The oil on board rendering by Franz Johnston (1888-1949), titled The Battlement, Lake of the Woods, measures 13 inches by 10 ½ inches and is expected to climb to $22,000-$30,000. It is a vibrant and rare example, with strong brush strokes and content that's typical of 'The Group Impressionism'. Johnston resigned from the Group in 1924 as his style became more "realistic".
The oil on panel by Alexander Young Jackson (1882-1974) is titled St. Lawrence South Shore Village (circa 1945) and measures 10 ½ inches by 13 ½ inches (estimate: $18,000-$28,000)
The one-piece Adam-style corner cupboard, made in Canada around 1835, features a fluted frieze on the cornice and astragal glazing on the upper doors. Each upper door has 13 panes of glass, while the lower section has two flat paneled doors above a bracket base. The cupboard, in untouched condition, is 84 inches tall by 50 inches wide and is expected to hit $8,000-$12,000.
Also featured will be Part 2 of the many collections of Marty Osler. Part 1, held in April 2021, was led by a select offering of decoys, fishing reels and rods, many by Hardy Bros. of England. The decoy collection was primarily Canadian and included examples by Carl O. Rankin, Frank Dolsen, Billy Ellis and Ken Anger. Part 2 will focus on select Canadiana and decorative arts.
