works by these leading Abstract Expressionist artists ahead of the trend. \

Leading offerings from the collection are a work on paper by Adolph Gottlieb from his Burst series (est. $80,000-$120,000); a Jackson Pollock work on paper from 1952-1956 (est. $80,000-$120,000); and a Mark Rothko work on paper from circa 1948 (est. $60,000-$80,000). Other artists represented in the collection include Robert Motherwell, Hans Hoffman, Willem DeKooning, Richard Pousette-Dart and Ad Reinhardt.

Modern Art is led by a selection of works from the collection of Manhattan art patron and philanthropist Vera List, including Picasso's famed etching Le Repas Frugal (est. $80,000-$120,000); and an original Marc Chagall watercolor and ink on paper titled L'Ombrelle from 1939. Other highlights in this category include a Picasso bronze, titled Seated Woman (est. $40,000-$60,000); and a Kurt Schwitters collage titled Merz 149, from 1920 (est. $40,000-$60,000). American modernism is led by two works by Charles Burchfield, Steel Mill Homes and Buzzard Cabin, George Bellows' Farmer and Chickens, Thomas Hart Benton's Threshing Rice and a Still Life with Pears by Marsden Hartley.

Previews will be held by appointment only, from September 8-16, weekdays, from 11 am to 5 pm Eastern time; and Saturday, September 12th from 12 noon to 3 pm. The gallery will be closed to the public on the day of the auction, Thursday, September 17th. Consignments at Shannon's are accepted year-round.
