Early Fall Gallery Auction

The Definition of Discovery

Weekend of September 23

Discovery is the common thread running through our September auction line-up. To some, ‘the act of detecting something previously unrecognized as meaningful’ defines the word discovery, while others see ‘found’ and ‘uncovered’ as alternate definitions. All of these ideas apply to the auctions we’re assembling for you.
The top lot (so far) is a painting by the important German Secessionist Franz Stuck who lived from 1863 to 1928. Last seen over 100 years ago in important exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Copley Society in Boston, and the Dallas Art Association’s First Annual Exhibition of Contemporary and International Art, this lost treasure was just discovered hanging on the wall of a Kansas City home.
The idea of ‘detecting something previously unrecognized as meaningful’ describes the works here by accomplished artists we’ve discovered recently. These original works, direct from the estates of no less than five artists, will be offered alongside hundreds of other examples by longstanding painters of note.
This is to say nothing of the treasures and objet d'art we’ve detected in - and gathered from - homes and institutions across five states.
Stay tuned while we assemble this corps of discoveries for your inspection, and check back for updates. We’re working to uncover something for everyone.
