Another auction this weekend: Swann Galleries

I saw an ad in the paper for an upcoming auction at Swann Galleries. I had not been familiar with them so we plan to go this weekend. The next auction is of African-American Fine Art. The auction will be February 23rd and the preview began today through February 23rd at Noon. This is a link to the on-line catalogue.

Admittedly we don't know very much about African-American art, but this will be a chance to start to learn, as well as check out a 'new' auction house. The prices are also a bit out of our range. I found myself drawn to this artist who has a number of paintings represented in the catalogue.


Swann Galleries: Romare Bearden (1911- 1988) $12,000 - $18,000

The gallery is at 104 East 25th Street so we may have a chance to try a Malaysian restaurant we've heard about - Laut, 15 East 17th Street. As always, going to an auction preview should be an event that includes lunch!
